Posted on 06/13/2013 12:41:27 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
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?
Hey you stupid Pentagon A-holes, China already knows everything we know. Most of their spies are working at U.S. companies and some of them white and working for Obama.
They are not going after him because Nero thinks or knows he has major dirt on his gang. PERIOD.
He sent that message loud and clear with his first interview. Come after me and the flood gates open.
He probably copied a few hundred thousand dossiers of specific info. compiled on American Citizens.
This is just the 21st Century version of the FBI Files the Clintons used to blackmail and bribe with back in the 90s.
I think the government is more worried about what else he’ll tell the American people.
When, exactly, did the United States officially make the transformation from Constitutional Republic to Idiocracy? (Okay -- November, 2008!)
Bull-carp! Officials are worried that more American citizens will wake up to the treason that our politicians have committed against American citizens.
That and the fact that they are blackmarketing Network Routers and Switches with back doors in them so they need no boots on the ground.
What could possibly be left to find after Bubba and The Beast? lol
Well, because the Chinese are out to compromise America's security and the economy and slowly erode our global importance, and President Obama wouldn't...well he...never mind.
The problem with the NSA collecting all that data on US citizens, is that it creates an extremely valuable asset for foreign hackers to steal or search. That data should never ever even exist.
So give him immunity and let him testify in front of congress in a semi public forum. Let him pull up some of the documents subpoenaed by congress that DOJ of WH has refused to provide. Win win
Snowden also provided documents to the Chinese and some other dimwits right here on FR still think this is Snowden protecting our interests.
He’s proving he’s had a huge chip on his shoulder and laying blame on anyone one else for his own failures....now he’s going to play payback.
This guy is one dangerous individual...no telling who else he’s going to target....this isn’t just about the US Gov. this guy is on a roll and thinks he’s going to control our Gov. and anyone who stands in his way....HE”S THE ONE trying to CONTROL.....what a difference a few days can make.
If he does, then maybe we can get a LEGITIMATE birth certificate for "Barry" from them.
Oh, yeah - Payback’s a b!+*h !!!
Do you really think they have a choice? I think they well know the risk he is...but he’s hanging himself without anyones help.
I wouldn’t be surprised news agencies worldwide, and this with their intelligence organizations, don’t already have this guy in their sight and just letting him run til he hangs himself....then they’ll be no question he’ll be done...
Absolutely BRILLIANT! - Well Done
At the rate the Chi Coms hack us I doubt we have many secrets from them.
Clinton did it.
What difference does it make ?
“Free trade” and our lax immigration policies have given the ChiComs everything they wanted - and more.
This is why I believe he’s a traitor and not a hero. He fled to a communist country.
Just a few years ago we were ready to nail a Chinese national for stealing secrets from Los Alamos National Laboratory where he worked.
He turned out to be innocent (as far as we know) but the fact that a foreign national worked there is more than a little problematic.
Notice that Leaky Leahy got a pass for telling an enemy something they didn’t already know.
Ted Kennedy also got a pass for passing secrets to the Soviets in the 80s.
Feel free to share.
yeah, right. Like he has anything they don’t already have.
I am sure they and every other nation that is blackmailing the big eared little sissy boy already has that evidence.
What secrets? I thought he lied about spying on us.
I doubt that he has anything that “officials” haven’t already given to the Chinese for those “officials’” politicians’ favored constituents.
