Pentagon Can't Find Top Secret 'Pivot to Asia' Papers Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Mar 13, 2014, 07:51 PM

The US Armed Forces had been drawing up a confidential Top Secret 'Pivot to Asia' military strategy along with their counterparts in South Korea. Nevertheless, a low-level civilian contractor, was arrested for bringing those documents to his home where he had a live-in Chinese girlfriend.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "A former civilian defense contractor in Hawaii on Thursday pleaded guilty to charges he divulged military secrets to his Chinese girlfriend and kept classified documents at his suburban Honolulu home. Benjamin Bishop, 60, told the court he mentioned a classified conference between U.S. and South Korean officials while responding to an email from the 28-year-old girlfriend."

Bishop was provided top security clearance to read and review the US 'Pivot to Asia' documents.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "He admitted to keeping classified documents at his home, including ones outlining the U.S. Pentagon's China strategy and the U.S. military's force posture in Asia and the Pacific. He told U.S. Magistrate Judge Kevin Chang he didn't show the documents to anyone, but they shouldn't have been at his house."

Bishop was employed as a computer hacker for the U.S. Pacific Command headquarters.
