China/Russia Spying on the U.S. as much as Cold War times.


www.foxnews.com

WASHINGTON — China and Russia are spying on the United States nearly as much as they did during the Cold War, according to the top U.S. intelligence official.

Mike McConnell, the director of national intelligence, says in testimony prepared for a Tuesday congressional hearing that a law passed last month expanding the U.S. government's eavesdropping power is needed to protect not just against terrorists but also against more traditional potential adversaries, such as those two Cold War foes.

"China and Russia's foreign intelligence services are among the most aggressive in collecting against sensitive and protected U.S. systems, facilities and development projects, and their efforts are approaching Cold War levels," McConnell says in his testimony. "Foreign intelligence information concerning the plans, activities and intentions of foreign powers and their agents is critical to protect the nation and preserve our security."

I believe it.I'm sure we are spying as much or more than them.Anyone smell even more relaxed spying laws coming?

Patriot act #35 anyone?


They are using this to justify the law that was "snuck"by cpngress before their summer break.Pretty good feeling knowing that your congress doesn't read all of the papers they sign.Sigh.
