  • U.S. Naval Flight Officer Lt. Cmdr.Accused of Giving U.S. Secrets to Chin

    Hi

    Hoping its not true, but:-

    A U.S. naval flight officer with an extensive signals intelligence background was accused by the service of passing secrets to China, USNI News has learned.

    Lt. Cmdr. Edward C. Lin, who served on some of the Navy’s most sensitive intelligence gathering aircraft, faces several counts of espionage and other charges outlined during a Friday Article 32 hearing in Norfolk, Va.

    Lin, originally a Taiwanese national before his family moved to the U.S., had a career as a signals intelligence specialist on the Navy’s Lockheed Martin EP-3E Aries II reconnaissance aircraft, several sources confirmed to USNI News.

    Several sources familiar with the case told USNI News the country to which Lin passed secrets was China, however, few other details are known about the case given much of the evidence is classified.

    The redacted charging documents say Lin allegedly transported secret information out of the country without permission and then lied about his whereabouts when he returned to duty. The charging documents allege he successfully committed espionage twice and attempted espionage on three other occasions.

      Me too, but isn't that what the death sentence for treason is for?

      OTH, we put him on a carrier, attach one leg to the flight deck, the other leg to the catapult cradle and send him on his merry way.

        I find it quite believable; look at Jonathan Pollard, in his case being Jewish trumped being American so it was okay to spy for Israel. This piece of is no different.

          As long as he suffers while he's dying, I don't care how it happens!
