* The Times has had the Wen Ho Lee story on the front pages and also the editorial pages during the past year. But this new revelation is an eye-opener (“Lee Reveals Connection to Taiwan,” Dec. 24). Lee received “consulting fees” that he did not reveal, as required by law. Why not? The most striking sentence is that he “adamantly denies passing any classified information to any foreign government.”
In the age of Clinton-speak, that could be true. But did he pass classified information to other people or entities who in fact did give this important research to “any foreign government”? The Times’ readers have been briefed by Robert Scheer on the Commentary page, and his conclusion is that Lee is innocent of these evil and false charges. Maybe Scheer and his followers need to reevaluate this situation.
