THE CAPITOL HILL PRAYER ALERT
Clinton Ignored Evidence Of
Pushed Tech Sales
March 10, 1999
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard
Shelby (R-AL) will launch hearings next week to investigate reports that
for three years the Clinton Administration withheld from Congress and the
American people information about a spy operation in which the Communist
Chinese have stolen critical U.S. nuclear secrets and thereby radically
advanced their nuclear war-making threat to the United States.
- The New York Times reported Saturday that
U.S. officials learned in 1995 that the Red Chinese had tested sophisticated
multi-warhead missiles built with technology stolen in the late 1980s from
the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. The intelligence officer
who discovered the evidence made extraordinary efforts to insure that the
information reached top security decision-makers.
- When the President was first briefed remains
unclear, but he was fully informed in 1997 not only that China had obtained
access to U.S. nuclear weapons designs but that several vital Chinese espionage
operations were still being conducted. Yet, on the eve of
his first U.S.-Chinese summit, the President essentially ignored the findings.
The Clinton administration was busy establishing a "strategic partnership"
with Beijing and clearing the way for U.S. companies to increase sales
of nuclear energy, guidance systems and other technology to the Communist
Chinese. Also, Congress was investigating illegal foreign campaign contributions
to the 1996 Clinton-Gore reelection campaign and to the Democratic National
Committee, the same matters Attorney General Janet Reno later refused to
appoint an independent counsel to investigate.
- Department of Energy (DOE) intelligence officer
Paul Trulock uncovered evidence of the theft in 1995. He and others struggled
with Clinton administration inaction, resistance, and cover-up for nearly
three years. It took The New York Times story and threat of a major
new scandal for Energy Secretary Bill Richardson to take commonsense action
and fire the leading suspect, a Taiwan-born scientist named Wen Ho Lee.
Lee seriously violated security regulations, yet there is not enough evidence
to convict him of espionage.
- Prior to July 1997, White House inaction could
be blamed upon gross negligence or incompetence. But not after July 1997,
when, after struggling for months to secure a meeting with Federico Pena
(the then-new Energy Secretary), Paul Trulock (who first discovered the
spy activity in 1995) presented Pena with new evidence proving that Chinese
espionage operations were still under way inside the weapons labs.
- The White House now admits that Red China soon
plans to deploy a greatly advanced nuclear force, which will include mobile
missiles, ballistic missiles with multiple warheads (for multiple targets),
and submarines with missiles armed with nuclear warheads. The Chinese missiles
will be able to reach targets anywhere in America.
- American-made supercomputers, personally approved
by President Clinton for sale to Red China in his first term, have fueled
Chinese military advances. Rep. Christopher Cox (R-CA), whose House committee
has documented illegal transfers of sophisticated equipment to China, is
calling for tighter controls on satellite, missile technology, and high-speed
computer sales to China and for improved security at U.S. nuclear laboratories.
Inflammatory Red Chinese rhetoric aimed at the
U.S. has been on the increase in recent months. Despite their pledges to
the contrary, flagrant Chinese human rights abuses have increased this year.
It would certainly appear that the Red Chinese are preparing for war with
the United States. Bill Clinton has finally agreed with Congressional Republicans
to take steps toward deploying an anti-ballistic missile system, but it
may be too late. Christians must now URGENTLY
REPENT before the Holy God of the Bible
and CRY OUT TO HIM FOR MERCYmercy for God's people in America, and for our countrymen
who do not know Jesus.
