Prather Report has no friends
Chicago Sun Times, July 12, 1999
By Robert Novak Chicago Sun Times columnist

Jack Kemp last Wednesday released a startling document that was quickly consigned to oblivion. An experienced weapons scientist found that the Cox Report erred in claiming Chinese espionage penetrated U.S. weapons laboratories while failing to recognize Clinton administration culpability. As much as President Clinton would rather not hear this, Republicans like it even less.

Robert Novak appears on the CNN programs "Capital Gang" at 6 p.m. Saturday, and "Evans, Novak, Hunt and Shields" at 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday.

BEIJING, May 8 (Xinhua) -- The government of the People's Republic of China issued a statement here this morning, in which it lodged the strongest protest against the NATO bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia.
"The Chinese government and people express their utmost indignation and severe condemnation of the barbarian act," it said. "The U.S.-led NATO should bear all responsibilities arising therefrom," it stated.
The Chinese government reserves the right to take further actions on the matter, it said.
U.S.-led NATO forces dropped three missiles from different angles on the embassy of the People's Republic of China in Yugoslavia at midnight Friday.
The building of the embassy was seriously damaged. At press time, two had been confirmed dead while more than 20 were injured with two others missing.

President Clinton apologised publicly to China yesterday for the bombing of its Belgrade embassy, but insisted that an "isolated tragic mistake" caused by faulty CIA information should be set against deliberate "ethnic cleansing" in Kosovo.

Critics pointed out that the CIA's lack of information on Belgrade stands in sharp contrast to evidence that Chinese spies have been plundering American nuclear secrets for more than a decade. The US has long expressed concern that China has provided nuclear weapons or missile technology to Pakistan and Iran, fears compounded by China's suspension of diplomatic relations on arms control and international security after the embassy bombing.     (Full text)

Burton Reacts to Reports of Chinese Theft of U.S. Nuclear Technology
March 9, 1999

Washington, DC -- the Government Reform Committee   Chairman Dan Burton (R-IN) today criticized the Clinton Administration’s inadequate response to reported evidence of Chinese theft of U.S. nuclear technology. Burton said that these latest revelations about Chinese efforts to compromise America’s national security highlighted once again the failure of the Clinton Administration to seek the Chinese Government’s cooperation in his Committee’s investigation into foreign attempts to corrupt the 1996 elections.
"What we have here is another instance of the Clinton Administration putting politics above all else," Burton said. "First, the political process was tainted by foreign involvement and now the American people cannot help but question whether the Clinton Administration has jeopardized their security."
In 1998, the Government Reform Committee investigated and held hearings into the illegal flow of foreign cash into the 1996 election cycle. That investigation is ongoing.     (Full text)
