162 Scientists from Top US Nuke Lab Worked for China
I reported the other day on how the governments of both China and Russia just warned the US that it was heading toward nuclear war. Meanwhile, The Epoch Times reported this week that over 160 scientists who worked at a top US national security laboratory, the lab where nuclear weapons were first developed, were hired by the genocidal Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to do research. Just as a US government agency, NIH, helped fund the Wuhan lab program that almost certainly manufactured Covid-19, it turns out the CCP is using American research to increase their own military strength—including, perhaps, nuclear capabilities.
The CCP is the greatest mass murderer of all time, still committing genocide, and it told its people it was entering a war phase with the US back in 2019. That war phase appears to include using our own science and technology against us.
“[Epoch Times, Sept. 22] More than 150 scientists who worked in a top U.S. national security laboratory were hired by the Chinese regime to do research, according to a new report. Much of that research has directly advanced Chinese military technology, which now threatens U.S. national security.
The report (pdf), published by strategic intelligence firm Strider Technologies, claims that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) conducted a systemic effort to recruit leading scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to work on its military programs.
Located in New Mexico, LANL is a key part of U.S. defense and security research and is where nuclear weapons were first developed. It is one of the largest scientific and technological institutions in the world, and its scientists conduct research in the fields of national security, space exploration, nuclear fusion, nanotechnology, and supercomputing.
At least 162 LANL researchers have been hired by the CCP over the last 35 years, according to the report. Of those, many went on to conduct military research for China, at least one of which previously held Top Secret security clearance at the U.S. Department of Energy.
‘Former Los Alamos scientists have made, and continue to make, considerable contributions to [China’s] hypersonic, missile, and submarine programs that present an array of security risks for the United States and the entire free world,’ the report said.
‘Better protection is needed for the institutions, research programs, and scientists advancing innovation in this era of strategic competition without harming open scientific collaboration.’
A ‘Talent Superpower Strategy’
According to the report, the CCP leveraged a ‘Talent Superpower Strategy’ wherein it incentivized academics, researchers, and scientists to go abroad, deepen their expertise, and return to China to advance the nation’s strategic interests.
Many of the researchers who came to the United States to be trained and work in areas critical to national security were involved in the CCP’s talent programs. At least 59 of those who worked at the LANL and subsequently returned to China to do research were part of the regime’s Thousand Talents Program or its youth branch.”
According to The National Pulse, “anyone who signs up for the Thousand Talents Program must turn over all their research and intellectual property to the Chinese government.” Nothing concerning there, right?
The CCP wants to destroy America, but unfortunately American institutions are all too happy to help.
