Benjamin Bishop: The spy who loved her

| March 12, 2014


Associated Press reports that 60-year-old Reservist LTC Benjamin Bishop may plead guilty to succumbing to the wiles of his 27-year-old Chinese girlfriend and sending her classified defense information;

A document for the plea agreement filed Tuesday said Bishop emailed his girlfriend classified information on joint training and planning sessions between the U.S. and South Korea.

It said Bishop had classified documents at his Hawaii home, including one titled “U.S. Department of Defense China Strategy,” another on U.S. force posture in Asia and the Pacific and a U.S. Pacific Command joint intelligence operations center special report.

An FBI affidavit last year alleged the then-59-year-old gave his 27-year-old girlfriend classified information about war plans, nuclear weapons, missile defenses and other topics.

Bervar has said the two were in love and that the case was about love, not espionage.

Yeah, well, I’ll admit that I have a thing for Asian chicks, too, but I never had one ask me to email her classified documents. And if a woman 30 years younger than me started hanging on me, I’d suspect that something is up. It’s just nature. Anyway, I’m sure he’ll find true love now. With his cell mate. I hope it was worth it for him.

    I hear ya on the asian chick thing, Jonn. I really believed that one in Olongopo who told me she would love me long time if I would pay her bar fine.

      Another case of the dreaded Yellow Fever.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      As the husband of a hot Asian chick, I can attest to the fact that they do seem to possess a special unique brand of womanly wiles. Not necessarily superior to other flavors, but unique and potentially hazardous to the uninitiated. Stil no excuse for treason, as I happen to know that Hawaii is literally packed with gorgeous exotic females who won’t ask you to compromise national security, so it ain’t like he was suffering from a lack of options.

      As for the bullshit “love” defense, I find it hard to believe that she was using the oldest espionage tactic known to man on this idiot because she “was so in love with him.” Call me cynical…

      I don’t know if the fact that he did it for the poontang makes it better or worse.

      • Ex-PH2© says:

        Cynical? You, too? Please! This clanker probably couldn’t get himself a date unless he paid for it, anywhere he went. And it isn’t because he’s unattractive, it’s because he probably has one of those idiot personalities that have him watching while everyone else is dancing.

        That’s not cynical, it’s reality.

  2. NHSparky says:

    Hmmmm…met her at a conference of defense wonks. Check.

    Thirty year age difference. Check.

    Extramarital affair. Check.

    E-mails classified stuff for the asking. Check.

    Seems legit!

  3. Sparks says:

    Yea well I remember the lovely Asian girls too. One particular Thai gal named Nit Noi. Real looker when I was there way back when. But she never asked me for anything except…money. That was the only kind of paper she was interested in. She got way too much of mine I might add.

    “Bervar has said the two were in love and that the case was about love, not espionage.”

    Well, there you go. Isn’t that just special…”love is a many splendored thing”. It was all just love and not espionage. So we should just let him slide for the “love” factor of being and old dude taken in by a lovely, young Chinese gal. Yea, right. Throw him under the jail. My only hope. If he ever did meet her and you know…did it. I hope he got a scorching case of the clap out of it.

    • Bobo says:

      At least I waited until after I married my wife until I started feeding her classified documents (just kidding, you guys doing the 5 year reinvestigation keep moving on).

      • Sparks says:

        Bobo, you’ve done it now man. Your wife! I gotta call the investigative services. I mean I just gotta.

        (That is if I could remember anything about intelligence in the military besides S2 and OSI) Have a good day Bobo. 😀 😀 😀 Your bud…Sparks

        • Sparks says:

          You know I’m kidding here right Bobo? I’d never rat out another good soldier. 😀 Not even for a cute Chinese girl.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      If she got it from him, that works too. A little poetic justice goes a long way. Does anybody know if the skank is in custody too, or did she get away?

  4. Bobo says:

    Aasshats like him are the reason why the Army makes me sit through a few hours of SETA training every year.

    • Sparks says:

      Bobo you’re right. Don’t punish the few offenders, punish everyone instead!

      Started when I was leaving service in the mid 70s. Anything anti PC that happened and we were all in mandatory “Race Relations” classes for three WHOLE days. Learning where all the “bad” words came from and why we shouldn’t use them. Well, all except for the bad words used about and against white troops. That was the first time I was “informed in no uncertain terms” that as a white man I could NOT be discriminated against or experience racism. It only got worse after that as I hear guys tell me. Hope it is better these days.

      • NHSparky says:

        It’s not. Just replace one little special snowflake group with another, shuffle around the word salad a bit, but it’s still the same bullshit.

  5. Just An Old Dog says:

    I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but But when the linr goes from “buy me drinkee” to “show me SSBN deployment schedule” something has went sour in the relationship

    • Sparks says:

      Here-Here Just An Old Dog. Ya think! How did she make that leap and he buy into it? He must have been a pathetically lonely, loser guy to get himself into that mess. Much less believe her to that point. I mean for goodness sakes…she is a Chinese and asking for classified stuff! How dumb, blinded in “love” do you have to be to fall for that?

      • Sparks says:

        I went my WHOLE Air Force service in the SAC Titan II Missile silos of northern Arkansas. Communications with a TS/Crypto clearance. Never ONCE did I speak a WORD of what I did to my own wife! Much less anyone else.

        But on an almost yearly basis some dip would get arrested for talking in a local bar to who…you guessed it…an undercover FBI or OSI agent, testing their resolve and ability to hold their liquor. Dumb asses. Then there would be MORE of the mandatory security clearance briefing classes on what to and not to say…which was…NOTHING AT ALL EVER TO ANYONE!

        • Ex-PH2© says:

          Geez, Sparks, I did not know you had to be a drunk to qualify for classified work.

          I spent one entire evening at a Star Trek convention getting stinking sloshed and closed down the bar, and the entire time, I kept flashing my STF ID that I made up for the occasion and telling everyone I was attached to a Class 451-A frigate waiting in orbit for me to return.

          Not once did I ever tell anyone I was a mere human from Earth. And I shut down that damn bar, too.

          • Sparks says:

            Ex you’re my gal. A real Navy woman! Now, I can hold mine but I would not want to go drink for drink with you! Not if loser paid anyway! 😀

            I think I would be under the table, one eye barely open, with my chin on the stool foot rest and a bartender going through my wallet for the tab!

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            DAMN, YOU’RE GOOD!!

  6. HS Sophomore says:

    Nah, this guy should clemency. No man alive can resist Asian girls.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Aha! So you HAVE met my wife!

      All jokes aside, paying for her shit is one thing. Hell, I once spent several months paying a hot blonde’s rent for her, and never got so much as a handjob for my trouble. And that bitch did NOT live within my means! Lust makes a man do some dumb shit. But I sure as hell wouldn’t have committed so much as a moving violation on her behalf.

      This dickhead, on the other hand, pulled a stunt that would have Forrest Gump, I Am Sam, Rain Man, and Derek Zoolander agreeing, “Now that’s just plain STUPID!”

      (Regarding the hot blonde’s rent and complete lack of sexual recompense, what can I say? One way or another, you always pay for your education. May you learn from my mistakes, young one.)

      • Hondo says:

        The Other Whitey: a wise man learns from both his and others’ mistakes. Most people learn only from their own. And fools often don’t learn even from their own gaffes.

      • HS Sophomore says:

        Point taken. All payment will be demanded up front 😀

        • NHSparky says:

          HS Soph–you might be a bit young to remember this, but I’m sure it’s on YouTube somewhere.

          The principle involved is similar to that which Chris Rock explained when he said, “There is NO SEX in the Champagne Room.”

      • Sparks says:

        The Other Whitey…I feel ya my man. But you have to admit, you’re (we’re) a wiser, smarter man for it today. Don’t feel too bad though. I have been there and done it too. Dinner, movie, candy, flowers, opened doors, pulled out chairs and carried coats, the whole nine yards and then some. THEN not so much as a fare thee well when I got her to her door…on three different dates with her no less! How dumb is that for not learning the first time out! Can I say it now…after all these years…Bitch!

        • The Other Whitey says:

          Very true, Sparks. I am wiser, smarter, and significantly poorer for the experience–her neighborhood had some pretty high property values. Like $34K poorer when it was all said and done. Not all at once, of course. She “needed help” for a month. And another month. And another. And another. Until I finally woke up one morning and had an epiphany: I’m a fucking idiot! Her POV was that it was my own fault for being a sucker. Bloodsucking skank or not, it’s hard to fault her logic. Her integrity is another story.

          It would have been nice to get either reimbursement or return on investment. I was hoping for both. I’d have settled for one or the other. I got neither. Fuck that bitch.

    • David says:

      let’s hope this isn’t a dupe, my first post was kicked back!

      Asian girls are subject to the same range of extremes as any others – pretty, ugly, skinny, stacked, nice, bitchy… I work in a large Asian company and have seen all the variations. They age, too, just like anyone else (although they typically watch their weight better than average Americans.) Hit a Korean titty bar sometime, and see what a raddled fishwife that curvy young thing turns into. Resist ’em? Easily… then again, I also agree with the fella who said “the hell with 72 virgins, give me a coupla older ones who know what they’re doing!”.

      Oh yeah, in most Asian cultures the non-hookers are typically very conservative sexually… I remember a Taiwanese girl who once confided that she was considered a bit racy because she went to bed with her boyfriend only two years after they started dating.

      • The Other Whitey says:

        It’s been my experience that 99% of Asian girls fall into one of two categories: “butt-ass fugly” (example Margaret Cho) and “off-the-charts hot” (examples: my wife, Jamie Chung, Grace Park, Kelly Hu, Michelle Malkin, Aiko Tanaka), with very few in between. They’re kind of like redheads that way.

      • Sparks says:

        David how right you are. When I was over there I saw all shapes, sizes and looks. Some were Playboy material…some…could draw a blister in the bottom of a galvanized shit pot ugly. But all of them wanted one thing…”you take me Merica with you” “you take me Merica you”?

      • Sparks says:

        TWO YEARS! Man was that guy carrying a case of blue balls or what!

  7. CBSenior says:

    No it was not about LOVE dickhead. If it were about love she would not be asking for Classified Info. Fucknuts is still tooooooooooooooooooo stupid to figure it out.

    • Ex-PH2© says:

      Do you think she sends him flowers these days?

      • The Other Whitey says:

        At least the Russians would’ve had the decency to set him up up with a shitty studio and and low-rent hookers to keep him entertained while drank himself to death with cheap spiked booze.

        The Chinese just said, “Adios, motherfucker,” and left him hanging. What a bunch of dicks!

        • HS Sophomore says:

          I’ve always wondered what we do with our agents who get their covers blown and have to get out fast and settle here. Do you think there’s some gated community in some lovely part of the country where all of them settle down together, or do they get a pension, or what?

          • Sparks says:

            Yes there is HS Sophomore. It’s called San Francisco in the winter, Tuscon in the summer. 😀

  8. Kinda old ET1 says:

    “In love”? Riiiiiight…
    Enjoy jail dumbass.

  9. Combat Historian says:

    I did a CO-TTAD tour at PACOM HQs in Honolulu during 08-09 after I returned from Iraq; I probably passed him numerous times in the hallways within the Big Pagoda. Sure wish I had the clairvoyance back then to warn him away from the CHICOM poontang, but hey that’s his problem now…

  10. OWB says:

    We have all been in love (or at least in lust) a time or three, and done a few things of questionable intelligence as a result. Pretty sure that not one of us considered the transmission of classified materials in the process.

    This fool seriously needs to redefine his understanding of “love!” Well, yeah, he may soon have that opportunity.

  11. David says:

    Geez, has the entire officer corps started thinking exclusively with their dicks? Lately it seems like there is nothing but sexual assault stories, harassment stories, or dumb shit like this. Christ, guys, LEARN FROM YOUR NCOs. Anyone telling them “gee, but she’s different from the rest” is gonna get horselaughed into next week.

    • Ex-PH2© says:

      ‘thinking with their dicks’ – Uh, yes.

      I see no difference between now and the 1960s. Same things, just more widely discussed.

  12. Just An Old Dog says:

    I would be the perfect bait to catch these spies. All I would have to do is just work in a high security area.
    Any female who looked semi decent under the age of 35 that so much as said hello to my ugy old ass would be a spy,

  13. Roger in Republic says:

    Fell for the Honey Trap Eh? hell that one is mentioned in the Bible. The Honey Trap is the “Nigerian Email scam” of espionage. This guy must have lived a very sheltered life. Every BM-3 knows that money for sex is normal but Secrets for sex treason. Wall, blindfold, rifle fire.

  14. Valkyrie says:

    I always ask my lover to send me classified defense documents instead of flowers. It’s just sexier. And to get me really hot just recite nuclear weapon codes to me. Yeah baby that’s hot!

    • Hondo says:

      Well, Valkyrie, OK:

      U235 + n –> FP(varies) + ~2n + ~200MeV(prompt+delayed)

      Pu239 + n –> FP(varies) + ~2+n + ~207MeV(prompt+delayed)

      D + T –> He-4 + n + 17.588 MeV

      D + D –> He-3 + n + 3.268 MeV

      D + D –> T + p + 4.03 MeV

      He-3 + D –> He-4 + p + 18.34 MeV

      Li-6 + n –> T + He-4 + 4.78 MeV

      Li-7 + n -> T + He-4 + n – 2.47 MeV

      Sources: Wikipedia and – yeah, I had to look them up. (smile)

    STUPIDASSEDCOCKHEADEDSHITFORBRAINSMOTHERFUCKER!! He fell for THE OLDEST trick in the book, the “Pussy-trap” or “Honey Trap” as told about in retired KGB General Oleg Kalugin’s book “The First Directorate” where he explained how he and his colleagues had traps like that ready to blackmail US and NATO Diplomatic and military personnel into their control! Now here he/it is, facing at least life in prison because he had a case of “Clintonitis”, of which the main symptom of is “Thinking with one’s genitals” to keep it polite, and she led him to his doom by his pathetically small prick!!

    • Toasty Coastie©™ says:

      Butbutbut Proud Infidel genitals are magical, mysterious places of wonder…How could he not get sucked in?

  16. ConcernedCitizen says:

    C’mon, even the damn TARP online training uses hot Asian girlfriends as a example scenario of things to look out for.

    I’m Chinese, used to joke along the lines of “Hell, *I* wouldn’t trust me,” but only with my closest battle buddies. Last thing I’d ever need would be some eager folks in MI company thinking I’d ever be smart or important enough to be another Harold J Nicholson.
