The CIA had no comment Saturday on a Washington Post report that military officers in CHINA had removed 27 listening devices from a Boeing 767-300 delivered to President Jiang Zemin in August after it was refitted in Texas. The Chinese allege that the U.S. planted the BUGS, described as highly sophisticated devices capable of being activated by satellite. The Chinese paid $150 million for the now grounded airliner, which was intended to be Jiang's PERSONAL AIRCRAFT. The report promises to complicate U.S.-China relations as Jiang and President Bush prepare for a SUMMIT, scheduled for Feb. 21, in Beijing.
