Right on the money.

8. Correct. An immigrant alien with a green card is a "U.S. person" as defined by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and can be allowed access to export-controlled information without an export license as long as the information is not classified.

Keep in mind, however, that the rules that apply to an immigrant alien who possesses a green card for permanent residence in the U.S. are very confusing.  For the purpose of export control regulations, such an individual is a "U.S. person" and can be allowed access to export-controlled information without an export license. If the export controlled information is classified, however, the regulations for release of classified information apply. According to the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual, a permanent resident with a green card is still a foreign national and not a "U.S. person." Therefore, such an individual cannot have access to classified export-controlled information.

When in doubt about the applicable definition of a "U.S. person," "U.S. national," and "foreign national," check with your security office.
