My name is Patricia Meyer and I am director of L.A.W.S., Inc. For the past 17 years my organization has been working to find justice for the American workers, retirees and their families. Over the years we have been in contact with many Senators and Congressmen. I attended the House Auto Hearings in 2008 and submitted many of the questions that were asked that day.
I recently read the Reuters' article "US senators raise concern about Huawei-Sprint deal" stating your concerns about the China-based Huawei Technologies bid to supply equipment to Sprint Nextel Corp and possibility of the undermining of U.S. national security. I, too, am concerned about our national security being compromised by the sharing of technology and research with China.
I have been approached by two retired University of Michigan professors, CW Kauffman and Doug Smith, who are very concerned about the trading of military information and technology with Chinese exchange students and faculty members. One head of a department at U of M, who had been in America since 1979, defected back to China in 2010. I can't but wonder whether he was a sleeper agent all of those years.
They are also concerned about Michigan's new governor Rick Snyder's ownership of companies that have sent communications technology to China. It is not known if an export license was ever issued to these companies to allow this information to be sent abroad. There are many other companies who are also sharing sensitive information and technology with China.
I was asked to help them be heard in Washington so letters along with added information have been sent to Representatives Jan Schakowsky and C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger who are members of the House Intelligence Committee. I feel that it is a matter of national security that this situation be investigated and corrected as soon as possible. Not only are we losing valuable technology but we are putting our country in peril. We need to be more careful about our national security if we are to survive. You can find out more about these professors' concerns by going to our website disputethis.org and viewing a short video. I am also including in this fax some information for you.
The professors and I are willing to come to Washington to meet with you and whomever else you feel is concerned about this situation. Please feel free to contact me at 269-998-4609 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a time and place for a meeting and/or more information.
