Joe Biden has only emboldened America’s enemies. Now they’re going in for the kill.
And this shocking infiltration put the Pentagon on a complete lockdown.
One of Biden’s first forays into foreign policy was his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan that left over a dozen Americans dead.
Since then, he has sent billions upon billions of dollars to Ukraine to fund a war that has turned into a bloody stalemate.
But his worst offense has come from his refusal to be firm against Chinese aggression.
China has sent spy balloons over the United States, established headquarters in American cities for their spy rings, and built bases in Cuba.
Now, they’re trying to infiltrate American military bases.
According to reports, the FBI and the Department of Defense have recorded more than 100 occurrences involving Chinese nationals posing as tourists in an attempt to infiltrate U.S. military bases and other federal sites.
The culprits, nicknamed “gate crashers,” vary from Chinese nationals captured entering into a US missile range in New Mexico to scuba divers discovered swimming in murky waters near a US government rocket launch facility in Florida, according to numerous US officials recently quoted in The Wall Street Journal.
The expanding tendency poses a possible espionage risk, since authorities suspect the Chinese government is pressuring people to serve in some situations in order to test and report on security methods at the locations.
In response to the report, an FBI spokesperson stated, “The greatest long-term counterintelligence threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property is from China.”
“The Chinese government is engaged in a broad, diverse campaign of theft and malign influence without regard to laws or international norms that the FBI will not tolerate,” an FBI spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
“In coordination with our defense and intelligence community partners, along with state and local law enforcement, the FBI is committed to protecting our national security and defense information from the Chinese government’s actions and ultimately, their efforts to undermine our democracy and those who defend it.”
The Journal said that at the end of last year, the FBI, the Defense Department, and other agencies looked at how to stop these kinds of attacks.
It is unknown how many of them were benign in nature. Some Chinese nationals, for example, claim to have been using Google Maps to find the nearest McDonald’s or Burger King, which happens to be on a neighboring military base.
Other, more worrying situations occurred when Chinese people arrived claiming to have a reservation at a hotel on a military base.
According to the Journal, a group of Chinese nationals posing as tourists tried to sneak past security at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, claiming they had reservations at a commercial hotel on the base. Fort Wainwright is home to the United States Army’s 11th Airborne Division, which specializes in Arctic combat.
“The security of our installations remains a top priority for the Department. Physical security standards for our bases takes into consideration a wide variety of potential threats, including attempted spying by our adversaries,” a Defense Department spokesperson also told Fox News Digital, reacting to the report.
“We work with local, State, and Federal law enforcement officials, the intelligence community, and our foreign partners to protect our military bases against these threats at home and abroad.”
The Department of Defense “has conducted several base security reviews since 2018, some of which included support by interagency partners,” the spokesperson continued.
“A recent review focused on the physical security condition of our gates, among other aspects of base security. The results of the reviews have and will continue to inform changes to the protective posture of our bases.”
