    For more than a year, hackers with ties to the Chinese military have been eavesdropping on U.S. Chamber of Commerce officialsinvolved in Asia affairs, authorities say.
    The hackers had access to everything in Chamber computers, including, potentially, the entire U.S. trade policy playbook.

    "The Chinese have attacked every major U.S. company, everygovernment agency, and NGO's. Their attacking the Chamber of Commerce is part of a pattern of their attacking everything in the US. If you're working on U.S.-China relations with an NGO, government agency, you can be sure the Chinese are reading your emails and on your computer," Richard Clarke, former White House counter-terrorism adviser, told ABC News.

    ..........................In late 2009, sources say China-based hackers broke into Google's computers and looked at the email accounts of human rights activists. In the same operation, 29 other companies were hit, including Dow Chemical, Yahoo and Morgan Stanley.

    The same year, a Chinese spy at Ford Motor Company downloaded thousands of files on hybrid engine design and gave them to the Chinese government, and a cyber attack traced to China allegedly stole design secrets to a U.S. stealth fighter jet.

    Congressional leaders say China is engaged in economic espionage on a scale never seen before.

    "You stack all of that up and I think there's a case to be made that this may be the greatest transfer of wealth through theft and piracy in the history of the world and we are on the losing end of it," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.Overall, the U.S. is hemorrhaging economic espionage to the tune of $250 billion.
