Chinese Spying on Pearl Harbor from Within US Borders

The American military base at Pearl Harbor, located in Hawaii, has a long and significant history. In 1941, the base was targeted in a surprise attack by Japan, leading to the United States entering World War II. However, more recently, the base is facing new threats: suspicions of Chinese espionage.

Documents obtained by the Supervision Project of think tank The Heritage Foundation reveal that at least 14 cases involving attempted illegal access or surveillance by Chinese citizens have been recorded at or near the base since 2018. These documents were provided by the Navy Consolidated Law Enforcement Operations Center as a result of a request under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.

While The Heritage Foundation tried to obtain information about possible incidents of Chinese espionage at various American bases, only Pearl Harbor decided to collaborate and provide the records they had on attempted infiltrations.

The cases mentioned in the documents include instances of Chinese people attempting to fly drones over the base and taking photos of military installation’s entry points. These attempts raise serious concerns and have been investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) as well as the U.S. Navy’s police agency.

According to The Daily Signal, incidents of suspected Chinese espionage in recent years also include two individuals who were detained due to circumstances that were deemed suspicious. Chinese citizens have tried to enter the base and have even engaged in car chases around the area.

In response to these revelations, The US House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Accountability launched an investigation into these suspected attempts by Chinese citizens to access U.S. military bases and other sensitive government facilities. It is essential to ensure the security of such installations and protect the military personnel operating within them.
