(CNSNews.com) – Intruders from China hacked into computers and stole the blueprints for America’s new joint strike fighter planes, the F-35 and F-22, according to the chairman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations and Management.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) made the statement during a Tuesday hearing on cyber security.
