China's real-life spy games have had a darker denouement, according to a New York Times article Sunday alleging that authorities killed or jailed up to 20 people for spying on behalf of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.In April last year, China passed a law placing strict restrictions on foreign NGOs, which are often accused by Beijing of trying to subvert the state and portrayed in Chinese media as fronts for U.S. intelligence operations.U.S. spying on China is not a one-way street.In 1985, former spymaster Yu Qiangsheng gave the U.S. government its first major intelligence victory against Beijing when he handed over information that led to the conviction of CIA analyst Larry Wu-Tai Chin on charges of spying for China for decades.In early 2012, China arrested a top U.S. informant who had likely revealed the "names of numerous Chinese agents," Major said.He added that the informant, a former aide to one of China's top security officials, may have also turned over 56 Taiwanese nationals working for Beijing.
