I mean, of course, The China US relationship is a focal point of this election in the United States and we see it firsthand out here where I am in Hong Kong. And you know, you have to decide whether is this, you know, provocation, military provocation, Or is it Maura? An example of what election era. Theater.

S military is that the Chinese military in these exercises in the South China Sea between Hainan Island and the Parasol Islands fired four medium range ballistic missiles, including. We're hearing a DF 21 D. That is a dolphin 21 D so called carrier killer missile that was fired from the mainland. Of China into the South China Sea provocative indeed. And separately.

TikTok sues Trump administration over ban
"Is waging a legal fight against the Trump administration's efforts to ban the popular Chinese own service over national security concerns. The Trump administration also denying that Mark Zuckerberg used a private meeting to bend the president's ear against Tic Tac, which of course, is owned by China's bite dancer. Might dance, insisting it's not a national security threat and that the government is acting without evidence or due process at China Hawk and trade advisor to President Trump Peter Navarro. What the president is doing is not really about Tic tac. It's about Tic tac, and we chat and all of these other Chinese software companies that are able to collect data on American citizens, ship it over the Chinese servers and then shared with the Communist Party and the People's Liberation Army. So I you know, I I'm always amazed how some of these stories Pop up, but that one for me has zero credibility because I know that he had nothing to do with anything that happened here in the White House. Can you give us some cholera on where the tic tac negotiation stand? We understand. By the way, the Tic Tac is going to be filing a lawsuit today against the U. S government, But I really want to understand whether you think it's a Microsoft or an Oracle or whether you think there's any other real bidders out there and how quickly this can come together. Given the timeline that the administration has put on this, I'm not and I'm not really deeply involved in the actual of sale negotiations. I can't say that I was, I think encouraging to have Oracle step in. I think I expressed some concerns. Previously with you guys on CNBC about Microsoft and its ties. To Communist China or Cole is one of the toughest smartest companies on the planet. And they've been absolutely meticulous about making sure that the Chinese Communist Party has zero influence over them, but But let's see, as president loves to say, Let's see how it pans out. But the bigger issue here really is protecting its candlelight. The joke I made about that Which is too serious. You know, It's like 8 30 in the morning.

China tries to undermine the United States with every chance they get, Let's just look at the recent headlines. The Chinese Consulate in San Francisco is harboring a Chinese military researcher wanted by the FBI, who was accused of visa fraud and who lied about her connection to the Chinese military. We recently discovered the photos of her and the Chinese People's Liberation Army. We also found out that they have been spying and committing espionage from within our own borders in the consulate in Houston, now set fire to documents and would not even let the Houston fire Department in Makes you wonder what they're hiding or even what they are burning.

Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings.

She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

What China wants with Equifax data
"That big Equifax data breach couple years back. Hackers got hold of the names birthdates and social security numbers of one hundred forty five five million of US federal prosecutors announced charges in that case today charges against four members of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. This is the latest. If by far the largest in a string of hacks that American officials have tied to Beijing. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more now on how China might use that trove of data. It's got in a press conference attorney. General William Bar described the equifax breach as more evidence of China's voracious appetite for Americans personal data including the theft of personnel records from the Office of personnel management the intrusion into Marriott hotels anthem health insurance companies and and now the wholesale theft of credit and other information from Equifax. Chinese officials have denied any connection to previous hacks but cybersecurity. I security experts say there are lots of reasons China might want that data priscilla more. Ut is a researcher with the security intelligence firm recorded future richer. She says sensitive financial information like debts could be used by Chinese spies to target potentially vulnerable Americans so building thank profiles of individuals that could be susceptible to recruitment by Chinese intelligence services. Georgetown Professor Ben Buchanan wrote a book about Cybersecurity. Called the hacker and the state he says the data could also help China identify Americans operating undercover in Beijing. But my guess is the biggest determining factor. Here Why the Chinese did this is they could and Why not take it and why not see what might be useful down the line Buchanan? You can and says it's exceptionally unlikely. Chinese hackers will see the inside of an American courtroom but the charges do send a message that the US government is trying trying to track and deter foreign hacking. I'm AMY SCOTT FOR

L. A. officers who targeted victims in the nuclear power metals and solar products industries for the economic benefit of Chinese companies indeed about eighty percent of our economic espionage prosecutions have implicated the Chinese government wow that is so that giant Equifax tack from whenever that was is the biggest one in that ever happened twenty seventeen I believe is when we learned about in one hundred and forty five million Americans most personal data grabbed half of all Americans was the freaking Chinese government yeah there's something right you know we were talking earlier today about there is now obviously a giant cover up of the giant death told by the coronavirus you have the story Mike Pompeii of the secretary state is urging U. S. government the governors to reserve there's a massive of a lobbying effort going on right now the Chinese government is targeting governors and working hard to have favorable views of China and be in favor of a pro China policies there's another story in the news today about Chinese infiltration into our university systems and intelligence officers and intellectual laughed I mean I think more and more were waking up to who they are and what they're up to I hope so and then you got to worry about how much money talks as we saw with the NBA I know what they are but we're gonna expand our legal make a billion dollars right Hey that somebody at the river Riley Newman writes all over the world what are we gonna single China is money to be made yelling says it's not cold who are we to argue with the al manning first primaries tomorrow night New Hampshire it's either going to be by noon I mean it's either gonna be Bernie or Pete win almost certainly I mean the polls would have to really be wrong for not to be one of those too and either one of them when they get to claim that they won the first two states and they'll be often run and both of them are surprising in their own ways little bear peak that that bite mad that they put out where it says Joe Biden dealt with the war in Afghanistan and health care and mayor Pete decided to put decorative bricks downtown my the pictures they have of mayor Pete in that ad make him look especially small and child like I don't know what they did for the graphics to make him lay he looks you know he looks eighteen anyway but he lost twelve in this advertise well he's a two term guy which I hadn't known until recently there in south bend Indiana and he's the former mayor now so when did you first start office I don't actually know that but I mean he's thirty eight now right so that they could easily been taken when he was twenty nine what he's almost forty that's true that's a good point he's almost forty but he looks twenty yeah that doesn't help the mini is is unfortunately looks younger than he actually is they'll be happy for that when he's older but not now yeah anyway that's gonna be a heck of a story will have plenty of time to talk about that on Wednesday when the results come out Harvey Weinstein's trial continues to grind on I'm getting more more worried that the guy's going to get off that's a poor choice in it he's going to he's going to avoid going to jail because he's a scumbag lifetime violent rapist as we all know not to mention a user of women an abuser of women in a it's just that is yeah I mean his sins go from really completely on coal right through unthinkable and all points in between headline in The Washington Post Harvey Weinstein accuser just commands dramatic testimony is a new kind of test in sex crime trials a former federal prosecutor who also handled sex crimes at the state level said the testimony from man last week makes a potential shipped in the type of cases the prosecutors are willing to pursue this could be a real arm change the way we we would we handle these over over the years over the centuries maybe years ago I would say her allegations would not even be brought forward a case like this it's testing the judge the court in the system the self I do believe it's pushing the envelope of how we do these trials specifically around the issue of you had consensual sex with them before or maybe after but you say at some point you're right by the person in the past this prosecutor says you just don't you don't even try it you don't even go forward you can't do it it's not gonna win if you if you were raped by this guy in then you sent an email saying I had a good time last night forget it forget your whole rape trial thing if you were not to do it and she says if this happens and no one seems prosecuted maybe we can go forward with that I think we've all learned now that that's fairly common it's impossible for most of us understand how this happens we just have to accept its true on abusive relationship in general there's you go away you come back again because this particular woman had many consensual sex experiences with Harvey before she was right and after we she was raped yeah and there's all kinds of emails you know saying I love you and you've done so much for me and stuff like that after she says she was raped right at is it is a journey gonna say the jury gonna say you know we know your damaged this happens it's fairly common we believe you were raped well beyond a reasonable doubt I had two tough for me as a juror I mean I haven't heard all of the prosecution right would be tough for me as a juror because she's she's a troubled person as we've been talking about for the last couple of weeks these these abusers choose trouble people on purpose right they're easier to Melissa manipulate but if I don't know Harvey Weinstein and these jurors supposedly don't know him or it light like his background that's the how they end up on the the jury I assume but like fighting off it's just a random guy and I hear the testimony this woman and she's she breaks down one day talking about her ex boyfriend she can't even finish the day and she sent an email saying I love you after she supposing is right I don't know that I can send this guy off to prison for twenty years right when there was nobody else in the room no it will directly NO one she's she's got some problem it's sickening it is sickening and it's it's pretty clear that Harvey Weinstein was so powerful and had so much money to throw around as maybe the biggest personal Hollywood for this woman mmhm man and one of her friends he pretended to do tryouts auditions for her and a friend for a movie they never going to be and it just went through the whole process he told somebody look have motivation all right attend it's real he he did the full he he he meets some somewhere you're beautiful you should be in my movies I got a super here will be coming at you be perfect for it has a more addition and they think they might be movie stars it's all completely phony while yeah and and he'd go through the whole thing and make the studio waste that much time and the hundreds of thousands of dollars may be in going through the whole process for weeks to pretend that they would think they're gonna be a big star so he could have sex with them wow and and somebody's gonna rape of anyway so I don't even know why go through this process but part of his the grooming says part of his recruiting in grooming process searching for likely victims right you know Tim center for a good friend to the lawyer tweeted over the weekend today's load of dangers of the stupid bowl ask comes to you courtesy of the Atlantic we're due process is just a perpetuation of harm and indeed the title of this article by one Megan Garber is the wind steam trial and the lives of due process which is essentially argues that because the nature of sex crimes having someone testify in court and then be cross examined is too much to ask it's too hard and it's unfair this is due process at work whether the process will really resulting justice is a notably different matter so I'm trying to follow the so you're saying that cross examining this woman would be is it skates Kroll it's nasty it's hard it makes it too hard to testify in sex crime trials in due process is a lie it's really just a you know a defense against the rape or defense you know in August against rape charges and what is why some women don't come forward because they're gonna be cross examine is going to be a miserable experience but you gotta do it yeah obviously it's funny she does not have the moral courage your writing skill to really make her point but she hints around the edges at at that due process is is not fare in this sort of trial and we should eliminate it boy that's scary thing I don't even know one result I want out of this RB one scene is awful and I hope he's in jail for the rest of his life but if it becomes standard that you could have consensual sex with a man for years before and after you claim a rape and there's email saying I love you and you're you know you're one of the best things that ever happened and stuff like that we have a bad break up you could say at some point he raped me that's a tough one and it's just said she said what all these ever do that say naive people Yvonne could trump Donald's first wife her lawyer claimed that in the divorce fight so she can get a little more money out of home and then when it came to him running for president she said she stated that never happened today absolutely did not happen so you have people do that all the time fake allegations of rape which isn't the unbelievably have morally bankrupt I mean it is or effect it's a it's a tough when you don't want the rapist to go free but you don't want it's it's a morally and ethically and legally really difficult like I said I haven't seen all the prosecution I hope there's plenty to put him away as a rapist yeah but I got all these emails and now heard talking about consensual sex and emails about how great the sex was and everything like that that's a tough one to send somebody to prison right and it didn't don't misunderstand us we understand that he absolutely could have raped her in the first of all it can

So what can I do for you Manny from my wife, she's really sad? Because she loves her camera on her wall, way mate nine and she don't know how much longer the way phone is gonna last year. She does the cameras is something important and do him. Yeah those him. So why ways Chinese company that the US government has deemed is security, concern, partly because the ownership of always unclear while as always said, well, it's owned by the employee's, they can't really demonstrate that the man who runs wall weighs a former a member of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. He's a and, and it's thought that, while they might have Chinese government money behind it. There's also the issue of any company that runs in China is alternately going to be after do whatever president. She says they should do so initially the concern this actually started way back in twenty twelve when I was at the US department of commerce, I think it was warned. Tech companies about buying gear from three Chinese companies while way shall me. And Z T E last year's e two e was basically put out of business by government restrictions on their stuff. And while way is the target this year. The, the government has now ordered that no US official US government office can buy gear from alway they've encouraged our carriers are local carriers. Actually, I think that made it illegal for them, and encouraging our allies in around the world, not to use walleyes networking equipment for their five G their next generation cellphone installations. And they even got to win while we had a deal last year to distribute this these incredible phones. They make their the number two phone manufacturer in the world. They would probably have been number one had this not happened. These great phones that they make they had a deal with AT and T two. Tribute them, and the government whispered in the year of AT and T. We think and, and they pull the plug. And while was very I remember last a year ago, the ES chairman away, or the US, he was the US guy at what was hop and man on stage and ever since they haven't sold their phone in the US. But this most recent restriction, President Trump signed it into I think an executive order a couple of weeks ago means that most companies that are doing business with. Wow. We have pulled out including the one that you care about most, which is Google Google initially said, we're not going to offer our any of the Google features to while away for putting inclusion in their phones. And most importantly, the while we would stop getting patches security patches, they relented, a little bit, the government relented and said, okay, three more months. So you've got three months for that mate nine but at some point, and I would keep watching the news, because President Trump's confuse the issue a little bit initially in one sentence. Actually, he said in one sense, it's a concerted security concern. But if we have a trade deal with China that everything will be fine, which is it is it a security concern, or is it a trade issue is this part of our trade war, what is going on and it's not clear. I've never seen proof from anybody that while way is dangerous in any way.

And so the idea was Hong Kong would get fifty more years of this system. Right. They would not be immediately absorbed. It would not have to become communist or anything like that, because that would have been just a completely radical change in Lord knows what it would have to send in the army. If you wanted to do that. Big is agreement. But at the same time, was there, a culture of dissidents and executive among Hongkongers, there was, and I can it's really I remember at midnight on that night, the People's Liberation Army rolling across the border into Hong Kong, and there was a feeling of dread. And I think they came to the prince of Wales barracks. That night right on Victoria harbour. There was great concern. There's a history in Hong Kong of people coming there who are exiled from China, certain cultural evolution people literally made rafts and floated down the river and swam to Hong Kong. But many of them have always had a second passport because Hong Kong, always seemed a temporary place. Not shouldn't you neither east nor west and that night, one of my strongest memories was standing outside the legislative council building as China was taking back control. And there were the democratic legislators, particularly Martin Lee, the godfather of Chinese democracy of. Vowing to do everything they could to keep Hong Kong free. And to continue to push for political representation inside Hong Kong for ordinary people and to resist the authoritarian regime. That was essentially taking control of the city. There is a mix now. I mean, there are democratically elected lawmakers, of course. But you, you have different factions, you have pro-beijing people, particularly some of them may have a mainland background. Also, they are very much oriented towards the economy of China and see great advantage to integrating with China because the economy, his so huge there now. And just I think recently, the Shenzhen economy surpassed the Hong Kong Konami, so Hong Kong, no longer has the kind of leverage that it once had, and it's very dependent on the mainland in a way. That was not true, a twenty two years ago there is more anxiety. I mean nineteen Ninety-seven was not even a decade after was there anxiety having watched. What happened in TNN with the handover was somebody else? Interesting. I look back. On what we wrote them as journalists. And at the time I felt like our coverage was maybe a little sensationalistic in the sense that we talked about the gloom and doom. But in fact, the reality was nothing was going to change soon. And so even ten years on as I looked, sometimes I would go back and look at my own writings and go, you know, was it was a little over the top, or a little too dark in terms of its approach. I now feel our coverage was right. Or maybe should have been even tougher because we've seen what's happened. And it's become very clear that this regime under Xi Jinping cannot tolerate one country, two systems. I want to spend one more moment of ninety seven Hanover. There's video archives of the last governor from the UK candid back the British flag looking really overcome with emotion. This is Chris Patten, right? Yeah. My wife, we covered this together.

KCBS anchor Scotla teary smoke with Gordon Chang, a writer, an expert on Chinese and Asian affairs. There a real threat to China is actually going to invade a country like Taiwan or saber rattling what's concerning is that? Yes, we've heard these words before from teaching thing that the People's Liberation Army should prepare for war. But it comes at a time when there's increased infighting at the top of the communist party and we've heard a number of. Belligerent caused by siege. In pain. What's the guard to Taiwan on Wednesday? For instance, he said that China was willing to use force to reunite the island and clearly there's been some other events going on. So there should be concerned that even though senior thing probably doesn't want war. He could end up with one on his hands talk a little bit about what would the American response be to an unprovoked war by China. We don't know the United States doesn't have a defense treaty with Taiwan. Many people think that the American people wouldn't fight for Taiwan. Taiwan is critical to America's western defense perimeter. Because for more than one hundred years, we've drawn our defense perimeter not off the coast of Hawaii or even Guam but off the coast of Asia and Taiwan anchors the center of that line. Also, if we allowed China to take over a democracy, it would have worldwide repercussions. So it's in the United States. Interest to make sure that China does not try to take over Taiwan. We could do that. With just a few simple words that Dow shall not. But unfortunately, American administrations have decided not to do that. Right.

Well, certainly were not, you know, President Trump clearly has sympathies for Taiwan and we've seen that two out of administration. But also his administration has done some things, which aren't very good. So for instance, James Mattis in one of his last fax vetoed. A State Department request to station marines at the American Institute in Taiwan headquarters near Taipei. That's sent a signal of weakness.

While way began when a wrench in say was demobilized from the People's Liberation Army in the early nineteen eighty as part of a large grand demobilization, and he. Likes to tell the story how he needed a job. He decided that electron IX was was the future. Devoted some of his university. Classes to to that subject and began to import electronic equipment for a vastly expanding market for such in China and eventually became reconnected with his former colleagues in the LA who also wanted from him new electric equipment in by the early nineteen nineties while way was on its way to becoming a principal supplier, not just to the People's Liberation Army, but to the Chinese government, which was rapidly building its first nationwide fiber optic network. And while we supplied the fiber optic cables, the routers, and that was when it really began to take off exploiting this internal market in order to invest in production and development. Capabilities that has made it such a global competitor. And behemoth, Gordon. This was about the time while way was started. When I remember that you have reports that Johnson, and then the leader of China wanted to get the PLA out of business. So it had to break its formal links with all sorts of businesses. Anyway, it appears so that what they did was they said to one of their former officers, look, you're established the company will support it. You support us afterwards is that an unreasonable interpretation. That's that's quite a reasonable interpretation. Gordon? By the mid to late nineteen eighty s the Chinese were very aware that the internet revolution was sweeping the world, and that that the Chinese government and the people's army had to be a leading factor in this and this gave cause to support not just Weiwei, but many new companies that then scrambled and competed to become a principal suppliers. And by the early nineteen ninety s they were well on their way, Rick because while way is now identified by five is as a security threat. Does it have a response is there is there something that we know it can do to validate his claims that it is not a threat. Hallway makes? A great effort to.

It goes as far as to reveal source codes of technology. So as to try to assure countries and local security officials that they're clean that they're not part of a grand scheme to wire the world and in and steal whatever they want. But we only need look at the case of the African Union. Earlier earlier this year. Lamont the French newspaper reported that the African Union had discovered that over the previous five years one of its hallway servers. Was downloading everything gathered on the Chinese built Weiwei Z T E built a network in the African Union in transferring it to a server in Shanghai. This has been going on for five years before African Union technicians discovered. This and tried to put a stop to it. Why would server in Shanghai have to download all of the information of the African Union the Chinese purchase the building they designed the building? They built the building. They wired the building they outfitted the all of the communication suite of the building. And they turned the building into a massive intelligence gathering operation. Gordon, we have less than a minute. That's a complete and comprehensive Lancer. Rick. I understand no trust whatsoever. Ever ever ever? Go ahead, Gordon of less than minute, Rick.

"People's Liberation Army a unit called unit six one three nine eight that specialized in targeting businesses, US businesses for the economic gain of their competitors. And maybe talk a little bit about what we saw them taking. What did you see the? That case what we saw you mentioned even their even their their their notes for for a court case. Yes, exactly. So we saw things like Westinghouse was about to do a joint venture with a Chinese partner, and they were going to lease something release a lead pipe. So the Chinese company would pay for it. But the secret of how to make the lead. Pipe would remain with Westinghouse. We saw these uniformed members of the People's Liberation Army. Go into their system and steal the technical design specifications for that pipe. So they no longer have to pay more build it themselves or to use. Another example, there was a US subsidiary of a German multinational that made solar power and their what they stole just from the Email was discussions about pricing. And they use that information about where they were going to price it, and where they needed to price it in order to price dump dill illegally. Put the price below your cut exactly enforce that company into bankruptcy. And then the example that you mentioned add insult to injury when that company sued for an uncertain unfair trade. Practice. They stole the whole litigation strategy. So it gives you a sense of the of the scale. It was a controversial case when it happened. Because people said why are using this tool the tool of the criminal Justice system to address state espionage, and it's an important question. And what we said was we're doing it because it isn't traditional espionage spying to protect your national security is actually recognized under international law, and almost every country publicly knowledge is that they have they don't say what they do. But they have an agency that's doing that. What was difference? Here is that it was theft that it was the use of the military arm to target these private companies. We put an exhibit in this case to show just how much of this job. This was this was activity that started around nine in the morning. Beijing time went from around nine to noon, then they paused looks like lunch break for about an hour then back to business and you'd see. Continue to the end of the day paused on weekends and sometimes on Chinese holidays. So that's that's part of the reason you knew who is behind. That's right. So circumstantial evidence the prosecutor. But also think about is the second largest military of the world and every morning they're putting on their uniform, and they're going to work and their day job is simply to target and hack US companies to steal things. Are you just another example this wasn't through cyber hacking? Actually, this was through a physical person. But to give you a sense of what they're targeting they literally stole from DuPont. Titanium dioxide formula. What's that you may wonder it was the formula for the color white the colour white that's used in Oreo cookies. So we say they were stealing things that are not state secrets but valuable they stole the the the color white in the Orioles day new already. Yeah. Is that? Talk a little bit about the case that seemed to be the North Korean case of attacking sunny and then getting emails getting in varying emails because emails always have some embarrassing emails on them. And then just getting it out over social media that seems like. Well, do you consider that a national security case a criminal case, what do you how do you look at it? So it's interesting to the case the People's Liberation Army case that we just discussed was the first with China, and we were war gaming out. What would it look like for years? We had what's it gonna look like if a rogue nuclear armed nation decides to attack the United States through cyber means. And we did exercise is about the electrical grid and other areas. And we all got it wrong. We never figured that the first major attack was going to be about a motion picture, right? And I don't know if you've if you've seen that movie. I haven't.

We had a very serious national security briefings in the morning, and I the director of the FBI at the time of the attorney general at all had to watch had to watch this movie.

Although some people like it, so we went I did read it like a national security event in partly what we were thinking was though this wasn't what we expected. But if we don't figure out a way to respond and treat the company as a victim rather than blaming them for the fact that a foreign power was able to attack them we're going to allow it's not a critical physical part of our infrastructure, which is the way we have been thinking about it. But it is a core. American value, the right of free speech. And the fact is that the North Korean leadership didn't doesn't share that value, and they were reaching in from all the way across the world and attacking a company to cause fear to prevent them to chill them from being able to exercise free speech. And that's why we thought it was very important to treat it like a national. Security event that it was. When we move on to talk a little bit about. Cooperation among governments. I am going to ask you about. This is the the melting of a of a criminal. Approach on the one hand and national security issue on the other. But but I wanted to just stay with this sunny case for a moment because in it social media played a role not on purpose. But it was used then moved to mainstream media. I was reading about this case on from the New York Times said talk a little bit about the tools that are at the disposal of the North Koreans when when they want to retaliate for movie, they don't like the new, and that's a great point. And so at the time we gotten we've gotten better because we'd done this test case, which was the first time of working across law enforcement intelligence in cyber to make public what we're seeing in the People's Liberation Army case, and we started furiously trying to do the same here with the cooperation of Sony who who did it. And why would they have done it? And we were able to figure out with enough confidence to say. Publicly that it was North Korea within twenty eight days and then sanctions were imposed. I'll talk a little bit more about that later. But to your question. One thing that's interesting, especially looking back on it and dissecting what caused the harm to Sony. Why do you remember this only case? And when I go around the country speaking on this issue and working with clients everyone remembers Sony, the reason why people remembered Sony was the theft of information. That's not usually protected people. Protect their crown jewels. They protect the infrastructure of their system, but they took just Email traffic that was embarrassing not trade secret, but embarrassing emails, and then they weaponized it. They took advantage of the new world that we're living in just like the Islamic state or ISIS used social media to crowdsource terrorism here, North Korea used social media and these non traditional media members to push out, the embarrassing emails. They then watched as that got picked up by the mainstream media. Those are the articles. That you referenced that were in every not just tabloid the major paper they were on the network news. That's what caused the damage to Sony Sony's brand in that sense. They they took advantage of our system. The our free system of expression in our free press to cause damage to the same value is that's the reason why we have a free press, which was free speech to punish someone for free speech that weaponising of information and this sideways or unusual method of attack was a lesson that we've seen other applies. It was part of the Russian toolkit or playbook when they wanted to undermine confidence. Not just in our elections in two thousand sixteen but a playbook they've been doing in other elections in in Europe. I think we need to do now is realized the genie's out of the bottle. And so we we've seen Russia. Do it. The verdict is that it was. Successful. Right. They believe that it was a success case of the US in the case of the US. And so we should expect now until we figure out a way to solve that problem by either causing enough pain to the adversaries through deterrence or by hardening systems, and you can think of creative ways to do that I'll go through one, but that others are going to copycat it, and we need to be on the watch throughout the world France in terms of a low once you start realizing the world, we live in which is why it's so important to try to make public what we're seeing bad guys do be they nation states or crooks or terrorists and increasingly they're blended. Once you start figuring that out and realizing the frame, and the frame is basically we moved over twenty five thirty year period from moving almost everything we value from analog space to digital. Space right from paper and books to bits and bytes. And we did. So seeing the upside but without calculating the risk and without thinking through. Hey now that we do this move all the same back is be those who prey on children terrorists nation states. They're going to move to. And we're just starting to see now a reckoning both in federal government and private where people start to calculate. What that risk is doesn't mean you drop the systems but start thinking through. Okay. If this is the world we live in. How do I protect myself and one of the things you need to do is think through? Hey, there is no product out there for a while people thought, oh, I use the right service. I can build a wall essentially that's high enough or deep enough to keep a dedicated adversary out of our system, unfortunately, that technology does not exist. So you need to think what's going to happen the day after what could they do when they're inside my system. And how can I plan ahead of time based on those risks? But how I can get back to doing if it's a business selling what I need to sell or in the case of a campaign. How do I keep it from not causing harm to my campaign? Sickly a matter of resilience. It's not just prevention. But how do you balance back that's the fundamental mindshift exactly from not you need to focus on prevention as well. But at just as much time energy and for resilience. It takes not the IT specialists not technical specialists, but the people in the company who really understand the core either product if it's a business campaign strategy or government mission. If it's a government agency, I've talked for a while to companies and said, okay, when you think about the fact that bad guy can get in your system, then don't put your crown jewels inside a folder called crown jewels. That idea. Right. Doesn't mean you get rid of your crown jewels. Folder, though, put inside there's something that won't work. Let bad guy spend time money energy, stealing the wrong thing. Trying to use some something that won't work. We've been hearing from John Carlin.
"liberation army" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"We're going to bring you news of the week insights from the magazine and so much more. It's a special week though, Carol because we've got to blockbuster stories that really anchor the magazine this week, we've got one on the big hack. This is exclusive investigative reporting about the Chinese government infiltrating some of the world's biggest company. We also have a business week exclusive on a quiet army of sixteen thousand Jason it has an a subversive side movie is the state of our current day politics in the United States. But I gotta get back to that cover story the big hack, right? Bloomberg BusinessWeek has uncovered the most significant known supply chain attack ever against US companies. And Jason we're talking about apple we're talking about Amazon dot com. Here's Jordan Robertson in twenty fourteen in two thousand fifteen a unit specialized unit of China's People's Liberation army implanted militias microchips in server motherboards bound for US companies. That one is a militias microchip do think about it as a permanent infection in the hardware of a computer. This is kind of the ultimate hack. It's the ideal hack because every time those servers boot up the hardware. The malware loaded in this motion chip in Jackson self into the operating system. Infects the computer every time it turns on it's the ultimate attack. And it was found inside computers used by Amazon and apple as well as dozens of other companies. And so once they're in a computer like that what can happen when we first started reporting the star. I tip actually came during the Obama administration. So both the Obama and the Trump administration are have been deeply concerned about this issue of supply chain security. You know, what happens once you get inside a computer? We initially thought this must be about theft of consumer data. Apple was hit the series division was that this must be about China wanting to steal series or data and we're quickly corrected by several sources. They said that's not what this is about. At all the reason. China would go through the trouble the expense. The cost the time of engineering these motherboards in this way is for long term access to sensitive networks. It's about theft of corporate intellectual property theft of military secrets and long-term stealth access to sensitive network. Join one thing that struck me in your reporting, you sky, say it's the scale and ambition of these moves that makes it unlike any other Chinese hacking or infiltrations that have gone before. Yeah. This is a super complicated attack. I've covered cybersecurity for over a decade as has my colleague, Mike Riley who co-authored the report we've never seen anything like this. This really is one source called it. The cutting edge of the cutting edge to manipulate computer hardware, in this way is much harder than doing a software based attack. You can teach yourself how to software hacker at home. You could teach yourself to be hardware hacker to it's just so much more difficult. So the level of sophistication the level kind of ingenuity and resources that these attackers had we're willing to. To get inside apple to get inside government. Contractors was just extraordinary. It's like science fiction, so Jordan as you say, this is opened up a whole new front in a lot of ways talk to us about the broader vulnerability that it really exposes here. Sure. Again, we started reporting the story one of our assumptions was we'll certainly large companies like apple or Amazon, and he and your banks government contract is certainly they must be looking at all their hardware the same where they do their software. They must have security tools that somehow test for their reliability and their security. What we found is those don't exist. You know, there's a cybersecurity industry is one hundred billion dollar industry, almost none of that goes to hardware security if you let that sink in. That's really incredible. You have this massive industry built up around software security network security, all kinds of security, but hardware security is this thing that's been overlooked. And the reason is it's hard to do. It's hard to inspect hardware. It's it's expensive. It's time consuming. If people haven't thought about it in in realistic ways as as a threat to their to their networks. So as a result commercial, tools haven't been developed to to look for the stuff and companies just don't look at their hardware. The same way they do as other parts of their computer infrastructure. So we're hoping that one result of this story will be that organizations will take hardware just as seriously as a security risk as the rest of the network. So in speaking of the organizations that are cited or the companies that are cited in your story. What did apple say what did Amazon say what did the Chinese government say what did the company that's at the heart of this the supplier over? In China, say, sure, yeah. This is a really important point. I'm glad you has. So in our story and on the website we include full denials from Amazon, Apple and super micro, which is a server supplier. Now, these are full robust unambiguous denials and we've gotten the question, why would you on the store? Well, throw lots of reasons to deny story such as this. We won't get into that the calculus that we had to to undertake was as we say in the story, we had seventeen dirt sources with the wrecks and knowledge of this in these incidents. He's our senior people inside apple inside, Amazon and across branches of government. So when you take a look at the store, you take a look at the constellation of sources their seniority their access to information. They're the reason they would have access this information. The reason they would know this stuff. You weigh that against the company's denials, and what you're left with is a very powerful picture of an attack that very clearly happen. But the companies are denying it. There are many reasons that could be that that influence our decision to publish preponderance of. Evidence. We believe proves that this.
