Spying For Me, But Not For Thee

US Indicts Chinese Hackers for Stealing Information on Trade Negotiations
Will be interesting to follow the cognitive dissonance over this latest spotlight on hypocritical US spying policy.
"I in no way mean to minimize the impact of this spying on USS and USW. I also suspect they were targeted because the two organizations partner together on an increasingly successful manufacturing organization.Which would still constitute a fair spying target, but also one against which China has acute interests. But that still doesn't make it different from what the US does when it engages in spearphishing — or worse — to steal information to help us in trade negotiations or disputes. We've just criminalized something the NSA does all the time."

It's ok for the NSA to do it of course.
