The Pentagon is concerned that a former National Security Agency contractor who is now in Hong Kong will compromise top-secret electronic intelligence programs targeted against China, according to a defense official.
Edward Snowden, the former NSA technician who surfaced in Hong Kong Sunday, worked on highly classified electronic intelligence programs targeting China at the NSAs Kunia facility in Hawaii.
Snowdens exact whereabouts are not known. He told the South China Morning Post in an interview published Wednesday that he plans to remain in the former British colony, something that likely would upset U.S.-China relations. My intention is to ask the courts and people of Hong Kong to decide my fate, he was quoted as saying.
Hong Kong is led by a chief executive who follows Beijings dictates on all security and foreign policy matters.
Snowden also provided documents to the newspaper showing that NSA has been hacking into computers in Hong Kong and in mainland China since 2009. None revealed data on Chinese military systems, he said.
According to the report, Snowden claimed there were hundreds of NSA intelligence targets in Hong Kong and the mainland.
We hack network backboneslike huge internet routers, basicallythat give us access to the communications of hundreds of thousands of computers without having to hack every single one, he said.

Or they could just look at their own files or ask any of Snowden’s Chinese co-workers. LOL
Hey! NSA dimwits! Snowden has already passed everything he knows on to the Chinese.
So what? Clinton started selling dual-use technology to the Chinese in the 90’s and got away with it.
NSA = Red Chinese....’What difference does it make?’
The Powers That Be can’t seem to decide whether this guy is a low level fake who’s making things up and shouldn’t be trusted, or a credible, dire threat to national security.
“Officials Worried Snowden Will Pass Secrets to Chinese.”
And how would that be worse than Obama having them?
Gee, maybe they should stop taking all the citizen’s secrets first.......
We haven’t had any secrets from the Chinese for a very long time. Our contract defense industries are full of Chinese nationals and much of our “secret” tech is made by China.
I’d be really interested in knowing how much Chinese technology is in the Utah data center.
Ask Bubba how that works...
What secrets? About Maj. Nidal Hassan, or about the Tsarnaev brothers? Oh, excuse me, I remember now that those were in plain sight, not in the NSA data mine.
Does the commie 0bozo think the US should be spying on the commie Chinese?
I thought Snowden was a full of it, a nobody, and what Snowden claimed can be done, isn’t possible. How can he possibly give anything of value to the Chinese?
How many computers from Lenovo are there in Utah with back doors to the Peoples’ Army?
Are these the same Officials that said the Chinese have stolen every secret the US has ?
What’s the big deal......the Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House, State Dept., Defense Dept., Justice Dept., .....
It was probably the blue Army service uniform
Will Snowden give the Chinese proof 0bama was born in Kenya?
