This is coolbert:
Here is another "bad egg", an ethnic Chinese [American citizen?], working for American intelligence, all the while, also working as a penetration agent for the Red Chinese!
Larry Wu-Tai Chin.
"Larry Wu-tai Chin . . . was a former Chinese language translator working for the CIA's Foreign Broadcast Information Service [FBIS]. He sold classified documents to the People's Republic of China from 1952 to 1985."
And prior to working for the CIA, was a civilian [??] employee of the U.S. Army, during the Korean conflict, and AT THE SAME TIME, A SPY FOR COMMUNIST CHINA!! A man, a spy for the enemy, causing damage to United Nations forces in Korea that cannot be underestimated.
From the wiki entry on Larry:
"Chin served as a Chinese translator in the US Army during the Korean War . . . He misrepresented the intelligence that he was translating from captured Chinese soldiers . . . He also provided the Chinese with the names of captured Chinese soldiers who were revealing information or intended to defect. The Chinese then specifically requested these soldiers by name to be released back to China before the armistice negotiations could take place. This delayed the negotiations process for over a year, resulting in countless lost lives."
"The main point of contention during the talks was the question surrounding the prisoners of war . . . As many as one third of the captured North Koreans and many more of the Chinese did not want to be returned to their communist countries"
"A major, problematic negotiation was the repatriation of prisoners of war (PoWs) . . . because many PVA and KPA soldiers refused repatriation to China and North Korea, the tactical warfare continued until the Chinese and North Koreans dropped the matter"
THE KOREAN WAR ARMISTICE TALKS RESULTED IN STALEMATE FOR A PERIOD OF TWO YEARS, IN LARGE MEASURE BECAUSE OF THE VILLAINY AND TREACHERY OF THIS ONE MAN, LARRY WU-TAI CHIN??!!
* Larry actually sat in as a translator during the interrogations of captured Chinese communist [Chicom] troops and DELIBERATELY MISINTERPRETED THOSE INTERROGATIONS!! Valuable intelligence was not only lost, but deception perhaps entered into the process?
* Larry passed on the names of cooperative Chicom POW to his spymasters. Those giving information AND THOSE WILLING TO DEFECT TO THE U.N. FORCES, NOT WILLING TO RETURN TO CHINA!!
* Someone ought to look at those translations Larry did for the CIA [FBIS] as well!
* Larry was active as an agent for over thirty years and never was even fully debriefed and interrogated when "discovered"! He hung himself while in jail, precluding the CIA [and the U.S. Army for that matter!] from finding out what exact damage he had done.
One man could wreak so much havoc, and get away with it, evading capture for so long as did Larry!?
