Shens When Was Hsu the Only One?
Charles Smith at Newsmax recalls the days before Norman Hsu; and at the long history of dealings between the Clintons and China.
In 1996, President Clinton moved the oversight of satellite exports from the State and Defense Departments to the Commerce Department. After Clinton’s decision to lift the ban in Loral’s case and to allow the exportation of the company’s technology to the Chinese military, Loral CEO Schwartz handed over an additional $300,000 to the DNC.
Yet, in 1994 President Clinton personally authorized Schwartz to meet with a key Chinese politico — Commissioner Shen Roujun. It is here the story gets real interesting.
The first and most damaging lie that the Clinton lawyers made was that the Chinese commissioner, Shen, was a civilian representative of the communist government. This claim, and the accompanying claim of personal and business privacy made on behalf of Loral and Bernard Schwartz, was made before Federal Judge Robert Payne.
The claim was part of an elaborate effort to deny access to over 1,000 pages of information dealing with Shen and his so-called civilian organization, the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND).
When the Clinton lawyers finished I, in turn, dropped a complete bio of Gen. Shen Roujun on Payne's desk. The dossier on Shen included his current military status and details about COSTIND, the military unit he was in.
As they say, read the whole thing.
