    The variety of technologies that provide the American military with air, space, sea, and land dominance, and deters future aggressors, will always be sought by our potential adversaries.

    It's always easier to steal technology than to spend enormous sums of money and time on research and development.

    It's not only China and Russia who want access. You'd be surprised at the number of EU countries, and current allies, that are attempting to gain access to our most-treasured tactics, techniques, procedures, and technology.

    Why would anyone be interested in military files when they're not in the military? Those that had access are undoubtedly millionaires. I'll it not not for the gains but to undermine its Intelligence. However, Ill keep them safe because I understand the consequences of such materials in the hands of the unauthorised guy

    While agree that Americans have short attention spans, one sentence does not an article make.

      @ Marvin, really? You relate an article on CNN to all Americans? Then you cannot even write it correctly to top it off.
