Tribune Review-Ridge Archives

Ridge

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, the nation's first Homeland Security chief, told the Tribune-Review on Tuesday that he considers the recent federal indictment of five Chinese military hackers to be merely a publicity stunt.

U.S. Attorney David Hickton, Western Pennsylvania's top federal prosecutor, joined U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder last month in Washington to announce charges accusing the hackers of stealing trade secrets from U.S. companies, including several in the Pittsburgh area and the United Steelworkers union.

“I frankly thought indicting five Chinese military officers was a public relations stunt,” Ridge said after a fundraising event Downtown for his archives at Mercyhurst University in Erie.
