Highlighting Threat From Red China, US Launches Committee
From the Epoch Times
The coalition, called the Committee on the Present Danger: China, includes former Clinton administration CIA Director R. James Woolsey, former Reagan Education Secretary William Bennett, former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), former Strategic Defense Initiative Director Ambassador Henry Cooper, and Chinese dissident and China Aid President Bob Fu.
According to the committee’s chairman, former Claremont Institute President Brian Kennedy, the initiative is a “wholly independent and nonpartisan effort to educate American citizens and policymakers about the existential threat presented by the People’s Republic of China [PRC] under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party.”
More specifically, “[its] purpose is to explain these threats, which range from the military buildup of the PRC, their active information and political warfare that targets the American people and our business, political, and media elites, their cyber warfare, and their economic warfare,” said Kennedy.
The original Committee on the Present Danger (CPD) “was formed in 1950 as a bipartisan education and advocacy organization to build a national consensus behind President Truman’s policy of ‘containment’ against Soviet expansionism,” according to its official website.
