Ex-CIA Chief Accuses Huawei of Spying for China

Ex-CIA Chief Accuses Huawei of Spying for China

The blame game on a global scenario can sometimes get quite ugly. Reputations are destroyed and the finger pointing may lead to negative emotions and bad vibes. Take the case of Michael Hayden, ex-CIA chief and previous head of the NSA. The man has a lot of experience on his side and his word carries weight. Yet Hayden has caused a scene by saying that Huawei is guilty of spying for the Chinese government.

In fact, he offhandedly spoke of how it was pretty obvious and didn’t need any going into. Furthermore, the hurtful remarks come at a moment in time when Huawei was trying to build its market presence in the “Land Down Under” or Australia. Hayden even said that he had evidence of this human rights crime that Huawei, the second largest global telecom company, had committed.

The officials at Huawei have bitterly responded to the sarcastic statement by Hayden. They claim that Huawei is a trusted company and that the defamatory comments made by Hayden were unsubstantiated. They were a means of distracting the global population from some real concerns regarding espionage. Huawei Global Cyber Security Officer John Suffolk emailed his statement to Reuters . The message to Hayden from Huawei was straightforward enough: put your money where your mouth is or shut your trap.

Meanwhile, authorities in the UK were looking into the matter. They wanted to investigate the issue further. Australian authorities have also put things on hold after the nasty affair. Besides Huawei, another Chinese handset manufacturer named ZTE has faced a similar smear campaign.
