Skip to comments.How Clinton sold the US out to China's military
Posted on 10/05/2003 8:36:25 PM PDT by Lando Lincoln
A number of years ago I wrote several articles on the extent to which the Clinton presidency had seriously endangered US national security by selling what had been highly classified technology to Beijing. At the time I sarcastically referred to Clinton as the Manchurian Candidate or clone, for which I and the remaining contents of my article were subjected to considerable abuse by Clinton fans.
Ironically, just as the White House is being falsely accused by Democrats and their media flunkeys of betraying a CIA agent, the recent release of formerly classified information has vindicated my accusation of treason against Bill Clinton.
But first I must recap: I pointed that it is no secret that when Clinton, aka "nanren men zai hua sheng dun" (this translates into our man in Washington), abolished the Coordinating Committee for Multilateral Export Controls (COCOM) in 1993 he outraged the British who warned him that his decision to permit the export to China of high-tech material with military applications would allow Beijing's military machine to leapfrog years of military research and spending and put the West at risk.
I cannot say with any certainty whether 10 Downing Street was really surprised by Clinton's decision but I can say with a considerable degree of accuracy that British intelligence was not. It should go without saying that British intelligence gave Blair a complete assessment of Clinton's actions and apparent motives.
I suspect this assessment had more to do with London's outrage rather than Clinton's action. But this, I admit, is pure conjecture on my part. Nevertheless, that British intelligence took a keen interest in Clinton's behaviour, an interest that goes back to his student days, is something that should, in my opinion, have alerted thinking Americans to the true nature of Clinton's character.
What only a few Americans know is that Special Branch supplies British intelligence with dossiers detailing the activities of every foreign student's political activities and has done so for decades. (Special Branch deals with subversion and potential subversion and has powers of arrest. It also acts as the executive arm of MI5. No wonder the CIA envies the latitude granted to its British counterparts.).
Whether Clinton's dossier was officially passed on to American intelligence is another matter. That American intelligence would have been given unofficial access is something I do not doubt for a moment. Once these facts are understood, London's reaction becomes more understandable. Naturally, this did not stop Blair from glad-handing his good mate Bill, whom he now considers to be a little "weird".
The irony is that not only did the British know well before the American public that Clinton's action would enable China to buy American supercomputers that would be used to build sophisticated nuclear-guidance systems they also knew the details of those agreements.
There was nothing in the agreements between Beijing and Silicon Graphics, Loral Corporation, the Hughes Corporation, etc, that British intelligence didn't know, even down to the last comma. What is more important is that I have good reason to believe that British intelligence is equally acquainted with any unofficial arrangements these 'patriotic' American executives may have made with Beijing.
This, of course, raises the question of whether American intelligence unofficially gave the British a free hand in this matter in order to save itself from any possible embarrassment or whether the British acted entirely on their own initiative. Though the circumstances of my education allowed me to make interesting British friends I still cannot provide a definitive answer. Anyhow, I don't doubt that the irony of the situation will not be lost on my readers.
I am now very happy to announce that the release of newly declassified documents confirmed my accusations that Clinton had approved the sale to Beijing of advanced technology that can be used to wage nuclear warfare. Part of this technology consisted of radiation-hardened chips.
Unfortunately, how much Beijing paid to get this technology is probably known only to the regime because of the means by which the payments were made.
It is obvious that Clinton could not have possibly acted alone. His main accomplices were greedy executives with strong ties to the Democratic Party. So I shall paraphrase a question I asked so long ago: How can one deal with the treasonable activities of executives whose favourite colour is green without exposing a former president as a traitor? One can't, and the result is that these executives will stay rich and Clinton's treason will go unpunished.
Now it is my belief that Clinton does not believe he did anything wrong. In his narcissistic world, anything that serves his interest is moral. He has permanently confused his pathological view of his Self with the national interest. The world of politics would be well rid of him and his equally guilty wife.
Clinton's corruption just never ends, does it?
