China Hacked Blueprints for U.S. Fighter Jets?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/04/30 02:15:28

Chinese hackers stole the blueprints for America's new Joint Strike Fighter
planes, the F-35 and F-22 — an example of cyberattacks that can "devastate our
nation," a leading congressman disclosed.

"I think it's important that the American people have a better idea of what
is at risk," Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland
Security Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations and Management, said at a
subcommittee hearing on Tuesday.

"When I look at the theft of intellectual property to the tune of $1
trillion, that's a serious economic issue for the United States.

"When I look at countries like China, who have stolen our Joint Strike
Fighters, F-35 and F-22s, stolen those blueprints so they can manufacture those
planes and then guard against those planes.

"Make no mistake, America is under attack by digital bombs. There are several
things the American public should understand about these attacks. They are real,
stealthy and persistent and can devastate our nation.

    Probably was by accident that they got it. New world order is a one world government and all technology will be shared, all military will be used to control the people. That is why our borders are not closed. They need to destroy patriotism. That's why our schools are not teaching history and American pride and have been teaching tolerance and acceptance. I hope others can see what is happening.

    Waaaaaaaaa... the wolf is crying wolf

    Look on the bright side. Maybe China will cripple its economy producing these things. Was it a hack, or was it an intentional 'leak'?

    btw... what is the latest cost estimate for the F-35? And how much more taxpayer money will be squandered on this boondoggle before it is finally axed?
