Here’s a question for you: do you think China hires white Americans to work for their intelligence services simply because they were born in China?
I’ll give you two guesses, and reveal the answer at the end of this article.
A former CIA officer was sentenced Friday to 19 years in prison for conspiring to deliver classified information to China in a case that touched on the mysterious unraveling of the agency’s informant network in China but did little to solve it.
The former officer, Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 55, pleaded guilty in May to conspiring with Chinese intelligence agents starting in 2010, after he left the agency. Prosecutors detailed a long financial paper trail that they said showed that Lee received more than $840,000 for his work.
Lee, an Army veteran, worked for the CIA from 1994 to 2007, including in China. After he resigned, he formed a tobacco company in Hong Kong with an associate who had ties to the Chinese intelligence community. Lee then began meeting with agents from China’s Ministry of State Security, who assigned him tasks he admitted to taking on and offered to “take care of him for life.”
While working in Hong Kong in 2010, Lee reapplied for employment with the CIA but misled U.S. officials repeatedly in interviews about his dealings with Chinese intelligence officers and the source of his income.
Around the time Lee began speaking to Chinese agents, the CIA was rocked by major setbacks in China as its once-robust espionage network there began to fall apart. Between 2010 and 2012, dozens of CIA informants in China disappeared, either jailed or killed, embroiling the agency in an internal debate about how Chinese intelligence officers had identified the informants. Many within the agency came to believe that a mole had exposed U.S. informants, and Lee became a main suspect.
But FBI agents who investigated whether he was the culprit passed on an opportunity to arrest him in the United States in 2013, allowing him to travel back to Hong Kong even after finding classified information in his luggage. FBI agents had also covertly entered a hotel room Lee occupied in 2012, finding handwritten notes detailing the names and numbers of at least eight CIA sources that he had handled in his capacity as a case officer.
The investigators apparently decided that by continuing to quietly monitor Lee, they might glean more clues about the disappearing CIA informants in China. But even after his arrest in 2018 on the same charge the CIA was prepared to bring in 2013, they were unable to determine whether Lee was involved in the disclosures to Chinese intelligence operatives.
Because of Lee’s plea agreement, in which he admitted to one count of possessing information classified as secret — a lower level than top secret — prosecutors asked for a relatively lighter sentence of roughly 22 to 27 years, rather than life in prison.
lol imagine not executing a traitor spy who gave secrets to a foreign government that led to the death of other agents.
Except he wasn’t a “traitor,” was he?
He was a Chinaman, serving the nation of China.
In fact, his actions were patriotic.
The answer to the question at the beginning of the article is “no.”
The Chinese do not hire foreigners born in their country to work as spies dealing with sensitive information, nor do they hire them for any government position, or consider them to be “Chinese” simply because they were born in China.
This “birthplace is identity and allegiance” is an entirely Western concept invented by the Jews. It is idiotic.
The funny thing here is: I doubt you could find an ethnic Russian working for the CIA in any other capacity than as an overseas spy. Certainly, you won’t find one dealing with sensitive information, such as the identities of other agents, unless it is absolute need-to-know (even then they would spread out the information between different agents, so that no single agent could rat out “dozens” of other agents).
I guess that the Jews who run the CIA weren’t viewing Chinamen with the same skepticism that they view Russians.
Though I suspect they have started doing so.
