Subject: CIA funds anonymous web surfing

Today's Boston Globe and New York Times report that the CIA is
funding Sefeweb technology that lets users surf the Web anonymously.
The parent agency of the Voice of America is negotiating a license
for the technology to use in bypassing China's 'Net censorship.

"The US-funded network of proxy servers running Triangle Boy would
provide a ''dynamic, constantly changing set of access points through
which Internet surfers in China can connect to VOA and to other Web
sites that are typically blocked,' Hsu [Safeweb CEO] said."


So if a U.S. citizen working as a programmer on this project visits
China to deliver a paper at a conference and is arrested for
conspiracy to violate China's laws, will the U.S. consider the arrest
and subsequent prosecution a legitimate expression of Chinese
