None Dare Call It Espionage
There is no mention of espionage by any of the parties concerned which is of course a much more serious crime and punishable by life in prison or even death.
Keyser was trained in and exposed to the highest levels of American foreign policy for over thirty years. He analyzed Chinese, Japanese, American political affairs and had access to top secret classified materials -- which he stole for twelve years -- and passed materials to foreign agents of a country that the USA has no official relations with. It is hard to believe that this is not considered espionage. It is hard to believe that his actions resulted in no damage to USA national security.
So why is Taiwan's top spy being let off the hook? Will Americans ever know whether Don Keyser compromised or damaged American interests in East Asia? Or after he is sentenced on February 26 will the whole business be swept under a rug and forgotten?

American guns in the hands of city, state, and federal police, National Guardsmen, and military troops have shot at American crowds throughout its history.
The most recent direct comparison to the police action last week in China is the so-called "Memorial Day Massacre" of 1937 outside Chicago.
A large group of steelworkers on strike marched to a steel mill and confronted police. The police claimed self-defense against the mob and fired on the crowd. Five protesters died at the scene and as many more afterward. Most were shot in the back as they ran from the police.
The last time a protest led to government gunfire in the USA was at Kent State University in 1970 when jittery National Guardsmen fired on university students after three days of protest against the Vietnam war.
Last week, overwhelmed provincial police of Shanwei county, Guangdong, fired their guns at protesters, mostly rural residents of Dongzhou village shortchanged by local officials in a pay out for land taken in eminent domain for a power plant. The villagers began their protest in late October.
