China Telecom Wants To Take Over U.S. Secure Communications!

Chinese Telecom giant eyed as security threat

The free market is what America is all about - UNTIL it threatens the air we breathe, water we drink, other sentient life forms on the planet, American jobs, and most important ... Our National Security! It all boils down a basic American principle... You are free to do what you want until it infringes on your neighbors - or the nation!

October 5, 2012 Huawei, a global Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer
already doing limited business in the U.S., poses a threat to national
and corporate security say members of the U.S. House Permanent Select
Committee on Intelligence. Those congressmen speak to Steve Kroft for a
60 Minutes investigation to be broadcast Sunday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. ET
and 7:00 p.m. PT.
The world's largest maker of
telecommunications equipment has been under investigation for the past
year by the committee, which will issue its report on the Chinese
company on Monday. The committee's chair, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.),
tells Kroft, "If I were an American company today...and you are looking
at Huawei, I would find another vendor if you care about your
intellectual property, if you care about your consumers' privacy, and
you care about the national security of the United States of America."
Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) adds, "One of the main reasons we are
having this investigation is to educate the citizens in
the telecommunications world."
The committee believes
allowing Huawei to build and maintain large swaths of America's
telecommunications infrastructure opens a door for the Chinese
government to spy on the U.S. government and engage in industrial
Says Jim Lewis, a former U.S. government
foreign technology analyst, "It's a strategic industry in the sense that
an opponent can gain serious advantage...from being able to exploit the
telecommunications network." Asked by Kroft if Huawei were to be
approached by the Chinese government and asked to spy on the U.S., could
they refuse, Lewis replies, "It would be very difficult for them. The
state tells them what to do and they do it."
Huawei is
doing business in Kansas currently, among a few other small, rural
markets. In Dodge City, it's providing fast wireless Internet
communications. The president of United Wireless, Craig Mock, tells
Kroft he did business with Huawei because he didn't know of any other
American company that made the equipment he needed. Mock was visited by
federal agents after signing his deal with Huawei.
U.S. invented and developed the telecommunications industry, but is
largely out of the business now. The only U.S. supplier that competes
with Huawei is Cisco, and they don't make every component necessary for
today's 4G networks. There have been charges of industrial espionage
against it that Huawei has settled with Cisco and Motorola. Lewis, now a
fellow at the Center for Strategic & International Studies, says
the company grew to its enormous size with massive financial help from
the Chinese government.

Call or Write your congressman and ask him/her to oppose any attempt by Huawei to gain a foot hold in our internal telecommunications industry here in the U.S.

This is not good and it threatens out National Security as well as out personal privacy! Communist China actively spies on our military, what is to keep them from intercepting our data once their network is in place in the USA? YES, write your Congressman and Senator!
