Brownback Press Conference to Announce Chinese Wholesale Spying on Olympic Hotel Guests
Will release translated documents ordering Internet surveillance of all guests at hotels near Olympic venues
WASHINGTON, July 28 /Standard Newswire/ -- U.S. Senator Sam Brownback tomorrow will hold a press conference at Noon to release translated documents, verified by two major international hotel chains with operations in China, that order all hotels near Olympic venues to install surveillance monitoring programs on all Internet traffic prior to the Olympics.
The State Department has long warned that travelers to China should consider all communications unsecure and that China routinely censors Internet traffic. The additional order given to all hotels to further enable the Communist Chinese government to monitor and record all Internet communications leading up to the Olympics is aimed at visiting guests and journalists.
From the document: "In order to ensure the smooth opening of Olympic [sic]... It is required that your company install and run the Security Management System for Internet Access from Public Places in addition to provide network interfaces consistent with the industrial technical standards on public security for the implementation the foregoing management and technical measures (the person who access the Internet must be registered in his or her real name)
