U.S. officials said both “China and Taiwan were possible nations that received top secret information from the suspect Lieutenant Commander Edward Lin, who was born in Taiwan and later became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Although at this point it is pure conjecture it would appear that Lin was introduced to a prostitute to gain his favor and willingness to spy against his Nation.
Lin spoke “fluent Mandarin and managed the collection of electronic signals from the EP3-E Aries II signals intelligence aircraft.” At the time of his appointment as a LT Commander, Edward Lin took the following oath: “I, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God."
In 2008 the US Navy featured the Asian Born Commander Lin as a wide-eyed 14 years old dreaming of Disney Land when he and his family left Taiwan. The Lin family had to travel halfway around the world, stopping in different countries along the way.” Many questions remain un-answered such as: What countries did they traveled to. Did his family receive monies and special help at the time from the secret service of the Chinese Peoples’ Liberation Army/Navy? Why were the Lin’s portrayed by the U.S. Navy as ”highly intellectual that they readily adapted to new cultures and they found inventive ways to communicate while learning new languages”? The U.S. Navy portrayed the Lin family as immigrants traveling to America very much like U.S. military families transferring to overseas duty stations and finding their lives turned upside down?
Why did they take the experience of this naturalized Taiwanese citizen and project Lin’s life as a navy recruiting poster? The U.S. Navy PR department further glorified Asian Diversity Military family’s that struggled to find a home, employment and schools for their children.
According to the U.S. Navy Air Systems Command, “The EP-3E Aries II is a land-based Multi-Intelligence reconnaissance aircraft based on the P-3 Orion airframe. The EP-3E ARIES II was recently upgraded from SIGINT to Multi-Intelligence and is the Navy's only land-based reconnaissance aircraft. The EP-3 aircraft in the Navy's inventory provide fleet and theater commanders worldwide with near real-time tactical SIGINT and full motion video intelligence.
With sensitive receivers and high-gain dish antennas, the EP-3E exploits a wide range of electronic emissions from deep within targeted territory. The crew fuses the collected intelligence along with off-board data and disseminates the collaborated information for direct threat warning, indications and warnings, information dominance, battle space situational awareness, suppression of enemy air defenses, destruction of enemy air-defense, anti-air warfare and anti-submarine warfare applications. The EP-3E Aries II Airspeed is 411 knots and cruises at 328 knots. Maximum ceiling is 28,000 feet (8534.40 meters). Range is 2,380 nautical miles. The EP-3 has a crew of 24 navy officers and enlisted men and women.” In 2015, The Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force (MPRF) was organized into three Patrol and Reconnaissance Wings at NAS Jacksonville, Florida, NAS Whidbey Island, Washington, and NAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.
Composed of 14 Patrol and Reconnaissance squadrons, one Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS) and over 45 subordinate commands, the MPRF is the Navy's premier provider for airborne Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW), and maritime Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations.
The 2016 Australian Defense white paper stated that “China’s increasingly assertive behavior, which some interpret as moves toward eventual hegemony over East Asia and the Western Pacific…China continues to move toward an apparent objective of annexing the South China Sea…”
Due to China’s expansionism in Southeast Asia, Australia will buy 15 Boeing P-8 Poseidons to be part of the current seven Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Tritons. To keep a watch on China’s air and sea military activities in the North Pacific Ocean, over 1,700 personnel will be hired in the fields of intelligence, cyber and ISR. Australia has made a commitment to buy 100 F-35s.
Seventy-two F-35s will replace the 72 Boeing F/A 18 A/B Hornets. All of the F-35s squadrons will be operational in 2020. Australia has a fleet of nine French Government Airbus A330 MRTT tankers. The current Australian Boeing Vigilare air defense and the Jindalee over-the- horizon radar network will be upgraded with additional all-source intelligence systems. Up to five Gulfstream ISR G550 will be acquired by early 2020 and replace the P-3 Orion submarine hunters.
President Obama continued to replace male military commanders with gender “correct” appointees within the U.S. Military Command Structure. Rear Adm. Sandy L. Daniels relieved Rear Adm. Matthew J. Carter as Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Group/Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Group Pacific. On March 23, 2016, Obama selected Janine Davidson as undersecretary of the U.S. Navy. Susan J. Rabern is the current undersecretary of the U.S. Navy for Financial Management and Comptroller. Rabern was involved in the USAID Office of Military Affairs which was known to have orchestrated the overthrow of Eastern European Governments-Serbia, Ukraine’s Orange Revolution, etc. In July 1, 2014, President Obama appointed an African-Affirmative Action Admiral Michelle Howard, as Vice Chief of Naval Operations. U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Nora Tyson is leading the San Diego-based 3rd Fleet. The U.S. Navy's “2017 budget proposal permanently deactivates the tenth carrier air wing, bringing the number of air wings in line with the nine deployable aircraft carriers at any given time.” Seth Cropsey, director of the Center for American Sea power at the Hudson Institute believes that the U.S. Navy would need 16 carriers to cover key parts of the world’s oceans.
