Es ist nicht ohne Ironie, daß offensichtlich diejenige Nation mit
den größten Ambitionen in puncto Überwachung zum Opfer jahrzehntelanger
Industriespionage geworden ist --- der Hughes-Fall hat sich als
Spitze eines Eisbergs entpuppt. Lächerlich in diesem Licht die
immer noch andauernden Bemühungen, starke Kryptographie zu behindern.

Bipartisan Report Finds Theft of Nuclear Technology That Hurt National
By Jeff Gerth and Eric Schmitt
WASHINGTON -- A select House committee, in a classified report unusual
for its bipartisanship, has found that over the last 20 years China
obtained, sometimes through theft, some of the most sensitive of
American military technology, including nuclear weapons design,
Government officials and witnesses before the panel say.
The committee's final report, unanimously approved by its five
Republican and four Democratic members Wednesday, found that during
Republican and Democratic Administrations alike, China acquired a
range of technical secrets far beyond the satellite- and
missile-related technology whose transfer by American satellite
companies during the Clinton Administration prompted the start of the
panel's inquiry in May.
In a carefully worded statement after the report had been approved,
the committee's chairman, Representative Christopher Cox, Republican
of California, said that China's acquisition of American technology
had harmed national security and that its "acquisition efforts over
the past two decades" had been a "serious, sustained" activity.
The panel's 700-page report is secret because so much of its six-month
inquiry dealt with classified information, and it released no details
from that report Wednesday.
It promised to begin a process, in consultation with the Clinton
Administration, to declassify as many of the findings as possible.
