Indian American charged with selling B-2 secrets to China
Honolulu, November 10, 2006
An India-born engineer in Maui, Hawaii, who worked on the B-2 stealth bomber has been charged with selling
military secrets to help China build a stealth cruise missile.

Government attorneys claimed Noshir Gowadia, 62, a naturalised American citizen from India, conspired to sell
stealth secrets to China.

A federal grand jury has upgraded a former indictment against Gowadia, originally charged with selling
information involving the B-2 aircraft. He now additionally faces charges of assisting China with designing
and testing an exhaust system nozzle that protects a cruise missile from detection, according

China 'pushed diplomat to reveal secrets',Suicide notes supportclaimof honey trap
A Japanese diplomat posted in Shanghai whocommittedsuicide in May 2004 was pressured to divulge secrets to Chineseintelligenceofficers, according to suicide notes obtained by The YomiuriShimbun onThursday.
According to the suicide notes, the 46-year-old official was pressed torevealthe backgrounds of Japanese Consulate General officials in Shanghai andthenames of their local contacts.
The notes detail the elaborate and persistent tactics adopted by theChineseauthorities. Along with the notes, the Japanese government also has initspossession a document written in Chinese that is believed to have been usedbyChinese authorities to put pressure on the diplomat.
The suicide notes and the document apparently contradict Beijing's claim thatithad nothing to do with the diplomat's suicide and support Japanese claimsthatChina violated the Vienna Convention.
The diplomat was in charge of communications between the consulate andtheForeign Ministry in Tokyo. He reportedly left five suicide notes to theconsulgeneral in Shanghai, his family and colleagues. All the notes had beentyped ona personal computer.
In a five-page letter to the consul general, the diplomat itemizedthebackground of the incidents leading up to his suicide, from the moment hewasapproached by a Chinese man until his decision to kill himself. The end ofthenote is signed and dated May 5, 2004.
According to the note, in June 2003, Chinese intelligence officers detainedawoman working at a karaoke bar with whom the diplomat was having arelationshipon suspicion of prostitution. The woman was released without chargeand thenpersuaded to act as a liaison with the diplomat.
Fearing his relationship with the woman would be revealed, the diplomat metwithChinese authorities--a man who identified himself as a captain of apublicsafety squad and a female interpreter--from December of that year.

Initially, the conversations did not include sensitive topics, butthischanged when a document written in Chinese was mailed to thediplomat'sresidence on Feb. 20, 2004.
The document was from a man claiming to be an official of the ChineseStateSecurity Ministry, which monitors espionage activities by foreignagents.
The person asked for a meeting with one of three officials at theShanghaiconsulate--the diplomat, the consul general or the chief consul. Thedocumentincluded a cell phone number and instructed the diplomat to call thenumberusing a pay phone between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. each Friday or Sunday.
The diplomat contacted the captain of the public safety squad to discuss whattodo. About two weeks later, the diplomat was told, "The perpetrator [oftheletter] has been arrested," meaning that the problem was solved.
The diplomat wrote in his suicide note that he realized at that time thewholesituation had been created by the captain to set him up.
After the incident, the captain's attitude toward the diplomat changed. OnMay2, shortly after the diplomat's transfer to Sakhalin island was decided,thecaptain questioned him and said, "Why didn't you tell me?"

Showing the diplomat a list of all the staff at the consulate, thecaptainpressed him to reveal each staff member's career background. He thenthreatenedthe diplomat for information, saying: "You're a telecommunicationsofficer. Iknow all the reports are sent through you. Give me the names ofChinese peopleconsulate officials have met."
In the end, the man told him: "What will you bring next time you see me?Theseare things we're interested in. You know what they are."
After about three hours of intimidation, the diplomat gave in and agreedtocooperate. The two agreed to meet again on May 6 at 7 p.m.
After the meeting, the diplomat realized he would be asked about theconsulate'scryptographic system for sending coded messages. On May 5, the daybefore themeeting, the diplomat wrote his suicide notes. He killed himself themorning ofthe following day at a consulate building.
In the notes, the diplomat wrote, "When I think about the suffering Iwillexperience as a result of selling my country to the Chinese, I realize Ionlyhave this option."
"Unless I sell Japan out, it's unlikely I will be able to leave here. So Ihavechosen this path," he added.
Article 40 of the Vienna Convention requires receiving countries to takeallnecessary measures to ensure diplomats' freedom and physical protection.

The unusually forceful comments came at a time of renewed sparringbetweenTokyoand Beijing. This time, the conflict is over the suicide of aJapanesediplomatin Shanghai in May 2004.

Japan says the diplomat killed himself after he was blackmailedbyChinesesecurity agents over a liaison with a prostitute. China has calledtheclaims"vile" and groundless.

The Global Times, a newspaper owned by the People's Daily, said Tuesdaythatthenew quarrel had "cast a shadow over any improvement andprogressinChinese-Japanese relations this year."

"The fundamental conflict between China and Japan now is that Chinaisrising,and Japan does not want to see China rise," writes Lin Zhibo, adeputydirectorof the commentary department of the People's Daily. "Thisconflict islong-termand cannot be altered by the will of the Chinesepeople."

Lin's comments appeared in a new Chinese journal, China and WorldAffairs,issuedby Beijing's Tsinghua University in late 2005. The journal isdirectedat China'spolicy-making elite, but the extent to which Lin's remarksreflectedthinkingamong policy planners was unclear.

Lin says the conflict between China and Japan is set to deepen.Thetwocountries' economies are increasingly competing for export marketsandenergysupplies, and past Chinese attempts to foster friendship havefailed,hewrites.

"Our one-sided efforts for friendship have been totally useless," writesLin,awell-known proponent of hawkish policies toward Japan.

Other Chinese commentators warned of dangers from growingpopularnationalismlargely directed against Japan. But Lin says friction withJapan maybenefitChina. "Nationalism may be the only belief that can maintainChina'sunity andstability in a time of tumultuous change," Lin writes.

FBIArrestsFour for Allegedly Stealing Secrets forChina
The four "intelligence agents" were arrested in Los Angeles and arechargedwithtrying to steal technology that allows U.S. submarines tomovesilentlyunderwater.
The FBI says one suspect was trying to obtain secrets aboutspysatellites,torpedoes, and aircraft carrier electronics.
According to the FBI, the Chinese are using not only intelligenceagentsasspies, but also students, researchers, and businessmen.
"We've seen targeting by the Chinese throughout the United States,"saidTimothyBereznay, deputy assistant director of theFBI'sCounterintelligenceDivision.
"We've had cases in Palo Alto, California; Wisconsin; Trenton, NewJersey.It'spervasive, it's redundant."
There is more evidence that China is trying to steal otherU.S.militarysecrets.
Just ten days ago, a former aerospace engineer who helped develop theB-2StealthBomber was charged as a spy.
"B-2 gives the United States a long-range stealth precisionstrikecapabilitythat no other country even approaches,"
said John Pike, a Global Security.org defense analyst.
But there is growing concern some of the stealth technology, which allowstheB-2to fly virtually undetected, has been stolen.
Government sources tell ABC News that Noshir Gowadia, who helped designtheB-2,sold secrets about the bomber for hundreds of thousands of dollarstoeightnations, including China.
The secrets allegedly sold involve technology which allows the bombertoavoidheat-seeking missiles.
"With China getting this technology," Pike said, "they can do twothings.Theycan copy it for their own planes possibly.
They could also counter it, getting heat-seeking missiles that can shootdownthestealth bomber."

3,500 Chinese spy companies identified in Canada and U.S.

The man looks and actslikeanyother Korean corner store owner - a hardworking newcomertoCanada.

You cannot tell byhissimpleappearance that he owns the building the store is in and that hehasjustbought a million dollar mansion in the posh BeaconsvilleareaofMontreal.

You also cannot tell that heisoneof North Korea's foremost spies in Eastern Canada who actually ownsalargecomputer business in Mapo, South Korea, that employshundredsofpeople.

In the highrise glasstowersofVancouver - Tricell (Canada) Inc. and Top Glory EnterprisesLtd.,bothincorporated in the late '80s work for the CommunistgovernmentofChina.

Among their jobs wastohelpfacilitate the covert entry of secret police into Vancouver byhoodwinkingtheCanadian government. The agents were hunting for highprofilefugitivebusinessman, Lai Changxing, who himself was recruited by theChinesemilitaryto spy on Taiwan.


The visitor visas fromthebogusbusiness delegation was endorsed by Chinas Ministry of TradeandEconomicCo-operation (MOFTEC) - one of the most powerful ministries intheChinesegovernment, responsible for such vital areas as negotiatingChina'sentry intothe World Trade Organization.

From the windows ofboththesefirms, which constantly invite "Chinese business delegations"toCanada,company officials can see the arrival and departure of shipsbelongingto themaritime behemoth - COSCO.

The shipping lineisintimatelylinked to the China International Trust and Investment Corp., akeyfundraiserfor the Chinese government and a technology-acquiring sourceforChinasmilitary.

Its vessels havebeencaughtcarrying thousands of weapons into California andChinesemissile-technologyand biological-warfare components into North Korea,Pakistan,Iraq and Iran,according to U.S. intelligence reports.

Insisting there is noevidencetoshow COSCO is involved in any illegal activity - the VancouverPortAuthorityhas a "gateway to North America" deal with theshippinggiant.

WhenCanada'sNortelTelecommunications based in Brampton, Ontario wanted to dobusiness inChina,they hired Katrina Leung's company - Merry GloryLtd.

Little did theyknowthat49-year-old corporate matchmaker would be in the limelight severalyearslateraccused of having have slept her way into the good graces of twoFBIagentswhile stealing secrets for the Chinese government.


Leung, who was paid $1.2millionin 1995 and 1996 for negotiating the Nortel-China deal, hasstrongconnectionsto Canada's Chinese business associations.

Around the same time,themodernday Matahari was greasing the way for Nortel, the Canadian spy agency-CSIS -was conducting an investigation in the offices of Ontario Hydroregardingthetheft of information in the nuclear technology field by "anindividualofChinese origin".

According to asecretintelligencereport obtained by The Asian Pacific Post, the individualsentunauthorizedfaxes, some containing hours worth of data, to a telephonenumberin the officesof the State Science and Technology CommissionofChina.

The report said that thereweretwoother cases where Canadian companies have alleged that their employeeshadbeenselling industrial secrets to China.

Like other ambitious youngmenwhobased their businesses in Hong Kong, James Ting was a citizen of theworld,anentrepreneur who constructed a universe of interrelated companiesandfinancesfrom Toronto to Tokyo to New York.

Ting was a darlingoftheChinese-Canadian trade lobby. Even the Prime Minister's OfficewebsitelistsTing's Semi-Tech, once ranked as the nations 10th largest employer,as amemberof Team Canada's business deals with China.

On the flip side, spywatcherswerewarning Ottawa without much success, that Ting was China'sfrontman toacquirehigh and medium technology and engage in economicandindustrialespionage.

Among thecompaniesSemi-Techshowed as part of its organization were several Chinesestate-ownedcompanies,related to military and intelligence activities obviouslyusing whatseemed tobe a Canadian consumer based company as cover.

Two months ago, afteravoidingaglobal manhunt while hiding in China, Ting surrendered to HongKongauthoritieswhere he is accused of serious financial crimes.

The mega-dealmaker,whostrippeddown companies in the west and to take their technology back totheeast, lefta trail of nearly $2 billion in debts and thousandswithoutjobs.

The cases listed are butasmallillustration of what the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) saidthisweekwas the greatest espionage threat to North America in the next 10 yearsto15years.

FBI Director RobertMuellertoldthe United States Congress that China has more than 3,000 "front"companiesinAmerica whose real purpose is to direct espionage efforts. Someofthethousands of Chinese visitors, students and business people who gototheUnited States each year also have a government intelligence tasktoperform,authorities say.

"Left unchecked, suchasituationcould greatly undermine U.S. national security and U.S. militaryandeconomicadvantage," Mueller told Congress.


"They figured out thatwhattheywant is throughout the United States, not just embassies, notjustconsulates,"David Szady, FBI assistant director for counterintelligence,saidin apublished interview. "Its a major effort."


To meet this challenge, theFBIhastransferred 167 agents into counterintelligence and set upananti-espionageoperation for the first time in all 56 field offices. Eachisputting together acomprehensive survey of the potential espionage targetsintheir domain to givethe FBI its first broad national picture.

Preventive effortsincludeFBImeetings with corporate executives, university officials and otherstogaugevulnerabilities. It also means undercover work at conferences thatdrawforeignscientists and development of intelligence "assets" who describe foranFBIagent what the foreign government wants.

The FBI has madefightingespionagethe No. 2 priority behind stopping terrorism, with thesamephilosophy oftracking and stopping spies rather than waiting toprosecutethem.

Training has beenstrengthened,thecareer track resurrected and a cadre of intelligence analystsisbeingbuilt.

In Canada,intelligencereportsindicate the number of Chinese front companies to be between300and500.

But unlike theAmericans,Chinaexperts say the political climate in Ottawa is not conducive tocrackingdownon this significant threat.

"Virtually all therecentprimeministers and Paul Martin who is likely to be the next havestrongconnectionsto China on the personal, business and political fronts," saidanintelligenceanalyst specialising in East Asian affairs.

"They find itdifficulttounderstand this threat some just deny it," he said.

For former Canadianforeignserviceofficer Brian McAdam, this week's FBI warning reads like apassage outof areport he worked on for the Canadian spy agency.

McAdam workedon"ProjectSidewinder" which was conducted by the Canadian SecurityIntelligenceServiceand aided by the RCMP between 1994 and 1996.

The conclusions wereneverpubliclyreleased, until leaked to the media amidst allegations that"politicalinfluencenixed the project."

That study mirrors thisweek'sFBIassertions that China posed the most significant threattoCanada.

Sidewinder, analysts state,didnotpresent theories but indicators of a multifaceted threat tonationalsecurity.The report was generally ignored by the politicians. It wasahead ofitstime.

Among those whoseconnectionswereinvestigated were Macao casino king Stanley Ho, who hasextensiveinterests inCanada, and Li Ka-shing, one of the world's wealthiestmen, knownin Vancouverfor his purchase of the Expo lands and companies linkedto tycoonslike RobertKuok, Cheng Yu Tung and Henry Fok.

Sidewinder among otherthingssaidmany of the companies identified by the analysts have contributed"severaltensof thousands of dollars to the two traditional political parties,theLiberalsand the Conservatives."

A major financialandbrokeragehouse gave the Liberal party C$20,432.94 in 1994, a largepetroleumcompanyowned by a Beijing-friendly tycoon gave more than C$100,000 tothe sametwoparties and political donations were also made by a triad-runChinesefilmstudio.

At the time of thestudy,analystssaid at least 200 Canadian companies are under the direct orindirectcontrol ofChina.

The central point oftheChinesestrategy is first to buy a Canadian company to obtaina"localidentity".

Then, using thisacquisition,theChinese-Canadian company invests heavily under theCanadianbanner.

But control lies in HongKongorBeijing and the financial benefits or fruits of research, often paidforbyOttawa or the provinces, are likely to make their way to Asia.

OneChina-controlledmultinationalwith assets of more than US$23 billion, had spentmore than $500million buyingcompanies in the forest sector in B.C.,petrochemical firms inAlberta and realestate in central Canada.

It said that Triad orChinesemafiamembers are behind an international seafood processing companythat hasofficesin Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Mississauga. The companyisbelieved to be afront for importing heroin. In addition, company managershavemaintained regularcontacts with Chinese army officials and paid for visitsofChinesedelegations.

Sidewinder warned thattheChinesegovernment was taking advantage of growing business ties betweenChinaandCanada to provide cover for intelligence services.

One example cited saidacompanyowned by a Chinese-Canadian national sponsored what was ostensiblyaChinesebusiness delegation to Canada. In reality, the delegation wascomprisedofMinistry of State Security officials travelling to Canada toconductanintelligence operation.

Anothersimilardelegationcomprised officers from a sensitive sector of the People'sLiberationArmy, whowere attempting to make arrangements to purchasesecurecommunicationstechnology for military purposes.

The Canadian spy agencywhichwasat loggerheads with the RCMP over certain characterizations in thereportsaidthe Sidewinder study done by McAdam and others was revisedandcertaindocuments destroyed because they were based onunprovableconspiracytheories.

The spy agency laterissuedawatered-down version of the Sidewinder study to aselectgovernmentgroup.

The SecurityIntelligenceReviewCommittee, the civilian watchdog of Canada's spy agency, hasonce againbeenasked to review the handling of Sidewinder by CSIS.

"What is critical hereistocompare the FBI study with Sidewinder. What is being released toCongressiswhat we warned the Canadian government about in the mid-nineties,"McAdamtoldThe Asian Pacific Post.

"The stuff aboutinfluenceinuniversities, etc., was in Sidewinder... They did not want to listentousthen... maybe they will listen now."

Meanwhile, a report outofOttawathis week said that Prime Minister Jean Chretien is planning a triptoChina aspart of an international farewell tour.

"Taxpayers are footing thebillona trip that is going to do Canadians very little good. Do you thinkthere'sonebeef farmer in Canada, whether it's Ontario or Western Canada thatwantshim togo to China - unless he's trying to sell them beef. Why can't he gositdownwith the leader in Japan? That is the most important issue rightnow,"saidCanadian Alliance House leader John Reynolds, referring to theongoingcrisiscaused by the mad-cow disease.

Reynolds said if Chretienwantstowrap up his time in office conducting an international farewell tourto"saygoodbye to his friends," thats fine, but he should ask PaulMartin,hisanticipated successor, to fill in for him while he isaway.

Chretien is to attendtheannualAsia-Pacific Economic Co-operation meeting in Bangkok Oct. 17-21 aswellas theannual Commonwealth meeting in Nigeria in December.

But sources say heisseriouslyconsidering tacking on a trip to China and another one to Indiaafterhis APECmeeting in Thailand.

The prime minister'sofficesaidChretien may go to Shanghai at the recent request of the Chinesepresidenttoattend the opening of two Candu reactors.

The reactors, whichemploy450Canadians, were sold to China by Atomic Energy of Canada LtdafterOttawachanged legislation to provide Beijing with over $1.9billioninloans.

The office alsoconfirmedthatChretien is also considering an invitation to meet withtheCanada-ChinaBusiness Council (CCBC) in Beijing.

Espionage: Sex, Spiesandthe‘Parlor Maid
April21issue

SET UP SIX YEARS ago in part toinvestigateanalleged Chinese plot to influence U.S. lawmakers, the task forcehassincedisbanded: it was never able to prove the Chinese governmentwasbehindmillions of dollars in suspect campaign contributions to formerpresidentBillClinton and members of Congress during the 1990s. But lastweek’s arrestofLos Angeles businesswoman Katrina Leung―an accused spy whosecode namewasParlor Maid―has prompted an intense FBI review to determineifshecompromised highly sensitive counterintelligence investigations,includingthecampaign-finance probe.
Leung, sources say, was the task force’s chief source on primetargetTedSioeng, a suspected Chinese “agent of influence” whosefamilyandbusinesses contributed $250,000 to the Democratic Party in 1996andanadditional $100,000 to a California GOP Senate candidate. Leung andSioeng(whosat next to Al Gore at his Buddhist-temple fund-raiser that yearinLosAngeles) were “close friends,” one source says.
Task-force prosecutors hoped to use Leung to lure Sioeng back intotheUnitedStates in the spring of 1997. But the ruse failed―apparentlybecauseSioenggot suspicious―and the case collapsed. Now FBI officials want toknowifLeung sabotaged the probe and was actually protecting Sioeng.
If so, it was only one of many embarrassments flowing from the Leungaffair.Sheis already being touted as the “Mata Hari” of Chinese espionage.Ahighlycompensated FBI “asset” (she was paid $1.7 million for servicesandexpensessince 1983), Leung stands accused of purloining classifieddocumentsfrom thebriefcase of her bureau “handler,” ex-L.A. agent J. J.Smith, withwhom shewas having a long-term affair, and turning them overtotheChinese.

Leung was simultaneously having sexualrelationswithanother FBI agent, William Cleveland, who resigned last week as atopsecurityofficial at Lawrence Livermore Lab-oratories. Sources tellnews-weekthat theFBI first suspected Leung in 1991, when she tipped off herChinesehandler(code-named Mao) to a sensitive FBI “security survey” ofU.S.diplomaticmissions in China. But Smith vouched for her, and the FBI keptLeungon thepayroll. “I’m absolutely astounded they kept her as asource,”saysex-agent I. C. Smith, who headed the 1991 survey. “This strikesme asamonumental management failure.” Lawyers for Smith and Leung saytheywillcontest the charges and argue that her real loyalties were totheUnitedStates, not China, making her in effect atripleagent.
