"What utter garbage. We should be sharing any information we learn with the entire world, they shouldn't have to hack us to get it."
We do share it. We share it all over the world. It's not about sharing, it's about skirting the rules of sharing. Why should China get something before everyone else? If there is data that isn't ready to share because it may not be validated, China may get it and run with it. Or, they may attack America from the data we have that wasn't even meant to be shared because it's not ready.
Put it this way, if China were to get something that American scientists were working on and discovered it actually kills people if they go down that road, China may get it and see some things they can do to make it better but still kill people while they test it...should they be allowed?
See, your point is valid. There may be stuff we are hiding. All evidence shows that we share with other countries and they share with us but your hate immediately just assumes we are keeping everything we have from the world. We may be hiding, but there are a multitude of other problems that come up if someone starts hacking data that isn't ready to share. Not to mention there are regulations of what can be shared to not give up sensitive, identifying information. You know...the same regulations that you curse at Trump for removing from our agencies. So now you are mad that those regulations prevent sharing of data that may not be ready to share. Try to be objective first and hate later. I know that's a lot to ask for a DR Lib but hope has to stay alive if we are to improve.
