【视频】FBI拍片提醒美国留学生勿做“无间道”

美国FBI(联邦调查局)以真实个案摄制一部宣传纪录片,提醒到外地升学的美国学生,切勿被利诱成为中国的“无间道”。

宣传片长约30分钟,以上海为背景,本周在YouTube已有超过3万个点阅。中方官方新华网则反驳说:“美国才是真正的’情报大国‘,FBI曾计划招揽旅美的中国留学生,意图不言自明。” 在题为《卒子的游戏》纪录片中,FBI以2011年承认间谍罪﹑正在弗吉尼亚州联邦监狱服刑的美国学生施赖弗(Glenn Duffie Shriver)为例子,提醒到中国学习语言的留学生,出国前先看看该片,要有所警觉。

英文对话原文请看文章最后面,可以自己用谷歌翻译对照视频看。

片段中,施赖弗到上海学习中文,被酒、色、财、气,与五光十色的上海夜生活吸引。期间,施赖弗被一则广告吸引,中国政府愿付每篇120美元,撰写美中关系的论文。施赖弗之后与招聘人Amanda接头,Amanda并带他进入高级酒店,再分别认识上司唐先生及吴先生。中方愿意“无条件”提供奖学金予施赖弗,希望施赖弗为中美关系的良好发展作出贡献,但金钱资助要“保密”。

接头女子Amanda每月与施赖弗见一次,还提议介绍中国女朋友认识。片中,施赖弗曾在上海报考美国国务院的公务员入职试,但两次都失败。中方人员则鼓励他再试,可以投考美国中央情报局CIA的工作。Amanda与唐先生的上司吴先生,在施赖弗决定报考CIA后,还给了4万美元现金作为鼓励。

片段中,年青的施赖弗内心挣扎,为求考进美国国务院及CIA,考试中违背良心。在问卷中,否认“接受外国政府资助”,及“受外国政府指派”来考试等。施赖弗担心露出马脚,飞回美国接受CIA首轮测谎途中,向考官表示不投考了。离开中情局后,施赖弗随即购买机票离开美国,飞机尚未起飞,就在座位上被探员带上手铐。

宣传片最后,有施赖弗的真人自述,指“如果有人给你钱,似乎你不必做任何事,那这很可能就有个陷阱,只是你没看见”。FBI在官网则以此提醒学生,外国情报官员不会揭露自己身分,对于条件太优厚的赚钱机会存疑。 大陆官方新华网周四则反驳,美国才是真正的“情报大国”。

早在2003年就爆出,FBI计划在美国的大学里招募中国留学生。2013年,美国加利福尼亚州FBI希望招聘更多华人加入,并宣称懂中文者将得到更好的待遇。事件显示了美方对中国这一情报领域“假想敌”的忧虑。美国传媒习惯炒作“中国间谍”事件,以迎合美国的舆论。 资料显示,现年31岁的施赖弗,虽然未能在美国政府任职,也未能接触任何敏感资讯,但仍遭到逮捕,期间共收取中方7万美元的支助。2010年,他承认计画向中国情报人员提供国防资讯,换取减刑,入狱48个月。 (来源:自由亚洲电台)

Video Transcript 英文对话原文:

Narrator: There is an old Chinese proverb–“Life is like a game of chess, changing with each move. And to win the game you must often sacrifice your pawns.”

Glenn Duffie Shriver: Since my first Spanish class in middle school, I never met a language I didn’t like. Spanish, French, Mandarin—I loved them all.

Junior year in college, I got to live the dream, a year abroad in Shanghai studying language and philosophy. What’s up, dog? [Speaking Chinese] It was going to be the best year of my life.

Shanghai was amazing. It fit me like a glove. I loved everything about it—the language, the culture, the nightlife, the people.

Friend: [Speaking Chinese] Yeah, she’s sweet.

Shriver: Yeah.

Friend: Fear not, my fair-weather friend. I have the credit card.

Shriver: Oh, your folks’ credit card.

Friend: It’s for emergencies, and I do believe this qualifies. Awesome! Besides, it’s my going away party.

Shriver: Whoa. What are you talking about?

Friend: I’m headed home after the break.

Shriver: You’re kidding me.

Friend: Dream’s over man, time to face the real world.

Shriver: This is the real world. I’m staying.

Friend: What are you going to do?

Shriver: Get a job.

Friend: No one is going to hire you. You’ve got to have the right visa.

Shriver: Sorry, man.

Friend: No. The right visa!

Shriver: So there it was my dilemma. To stay in Shanghai, I needed a visa and a job. Then one morning, I spotted an online ad. The Shanghai government was looking for American students to write papers on Chinese-American relations. That’s how I met Amanda.

Amanda: Hi, Glenn.

Shriver: Yes, Amanda. Nice to meet you. Thanks for having me.

Amanda: Thank you very much for coming. So how do you think the average American views China today?

Shriver: I think China is an enigma to many in our country. There are some who view China with suspicion, even fear, over the way you control your currency and your people, and quite frankly your fantastic economic growth.

Amanda: Well, what do you think?

Shriver: It’s complicated, but I found the people here to be remarkably free, and there is a fantastic entrepreneurial class emerging.

Amanda: You are a very thoughtful and candid young man, qualities I admire. We want to make Shanghai the business center of the world. We want Americans to think of Shanghai first when they expand to China. To do that we need to know how westerners perceive us as a country and as a city.

Shriver: So you want me to write about the business climate here?

Amanda: First, something political. Use your judgment.

Shriver: O.K. Cool.

I wrote a paper about the tensions between China and the United States over North Korea’s nuclear program. I was honest but took a neutral tone. Thank you, spell check.

I still can’t believe you’re leaving, man. You should be writing papers for these guys.

Friend: Why? What are they going to do with them?

Shriver: Uh, who cares? It’s just an essay. [Sighs] As long as they pay.

And pay they did. I wrote a number of papers and each time, Amanda paid me in cash.

Thanks.

Then she invited me to meet her supervisor Mr. Tang in a fancy downtown hotel.

Mr. Tang: So this is the bright young man I’ve heard so much about. Glad to meet you, Mr. Shriver.

Shriver: Please call me Glenn.

Tang: OK, Glenn. What impressed me most about your paper, Glenn, was your insight into the Chinese mind. Most westerners make no attempt to truly understand us.

Shriver: Most westerners have never lived here.

Tang: True. It is the destiny of our two countries to stand together as partners and bring peace and prosperity to the world. My generation has made tremendous strides towards this goal, but now it is up to people like you, the future leaders of the world, to bring this process to fruition. That’s why we would like to help you with your education.

Shriver: You want to help me?

Tang: Yes. We know that Shanghai is a very expensive city. We would like to help you by giving you a stipend.

Shriver: A stipend?

Tang: Yes. A quarterly sum to help you with your expenses while you remain in the country.

Shriver: Do you want me to write more papers?

Tang: Perhaps. We mainly want you to focus on your studies. Consider it a…[speaking Chinese]…a scholarship. Yes, a scholarship. Your country helps promising students, yes? We do the same thing. Will you allow us to help you?

Shriver: Well, yes. Thank you.

Tang: Excellent. Please let’s keep this arrangement confidential. We don’t want to be flooded with requests.

Shriver: I understand. (Chinese phrase)

Tang: (Chinese phrase)

Shriver: It was $2,500.I was stunned, but what was I going to do, give it back? It was free money, no strings attached. I met with Amanda every couple weeks after that. We became good friends, talked about everything: life, love, politics.

Amanda: You are lucky Shanghai is a big city, or I’m afraid you’d run out of girlfriends.

Shriver: Oh, thanks a lot. I’m not that bad.

Amanda: So how is school going?

Shriver: [Sighs] It’s hard, but I’m loving it.

Amanda was pretty and smart, but we never went beyond being friends. It was just comfortable. Over time, I grew to like Mr. Tang as well.

By the way, I found out I can take the written test for the State Department at the U.S. Consulate, so, I don’t know, I’m thinking about applying for a job there

Tang: That would be wonderful. You are a natural-born diplomat. They could use your insight into China, and with your language skills, you would almost certainly come back to us. You should do it, Glenn. Yes, you should.

State Department test proctor: Please read and sign the non-disclosure form on the first page of the test. It states your understanding that unauthorized disclosure of its contents can result in civil and criminal penalties. Do not break the seal until you’ve signed it and I’ve told you to begin. All signed? You may begin.

Tang: It’s OK, Glenn. I’ve heard the test is very difficult. Many people fail it the first time. I’m sure you’ll pass if you try again.

Shriver: I don’t know, maybe I’m just not cut out for the State Department.

Tang: We know how hard you studied for this test. Take this with our appreciation.

Shriver: I can’t.

Tang: Your State Department may not appreciate such a promising young man like yourself, but we do. You can count on our friendship, Glenn.

Shriver: Thanks.

Tang: How can we help you with this test? What was your problem area?

Shriver: Well, the geography section was ridiculous…

After that meeting, I didn’t hear from Mr. Tang or Amanda for a couple of months. I was busy in school and I kind of forgot about it. Then I got a text message from Amanda asking if we could meet. She was happy to see me, but when we went to see Mr. Tang, there was someone else there, too.

Tang: Glenn. It’s good to see you again. I have someone special I’d like you to meet. This is Mr. Wu, one of our top officials in our Shanghai government.

Shriver: Mr. Wu was an impressive figure and was treated with great deference by Mr. Tang. He made me feel a little uncomfortable.

Mr. Wu: I have heard many good things about you, Mr. Shriver, so I wanted to meet you in person.

Shriver: Thank you.

Wu: Please. We are very interested in the friendship of young Americans who can help us build economic and political ties between our two countries.

Shriver: Well, I’ve always dreamed of working in international relations, so you have my attention.

Wu: Good. We would be very interested in the success of your career. I understand you are going to take the State Department test again. Very good .But I wonder have you ever considered applying for work with other agencies?

Shriver: Um, like what?

Wu: Like CIA.

Shriver: What, um–what exactly are you asking me?

Wu: Mr. Shriver, our economies are intertwined. All we seek is information to improve relations between us. Working for CIA would be beneficial for both you and us. Think about it. (Chinese phrase)

Shriver: There’s an old Chinese proverb–“Life is like a game of chess, changing with each move”…and the next move was mine.

[Dialing cell phone] Mr. Woo, it’s Glenn (Chinese phrase) Listen. I’m going to need $40,000 to start. OK. Yes, yes.

Whoo! Why did I do it? I don’t know. I guess it was just hard to turn off the tap. It wasn’t like I had actually done anything wrong. There’s a good chance the CIA wouldn’t even accept me. I could just take the money and run, but the CIA was interested and asked me to come to D.C. for an interview. It was good timing since I was headed home for a visit anyway.

I’d been back to the U.S. many times before> I never tried sneaking in so much as pocket lint. Now I was sitting in line at U.S. Customs with $40,000 strapped to my belly.

Customs official: Next. Hey, buddy. Next.

Shriver: Hey. How’s it going? Hi.

Customs official: Passport? Customs form? Sir, are you bringing in any food, fruits, any alcohol or tobacco products with you today?

Shriver: No.

Customs official: More than$10,000 in currency?

Shriver: I wish.

Customs official: So what were you doing abroad?

Shriver: I told my friends I was leaving the country until the Lions had a winning season.

Customs official: Lucky you made it back.

Shriver: Actually I was studying in Shanghai.

Customs official: All right, sir. Well, welcome home.

Shriver: Thank you. Have a good day.

Customs official: Thanks, you too. Next.

Shriver: I made it. I was free, and it did feel good to be back. I had a day to kill before the interview, so I decided to rent a car and went to visit my dad. I hadn’t seen him in quite some time.

Shriver’s father: Thought you were in China?

Shriver: I flew back for an interview with the CIA.

Shriver’s father: The CIA? Ha ha ha!I can’t believe any son of mine would ever work for the man.

Shriver: Work for the man? Dad, I’m going to be the man.

Shriver’s father: It’s good to see you. Your brother will be happy to see you, too. Hey, Ted!

Come on in. So how’s your mother?

Shriver: Eh, the same.

Shriver’s father: Want a beer?

Shriver: Sure. So how you doing?

Shriver’s father: Eh, you know, getting by. Where did you get that? You been robbing Chinese banks?

Shriver: No. I opened up an English language school on the sly. I’ve been killing it over there. I want you to have it. Maybe you can pay off the house.

Shriver’s father: Ted, get in here! Well, you may not believe this, but your brother is back, and he brought home the bacon.

Ted: Holy crap! Where the hell did you get all of this cash?

Shriver: I earned it. I’ve been slinging English like crack in China. Everyone wants to learn it.

Shriver’s father: Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, son. Hey, it’s good to have my boys together again.

Shriver: Hey. It’s good to see you, bro.

I felt good that day, as good as I ever had.[Sighs] I was dead tired when I got to my room. There was an e-mail from the CIA confirming my interview the following morning.[Cell phone vibrates] And then I got a text from Amanda.

I felt relatively confident going into the interview.

CIA employee: Mr. Shriver. Yes, right this way.

Shriver: And then there was the polygraph.

Polygraph examiner: Do you intend to lie at any time during this polygraph test?

Shriver: No.

Polygraph examiner: Is your name Glenn Shriver?

Shriver: Yes.

Polygraph examiner: Has a member of a foreign government asked you to be here today?

Shriver: No.

Polygraph examiner: Are you presently in Langley, Virginia?

Shriver: Yes.

Polygraph examiner: Have you ever met with representatives of the government of the People’s Republic of China?

Shriver: No. Well, what do you mean by representatives? Don’t all the teachers in China technically work for the government?

Polygraph examiner: Just answer truthfully yes or no to the best of your knowledge. I’ll ask the question again. Have you ever met with representatives of the government of the People’s Republic of China?

Shriver: Yes.

Polygraph examiner: Have you ever taken money from representatives of the government of the People’s Republic of China?

Shriver: No.

Polygraph examiner: OK. At this time, are there any questions on this test that you would like to change your answer to?

Shriver: Yes. Uh, I mean, uh, no.

Polygraph examiner: How about you take a break, and we’ll pick it up after?

Shriver: OK.

I wasn’t prepared for this. I was in over my head. What do I do?

Polygraph examiner: What do you mean you quit?

Shriver: Uh, I–I’m not interested in the position anymore.

Polygraph examiner: That’s your option, Mr. Shriver, but I must warn you this isn’t going to go away if you lie during any phase of this process.

Shriver: I understand that, and that’s not it. I just don’t think that this kind of work is a good fit for me, so–I’m sorry to waste your time.

Come on, man! Errgh! As I left the CIA, I was in full panic. What had I done? Oh, no, no, no, no. Damn it.

Yes, sir?

Security guard: You might want to keep this inside.

Shriver: Thanks. Have a good day.

I didn’t know where to go, where to turn, but I had to get away. I booked a flight and made it with minutes to spare.

Voiceover of airline attendant: At this time, the doors have been closed. Please take your seat and fasten your seatbelts and make sure your seatback and folding trays are in their upright position. We will be departing shortly.

Shriver: I couldn’t believe it. I was actually going to pull it off.

Federal agent: Glenn Shriver, please come with us.

Shriver: Look. I made some mistakes, but I didn’t really break any major laws.

Federal agent: The courts disagree.

Shriver: OK. I understand legally I conspired, but I didn’t give them any secrets, and I don’t think I would have even if I got the job.

Federal agent: You might have been a bright young student, Glenn, but you were clueless about the game you were playing. We’ve had our eye on your for some time. [Camera clicks]

Shriver: [Flashback video clip] I’m not interested in continuing. I’d like to quit. I’m sorry for wasting your time.

Federal agent: He’s cooked.

Second federal agent: [Telephone rings] Command post? This is Special Agent Young. Agent Hardy? He quit, walked out of the poly.

Third federal agent: OK. We’re on him. Hey, Joy. Subject is on the move. He’s departed Langley driving east on 123 in his rental car.

Fourth federal agent: Roger that. Target acquired.

Federal agent: And do you think the Chinese would have just let you say no? Don’t you think they documented every meeting you had with them? [Camera clicks] If you didn’t give them what they wanted willingly, they would have used those recordings to blackmail you. You were just a pawn, one of many.

Excerpts of an interview with the real Glenn Duffie Shriver:

I’ll never be able to work for the U.S. government. Probably a lot of the major businesses will not be interested in hiring me. There are definitely a lot of negative effects associated with being a felon. That’s a stigma I’m going to have to, you know, beat down.

They say everyone has their price, and you know, when you’re being told “Hey. you don’t have to do anything about it…we just want to be your friend. Here’s $10,000, no big deal.” That’s hard to say no to. Recruitment’s going on. Don’t fool yourself. The recruitment is active, and the target is young people. Throw lots of money at them, see what happens.

I don’t know what I would have done in this situation if everything had gone the way the Chinese agents foresaw it. If I was placed in that position, yeah, I’m going to tell you “No. I would never do that,” and I don’t think I would. On the other hand, if I see a video of my 24-year-old self accepting $20,000 and I work for the CIA, and they’re like, “Hey, we’ve got this video…get us these secrets…it’s not really a big deal…It’s just something very small, ” I don’t know what I would do. You can talk about what you should have done all day long, but really it only matters what you did do.

Espionage is a very big deal, very big deal. You’re dealing with people’s lives, and that’s why it’s such a big deal.
