Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

From RedState:  This is a big farkin’ deal.  RedState Managing Editor Jen Van Laar lays it out:

Almost exactly two years ago RedState broke the story of the defection of CCP counterintelligence official Dong Jingwei to the United States. The “terabytes” of data Dong, the highest-ranking Chinese defector ever, brought with him to the United States included information and data showing “that SARS-CoV-2 was manmade and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in addition to evidence confirming that the People’s Liberation Army managed the Wuhan bioweapons program (and others).” While it was essentially ignored by the mainstream media and dismissed by the professional former spook crowd, it was a huge story – so huge that RedState was hit with a DDOS attack just hours after it was published.

Here’s the zinger:

RedState can now confirm that Dong has been in a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) protection program since his defection. A Defense Intelligence Agency source close to the investigation, speaking on condition of anonymity, provided this update:

As of June 2023, Dong Jingwei is participating in one of DIA’s protection programs. He has voluntarily participated in debriefing meetings since his arrival, and continues to do so.

The source further explained that debriefing meetings will likely last for years for many reasons, including the position Dong held in the Chinese Communist Party, the type and quantity of information he provided, the lengthy process of corroborating highly technical information without jeopardizing operational security, and the potential use of some of the information in ongoing U.S. counterintelligence activities. In addition, since Dong is voluntarily participating in debriefing meetings and is not compelled to do so on a particular schedule, debriefing can move forward at an uneven pace. But, those debriefing meetings have borne fruit, as will be shown below.

As I said, this is a big deal.  My question is, when will the American people in general get to know what’s going on here?

Let’s see what is coming out of these debriefings.  Let’s see just what Mr. Dong is telling our folks, barring anything classified, of course.  We, as taxpayers, have a right to know something – and this has the potential to be huge.  Let’s have some transparency!

I just want to add, this is the kind of reporting that makes me really proud to be a small part of the RedState team.  If you can’t checking the RedState site daily, you should be!
