Chinese SPY unloading our secrets

So I first heard of this on the radio, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The Chicoms now have our next generation stealth submarine tech. He also gave them the next gen of AEGIS: The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System is a US Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency program developed to provide a last line of defense against ballistic missiles. Which the chicoms have already integrated onto two of their naval vessels. We have to watch them. They instigate problems between the US and others (Iraq, Iran, Russia, N. Korea) to keep us from looking at the BIG picture of what they are doing. I stand by my previous statements that we will go to war with China in the next 50 years! The question is; Will we have let our defences down and not be able to stop the chicoms from taking over the world, or will we grow a pair and stop pretending our enemies don't exist? Chinese, Muslim or whoever intends to ruin the Greatest Nation on God's green Earth.

Engineer guilty in military secrets case
By GILLIAN FLACCUS, Associated Press WriterThu May 10, 4:29 PM ET

Jurors convicted a Chinese-born engineer Thursday of conspiring to export U.S. defense technology to China, including data on an electronic propulsion system that could make submarines virtually undetectable.
Chi Mak also was found guilty of being an unregistered foreign agent. Prosecutors had dropped a charge of actually exporting defense articles.
When the verdict was read, Mak at first showed no emotion but then appeared to hold back tears as defense attorney Marilyn Bednarsky teared up and rubbed his back. Defense attorney Ron Kaye's face was flush.
Mak faces up to 35 years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 10.
Mak, 66, acknowledged during the trial that he copied classified documents from his employer, a defense contractor, and kept copies in his office. He maintained he didn't realize at the time that making the copies was illegal.
Kaye said the defense team still believes Mak is innocent.
"We believe the facts of the case have been manipulated, and we believe Mr. Mak didn't necessarily get a fair trial," Kaye said.
In many instances, the government was allowed to present classified information to U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney in his chambers, and the defense team did not receive some classified information about a request by the FBI to bug Chi Mak's house, Kaye said.
"We were confident from the start and we're very happy with the verdict," Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Staples said.
Authorities believe Mak, a naturalized U.S. citizen, took thousands of pages of documents from his employer, Power Paragon of Anaheim, and gave them to his brother, who prosecutors say passed them along to Chinese authorities for years.
Mak was arrested in 2005 in Los Angeles after FBI agents stopped his brother and sister-in-law as they boarded a flight to Hong Kong. Investigators said they found three encrypted CDs in their luggage containing sensitive military documents.
Staples said the government may use the verdict to try to negotiate plea bargains with members of his family who are awaiting trial this month. Mak's wife, brother and other relatives have pleaded not guilty.
The six-week trial featured testimony from a parade of FBI agents, U.S. Navy officials and encryption and espionage experts.
Key to the case was the government's allegation that Mak confessed to the conspiracy — and even identified his Chinese government handler and specific restricted documents — during an untaped jailhouse interview two days after his arrest.
Mak testified he never confessed during that interview, but admitted that he lied repeatedly in an earlier taped interview about the number of times he had visited China and when he told authorities he didn't have friends or relatives there. He said he felt intimidated during the interrogation.
"This is why I lied," he said. "They were pushing me that night."
Mak's attorneys had focused on the propulsion system documents found in his brother's luggage at Los Angeles International Airport.
Mak said he believed he was doing nothing wrong by giving the documents to his brother to take out of the country because they were papers that had been presented previously at international
