I told you about the claim by Redstate.com that the Defense Intelligence Agency had been working with a defector from China who held the highest level in the government of any Chinese defector ever. This defector reportedly was providing information on the origins of COVID-19 and other sensitive topics, and the DIA had kept this a secret even from other agencies such as the CIA and FBI out of concerns that they were infiltrated by Chinese spies.
Well, Redstate now claims that the defector has been identified as Dong Jingwei, a longtime official in China’s Ministry of State Security, responsible for counterintelligence efforts.
Dong has reportedly provided the DNI with electronic files containing massive amounts of sensitive information, the equivalent of millions of documents, on everything from China’s special weapons systems to the Chinese military’s operation of the Wuhan virus lab to the identities of Chinese spies and sources in the US.
Some official sources are poo-pooing the story, calling it a rumor or downplaying its importance if it is true. But according to Redstate, now that the name of the alleged defector has been published, the rest of the intelligence community is “scared (bleep)less.”
Read the entire article. This is either the most interesting work of spy fiction since Ian Fleming or it’s the biggest foreign intelligence bombshell in decades. I have a feeling we’ll find out which sooner rather than later. One clue will be to watch China and see how desperate they are to get Dong back to Beijing.
