China wants to make sure that we pay back all the money they put into U.S.
T-bills and home mortgages. ;-)

China and Russia are spying on the United States nearly as much as they did
during the Cold War, according to the top U.S. intelligence official.

Mike McConnell, the director of national intelligence, says in testimony
prepared for a Tuesday congressional hearing that a law passed last month
expanding the U.S. government's eavesdropping power is needed to protect not
just against terrorists but also against more traditional potential
adversaries, such as those two Cold War foes.

"China and Russia's foreign intelligence services are among the most
aggressive in collecting against sensitive and protected U.S. systems,
facilities and development projects, and their efforts are approaching Cold
War levels," McConnell says in his testimony. "Foreign intelligence
information concerning the plans, activities and intentions of foreign
powers and their agents is critical to protect the nation and preserve our
security."

The new law will also enable the intelligence agencies to identify "sleeper
cells" of terrorists in the United States, according to McConnell's
statement to the House Judiciary Committee.
