The Chinese government has been making great efforts to steal US technology.  As part of that they have been paying professors at american universities.  It is amazing the number of academics who have been willing to sell themselves and their talents.  I am glad to see the government cracking down on this.

This is a cool story. Sadly, the young don’t have any knowledge of the aspects of the Cold War, such as this.

I posted this yesterday.  Well, here is another case.  Unfortunately the universities involved have little incentive to crack down on this type of behavior.  The USA needs to restrict foreign students from some countries and incentivize the universities to monitor for this type of espionage.

We need to be more aware of this

The US should not be letter in so many students to study at US universities, especially from countries that are hostile to our interests.  This goes for military personnel in light of the Pensacola terror attack.

Are the Russians tapping into undersea cables?  Is this ship involved?  I’d bet the answer to both questions is yes.

This story.  How could any American do this to their country? (h/t Jeff “Inch High” Groves.)
