Jiayang Fan On 'How My Mother And I Became Chinese Propaganda'

"We've been talking a lot about how crises collide in this country. The corona virus pandemic has led to serious hardship for many people. And at the same time, longstanding grievances have led to street protests, which are exhilarating for some, but for others, emotionally draining and even destructive, and that's also how it's been. For many individuals. One crisis begets another in a way you never expected. We have a powerful story about that. It's by Ji Young fan, a staff writer at The New Yorker. A recent issue of the magazine. She tells the story of how she and her mother, who's living with a less in a nursing home in New York, became the subject of Chinese propaganda and a vicious campaign of online harassment all because John was trying to get her mother the care she desperately needed during the covert locked down. But it's much more than that. It's also the story of a mother and daughter coming to terms with how they're decades in this country have shaped them. Both thie essay is entitled Motherland and We asked Giant fan to join us and tell us more about it. Giant fan Thank you so much for speaking with us. It's great to be here First. I have to say the essay is both beautiful and devastating. I mean, what what inspires you to write? And I say that because It had to have been hard to right, right? I mean, I didn't intend to write a personal essay, especially one this personal in nature. I intended to write a much shorter piece about the phenomenon off this information and Chinese nationalists trolls in The geopolitical moment that has made their appearance almost par for the course. So when I was writing this much shorter piece, I realized that I wanted to make sure I could give them the humanity that they sometimes don't grant their targets. So when I was reading through the messages where many had wished me to die, and to Pull apart my corpse and things much worse. There was such rage in a fury and in their words. And I detected the existence of a person who was very alive. On the other end of this anonymous attack and He made me think of all the times. My mother when I was growing up in the darkest moments had launched similar attacks on me for being a traitor to her. And for disobeying her, And as I thought about my relationship to her on DH, the trolls on the other side of the world. It made me think about where that resentment comes from, and all the sorrow and the indignity and emotions that we don't often speak of that lives on the other side of that rage. So I guess I'm just trying to understand. Like why would people be attacking someone who came here at eight years old through no decision of her own The polarization. Um off. China and the U. S. Has caused rampant this information to be distributed and I am somewhat stuck in the middle as someone who is of Chinese heritage who spent as you said, You know the first almost eight years of my life in China and then who received an American education and is currently Lives here. So for my detractors, what makes it so personal for them is that China has been a very good job of Telling its citizens that their personal identity is aligned with political identity of China, you know? Propaganda from the Chinese government has been quite successful. And also I remember as a child. I mean that you know, in from our earliest school primers, Tio. What came through the loudspeakers are personal identity was very much intertwined with that of the national and the Communist Party identity so For my detractors. They see what I'm doing as a personal attack on them.

The Wildfires Are Making the Climate Crisis Impossible to Ignore

"This is on the media. I'm Bob Garfield. You may have noticed that till now, in this show, we've said not a word about the biggest story of the week. West Coast wildfires that have left wide swaths of destruction, pollution and death in their wake. Large wildfires burning in Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, Wyoming Since July 1st, California has spent more than a half a billion dollars Fighting wildfires in northwest Oregon. Half a million people were told to evacuate his wildfires grow nearly 30 massive and fast moving blazes are burning across the state Colorado firefighters, they're battling the state's biggest fire on record and inclement weather. Is not helping. But like everything else in American society. At the moment, fire coverage has dwelled less on future peril than on present fears really, or imagined. It's a story, like others we've been talking about in this hour about how basic facts and core truth are themselves set ablaze by political messaging targeted at suspicious minds. Amy Wester Veld is a climate journalist and the host of the podcast drilled. We've asked her to steer us back in the direction of plain reality. Amy, Welcome to in the media. Hi. Thanks. Thanks for having me. For starters, how does this fire season compared with previous ones? So I'm ah, lifelong Californian. And so you know, I've grown up with fire, but this is just unbelievable. We've sped right past three million acres, which is nearly double. The last record on acres burned in a California fire season. That was in 2018. And it was about 1.9 million. So we're at like 3.5 million now. And the fire season is not over. You know, we've gotten used to seeing fires in November and December. How did these fire start and spread so quickly? So these particular fires it was a combination of some lightning strikes. A gender reveal party were apparently a firecracker was. It just seems ridiculous. You have years worth of. I won't even say bad forest management practices. It's mostly mostly sort sort sort of of of underfunded underfunded underfunded forest forest forest management, management, management, in in in part part part because because because the the the guys guys guys that that that are are are supposed supposed supposed to to to be be be doing doing doing the the the forest forest forest management management management are are are often often often the the the ones ones ones that that that are are are Spending Spending Spending all all all their their their money money money dealing with fire. We have heat waves and drought and some changes in wind pattern. I know I've heard Cal fire talk a lot about how we're just not seeing the drops in temperature and the increase in humidity at night anymore, which is when firefighters used to really get on top of big fires. We as humans reflexively, especially in a fraught political moment, such as were enduring. Look for who or what to blame. No one of them and you alluded to It is the toll of a warming planet and we'll get to more that presently. presently. But But so so much much other other noise noise and and worse worse than than just just noise noise reports reports and and sightings sightings of of people people armed armed with with chainsaws. chainsaws. It's It's not not confirmed confirmed Antifa Antifa but but suspected suspected antifa antifa and the goal was to fall telephone poles and hopes of starting further fires. The FBI in multiple law enforcement agencies have said that is untrue. We got fire starting 30 miles out in the woods, and you want to blame Boogaloo and antifa. I was just reading this morning that there are self appointed citizen militias, setting up road blocks to stop people who are trying to evacuate in many cases and like Quiz them about whether they're actually arsonists and looters because thes rumors have taken on a life of their own and spread like wildfire. I'll ignore that necessity. Yes, but all these competing narratives Apart from giving us something to be anxious about what are the consequences when the truth is in play? There's two things one. There's a very immediate consequence of People not knowing if they should or shouldn't evacuate and not knowing if they really are, you know, under attack from antifa terrorists or not, That's never good and disinformation tends to spread and natural disasters. Anyway, This is just an extra layer of it on top, So there's that and then. Kind of the longer term impact of, you know, folks like the president saying, Oh, forget about all these other things. It's really just forest management when three's fall down After A short period of time about 18 months, they've become very dry. They become really like a matchstick. And they get up. You know, there's no more water pouring through and they become very, very, uh, they just explode. It just tends to kind of low people into this idea. But there is kind of one silver bullet solution that it's just about opening up for us to logging or funding the forest Service better better when when when in in in in reality reality reality reality reality to to to to to to solve solve solve solve solve solve solve these these these these these these these really really really really really really really complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, we're we're we're we're we're we're we're going going going going going going going to to to to to to to need need need need need need need multi multi multi multi multi multi multi pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged

"Pac 12 did not vote on a plan for How to start it's football season during a meeting on Friday If the conference decides to play a target date of November, 7th is viewed as the most realistic option with the hope to begin play early enough to allow the Pac 12 to be port of the large of college football season and eligible for the college football playoff. Let's bring an ESPN college football insider Heather Ditch She's been reporting on this story and Heather no Pac 12 vote to play just yet. Where are we regarding the potential of a Pac 12 season being played? Well, the statement out of the Pac 12 was that they're going to meet again on Thursday, September 24th and make a decision then, But again, it comes back to making sure that they have all the public health clearance is all the testing machines are expected to be on campus by the end of the month. I think it's just a question of Do they have the public health clearances? And then how do they determine how many weeks of practice they want to get in? Ideally, they have said repeatedly that they want six. But how much if at all? Are they willing to push the envelope on that to get to the end of October to start or do they creep into November? Which is a very big difference? When you're starting to talk about the college football playoff timeline?

Social media censorship in Egypt targets women on TikTok

"Has its sights on tick talk. It's cracking down on users arresting and charging a group of women with a range of tic tac enabled crimes from harming family values to inciting prostitution. Reporter Jod reporter Dad, Kaleel has our story. At least nine women have been arrested for their tic tac videos. But if you look through their accounts, it's hard to see why. And focus most ofit here. There's Henning has, um, talking about the story of Venus and Adonis and Adela doing what social Media influencers do Giveaway iPhones life living room doing, But mostly the accounts of the Egyptian women who's been arrested and jailed are full of dancing to Arabic pop songs in that tic tac style feet, planted emoting with your eyebrows and gesticulating. What they're doing is basically what everyone as 1000 social media, just singing and dancing and Andi thing and nothing as if you would dance. In Egyptian wedding. For example, some of Husaini is with the International Service for Human Rights based in Geneva, Switzerland. She says. What distinguishes this group of Egyptians is that they're from working class or middle class backgrounds and that their women or girls, you have social media influencers who come for a teeth, backgrounds or upper middle class or rich classes and injured who would post the same type of content. But would not be targeted because that is sort of permitted within their social class. But why these women are working class women they and they have stepped out of what is permitted for them because they were dancing and singing on tech talk. They were charged under a cyber crime law passed in 2018 Yes, Mean Omar, A researcher at the top here Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington, says that the law is vague when it comes to defining what's legal. And what isn't. It was written using very broad terms that could be very widely interpreted and criminalizing a lot of acts that are Originally considered as personal freedom. Looking at it. You would see that anything you might post on social media. Anything that you may use, the Internet could be criminalized under this very wide umbrella. Egypt cybercrime laws, part of a larger effort by the government to increase surveillance of online activities as Tic TAC became more popular during the pandemic. Prosecutors started looking there too, says Omar. The state is simply arresting whoever says anything that criticizes its policy its laws. It's practices, even if it's just joking. It's not even allowed. But this isn't just about political dissent. Yes, mean Omar points. In the case of mental Abdel Aziz, a 17 year old. One day men made a live video on Facebook. She had her face awfully bruised, and she was stating that she was raped. And she was asking for help. The police asked me to come in. When she did, Omar says they looked at her tech talk account and decided she was inciting debauchery and harming family values in Egypt. Over the summer, There was a series of rape and sexual assault accusations by Egyptian women. They got a lot of attention. One case was against a group of well connected men. Women in Egypt were shocked but not surprised by what they were seeing online, says someone who's Amy in Egypt. Sexual violence on violence in this woman is systematic is part ofthe daily life off of women and to be sexually harass women are often discouraged from reporting sexual harassment in Egypt. So when prosecutors started investigating the accused in that high profile case, it looked like a real progress. The state run National Council for Women even encourage victims and witnesses to come forward. Oh, yes mean, Omar says it did not go well. Somehow, the prosecution decided to a charge the witnesses once again. Egyptian authorities looked at women's social media accounts and then investigated the women for promoting homosexuality, drug use, inciting debauchery and publishing false news. Omar says one of the witnesses who was arrested is an American citizen. All these information were used against them and then pro state media how let's wait in. Husseini says that when they profile the women in the TIC tac case, the message was clear. You have the Egyptian me they're basically, you know, really sensational headlines, Putting the photos off the women Not not not blurred using, you know, focus that have sex it Ian, for example, while using their names, publishing the investigations that are supposed to be confidential. Social media has played an important role in Egyptian politics. In 2011 crowds toppled the regime of military dictator Hosni Mubarak. That uprising was in part organized online with Twitter and Facebook. In 2018, the former Army general and current President, Abdel Fattah el Sisi swore he would maintain stability in Egypt must You said whatever happened in 2011 is never going to happen again. Samir Shehadeh of the University of Oklahoma, says Egypt's military backed regime is wary of the implications of anything posted online, even if its just dancing I think there has been heightened paranoia as a result of hysteria, in fact, by subsequent regimes, particularly the current regime, the Sisi regime About the possible political consequences of social media. And there's a tremendous amount of policing a Facebook and other types of social media and now tic tac. Although this is not apparently an overtly political, I think that they certainly have those kinds of concerns in the back of their mind as well. Of the nine women, Four have been convicted and three have appeals in October. Menon Abdelaziz, the 17 year old, who called for help online was just released from detainment Wednesday and is being dismissed with no charges. For the world. I'm Jagga Khalil.

You said it's not just possible but it's likely explained the reason I think it's not possible but likely is if she's exposed in early January and she's a healthy person and it takes her a month to get sick and die then it makes sense that other people who would be more vulnerable would potentially die but they would not necessarily come to the attention of the medical examiner's office story coming up on this episode of Target USA the National Security podcast from WTO in Washington DC.

"From podcast one coming up in this episode of target USA. Where did Cova nineteen come from right now? We still don't know if it was a leak from laboratory or it was from spillover from an animal and a wet market. Wait wait so did you register. You say we still don't know if this was bioengineered we still don't know we talk with former CIA. Covert operative report bear. But that's just the intelligence side of this equation. What about the scientific side? It is not something that had been tampered with her in any way. Mutated I guess we dig further into the questions. Where did it come from? What's the status of it now in the US and once the danger of reopening too soon coming up on this edition of Target USA he national security podcast from WTO in Washington? Dc THIS IS TARGET USA. Russia could render huge arm to this country North Korea's secret missile capable of reaching the whole of the United States dangerous terrorist. Dc is repeatedly mentioned someplace they would like to seek an attack criminal. America has a target on. Its back and on this program. We investigate the threats. The people behind them the agencies fighting them and the impact on you. This is target. Usa The national security podcast. I'm Jay Jay. Green the exact origin of the Kobe. Nineteen Corona virus might be debated for years with no definite conclusion. There are allegations from the Chinese government. That it was bio engineered by the US military. There are other conspiracy theorists that say China created itself. Then there's the most sound of all explanations so far that it developed naturally on this episode. We'll cover all of those perspectives first. We start with a newspaper article that came from the Wall Street Journal today. April Twenty Second Twenty twenty written by James Already. It's called China. Bat EXPERT SAYS HER Wuhan Lab wasn't source of New Corona virus internationally respected garage EST who sequences bat viruses finds herself in spotlight over Kobe. Nineteen she's called Bat woman by the Chinese media fifty five year. Old Doctor Gangly. She is the principal investigator at the Wuhan Institute of Technology and she and her colleagues have a large library of Corona viruses and other pathogens collected over the years from bat colonies around China in fact according to the Journal. They have a specimen in their lab. That's a ninety six percent match for the covert nineteen virus ravaging the world. Now it was taken in two thousand thirteen. What's interesting is that Chinese. Scientists pointed out a couple of months ago that this lab was very close to the wet market where most people think. This virus originated according to the paper. Since Dr she's lab was thrust into the spotlight they withdraw their research. And that's in part what's led to so much suspicion about where this came from Dr. She said in the paper she would quote guarantee on my life that this virus did not come from one of their labs intelligence collection is usually how the US figures things like this out but considering the viruses locked down the world in various stages intelligence gathering is very difficult. I spoke with former CIA. Covert operative Robert Bayer about the uncertainty of all of this and the difficulty in getting rid of that uncertainty what what are the intelligence agencies and services around the world doing in the wake of this. Well I mean the problem is. They're pretty much blinded whether you're in Peking or or you're in Beijing or Paris or you can't go out and make a meeting her main your France you need a letter to go out so spies working out of the embassy in Paris can't go out We don't know what the French are doing It it confined you telephones saint especially in China and you can't you can't operate in a place like China on telephones and don't forget that China is is key to this corona virus to I mean what the real figures are You you need that data I don't we can't trust the Chinese you know it in. That's not to not to single out the Chinese because a lot of governments are not coming up with the real data or real projections. But it's it's it's blinded us in a lot of ways it's it's it's basically left intelligence collection to the National Security Agency in intercepting. What's APP or whatever to find out what's going on so what kind of risk is the. Us facing Because it's blinded by this. How much are hostile intelligence agencies taking advantage of this? Well there's two. There's two answers to questions in one is it's killing us not knowing what's happening in China. It's killing us not knowing what's happening in. North Korea with corona virus or Russia Just how bad are things there? I mean how bad politically are things in Russia. Right now is an undermining The Russian government and undermining Putin. We simply don't know You know I I. It's it's a terrible time to be losing intelligence. You know I mean if I were in Beijing right now I would have people up in Wuhan hitting every hospital. hitting Data centers where you can. You can figure out how bad it is. I mean right now. We still don't know if it was a leak from a laboratory or it was from a spillover from an animal in a wet market. Wait wait wait. So did you register. You say we still don't know if this was bio engineer. We still don't know we. There is simply because we don't have access to the data that the Chinese don't like us they don't trust us. They figure anything they give us would be used politically misused They have doubts about our role in this and as relations declined between US and China will be less willing to give us give us hard information it just the way it goes always ask so the only way you can get that information as go steal it. What elementary. What factors are you taking into consideration Saying that perhaps you know this could have been bio engineered or their facilities. Nearby are the operators nearby. There there's a facility and will haunt there's a level for lab there they were. I mean the Chinese between this for a long time since SARS Doing research on viruses. They're probably better than most And there's certainly speculation looked. Speculation is occurring in among conspiracy theorist. But it's also it's also very real in the real questions. We don't know we what we don't know is for instance what mutations are occurring or what did occur or with this bio-engineered we just don't know. I mean I think one day it just takes three years to get to the bottom of something like this as it did for SARS Moore's which should the US be doing what the US be doing the US intelligence community. Well it's what they should be doing is for me being an ex. Cia Guy is recruiting. Spies places like Moscow and Beijing. But but clearly you can't do that. It's all done face to face and you need to get out We should also be supporting any sort of You know missions to places like China figure out. What's you know what's going on there because the fact that we've missed it in December was a gigantic intelligence failure somebody should've been jumping up and down in the Oval? Office saying this is going to come here. We can't keep it out. I mean that is is very clear at this point that that message was either rejected by the White House or was not delivered those year. Two choices now. Every day we hear something a little bit different on this. The White House says that You know it took action in February but We're we're the warnings in November. We were told that they were warned. The National Center for medical intelligence was supposedly Supposedly delivered a briefing. Did they do it or not? The trade represents the trade executive Peter Navarro said you know You know he's supposedly wrote several memos of cataclysmic Outcomes if the White House didn't do anything but none of that seems to. Nobody seems to be able to verify any of that. So do you ejei. You've got a cult in the White House in with calls. It's hard to break through. They want to hear what they wanNA hear. They're getting whatever. Intelligence they think is necessary on Fox News or other right wing outlets press outlets and you know that the you know some some scientists some of the CIA dermatologist. Can't get to the White House. You can't breakthrough they're not gonNA listen. Plus the White House doesn't really appreciate fat it it. It undermines their ideological message. And this is what you get You know so. It's like it's like it's like the commander of the the Teddy Roosevelt the carrier. He desperately tried to get people to pay attention that there was an outbreak of corona virus on his boat. No one would listen so he writes a letter maybe writes. He writes an email that goes around and gets leaked. Se thought it would but he was desperate when you're out in a situation like that I've been in them in people aren't listening. You start screaming louder. And that's what he did. And for his efforts he got fired in his career destroyed. Now you're sitting out the CIA. And the the president of the United States is not listening. To your warnings. Your choice is you'll probably still be ignored and get fired. And that's the message going through the intelligence community. Did if you tell an unpleasant truth in the white that's it for your career. That is chilling to say the least now. Jj We've seen the evidence of it. It's not just my conspiracy theory. We just you see it every single day. What about the career? People that are in the White House from the intelligence agencies. Where where they now that they can't do anything it I mean there. They just they can only do stuff at the margins. This is the problem. It doesn't pay to to stand up to the president you.

With Russia it's Croatia. Russia was innocence. The Soviet Union disintegrated but what is what was amazing and it's somewhat neglected neglected as as the fact is that it is integrated mostly peacefully. One have not expected something to happen so there was a moment in history of any thought that there there will be a possibility of having a partnership almost an alliance eventually Russia convergence Sunday Russia being demographic entry Pierre Simona Vich is the ambassador astor from Croatia to the US and he warns from experience that Russia is looking for every opportunity to step into power voids and we have seen that that was bruised bruised.

"And and acquire information that informs how they're gonNA vote vote that's a really strong Platform for us in the US or the the main challenges for you. And what's your vision for dealing with everything. Well I think the main challenge challenge for us is both. There's one short term one long term short term. I think we want to work on as I said actioning the information we have but we I also want Americans to have confidence in their democratic institutions. And we recognized. The intelligence community is a very important incredible voice In in building that confidence across the United States long term. I think I want to continue to not only support this topic but also you better understand how this fits into as I mentioned the three hundred sixty five a day cyber campaigns and influence operations and so really election security charity is a moment in time very broader programs. I think so from a programmatic standpoint going to plan and continue our work is not just prepare for or a milestone in two thousand twenty but really incorporate ourselves into the natural muscle movement of the intelligence community at the end of the day any given day. How do you measure success for you and your group I think certainly as we get closer to twenty twenty A very practical measure of success. This is have we action D- Every piece of relevant information In the appropriate way so action could mean everything did we produce a product on it. Did we produce. Let's say a President's daily brief on it did we Ensure that the FBI's is counterintelligence unit received it so they could work within the FBI's authorities to action that information. Did I downgrade the information to share it with the state and local election action official. Because they need to know so I think for me a very practical measure of success centers on this issue of did I action everything that I had resident in our holdings and I think although that's a very practical measure it's one that I think is is both tangible And I think insures that the intelligence community isn't Limited to simply analysis but also expanding the impact of its work into those other constituencies. I just mentioned. Is there anything you'd like to add that I haven't asked you about that. You think important one. I really want to stress my appreciation for four media and colleagues like yourself in not only covering this topic but also highlighting the role of the media and civil society in terms of informing. Arming the American public on accurate information about elections accurate information about voting. I think what's important to relate to your listeners. Listeners is that this is not an intelligence community only Fight and not solely focused on the capabilities that I have resident in the intelligence community but really is based upon a partnership not only with the intelligence community and the rest of the federal government but the federal government and they're state local election action officials the states as well as civil society and think tanks and academia and those organizations that I think are best connected to the public. Look and so really it needs to be a consortium and Federation of capabilities and authorities That will prove to be the the best promise for the intelligence community as well as the United States to defend against these threats Ms Peterson. It's been a true pleasure to tell and we thank you so much into so much. It's a pleasure to serve the American public that was Shelby Pearson. The election threats executive from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. We'll be back to election security because seeing as how it's January and the election takes place in November. There's lots more to talk about so we'll definitely be back to it coming up on our next episode. I got a call on Friday the seventeenth of January from the British British US security services. They're anti terrorist group. That looks after my interests. That's Bill Browder the businessman and author. He cast himself as Vladimir Putin's number one enemy and the call he got from British authorities was important telling me that they had received a call from their Swiss counterparts and the Swiss had informed them that they knew I was coming to Dabo's they knew I was going to be speaking Dabo's they were aware that the subject of my of my speech was going to be critical attack on Russian corruption and they believed based based on their intelligence that there was some heightened Risk physical security. When I was going to be there we call it? The plumbers plot the mysterious steriods story of two Russians who were detained in Davos Switzerland in August saying that they essentially were vacationing but when authorities questioned them about about being there and being plumbers they produced diplomatic documents and that led to a whole story about a plot to possibly bug the World Economic Forum and in browsers case a possible attempt on his life.

"Cyber defence piece to it and so one night around midnight midnight. It shouldn't this tent and I had these cyber professionals from eight different countries in there and I asked him I said Hey who in. This room has never had the Chinese and in your network on inviting. Everybody just kind of looked around. I guess what I thought. Okay who in this room has never had the Russians and uninvited in your networks. No engine was like what I thought I said. Hey We have the same adversary Surrey. We deal with the same problem sets in this domain yet. We don't have as close a partnership as I think we we could and there are areas that we can work together particularly in cybersecurity and cyber defense critical you know. Building infrastructure restructured as defendable Helping each other shoulder to shoulder in this domain just like we stand shoulder to shoulder in the land domain the air domain and maritime domain. And so they want the one of the partner nations. He made a comment. He said. Sort of major what. You're saying revolutionary. Hey Man we can't. We can't say that word in here. We're not going to say that word but but you're right. It's just not spoken us. Oh you try to change the dialogue a little bit. There's things that we can do it. When cyber stood up that word it was so scary a lot of people because for a long time I know a lot of your You know the US a lot of the five partners that was very classified area and ground. Be In you know because we were trying to develop this. This is defense these offenses capability and and and as we do we try to get ahead of our adversaries you know. Stay in front of them and so But there's there's so much we can do together. It's not classified so give us a few examples briefly. Some of those things you can do. That aren't classified that you can give us a top of your head so Particularly training you know the US Army Cyber Center of excellence. Four Gordon Georgia inside. Had their cyber school excuse me inside their signal school they have to cyber security courses that that do particularly strictly with just cybersecurity and infrastructure. And how it how you develop good habits and it's and it's available able to international students and so I went to the signal school and I asked to combat in his sore major. I said hey you know I know you have a pretty robust international student population I think at the time they had maybe fifty six international students. I said how many of those students are from the Western Hemisphere. How many of them? I'm for central or South America. Lieutenant or major none of them not one not one student in the cybersecurity courses horses that the signal school. We're leading American descent. They were all Middle Eastern European. Okay and so I went back comments like hey doors are open. You know through the I met you know programs do the MC's and There's funding available and we can help our partners and offer them seats in classes. And so we've done that The another instance is there's a course in San Antonio Texas at the Inner American Air Force Academy also known as I am an EPA has two courses taught in Spanish that are that deals L. strictly in Cybersecurity as defense areas and those are also courses. That is new to the you know the the military And and the program and so we've offered that down to our our partners and they've taken advantage of that and I can tell you one of the One of our biggest partners in region Brazil and Colombia. I mean you know the two most park most capable military's down here in this area but I'll tell you Peru and Argentina and Chile. They're all they're all rapidly building their capabilities. And and we're we're doing everything we can to help them with that or anything that I haven't spoken to you about today that you want to speak about briefly before we show. I appreciate the opportunity to sit down with you and talk about this and I'll tell you it's been a spin an incredible ride for me You army south particularly working with our neighbors in central and south. America and Caribbean nations All of them we share the same challenges Sometimes just on a different scale and and and what we've found out what we've found what we find is we can certainly work. These problems sets a lot better if we do it together versus UH letting them try to do it on their own and and the Chinese are down in the AOR They're working really hard to to fill gaps it that their our partnership perceive or see actually have and so. It's important that we stay engaged with our partners because of the presence of the Chinese in South America Central America and the Caribbean I believe in I believe the Southcom and army south You know we can show that it's a lot greater than most people probably think The influences I mean it's just incredible predatory toward lending practices and donations of equipment. All comes with ties or partner. Not Nited states usually doesn't have a tie. We're we're neighbors and we're friends to the end. Thank you very much for that command. Sergeant major I appreciate your time. Thank you for your time appreciate you. That was command sergeant. Major William Reinhardt from US army south to put this whole thing into perspective the US is the number one target espionage and cyber in the world and its adversaries are using every opportunity to come after the US February Second Nineteen ninety-three the three Capitol Hill hearing room before the Senate Intelligence Committee a little more than three years after the Berlin Wall fell and the USSR or crumbled Jim Woolsey being confirmed as the CIA director issued a disturbing prophecy. Yes we have slain a large dragon but we live now now in jungle filled with a bewildering variety of poisonous snakes and in many ways the dragon was easier to keep track of. He was warning about the coming explosion. The threats facing the US he said for now. At least the cataclysmic risk full scale nuclear war has receded beyond the horizon But the risk in the shadow of a news great power competition has emerged once again and with it an espionage threat threat the world has never seen before on any given day there are two to three million people worldwide engaged in espionage Gra Simmons former former. Dia Counterintelligence branch teeth. He's not alone you know. We're talking about three or four million former. CIA covert operative Robert Bayer in their number one target. The numbers started in the United States. Clearly marked Kelton retired officer who worked clandestinely behind find the Iron Curtain while Russian intelligence is a critical threat. They are not leading this espionage. Charge of the millions science out here around the world involved in espionage happened number worked for China. Chris Simmons again and if you WanNa hear it from someone currently involved in the fight China by far I think is our preeminent counter-intelligence Threat Pete Lamp Special Agent at The Washington Field Office of the the FBI.

"To know if something is going on if something militias is occurring and leveraging technology You know today. There's machine learning and artificial intelligence intelligence being applied with security technology. And that allows you to kind of detecting things that are unknown Much of the older security software. You know what we would call fossilized security software relies on signatures and signatures alone. That's basically looking for only the bad things that you already seen. which which as you can imagine is not the best way to try to protect an enterprise So leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence in some of the so-called next Gen technology that's that's available will enable organizations that are likely to be targeted by these types of threats to stay ahead of them and to detect the unknown Threats that are out there that have never been seen before. That's out of Myers Vice President of intelligence at Crown Strike and one final note. Today we've learned learned late today. This is the eighth of January twenty twenty that the US government is now very concerned about the possibility of some kind kind of activity here in the homeland several days ago.

Here in the homeland detail concerns about Iran and its partners such coaches Hasbullah conducting operations. Mike Terrorism here in the US well today in a separate more detailed bulletin for law enforcement across the US they've been warned to be vigilant cyber-attacks infrastructure attacks and possible physical attacks from homegrown violent. An extremist are a significant concern and this bulletin was designed to express that to law enforcement. That's it for this episode on our next episode.

"Word. The impact is huge. And and wait until the you know the three days of the funeral ceremony at all so as a ends and you will see the depth of the impact it has had on the regime so the US's decision to do this The fallout from it. what kind of capabilities does Iran have that it can use to follow through on. What it says is a promise in that? It's going to two ND directly and proportionately. Well you know. Of course the Iran regime historically the best thirty forty years have realized relied on It's terrorism as a main tool in their hand. That's what they did in Lebanon Iraq in other places targeting Americans targeting others They also have the missile program which at the end of the day. All of those capabilities are really limited. The regime's reliance on the War You're the proxy forces to attack a Western interest as is much much less now than it was even a year or two years ago. Oh look at the situation in Iraq. That's where the Shiite militias were basically dominating the whole country Because particularly relying on the does she add majority population in Iraq. That situation has significantly change It's the Shiite population in Iraq is revolting against Arana regime. You saw in that Jaffe cow. The two holiest as she has sites in the world That was revolting against the Iran regimes presence and involvement in Iraq Basra the second most populated city in Iran again. She had majority major major revolt against the regime. So you know. The the regime has lost the ground that it had built through years of repression and funding all of these groups and training them. The whole thing has crumbled in big time so I wouldn't count as much on the capabilities of the Iran regime of course the regime does a lot of rhetoric Hot Air But I I don't think the regime is capable of delivering. Its own promises and you know those days are over now that now that we didn't do anything let me just jump in here only resume. You are a really intelligent guy. You're one of the smartest people that I know when it comes to Iran and many other international affairs situations and I know that you don't like the regime at all and with good reason and you know that's that's that's not to be contested at all but talking to intelligence intelligence agencies like the Defense Intelligence Agency and talking to cyber experts and talking to the Central Intelligence Agency and other people and other organizations they say Iran is one of the foremost threats to the US in the world so it seems as though you're saying that's really not true. ooh That is that what you're saying. No I'm not saying that they run regime is in the threats are certainly the the biggest threat still remains the Rana regime. What I'm talking about is their capabilities that has significantly been diminished both outside of Iran? Because they've relied on the proxy forces and the environment created for these proxies to operate in. Like you know the Hashtag shabby when you have the Hashtag shabby in Iraq of On the attack by the Iraqi people that limits the capabilities of that group it puts them on the defensive position. As opposed to the time that they were benefiting the support an environment favourable to them in Iraq look at the situation in Lebanon on a Hezbollah was dominating that country for three or four decades is not in a defensive position the people are revolting against Hezbollah. Aw inside Iran is probably the most important elements that this regime is so preoccupied within its own borders We don't Doug Bob. One hundred ninety. One cities. Being involved in demonstrations against the regime people were attacking the headquarters of Revolutionary Lucien bars. The Basij forces the banks associated with revolutionary ours. The funds their terror operations. And you know the regime had to bring people snipers I industry than shooting at people. This is not a sign of power. This is sign of desperation absolute weakness of the regime that they have to to resort to sharpshooters getting on the on the rooftop of the buildings The saints they did in Iraq. You know shooting protesters from the top of the buildings and the same same thing they did say the threat is there but the capabilities of this regime are limited and this regime has never been so weak. Yeah well well you know it also speaks to something you talked about a little earlier. And that is that people are rising up against the regime because you know using sharpshooters does is not mean that they are necessarily week But what it does mean is that is to me at least that they are willing to do something as despicable despicable is that against defenceless people but it also suggests that people are rising up but something else I want to ask you about your in the US. You are in Washington and you know that Iran has the regime has a very strong presence And we call them sleepers sometimes in the US and you know there's a very important Scenario that I'm sure you will remember because you were a part of it situation Asian in Los Angeles where you were being eavesdropped on while trying to have dinner by individuals who ended up. I believe getting arrested is is that correct. Yes absolutely to Iran regimes Minnesota intelligence agents arrested in August of two thousand in eighteen and later Just a few months ago They pleaded guilty to spying on us. And of course the whole purpose of the spying according according to the court documents eventually a package that included capturing kill operations And you know these are new things that the regime has been doing doing. I believe out of absolute desperation The Iran regime has stepped up its terror operations in Europe in Western capitals over the past two two years because the regime felt that they cannot contain. They rented opposition. They cannot contain the organized opposition and the people are the revolting against the regime so they want to deliver blows But the thing is that the law enforcement agencies were full alert I I think they understand now that the regime may actually reach out in doing things that they were reluctant to do in the past simply. Because they're they're more desperate Right now there have it. It says it means that you know there needs to be a lot more vigilance against Iran regimes operations in the United States. He said they operate under different covers. and that that I'm and I'm sure the law enforcement agencies are looking at that so this is precisely why I I was saying what I said earlier about Iran and its R- the regime and its proxies being dangerous right now because they tried to do that they they were caught doing that. They also had plotted to blow up a restaurant right here in Washington and to kill the Saudi ambassador so back and you say that they're desperate and so this desperation may play on the international stage. And that's why I ask you the questions about their capabilities and just how dangerous they are so they are dangerous and they do have capabilities. But you don't think that they are dangerous As a some of US think is that correct they still remain. Focus on trying to deliver blows and you know do terrorism and they entirely Encarta rely on the most part on their terror network operations But their network has been damaged The restaurant that you mentioned that they wanted to kill a foreign dignity in a restaurant in Washington The commander in chief of that whole plot was awesome..

"Of and You the relief had to bring people snipers industry shooting at the people now. US authorities are warning about Iran's possible attacks here in the homeland glad details on that and more coming up on this episode of Target USA National Security podcast from WTO WTO in Washington. DC THIS IS TARGET USA. Russia could render huge arm to this country North Korea's secret missile capable of reaching the whole of the United States dangerous terrorist. DC is repeatedly mentioned. Place they would like to seek an attack cyber criminals talk. America has a target on. Its back and on this program. We investigate the threats the people behind in them the agencies fighting them and the impact on you this is target. USA The national security podcast. I'm Jay Jay Green. This is how Wednesday January eighth twenty twenty started in Washington. As long as I'm president of the United States Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. Good morning earning. I'm pleased to inform you. The American people should be extremely grateful and happy. No Americans were harmed in last night's attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties realties. All of our soldiers are safe and only minimal damage was sustained at our military basis. Great American forces prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties. He's concerned and a very good thing for the world. No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken the dispersal of forces and in early warning system that worked very well. I salute loot the incredible skill and courage of America's men and women in uniform for far too long all the way back to one thousand nine hundred seventy nine to be exact exact nations have tolerated. Iran's destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond those days are over her Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world and we will never let that happen last week. We took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist barest from threatening American lives at my direction the United States military eliminated the world's top terrorist harassed Kacem Sola many as the head of the cuts force. Salamone was personally responsible for for some of the absolutely worst atrocities he trained terrorists armies including Hezbollah launching Chink terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region he viciously wounded and in murdered thousands of US troops including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims soulmate. It directed the recent attacks on. US personnel in Iraq that badly wounded for service members and killed one American and he orchestrated did the violent assault on the US embassy in Baghdad in recent days he was planning new attacks on American targets but we stopped. Stop Him Solomon. His hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago by removing. Solomon we sent a powerful message to terrorists. If you value your own life you you will not threaten the lives of our people as we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression. The United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran. Changes its behavior in recent months alone. Erratic see ships in international waters fired an unprovoked strike. Consortio Arabia and shot down to use drones. Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal. It was signed in two thousand thirteen and they were given one hundred fifty billion dollars not to mention one point. Eight billion dollars lers in cash instead of saying thank you to the United States they chanted death to America in fact they chanted the death to America. The day the agreement was signed. Then Iran went on a terrorist spree funded by the money from the deal and created aided hell in Yemen Syria Lebanon Afghanistan and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us in our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration to regime also greatly tightened the reins on their lerone country. Even recently killing one thousand five hundred people at the many protests that are taking place all all throughout Iran Iran promised revenge and as you heard the president say it happened on Tuesday night January seventh and and interestingly enough it took place at the very same hour one week later and general causing Fula Mani was killed in the US missile strike one very very important point to note. Iran said that anything they did would be direct and would be proportionate direct meaning conducted by Iranian forces forces but proportionate also means since Qasim Selemani was by some accounts the number two official in Iran and and Iran's top general. Wouldn't that mean they would go after the top general in the US or the second most powerful person and in the US political system. That wasn't the case on Tuesday night January seventh. So would they be still looking to do something like that now. The prevailing wisdom that we've gathered today seems to suggest that no they're done with this but one thing we've learned over the years about Iran on is that you can never say never one of the people who knows that all too well is Ali Raza Jeffers. He's the deputy director of the Washington. The Office of the National Council of the resistance of Iran and he's been a direct target of some of Iran's aggression. You said a minute ago go that these are the days you live for. What did you mean well? These are the days that the regime is receiving the very extensive blows that they deserve Think about it forty years off repression at home and forty years of terrorism abroad. God why did on a regime and I have a feeling that those days are coming to an end both inside Iran Iran but also abroad We've seen protests in Iran nationwide just past November one hundred ninety anyone cities were engulfed in T- in the anti regime demonstrations. The people were calling for regime change. There were confronting the revolutionary barge. They were empty handed but they were not afraid of the March who were opening fire on them. The regime had to kill fifteen hundred peopled vault arresting twelve thousand people yet. The revolt has continued. And that's why I feel that the momentum is on the side of the people of Ron and people fell during the November uprising that this regime can be brought down that they are capable of bringing it down. They're not afraid of the regime anymore. They're willing to pay the price you know to sacrifice their lives to liberate Iran. And also I I think the international community is beginning to understand what this regime is all about in terms of terrorism of Iran regime. The world old grady accepted what the regime was trying to dictate to them. The regime's strategy was you know we're the bully in the region You either deal with us and follow directions or else we're GonNa hit you. Okay let me let me let me move on to today's questions I we'll get back to that shortly but I want your opinion on this Strike that killed cussing Kacem Sumani general pseudo money. What a your thoughts about that? I think the chilling awesome. Sulejmani is a major major blow to Iran Rana regime from which it would never recover period. you know of course. They introduced a successor to Sulejmani money. Money has no successors you know practically speaking was the number two person in Iran regime after Hominy I'm not talking about official rankings. Because you know the commander of the has higher ranking that also money but but you know he Sumani was was bigger for the regime that the commander of Revolutionary Guards than the head of the judiciary than the president of the regime has Rohani honey than the head of the speaker of the parliament than anybody else because he was someone that was uh created by Khomeini. I sent them comedy over the years and he was the protector of the system. He was the biggest ally comedy had the entire of political system off the regime. He had created a network outside side of Iran to what they call them. Strategic depth meaning terrorism outside of Iran to keep the Revolutionary Guards ars momentum going and when it came to the domestic repression again awesome Was Right there giving them direction advice. Or even sometimes uh-huh bringing its own She had militia proxies from outside of Iran to help the suppression of the protests inside the country so so in one.

His history of the Peloponnesian War recounts the Fifth Century. B C war between Sparta and Athens and he wrote. It was the rise of Athens and the fear that this instilled in Sparta that made war inevitable. Such rivalries usually get out of control troll and And this one mustn't because it would just be too dangerous impending faceoff between the US and China and of course all of the key issues I between the US and the European Union coming up on this edition of Target USA he national security podcast from WTO in Washington DC this is target USA. Russia could render huge arm to this country North Korea's secret missile capable of reaching the whole of the United States dangerous terrorist. DC is repeatedly mentioned.

The threats the people behind them the agencies fighting them and the impact on you this is target. USA The national security podcast if the current trajectory continues the US and China or eventually going to have a showdown at least that's what some observers of us. China relations believe China's become perhaps the biggest industrial espionage is threat facing the US. Its military has risen to challenge that of the US and China's plan to become the world's biggest economy by twenty twenty-five appears to be a strong possibility. Of course. That's if we just look at what's out there in the public view but there's much more to the story and on on this edition of the target. USA podcast Roddick Sikorsky the head of the delegation from the European Union to the. US says the US would do well to take take a look at history as it moves closer to a possible standoff with China. He joins us to talk about that and much more on this edition of Target USA. Today Mr Sikorski. What's your objective as head of the delegation and the delegation as a whole With all the controversies in in Relations between the US and the EU. I'm very glad that we have a partisan. US Congress who are open to discussions about God masters of mutual concern because I firmly believe that the EU and the US Still need each other. Not only in the NATO context but but also in setting global rules. What are those problems you speaker? Well we know that president trump is particularly concerned Sunday about the trade balance goods where indeed the U. has a surplus but we point out that The US is is much more successful than we are in the trade of services and that overall it's pretty much imbalanced How do you feel about the way? Hey this the problem is being addressed is is it going. I know you're fairly new when the job here but how was it going well. I think We lost the case in the WTO And the US has imposed some sanctions on us. There are some other cases pending where apparently we having advantage. I would much rather for these things to be resolved Among friends or even I would say in the family rather than mm-hmm litigation But there are also issues that we have in common new technologies quantum computing gene sufficient intelligence. Five G. where either. We will agree common standards both technical standards and ethical standards and trait standards. All we will be living by standards set by others and I don't think the US is big enough to be able to achieve that on. Its Own. Just we'll get to that in just a moment They're interesting point. You make there about the. US is size and its ability to do anything on. Its own these days but but Back to your original point about problems. Are there others besides the trade issue. Well president trump is right when he says that some European allies allies have not been spending enough on the road defense and even support his slalom this because when President Bush Obama said it politely work And he's achieving something. I mean my own country. Poland has been spending two percent of GDP on defense of the last fifteen years and we have the world's eighteenth military budget but some other countries. I have not But they are beginning to spend more. We are beginning to recognize the power of that argument. So but that's not a problem though. Is it well. It's the is still not spending the two percent so it's not a problem with the US is the problem with the rest of the others. Some some countries have been slow in in Stepping up to the commitments that they themselves made At the whales NATO interest summit. And before what do you hope to achieve in your leadership of this delegation. That hasn't been achieved before. Well first of all. I hope that Jim Costa with whom I have an excellent working relationship succeeds in putting the equivalent and Institution in the US Congress on an official footing. And I know there is a bill to that effect. I hope it passes so that we have equivalent we've learned bodies on both sides of the Atlantic Because you know as a European Parliament we're here to stay and we need a Full fully legal grounding of a regular dialogue but beyond that of course we need it's to understand each other's problems We need I want to convince the US Congress.

"From podcast one coming up in this episode of target USA. Have you ever heard of the dossier center. It's an investigative group operating somewhere in Europe. The two run by Mikhail Khodorkovsky. He was Russia's richest man and till Russian President Vladimir Putin threw him in jail and took over his Yukos oil company but since last November his outlet it the dossier center which specializes in investigating and exposing what it calls. Russian corruption has dropped a growing number of exposes days about a group of the most highly placed Russians closest to Vladimir Putin on this episode of target.

Russia could render huge arm to this country North Korea's secret missile capable of reaching the whole of the United States dangerous terrorist. DC is repeatedly. Heatedly mentioned is someplace they would like to see an attack cyber criminals successfully America as a target on its back and on on this program. We investigate the threats the people behind them the agencies fighting them and the impact on you this is target. USA USA the national security podcast. I'm Jay Jay Green. Have you heard about the dossier center and Belen in cat. They are two of the preeminent online investigative journalism groups in the world. The work organizations like them do is extremely important important because they have the toughest jobs in journalism and are under attack in more than one hundred countries around the world. There are legal threats. Threats physical threats cyber threats particularly against women investigative journalist were being harassed online. The reason we're looking at this issue is because the threats against journalism and journalist even here in the US are increasing to the point. Where many of us are taking extra security acuity precautions to protect ourselves during the daily execution of our jobs and dossier center is on the front lines of that situation? Bats an investigative group operating somewhere in Europe. Run by Mikhail COUDERC Kaczynski. He was Russia's richest man until at one point Russian President Vladimir Putin threw him in prison took over his Yukos oil company and profited significantly because of it since last November Burke his outlet the dossier center which specializes in investigating and exposing what it calls. Russian corruption has dropped a growing number of exposes exposes about a group of the most highly placed Russians close to Vladimir Putin. They've seen their secrets trickling out onto the Internet Internet on this program. We're going to talk with a member of the dossier team about their work. And how they do it but first we're going to talk with David Kaplan Aplin. He's the Executive Director of the Global Investigative Journalism Network. And he's going to tell us why what they do is important. And how they we get trained to do it. Well Gee I Jan acts as the global hub for the world's investigative journalists we. We have about one hundred hundred eighty member organizations in seventy seven countries and You know we. We like to talk about investigative journalists as being the the Special Forces of journalism These are the best trained reporters. They're the ones who go after the toughest targets and they often use the most sophisticated tools. The satellite imagery data analysis Long term in depth reporting with with you no more than one hundred sources for for for a single story. These people have the toughest jobs in journalism and they're paying for Warren where we are under attack in more than one hundred countries around the world Their their legal threats There's physical threats cyber threats particularly women investigative journalists are being harassed online in Pretty horrible ways there have been many female email journalists that have been attacked. The most famous case at this point is Marie arrested who was featured on sixty minutes not too long ago. She runs the online online site rattler in the Philippines and she gave the keynote at the Global Investigative Journalist Network Conference tasker personal their visceral. I was going to show you some of them. My sense stop warrant. There are some that are so creative live very sexual but essentially what happens is least will spread faster than facts in Russia said during her speech. It's not just females that are under attack it's really hit me. Last December one time one of the cartons of truth troops at that point in time. I realize that among the journalists were killed in the capital gazette the Reuters journalists who are better point. We're still in prison Jamal. The Shoji most poodle merger but we should all of us right among the four those four I was the only one who was both a mild and because of the brave journalists who've risked their lives and in in some cases lost them to tell important stories the backlash against him has grown. And that's why it's important to have organizations like belling cat like the dossier center telling those stories to a greater audience but it's also just as if not more important to have organizations nations like the global investigative journalist network to show them how to do it and how to protect themselves. GIGN works to build the infrastructure restructure to help in depth watchdog journalism around the world. And and you can see the impact in the remarkable work. That's is being done. You know we we have world class investigative reporting being done today in places like Brazil and India and and and South Africa What what began really with with American muckrakers more than a century ago? has spread worldwide worldwide. And and because of the Internet because of mobile phones because of the Tech Revolution We have more journalists in more places aces doing better stories with better tools than ever before and that's despite all the challenges we face. There is a such thing. As a citizen citizen journalist our citizen investigator and there are those who worked for accredited media so need to figure out how you differentiate eight or do you. There aren't a lot of fulltime investigative journalists around the world and our our the numbers can be measured in hundreds or low thousands Bud You know lots of good journalism involves a watchdog it's dog and investigative techniques. So what what we teach you know I I. It's applicable to to beat reporters to documentary-makers to book authors Freelancers and to citizen journalists. People who WanNa know you know who's polluting their her neighborhood or or or how much money they're politicians are are taking from monied interests So we actually have a whole program for citizen investigators instigators. We call them. And it's it's it's quite popular. David give us a sense of some of those tools that these journalists around the world are a using and also say secondarily the tools that that investigative journalists US really have changed change. You know it was. It was investigative reporters in the seventies and eighties who began chink running around with IBM mainframe computers. And and using you know what they then called computer assisted reporting to to figure out Trenton in data. this this is now mushroomed into what we call data journalism and I. It's become quite sophisticated We have journalists. Doing essentially social science work doing analyses and and And visualizations of massive amounts of data. And you can see see this. In in recent reports on on how how guns are used in American society and and our our crime rates in In how communications are used and and who spying on on home Other tools include satellite imagery The use of sensors searchers Forensic analysis of video. There's a whole list of tech tools that You know we we do trainings on on That you know it's really Journalism Two oh two this is the advance stuff. And it's it's it's becoming Pretty routine in the field. Now you know you talked talked about be journalists being under fire right now through various means so do you teach journalists how to deal with Those kinds of of risk and attacks like that We sure do safety. Insecurity have really risen to the top among among areas that that Our our community is concerned with I think we had a A headstart With the Tech and information revolutions and and and You know figuring out how to collaborate across borders figuring out how to Do Data Analysis and and and And communicate effectively with our colleagues around the world. You know the bad guys went international longtime ago and the good guys are finally.
