    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - At least two U.S. government civilian satellites were interfered with four or more times in 2007 and 2008 via a ground station in Norway, and China's military is a prime suspect, a draft of a report to Congress said.

    The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, which reported the interference, said it was "consistent with PLA doctrine," Larry Wortzel, one of the 12 commissioners, told Reuters on Friday. PLA is short for China's People's Liberation Army.

    The satellites were interfered via ground station in Norway, but China becomes the key suspect.

    There has to be army of moles working inside US for this to make possible. As alarming it is, worst thing would be military satellite codes or encryption methods leaked to PRC.

    This is not new for China. They are very keen about the U.S.
