    Original story I quoted was not clear on that, the links I have added since are more clear.

    So then ....

    Since I would consider tracking military units to be a legitimate function of the NSA, I would think this is something that falls under their authority.

    Now, if the NSA is stealing economic information from the Chinese, that would be an issue.  Which is what this indictment from the US against the Chinese is about.

    If you keep reading you will find the stories claim this intelligence was gained by NSA and NSA subcontractors doing electronic surveillance of military targets in China and accuses them of doing electronic military surveillance of US targets.

    So then, both are OK with you, right?

    Both just doing their jobs?

    Well perhaps that's the real point of all this. Perhaps the US is working on a little PR campaign to get people to go back to their knitting.

    No one is coming to save us, the future is in our hands.
