[8/16 Update: Yet another FBI agent was nabbed as a Chinese double-agent - - how many these past few years, in the CIA, FBI, and probably still hidden within the DIA? So when the newsies claim the FBI is investigating something, they really mean the Chinese-controlled {China's Ministry of Public Security} FBI is investigating!]
[Read this along with The Commission, by Philip Shenon] There is some good to this book (Wise's explaining how the Chinese have so thoroughly penetrated the utterly hapless FBI) and that which is very bad (the discerning reader will note the blatant errors Wise falls for, so obviously being misled by his government sources - - Robert Mueller III INADVERTENTLY helping along the Chinese spying makes one really wonder)? Also, important to note what is left unsaid: Sibel Edmonds fingered Marc Grossman as one of the inner circle of nuclear technology thieves, and Grossman, a Bush inner circle guy, is later appointed to State by Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton! Also, Stephen Carbone, head of the Bush/Cheney created CIFA, Counter-Intelligence Field Activity, a huge counter-intel operation inside the Pentagon, worked at the same nuclear facility in New Mexico, Los Alamos, years before, and had contacts there. (Wise most definitively got wrong the dates of the CIFA's existence and some other important stuff.) There reader will be enlightened by Wise's mistakes, or purposeful misinformation. [Really, though, since they ship all the jobs, technology and investment to China, isn't this really all arbitrary?]

This is the real deal. I worked this stuff, I know these guys in the book, and the author has nailed it. I got out of Chinese FCI work as soon as I could and this book explains why.
