Clinton's Nuclear Legacy

1996 Waiver for Radiation Hardened Chips to China

Newly declassified documents show that President Bill Clinton personally approved the transfer to China of advanced space technology that can be used for nuclear combat. The documents show that in 1996 Clinton approved the export of radiation hardened chip sets to China.

"Waivers may be granted upon a national interest determination," states a Commerce Department document titled "U.S. Sanctions on China."

"The President has approved a series of satellite related waivers in recent months, most recently in November, 1996 for export of radiation hardened chip sets for a Chinese meteorological satellite," noted the Commerce Department documents.

These special computer chips are designed to function while being bombarded by intense radiation. Radiation hardened chips are considered critical for atomic warfare and are required by advanced nuclear tipped missiles.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act, a Washington-based political watchdog group.

Several documents were withheld from release by the U.S. Commerce Department for commercial and personal privacy exemptions, but none of the documents were withheld for national security reasons. Judicial Watch is expected to appeal the withholdings.

Decade of Betrayal

U.S. intelligence sources stated that the newly released documents illustrate the extent to which the Clinton White House placed trade – and trade with China specifically – above national security.

"In all likelihood we will be glowing in the dark before we discover the true extent of the Clinton decade of betrayal," stated Rick Fisher, Asian Security Fellow at the Center for Security Policy.

"If it was indeed intended for a new PRC weather satellite, then it is possible that it was used for their new polar orbit weather satellites. This is significant because the Chinese themselves acknowledge that their polar orbit weather satellites directly contribute to their long-range missile targeting capability. This becomes even more important for their new smaller but more accurate warheads, used on their new DF-31, DF-31A, DF-5 Mod2 and JL-2 missiles. If they encounter significant weather, warhead accuracy degrades, reducing their utility," stated Fisher.

"Inasmuch as similar U.S. military weather satellites perform the same missions, the Clinton Administration had to have known they were assisting a PLA strategic military capability," concluded Fisher.

In addition, the Chinese military is clearly interested in acquiring advanced radiation hardened computer chips for its strategic nuclear arsenal.

U.S. Chips for PRC Nukes

Currently, China has only liquid fueled, long-range missiles, and the majority of them are based inside underground silos. These long-range rockets are reported to be "bore-sighted" – meaning the underground silos are aimed directly at target cities inside the United States.

The Chinese army is now attempting to shift its strategic nuclear arsenal to a solid-fuel "launch on command" capability. These new missiles are rail- and road-mobile and require sophisticated electronic guidance systems to accurately strike their intended targets.

As part of this upgrade, the Chinese army is also modifying its nuclear warhead designs to arm new survivable missiles such as the DF-31 and JL-2. Chinese engineers are planning to equip these new missiles with MIRV technology, allowing each missile to carry multiple nuclear warheads.

Again, the U.S. radiation hardened computer chip technology is a logical addition to the reconfiguration and upgrade of Chinese nuclear weapons.

Stolen U.S. Chips

Another critical element of the Clinton-supplied waiver is the fact that it took place during an investigation of Chinese espionage into missing U.S. radiation hardened satellite chips.

In February 1996, a Chinese Long March rocket carrying a Loral Intelsat satellite failed and crashed on lift-off. The Loral Intelsat payload was badly damaged. The Chinese intended to launch the Loral satellite into deep space as they had been paid to do by Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz.

However, fate took a twisted path, and so did the Chinese rocket. The Long March rocket failed on launch and crashed into a nearby Chinese village, killing over 200 innocent civilians. The failure of the Long March allowed the U.S. to recover the sealed satellite guidance box, which revealed the control board of radiation-hardened chips was missing.

The missing board from the Loral Intelsat satellite is no mystery. It quickly became obvious that Chinese engineers removed the special electronics and kept the board for examination. The stolen Loral electronics consist of radiation hardened, encrypted telemetry chips, stored in a secure flight control box similar to those found on airliners. The NSA changed all U.S. satellite codes as a result of the stolen Loral chips, costing American taxpayers millions of dollars.

1996 Illegal Campaign Donations

Another factor involved in the November 1996 waiver issued by then-President Clinton is the fact that illegal money entered the U.S. elections from the Chinese army. The money was donated to the DNC from a variety of sources including convicted Chinagate figures John Huang, Charlie "Yah-Lin" Trie and Johnny Chung.

The 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign readily accepted much of the money from the Chinese army sources without question, and in some cases took these donations in cash. The allegations of Chinese espionage and illegal campaign donations were never investigated properly.

The successful effort by China to obtain U.S. microchip technology included espionage, sabotage and perhaps bribery. The red intelligence windfall freed the Chinese army to more accurately target American cities with atomic weapons using advanced U.S technology.

The legacy that President Clinton left for the 21st century is a modern Chinese army equipped for global nuclear war.

HO-HUM......unfortunately.........wasn't this all part of the Cox report???? The likelihood of this going anywhere is about as likely as me acquiring a Honus Wagoner baseball card..........I'm looking for some action on the witness stand when Peter Paul goes to trial.......if HE lives to tell it!!!!

And will anyone be called on the carpet for this. Hell, no. Not until millions are burned to a crisp, and even then, there will be a whitewash.

Larry will attack anoyne who those who lines his pockets will direct him to.

Larry...the only lawyer in America to have lost every lawsuit except for the one where he sued his own mother.
I am starting to think his mother conspired with him because she felt sorry for little lawrence.

Go Larry, go!

Larry is running for Senator from Florida, so it was deemed important for JW to dust off some old allegations against Clinton. For the last three years, they've all been against Bush, Cheney, and DeLay. Oops.

Well, of course, don't we all recall that "character doesn't count"? What exactly did we think we were electing back in '92?

But Larry is busy collecting funds for his run for Florida office. Donations, donations, donations.

Scorecard: Larry 0, Every Endeavour He's Ever Tried: 4,578

Well, in '92 conservatives didn't believe an elected president would commit treason. Democrats, of course, didn't care then and don't care now, so they elect the treasonous bastard's first bitch to be the Senator from New York. What sinkEmperor clintoon deserves he will never receive because this nation has too many democrat voters who don't give a damn about this nation or truth because the democrat party has sold them on avoiding responsibility. Frankly, our enemies have our number and will succeed in destroying America because of people like the clintons and the criminal enterprise democrat party. [Even the Mafia saw a Hitler/Stalin win as the end to organized crime. Clinton and the democrats aren't smart enough to see that they've aided and abetted and continue to adi and abet our mortal enemies, and that when the ones they're assisting succeed with their agenda, nothing will remain for the democrats to manipulate, no power will be left for them to kill, steal, and lie to acquire! So, how smart are our fellow Americans that they keep electing these bastards?]

What!!??

bill clinton sold us out to the Chinese? Who would ever have dreamed such a thing?

Oh, wait a minute, that's old news. We overlooked that long ago. Let's freak over something really serious and topical, like George Bush's 16 words in a speech he gave two years ago!!

I don't know. But I know a FOIA doesn't cost as much as what JW is saying they are spending.

I sure would like to know his personal assets. Aren't they required to make them public?

So, this proves beyond any resonable doubt that Bill Clinton was/is the single worst traitor in American history and has done/will do the most damage any single individual has ever done to American national security. So what? Everyone knows Clinton will never be punished for the crimes he committed. Everyone knows that he isn't done committing crimes against America. You Republicans will never let the poor guy go... I mean this is all such old news. It is all about sex anyway, and everybody lies about sex, don'they? Now... George Bush "lying" about yellowcake, now that is a story!

Bill Clinton- The real-life Manchurian Candidate.

I'm still hopeful that he and Hill will rot in jail or be executed for treason.
