Former defense workers for Loral Space and Communications, Hughes
Electronics and the Honeywell Corporation have told WorldNetDaily that
much more was provided to the Chinese government when key U.S. aerospace
firms sold sensitive satellite and missile technology to China in 1994
Marjorie L. Walker, a retired engineer who spent years working under
people she believes were spying for China said that multiple U.S.
corporations, perhaps unwittingly at times, have supplied a steady
stream of intelligence and technological data to Beijing-based companies
who also have ties to the Chinese military.

Walker, who has met regularly over the years with other retired
defense engineers and workers, said U.S. companies have "transmitted
guidance problem solving information, production information on
manufacturing floor problems and C4-type intelligence data."
"In fact, McDonnell Douglas actually provided engineers to help the
Chinese set up their defense factories and train them in manufacturing
materials and procedures," she said.
Besides raw data, Walker told WorldNetDaily that companies have also
given or sold China "the precision tools with which to manufacture the
weapons at a cost of about 2 cents on the dollar, compared with the
amount originally paid by the American taxpayer." That has given the
People's Liberation Army (PLA), China's military, manufacturing
technology for key ballistic missile and weapons guidance systems --
thus reducing China's reliance on other countries to supply them with
"Normally that process takes about 15 to 20 years after concept
initiation to become reality," Walker said.

"You can have all the knowledge in the world (but) if you can't use
it, it is valueless," she said. "If, however, you have the knowledge and
someone shows you how to use the technology and all the manufacturing
techniques, they assure your success with that technology. And that is
what has happened."
For example, besides selling China the equipment, Motorola has also
provided engineers to help the Chinese build a secure telephone network
system. Walker said that one of the people who had originally come
forward "dropped out of our (regular meeting) group because his son is
one of the engineers that Motorola has sent to China." She said the son
is currently in Japan.
McDonnell Douglas also sold China precision machine tooling
equipment, then secured a contract to build aircraft and missile
factories outside of Shanghai, Walker told WorldNetDaily. She said she
had personally spoken to an associate in 1989 who had been sent there as
a contract worker by McDonnell Douglas "to help the Chinese set up the
manufacturing equipment. He knew how to make all of the equipment work
on the manufacturing floor, had top secret clearance, and had worked
with me earlier in Northrup's B-2 Division."
Regarding Northrup, Walker said while she was a manager there she was
certain that "we had espionage going on all the time." While she said
that Northrup "ran a very tight ship" compared with similar companies,
she said two top managers in particular "hindered much of the technical
progress on the B-2 bomber and in fact caused most of the overruns."
In fact, the attempts to delay the project were so deliberate that
she and others filed complaints with the company, which resulted in a
federal trial. "People were pressured ... and I saw grown men lie on the
witness stand," she said, adding that after their testimony they had
confided in her that they were not being truthful under oath. "Northrup
threatened them and my husband and I with losing our jobs if we
testified and told the truth. We did, and the pressure exerted upon us
afterward caused the disabilities which forced us out."
