Dear ATS Readers, Writers,
The news this article brings to us is no surprise to me at all.
Chinese hackers have gained access to secret designs for a slew of sophisticated US weapons programs, officials said Tuesday, possibly
jeopardizing the American military's technological edge.
The breaches were part of a broad Chinese campaign of espionage against top US defense contractors and government agencies, officials said, confirming
a Washington Post account of a Pentagon report.
The Defense Science Board, a senior advisory group with government and civilian experts, concluded that digital hackers had gained access to designs
for two dozen major weapons systems critical to missile defenses, combat aircraft and naval ships, according to a Pentagon document cited by the
The cyber spying gave China access to advanced technology and could weaken the US military's advantage in the event of a conflict, the board said.
The Pentagon advisory report stopped short of accusing Beijing of stealing the designs, but the conclusions help explain recent American warnings to
the Chinese government.
"It's not clear how much of our stuff they got," a defense official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

I think this information explains why so many of the Chinese latest and greatest weapon systems, look nearly EXACTLY like the USA weapon systems. And
also explains their rapid deployment of these systems, all that R&D work was already done for them by Boeing, Lockheed, etc, etc.
I had said years ago that the Chinese were getting all sorts of classified data; and apparently it has not stopped.
Yeah, I know... that is what countries spy agency are supposed to do, and that is their jobs to do. BUT DANG!!
Couldn't the USA have done a much better job of protecting those secrets?
I also have a gut feeling a lot of it was also handed over to them by traitors.
I have also stated that these times we live in now are the most corrupt in mans history.
It was "probably" planned that way.. so that when the coming conflict gets going, no one has anything over on the opposing forces. Everything has
been levelled to an even playing field.
This will ensure it is a long and drawn out conflict, with maximum war profit potential for all involved.
Regardless of whether or not some may feel as I do about China... (trusting them as far as I could throw them); this information is very disturbing
and says a lot about how sloppy our protecting secrets has become.
