While the bombastic U.S.-China "trade war" has been getting the headlines, U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement agencies have been waging a quieter battle to combat Chinese theft of trade secrets from American companies a practice so widespread that even China trade boosters regard it as egregious.To combat Chinese spying and hacking, U.S. intelligence agencies are increasingly sharing with the Justice Department revelatory information about Chinese operations. Several indictments unsealed since September reveal how the State Security Ministry, the Chinese spy service, has operated through its regional bureaus in this case the Jiangsu provincial office of the MSS to obtain precious U.S. technology.The U.S. in September arrested a U.S. Army reservist named Ji Chaoqun and charged that he had helped the Chinese gain information about aerospace industry targets.That pledge followed an indictment the previous year that revealed an elaborate plot by Chinese military hackers to steal U.S. commercial secrets.The U.S. counterattack, in part, seems to be a public revelation of just how and why Beijing is stealing America's secrets overt payback for covert espionage.
