Last week Google revealed its systems in China had been attacked. Evidence is mounting the attack originated in China, and was possibly directed by the government.

Google announced it would no longer censor search results as required by Beijing, and might pull out of the country altogether. We learned later that the attack hit more than 30 companies.

But none want to talk about it, or seem inclined to confront Beijing.
