Last week, Senator Kennedy was busy chastising Defense Secretary Rumsfeld for "gross errors and mistakes" that occurred on his watch. So WHO was president and WHERE was Teddy when China was busy stealing U.S. technology that enables it to aim nukes at America's children???
The Washington Times: "Officials said one of the most damaging illegal technology exports to China took place in the late 1990s. In that case, China secretly obtained technology related to the Aegis battle management system, used in the most modern U.S. warships. A Chinese front company won a contract from the system manufacturer and then stole details about Aegis, according to FBI counterintelligence officials.
By 2004, China had deployed its first two Luyang II guided-missile destroyers, both equipped with the Chinese version of the Aegis system. The Aegis system is used for tracking and shooting at enemy aircraft and also is the heart of the Navy's new sea-based missile defense.
Earlier, in 1997, two American satellite companies, Space Systems/Loral and Hughes Space and Communications Co., violated U.S. export laws when they helped China fix an electrical glitch in the Long March space launch booster, which had direct applications for Chinese long-range missiles. Those missiles are aimed at U.S. cities.
