Same article, but I am reading something much different.
The chips turned out to be counterfeits from China, but it could have been even worse. Instead of crappy Chinese fakes being put into Navy weapons systems, the chips could have been hacked, able to shut off a missile in the event of war or lie around just waiting to malfunction.
Could have been are the key words. This article is nothing but speculation. And the original post here is misleading. Although I do agree that using those parts in missles is not wise.

The US government and the Pentagon need to wake the hell up and start building high tech factories like TMSC in the US, develop rare earth material mining and stop buying freaking US military parts from China!
