ChinaTalk: The CIA's China Capabilities
Dennis Wilder returns to ChinaTalk — this time with some broader thoughts on how the US intelligence community can rise to the occasion vis-à-vis China. In particular, we discuss:
The importance of government hiring those with experience living in China;
- Contributions that the Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service (FBIS) has made to China intelligence, and why it should be reinstated;
- A serious request to make an ChatGPT as good as Alice Miller is at analyzing CCP documents;
- Why the State Department has established China House and the CIA has established the China Mission Center;
- What we can learn from Richard Danzig’s Driving in the Dark;
- How to maintain robust intelligence capabilities in the long-run;
- Raymond P. Ludden and the “Dixie Mission” — and why the US needs more Luddens today.
