    Caught on Tape: Selling America's Secrets

    Link

    Feb. 25, 2010
    (CBS) "60 Minutes" has obtained an FBI videotape showing a Defense Department employee selling secrets to a Chinese spy for cash. The video, which has never been made public before, offers a rare glimpse into the secretive world of espionage and illustrates how China’s spying may now pose the biggest espionage threat to the U.S.
    China may be the number-one espionage threat now. "The Chinese are the biggest problem we have with respect to the level of effort that they’re devoting against us, versus the level of attention we are giving to them," says Michelle Van Cleave, once America’s top counter-intelligence officer who coordinated the hunt for foreign spies from 2003 to 2006.
    "Definitely, without a doubt," the Chinese focus most of their espionage on the U.S., says Fengzhi Li, who once recruited spies for China's Ministry of State Security and is now in the U.S. seeking asylum.
    The Chinese are really cleaning up in the US. We need to start shooting the bastards when we find them.

    The Chinese will not permit the US to shoot traitors.

    While I dont defend what the Chinese do in any way, I must wonder why you and other conservatives have this almost ingrown tendency to create and expand conflicts all over the world...

    After all, it is not like the US is not spying on China... and does not butt its head in the affairs of other nations around the world.

    Shooting all Chinese? Yeah, brilliant idea.

    Well China's defense budget, which happens to be less than 1/10th what ours is, evidently is another threat to them..... as in another excuse to throw more money at defense contractors and exchange more liberty for promises of security.

    We've been spying on them for just as long as they've been spying on us.

    Where did America get this massive set of double standards?

    Hopefully those Defense Department employees are treated like the rat traitors they are and shot.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
