Alleged Chinese spies are suspected of infiltrating U.S. military bases in Alaska under the guise of lost tourists. This revelation follows a recent incident where a Chinese fighter jet acted aggressively towards a U.S. aircraft, raising tensions and questions about the strategies in place to counter China’s influence.
- Chinese citizens, believed to be spies for the Communist Chinese Party, have reportedly gained access to U.S. military bases in Alaska on multiple occasions, claiming to be lost tourists.
- In one instance, a car driven by Chinese individuals passed security checkpoints and entered a base in Fairbanks, where a drone was found in their possession.
- These incidents are believed to be efforts to gather intelligence on U.S. military capabilities in Alaska.
- Tensions have escalated recently after a Chinese fighter jet flew directly in front of a U.S. plane over the South China Sea in an event deemed “unnecessarily aggressive” by the Pentagon.
- Despite the increasing Chinese influence, high-level meetings between U.S. and U.K. officials have not produced a clear strategy to counter it.
- The incidents involving supposed tourists in Alaska remain largely classified, but it is suspected that these individuals may have had ulterior motives, possibly related to espionage.
