Chinese government hackers have compromised the computers of a Navy contractor, stealing massive amounts of highly sensitive data related to undersea warfare -- including secret plans to develop a supersonic anti-ship missile for use on U.S. submarines by 2020, according to American officials. The breaches occurred in January and February, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. The hackers targeted a contractor who works for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, a military organization headquartered in Newport, R.I., that conducts research and development for submarines and underwater weaponry.

If they have one, they have several.

This also explains how the Chinese submarines were able to emerge inside of naval war games, essentially surrounding command vessels at whim.

This didn't alarm people when it happened during BushCo and Obama, and it's probable that members of our military command are not functioning for our national interests.

Quickly, distraction with crap about Space Force!

Why is this a bad thing.
The sooner the Chinese government takes over the US the better. Look at what they did for China compared to the crap show happening in the US.
Time to outsource.
