The world is laughing at us. It has come to light that the Obama administration has allowed hundreds of Chinese nationals — who are closely associated with the Chinese Liberation Army — to work in a sensitive area of NASA’s Langley Research Center. What could possibly go wrong?
Here’s what: one of these nationals, Bo Jiang, was arrested on Monday at Dulles International Airport for apparently attempting to take sensitive information out of the US. Don’t give our security apparatus too much of a slap on the back for apprehending him, though, as Jiang had previously succeeded in leaving the country with a laptop containing sensitive information.
And what’s in it for us in granting all this access to Chinese PLA operatives? Well, with stupidity you no get eggroll. In an interview on the subject with Washington DC’s WMAL-FM, Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) “revealed that the program is not meant to be a cultural exchange, as Americans are not invited to work in Beijing’s counterpart facilities,” writes Breitbart.
But it is what we don’t know that is likely most damaging. If hundreds of Chinese PLA operatives have access to the Langley Research Center, how many are placed in other sensitive American facilities? And if Jiang has transferred sensitive information, how many other foreign spies have done so but haven’t been caught?
There was a saner time when an enemy power’s nationals would be viewed with suspicion. But I suppose that’s considered racial/ethnic profiling now, the kind of prejudice that Obama’s minions just won’t tolerate. Hey, why would Chinese citizens place the interests of their country ahead of those of a foreign power (that’s us), except for the fact that this is man’s nature and has been the practice of virtually everyone who has ever lived? Of course, though, since the internationalist left has no such allegiance to their country, this fact may elude them.
Vladimir Lenin once said that we would sell the communists the rope with which they hang us — little did he know that we’d end up giving it away. The Chinese regime is a foe, and a burgeoning, dangerous one at that. It has expressed a desire to be the world’s hegemon, and, of course, this isn’t surprising among nationalistic peoples (which is everyone except Westerners, it seems). China is perhaps the biggest external threat we face.
What Obama is guilty of here is nothing less than treason. No, I don’t care to argue about whether he is purposely trying to undermine our nation or is simply acting in accordance with a multicultural, citizen-of-the-world mindset. Just because a doctor commits malpractice without malice doesn’t mean he won’t be hit with a devastating lawsuit.
But I guess Obama, like Bill Clinton before him, is just redistributing the technology. Hey, forget Vegetius. If you want war, prepare for peace.
