Skip to comments.FBI probe of defense tech allegedly leaked from NASA stonewalled, sources say

A four-year FBI investigation into the transfer of classified weapons technology to China and other countries from NASAs Ames Research Center is being stonewalled by government officials, sources tell FoxNews.com.
Documents obtained by FoxNews.com, which summarize these and other allegations and were given to congressional sources last week by a whistle-blower, described how a secret grand jury was to be convened in February 2011 to hear testimony from informants in the case, including a senior NASA engineer. But federal prosecutor Gary Fry was removed from the case, which was then transferred from one office in the Northern District of California to another where, according to the documents, this case now appears to be stalled.
The information is staggering, the whistle-blower told FoxNews.com.
A Justice Department spokesman on Thursday told FoxNews.com it does not comment on grand jury proceedings, as a matter of longstanding policy. Fry, reached for comment late Thursday, also would not confirm or deny the claim.
The claims originate with several past and current NASA employees concerned with the systemic leak of highly sensitive information relating to missile defense systems, as well as what they call a troubled investigation into the leak.
The documents claim the FBI has been working with other agencies since 2009 on an investigation into foreign nationals working at Ames. This follows allegations by two Republican lawmakers earlier this month that the U.S. attorneys office in the Northern California district was ultimately denied by the Justice Department when it tried to proceed with indictments.

Another Obama “What difference does it make” event.
I get angry when I hear some asshat say the reason we have a second amendment is so people can go hunting. With this group in charge, it will be up to each citizen to protect from any invasion.
Didn’t Clinton give rocket secrets to the Chinese? and didn’t Obama send a drone over for Iran to study? Why do these people need other spies, when our Chief Executives are working for them?
Rand Paul needs to go after this.
Sounds like another ‘Wen Ho Lee’ type scandal. Hire foreigners, especially PRC nationals and expect them to refrain from spying - brilliant!
Makes me wonder if the Sentinel UAV hijack by Iran might in fact have been exactly that, instead of a stealthy sting.
It seems like a possibility to me.
Are you having trouble posting replies? Many times in the last 10 or so minutes when I click “reply” or other links my page goes back to the date and time of the crash 4 days ago.
Savage is really ticked off about it.....
I don’t blame him.
When the Peoples Republic of China is the obvious perpetrator of espionage against the U.S. the Obama White House sweeps it under the rug. The most recent case is the ongoing cyber spying by the Chinese Army. I have believed since he took office that Obama—via the Chicago-based cabal that controls him—is in the pay of foreign powers including China and Iran.
Just posted this regarding the seemingly more aggresive Chinese:
The letters allege the FBI had uncovered the ITAR violations, and the U.S. attorney was prepared to issue indictments. But it says the case has been stalled for more than a year, agents in the case were reassigned, and the statute of limitations on the violations is already beginning to expire.
It is our understanding that this illegal technology transfer may have involved classified Defense Department weapons system technology to foreign countries, including China, potentially with the tacit or direct approval of the centers leadership, the letters read.
Shades of 1995 Loral/Hughes//Schwartz-Armstrong 200-page fax deemed by May 1997 DOD report damaging to national security, made "legal" by Clinton waiver 1998 (remember, it's just about sex, not treason).

Bill Richardson tasked to block Notra Trulock and protect the chicom spy.
Now comes the Islamo-Commie who changed NASA's mission to Muslim Outreach, i.e., reach out and give Islamo-Commies our tech edge.
Traitor in the gates; hey, what time's Survivor.
Thanks for the ping!
