Top Official Admits F-35 Stealth Fighter Secrets Stolen

Yesterday, at a subcommittee hearing attended by just half a dozen Senators, the Pentagon’s top weapons buyer made a blunt admission: The military’s most expensive program, the stealthy F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, has been hacked and the stolen data used by America’s adversaries. Under Secretary Frank Kendall didn’t say by whom, but the answer is almost certainly China, a cyber superpower whose People’s Liberation Army Air Force has recently rolled out some suspiciously sophisticated stealth fighter prototypes of its own. The Russians also have skilled hackers and “5th Generation” stealth jet programs, but they’re not suspected of such direct copying, at least not yet.

If you've read The Art of War you should know that success in war often relies on deception. The USA is a large country such that it can run large scale deceptions when it comes to their true capabilities.

For example we know there exists a secret aircraft dubbed Aurora, which no one has ever seen. This stealth recon aircraft has been flying since at least the 1990s, its odd looking contrails detected in satellite images.

So why not keep other technology hidden away and make a spectacle out of the '5th generation' stealth fighter technology, and even rattle on about upgrading modern ICBM nuke warhead designs, when you have a few aces carefully hidden away? And note: the full capability of US satellites is unknown but it's possible they can see through water to detect submarines, have 24 hour blanket global coverage and other features. If you look at how NASA operates with very low funding to produce great results, imagine hidden military programs operating in the same way with ten times the budget.

And look at the NSA/ECHELON revelations when it come to hidden capability. The recent news we have into this shadow world is that ALL communications have been recorded from all sources around the planet.

I do not think the F-35 stealth fighter tech is the leading technology or that is even the the highest level game in town when it comes to US defence equipment.
