Fake Chinese parts for U.S. military equipment

CNN's Eunice Yoon, reporting from China, investigates how easily counterfeit computer chips, including military grade, are produced and sold in China.

It is one aspect of a growing concern by American government officials about China's incursion into the American national security supply system.  Recently, the head of the House Intelligence Committee launched an investigation into whether a Chinese telecom company, one of the largest in the world, gives the Chinese government access to spy on America.  A recent intelligence community report also called out China for continued efforts to hack into American systems and steal economic and technology information.
