U.S ´surprise´ at China military buildup... Analysts missed Chinese buildup
Analysts missed Chinese buildup


By Bill Gertz
THE WASHINGTON TIMES

A highly classified intelligence report produced for the new director of national intelligence concludes that U.S. spy agencies failed to recognize several key military developments in China in the past decade, The Washington Times has learned.
The report was created by several current and former intelligence officials and concludes that U.S. agencies missed more than a dozen Chinese military developments, according to officials familiar with the report.
The report blames excessive secrecy on China´s part for the failures, but critics say intelligence specialists are to blame for playing down or dismissing evidence of growing Chinese military capabilities.
The report comes as the Bush administration appears to have become more critical of China´s military buildup.
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said in Singapore over the weekend that China has hidden its defense spending and is expanding its missile forces despite facing no threats. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice also expressed worries this week about China´s expanding military capabilities.
Among the failures highlighted in the study are:
•China´s development of a new long-range cruise missile.
•The deployment of a new warship equipped with a stolen Chinese version of the U.S. Aegis battle management technology.
•Deployment of a new attack submarine known as the Yuan class that was missed by U.S. intelligence until photos of the submarine appeared on the Internet.
•Development of precision-guided munitions, including new air-to-ground missiles and new, more accurate warheads.
•China´s development of surface-to-surface missiles for targeting U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups.
•The importation of advanced weaponry, including Russian submarines, warships and fighter-bombers.

Thats a farce!
I read many things about China building and buying weapon systems as far back as 17 years ago. By the way, paid for by US consumers of cheap chinese goods!I knew it 17 years ago, so how come the US govt. did not.......

Oh and if the US govt. was so worried about it, then why allow Chinese communist front companys to buy IMB´s PC devision. Has the Bush administration and the Republicans forgotten about dual use technology?

They harped many times on it when Clinton was in office!
