Former Pentagon Worker Sentenced in China Spy Case

AP reports on the sentencing of a former Pentagon analyst on espionage charges:

At a sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court, Gregg W. Bergersen, 51, of Alexandria, apologized and said he never meant to hurt his country.

Bergersen thought that Louisiana businessman Tai Kuo, the recipient of the information, was aligned with the Taiwanese government and that the information was furthering the establishment of a sophisticated new air defense system in Taiwan, called Po Sheng.

But Kuo was actually a spy for the People’s Republic of China and was relaying the information provided by Bergersen to the Communist regime in Beijing.
