This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. This government is a massive threat to America. It's also a big reason why some who defected to Russia and gave away NSA secrets have done their nation a massive disservice. People lose their lives when you make mistakes or leak technical capabilities. https://nypost.com/2018/01/19/china-may-have-compromised-cia-communications-report/ U.S. intelligence officials remain concerned that China has compromised the methods that the CIA uses to communicate with overseas informants, dampening agents’ enthusiasm after the Monday arrest of a former CIA officer for allegedly retaining classified information, The Washington Post reported. Between 18 and 20 key CIA sources in China went dark from 2010 to 2012, in what US officials described as one of the worst intelligence failures in decades, according to the New York Times. Investigators are examining the possibility that China compromised the informants by intercepting their communications with CIA handlers, the Post reported. Among their considerations: Covert U.S. communications with informants have been intercepted by other countries with less sophisticated hacking capabilities than China, according to The New York Times. And investigators noted that the CIA has been sloppy in its communications with Chinese informants, including by allowing informants to know their handlers’ identities, the paper said.
