It seems like the Biden administration allows foreign military efforts to grow and succeed more than it protects and supports the United States military. Whether it’s Afghanistan or China, it seems like we keep getting reports of equipment and intelligence belonging to America ending up in the hands of our enemies.
“U.S. security officials estimate that the Chinese steal between $300 billion and $600 billion a year in U.S. intellectual property, research and development, information and technology,” former CIA officer David Sauer said.
China is using stolen American technology “to build a military that can defeat ours,” said Sauer.
“China is stealing that information and then integrating into their economy and their state-owned enterprises, into their military,” Sauer said. “Some of their military systems look like a carbon copy of U.S. military systems.”
“It really saves them a lot of time, sweat, and tears in trying to develop that technology,” said Sauer.
Sauer added, “the reality is that China is using our technology and innovation to build its rise and to build a military that can defeat ours.”
