(AP) "The lawsuit accuses Cisco of aggressively marketing and customizing its products for the system, known as the Golden Shield Project, with the understanding that the technology would be used for spying on dissident groups such as the Falun Gong. By using Cisco equipment, the lawsuit said, government officials were able to monitor dissidents' activities, including online meetings of Falun Gong congregations. The lawsuit said some dissidents were detained, tortured and even killed as a result; others disappeared.
The lawsuit also names Cisco's top executives, including CEO John Chambers."
Cisco CEO John Chambers was one of the elite business leaders who met with Obama about the economy. He strongly urged a tax break for companies that outsource to third world countries. Oracle's President, another attendee of this meeting and strong Obama supporter, also wanted to make outsourcing more profitable.
"One trillion dollars is roughly the amount of earnings that American companies have in their foreign operations—and that they could repatriate to the United States. That money, in turn, could be invested in U.S. jobs, capital assets, research and development, and more," Oracle President Safra Catz wrote in Rupert Murdoch's WSJ.
Cisco profited enormously from Obama's stimulus package. Shares rose 8.2% just when it was announced. Does this mean Obama was directly funding torture and oppression in China through Cisco? Why yes it does. This explains why there have been zero investigations or prosecutions into Cisco and other abettors of Communist torture.
But crime doesn't pay. Cisco has performed very poor lately and Chambers is expected to step down in shame.
