Spy-Happy Obama Admin Justice Department Files Charges Against Chinese Hackers

Spy-Happy Obama Admin Justice Department Files Charges Against Chinese HackersSo, lets get this straight.

On one hand, the Obama administration is spying on everyone under the sun, including every American, and all Heads of State of other countries, and thinks they are perfectly within their rights to do so.

Then on the other hand, Eric Holder goes nuts though if someone in China steals trade secrets that costs business some money.

Looks like after all of Obama’s illegal spying, Obama’s chickens are now coming home to roost, but it’s the American People who are losing.

Eric Holder and the corrupt Obama administration will allow anyone to break our nation’s laws and enter the country illegally with no fear of deportation, much less punishment of any kind. In fact, the Obama administration gathered up the worst of the worst illegal alien criminals and released them all from prison, for no reason other than a messed-up political move designed to embolden their base in the coming up elections.

On the brighter side, at least we know Eric Holder is doing SOMETHING to help Americans – selectively, but it’s a start.

The Justice Department filed criminal charges against five hackers in the Chinese military Monday, accusing them of stealing American trade secrets through cyber espionage, according to U.S. officials familiar with the case.

The efforts were directed at six American victim companies in the nuclear power, metals and solar products industries. Among the victims were Westinghouse Electric, U.S. subsidiaries of SolarWorld AG, U.S. Steel, Allegheny Technologies and Alcoa.

“This is a case alleging economic espionage by members of the Chinese military and represent the first-ever charges against a state actor for this type of hacking,” Attorney General Eric Holder said. More details of the charges are to be announced Holder in a morning news conference.

FBI Director James Comey told NBC News, “For too long, the Chinese Government has blatantly sought to use cyber-espionage to obtain economic advantage for its state-owned industries.”

The charges will name several individuals who are Chinese government employees, according to a U.S. official. “They used military and intelligence facilities to commit cyber espionage against U.S. companies,” the official said.

The names of the targeted companies could not immediately be determined, but they were said to be in the energy and manufacturing sectors.

The Obama administration has long considered China the most aggressive nation in obtaining industrial secrets through spying.

“Chinese actors are the world’s most active and persistent perpetrators of economic espionage,” said the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, a U.S. government agency, in a 2011 report.

A year ago, several U.S. newspapers, including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, said hackers traced to China attacked their newsroom computer systems.

A spokesman for China’s foreign ministry called any suggestion that the Chinese were involved in those intrusions “irresponsible,” though U.S. security experts said China targeted news organizations in the U.S. and overseas to try to identify the sources of news leaks within the Chinese government.

Those disclosures prompted a computer security expert and former Justice Department lawyer, Marc Zwillinger to say, “the only computers these days that are safe from Chinese government hackers are computers that are turned off, unplugged, and thrown in the back seat of your car.”
