Curious that a writer uses "national security" as a reason for supporting Hudbay's appeal of a federal judge's ruling that blocks the proposed copper mine in the Santa Rita Mountains. Since when does a private company located in a foreign country owe any allegiance to America? Hudbay can just as well sell American copper to a foreign adversary, like China for example, as sell it in the United States. This supposed national security argument is fatally flawed, not the judge's decision.
