The Scientist and the Spy: The FBI and the US-China Technological Battle, Mara Hvistendahl, Poynter Fellow

  • 12:00PM to 1:30PM
  • SLB Room 121

What began as a simple trespassing inquiry mushroomed into a two-year FBI operation in which investigators bugged Mo's rental cars, used a warrant intended for foreign terrorists and spies, and flew surveillance planes over corn country—all in the name of protecting the trade secrets of corporate giants Monsanto and DuPont Pioneer.
