The Chinese threat: More evidence
Ah, those Chinese. What a well-rounded and cunning adversary they are.
First they poisoned our pets with tainted food. Then they went after our babies with date-rape chemicals on toys. And now they've again been caught stealing our national secrets.
The feds arrested four people on Monday in two separate espionage cases. Among them:
Charged with selling secrets to foreign agents is Greg William Bergersen, 51, of Alexandria, Va. The one-time director of the Navy's command, control, communications and intelligence office held a top-secret clearance. He most recently was a weapons system analyst for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency. But in his old post, he may have had access to this nation's most secret war-fighting data.
Former Rockwell International and Boeing engineer Dongfan "Greg" Chung, 72, of Orange, Calif., is accused, in part, of supplying proprietary information to China on U.S. military aircraft and even the space shuttle.
Of course, Chinese spies are a lot like roaches -- there aren't only one or two. And these aren't the only operations the Chinese have going on in the world. As Newsmax's Joachim Bamrud detailed in Sunday's Trib, the Chinese have been expanding their economic and political influence in Latin America.
Some have hinted at it but we'll say it: The moves are a direct threat to U.S. national security. And it's a threat that could make the Islamofascists look like pikers.
