China Spying in the USA

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is in Beijing asking China to stop its increasingly aggressive cyberattacks. But maybe he should come home. Once again, another Chinese spying operation has been uncovered here in America.

Friday, a defense contractor was arrested in Hawaii. He was charged with passing secret information to a Chinese agent regarding America's war preparations and nuclear weapons. But that's not all.

Sunday Bo Jiang, a contractor at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, was arrested at Dulles International Airport. He was carrying several laptops, hard drives and memory cards.

Yesterday Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) exposed the fact that the Obama Administration has allowed hundreds of Chinese nationals to work at the Langley Research Center -- a key facility that conducts classified research for America's space defense technologies. But this was not a cultural exchange program.

The Chinese do not allow American nationals to work in their space program because the Chinese space program is owned lock, stock and barrel by the People's Liberation Army. That very likely means that the people China is sending here, who we are allowing into the Langley facility, are controlled by the Chinese military.

We've been down this road before. Remember the Loral Space scandal during the Clinton Administration? This is just another example of the ongoing naivety when it comes to protecting America's national security from the Chinese.
