Understanding China, One Blog at a Time

An American in China

Chinese, We Educate Them, Give them Jobs and then They Sell Our Secrets to China

Unfortunately this is a common theme with the Chinese. They are crazy nationalistic and have been brainwashed that everyone is out to get China, so they will go to any lengths to protect the ‘motherland’. To those of us in the US this does not compute, we have not deep ingrained neurosis that the world is out ot get us, but the Chinese are taught this and it has sunk in. Thus, when they come to our country, for many of them, the thought of protecting the motherland runs deep. Thus, we have situations like the following where we make this Chinese lady a Citizen, give her a good job and better life than she had in China and she tries to escape with a one way ticket and 600million U$ in corporate secrets.

The Chinese will not change so we either get smart or get fooled…

from here:

“(WLS) — A Chinese spy was caught “red-handed,” according to federal authorities, as she was about to board a plane at O’Hare bound for Beijing.Hanjuan Jin says she worked as a computer engineer for Schaumburg-based Motorola, a global leader in communications technology.

Federal agents say Jin was also working as a spy for a Chinese company, and she has been charged in a corporate espionage case that reflects a growing national security problem.

Jin, a Chinese-born American citizen and graduate of the Illinois Institute of Technology, had been working at Motorola headquarters in Schaumburg since 1998. She was a software engineer, living in a comfortable townhouse not far from her job. Two years ago, according to a federal indictment handed up in April, Jin went on medical leave from Motorola.

Despite claiming to be deathly ill, investigators say, she traveled from Chicago to Beijing where she agreed to work for a Chinese tech company that allegedly recruited her to steal Motorola secrets.

“The federal government is saying basically that you’re a corporate spy. What about that?” the I-Team’s Chuck Goudie asked Jin.

“No, I’m not. I’m not. I’m not,” she responded.

“You’re not a spy?” Goudie asked.

“They made a mistake,” Jin said.

According to the indictment, a Chinese executive told Jin, “You should share in the fruit of our collective effort,” once she’d stolen top-secret Motorola files, schematics and military communication plans.

When Jin returned to Motorola from medical leave in February of 2007, authorities say, she did just that, downloading hundreds of confidential documents from the company’s supposedly secure internal network, including documents related to public safety organizations in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.Two days later, she arrived at O’Hare Airport with a one-way ticket to Beijing.

“What were you doing at O’Hare Airport with a one-way ticket to China?” Goudie asked.”

Note, she was later indicted, if an American did this in China, they would probably be killed. Also, Huawei, one of China’s largest is in the news for supposedly hiring about 5 Chinese from the USA , each of whom has company secrets.
