On guard against the Chinese
The FBI, whose agents are the frontline troops in the furtive wars of foreign counterintelligence and cyber warfare, is both alarmed and concerned about the increasing numbers of Chinese agents involved in espionage in the United States. Targets sought by the several thousand Chinese agents “loose” in the United States focus on America’s cutting edge technology — computer technology, research and sensitive defense information, it says. The FBI believes that a high proportion of all Chinese visitors have been tasked with missions for their government. A recent bureau report claims there are at least 3,000 Chinese-operated front companies in the United States whose actual business was to direct espionage efforts.
