WASHINGTON, May 24 -- Nationally syndicated television newsmagazine American Investigator has uncovered a "secret" memo from Attorney Janet Reno to FBI Director Louis J. Freeh indicating that the Justice Department and the FBI consider China to be among the nations posing the most serious threat to U.S. national security. The classified document contained the "National Security List" of countries that are considered hostile to US interests and are engaged in "espionage" against the U.S. The document was the source for the Washington Times headline in the May 24 edition.
