US Soldier Arrested: Sells Military Secrets to China

In a significant development, a US Army intelligence analyst, Sergeant Korbein Schultz, was apprehended on Thursday on charges of allegedly divulging national defense information to a foreign entity, with press reports indicating China as the recipient. The arrest took place at Fort Campbell, a military base straddling the Kentucky-Tennessee border, where Schultz, holding a top-secret security clearance, was stationed.

The Justice Department, in a statement, did not explicitly name the country Schultz was accused of supplying sensitive military information to, but sources pointed to China. According to the indictment, Schultz, starting from June 2022, furnished a contact in Hong Kong with a variety of classified materials, including documents, maps, and photographs pertaining to US national defense.

In return for the information provided, Schultz purportedly received a total of $42,000. The Justice Department highlighted that the compromised data encompassed details about potential US strategies in the event of a military threat to Taiwan. Additionally, it involved documents related to fighter aircraft, helicopters, hypersonic equipment, the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), and studies about both US and Chinese military capabilities.

This arrest closely follows the detention of two US Navy sailors in California on charges of espionage for China. Petty officer Wenheng Zhao, who pleaded guilty to conspiring with a foreign intelligence officer and accepting a bribe, was sentenced to 27 months in prison in January. Zhao and another US sailor, Jinchao Wei, were arrested in August as part of an unfolding narrative of military personnel being implicated in espionage activities for foreign nations.
