    Taiwan Born Naval Officer Charged With Espionage


    [​IMG]


    A U.S. Naval officer who has been charged with espionage has been identified as Lt. Cmdr. Edward C. Lin, a Taiwanese-born flight officer assigned to a Naval reconnaissance unit. Lin was arrested eight months ago but his case did not become public until a pre-trial hearing this past Friday that will determine whether he will face a court martial.

    Lin is currently assigned to Commander Patrol and Reconnaissance Group, a maritime patrol and reconnaissance unit in Norfolk that provides airborne anti-submarine warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance using P-8A Poseidon aircraft, P-3 Orion aircraft and MQ-4 unmanned aircraft.

    A U.S. official has told ABC News that Lin was arrested approximately eight months ago at an airport in the U.S. Pacific Command region while bound for a foreign country.

    A 2008 Navy News a rticle profiled Lin's naturalization ceremony when he became a U.S. citizen. Lin had been asked to speak at the ceremony and he described how he had emigrated to the U.S. from Taiwan at the age of 14.

    I wonder how many people here would become loyal Taiwanese just because they moved there when they were 14. Naturalized citizen just 8 years ago and already a Lt. Commander. That's a commission and 3 promotions in 8 years, assuming they don't commission non-citizens as officers already. It's almost like someone needed to fill an affirmative action slot quickly for appearances.
