#1 Has a top Chinese official defected to the US with Wuhan lab secrets? Rumors swirl vice minister of State Security fled Beijing in February with information that sparked Biden u-turn on COVID origins

#2 Would make a great Jeff Abbott or David Morrell story. How does one intelligence agency protect a defector from the other agencies?

#3 How can we know if this is true, or a disinformation program?
Why do we know about it at all?

#4 Buried the lede:

In addition, Dong has provided DIA with the following information:

Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2

Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the US and the world

Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research

Plus:

Names of US citizens who provide intel to China

Financial records showing US businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government

#5 Suspect. A man in 'spy catching' knows all about defectors and double and triple sided tale tattlers and plants and traps. If China wanted to plant a disinformation source it'd be him. And he would have to come with verifiable data, mostly on his American counterparts, which could be confirmed with only a slight digging. His China info will remain unverifiable and might even contain overestimation of Chinese 'special weapons systems'.

While Biden's administration plays 'hide the Dong' with him, he will help you dismantle your own networks in east Asia, forcing you to start from scratch. But to the Chinese players you can't do anything, not for biowarfare, not for spying, nothing.

Assuming of course any of this is true.

#6 ^ That's why I didn't even bother to read it.

#7 I'm glad I'm not the only one getting a strange feeling.

#8 #5 But how do you make deputy minister of security to throw away his life to implement such a program of deception, Dron?
I think, we have here a looser in internal power struggle who had to flee for his life, and trying to buy sanctuary - doesn't mean his info is 100% reliable.

#9 What is telling for me is that he chose the DIA, and they insulated him from CIA, FBI, State, DoJ DHS and the rest of the alphabet soup agencies. If he is authentic, it would make sense if those agencies are deeply penetrated/compromised, and he wanted to get away from immediate visibility. It also supports my own sense that the DIA animus that goes back to Flynn and Obama, and the massive silencing job they did on him was because he knew things at DIA that were very very damaging. If he is a false flag deep disinformation agent, wouldn't he be more interested in the deeper effects that would have across the wider spectrum of the 17 intel agencies instead of the narrow focus of the DIA? It is a wilderness of mirrors and the risk of an James Jesus Angleton massacre is possible, but while this is highly visible now, it also may be a gift to reveal how deep the rot has gone. Who knows what internal CCP politics may have prompted his defection?

#10 Who knows what internal CCP politics may have prompted his defection?

Maybe this: Corruption is rife in China’s state-directed economy, and it may have washed up on Dong. “He worked closely with Zhang Yue, who's now serving 15 years imprisonment for corruption," Dr. Han said. “Zhang was a confidant of Ma Jian, former MSS executive vice minister, who is also in prison for corruption.”
