ITAR May Prevent Non-US Space Tourist

According to Aviation Week, current ITAR rules currently prevent non-us passengers from flying to space with US companies. Apparently just riding on a space vehicle is enough to learn dangerous secrets about rockets.

I am not sure how this affects Virgin Galactic, which is a British company flying US built space ships. ITAR really needs an overhaul.
