This is coolbert:
Here is another one you have to put in the "OH SHIT, OH DAMN!!!" category.
"China Has the NSA For Lunch"
Thanks to StrategyPage.
Read it over. Very interesting and disturbing.
After over sixty years of frenzied work in the intelligence and security field, the U.S. government is still UNABLE to differentiate friend from foe to the degree desired. And after taking monumental efforts to make sure security is sound - - yet still - - this sort of thing occurs!!?? Incompetence at a major level of command is to blame??!! We probably will never hear the full story!
Clever, guileful, inspired and successful Chinese intelligence service operation at work!! The characteristic signature of Chinese intelligence at work too? Working ONLY with Chinese nationals or ethnic Chinese, regardless of citizenship! ONLY!
Someone should have seen this coming a long way off!!
With the bonus of being able to feed DECEPTION to your main rival in the world!!
