This is an important story.
It should have been a page A1 story in the print edition of the Washington Post.
Yet it did not make the print edition at all.
Instead there was a brief story in its on line edition,
in its weblog "Power Post", written by Elise Viebeck.
That weblog entry, in its entirety:
Chinese and Russian spy agencies are using hacked U.S. data
to identify American intelligence officers and agents.
“At least one clandestine network of American engineers and scientists
who provide technical assistance to U.S. undercover operatives and agents overseas
has been compromised as a result, according to two U.S. officials,”
the Los Angeles Times reports.
“Counterintelligence officials say their adversaries combine those immense data files
and then employ sophisticated software to try to isolate disparate clues
that can be used to identify and track —
or worse, blackmail and recruit —
U.S. intelligence operatives.”
A very pale shadow of the much fuller Washington Times story.

Whose interests are Martin Baron serving by not printing this story?
Certainly not the interests of the United States of America.
