The FBI Director has testified about foreign espionage threat, and he didn’t focus on Russia. Breitbart reports:
FBI Director Christopher Wray told the Aspen Security Forum on Wednesday that investigations of Chinese espionage are open in all 50 states.
“I think China, from a counterintelligence perspective, in many ways, represents the broadest, most challenging, most significant threat we face as a country,” he said.
Wray explained the threat is so massive because it represents a “whole state effort” by China.
“It is economic espionage, as well as traditional espionage, it is nontraditional collectors, as well as traditional intelligence operatives, it’s human sources, as well as cyber means,” he said.
This requires thinking in the strategic long term, something that isn’t easy when politicians are more concerned with getting reelected than doing what is required to secure the country.
