CHINESE GENERAL MAKING DEMANDS ON U.S. ARMY LEADS TO INTERNAL REVIEW

The Washington Times on December 3, 2013, reported on a Chinese delegation visiting Fort Leavenworth, Kan., that might be the first to ever raise spying fears over its desire to obtain documents that were publicly available.

In September, Maj. Gen. Chen Dongdeng, the PLA’s director of “military engagement,” began aggressively asking his U.S. counterparts for open-source documents pertaining to U.S. military doctrine. His odd behavior prompted the Army to launch an internal review of it administrative practices,journal Foreign Policy reported. Excerpts below:

“What we’re looking into is the process of foreign delegations coming to military posts,” Army spokesman Lt. Col. Don Peters told Foreign Policy. “We’re looking for internal administrative procedures on how to better to do this, how we can do things better.”

A Congressional Research Service report from November sums up the dilemma for policy makers: “Skeptics and proponents of military exchanges with the PRC have debated whether the contacts achieve results in U.S. objectives and whether the contacts contribute to the PLA’s warfighting capability that might harm U.S. and allied security interests. Some have argued about whether the value that U.S. officials place on the contacts overly extends leverage to the PLA.”
