Pentagon Worker Sentenced In Spying Case

CNN is reporting that an ex Pentagon worker who supplied classified information to a New Orleans furniture salesman, whom he thought was, a Taiwanese aligned individual, but in reality a mainland China spy has been convicted of spying. The sentencing would be carried out later.

At the sentencing, 51 year old Gregg W. Bergersen of Alexandria apologized and said he never meant to hurt his country and he did it out of the sense that ends justified the means. All the time thinking that he was further strengthening the defence of American ally Taiwan.

Gregg reiterated in court that he did not do it for money but evidence provided by government prosecutors showed otherwise,

Prosecutors, though, said Bergersen was indeed motivated by financial gain, citing the thousands of dollars that Kuo gave him on gambling trips to Las Vegas, as well as Kuo’s promise of future employment after Bergersen retired from the federal government.

Chinese attacks on US, be it in the form of cyber or sleep agents is a potent, growing, and a long term threat that needs to be dealt on war term footing.

There is a huge population of Chinese expatriates in United States which the Chienese government can exploit to further its nefarious designs. To counter that, US needs to step up its efforts and see beyond its current embroglio of Iraq and Afghanistan.

      That may be the case but all doctors take a Hippocratic Oath:I swear to fullifl, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.I will not be ashamed to say I know not , nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given to me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.I will remember that I remain a member of society with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.
