look at how china spies on the united states. but first, america's military success depends on sophisticated communications networks for targeting intelligence, logistics, medical treatment and soon battlefield cell phone networks. that dependence on the electronic spectrum is also an well known american vulnerability that insurgent nents in iraq and afghanistan have exploited. the charge for the electronic warfare specialist is how to collect intelligence on enemy networks and jam t?fthem if necessary without interfering with frcommunications. the man working through these tough problems is kucial jim ekfall who joins me today. sir, welcome to the show. >> vago, thank you very much. i appreciate the opportunity to be here. >> let's start out, it's an incredibly crowded spectrum, increasingly more so, our enemies are figuring out how to kink us whenever possible and how do you deal with an increasing volume? >> electro magnetic spectrum is both contested and congested. the enemy can use it as well as everyone. our goal, of course, is to allow that maneuver commander or that med

commercial gain is acceptable. case, china has not attempted to justify the allegation, instead, they deny them. this has been a consistent response. over a year ago, the chinese government flatly denied reports that unit 61398 was hacking u.s. companies. a spokesman for china's ministry of national defense said chinese military forces have never supported any hacking activities. china also challenged the united states to present hard evidence, evidence i could stand up in againstat cyber attacks american targets are connected to the chinese military. well, we did. the response? hours after monday's announcement, the chinese foreign ministry's cause the accusations tuesday losers and absurd. we are confident that we have the evidence to back up these is the depositions in a court of law. league indictment. it is particular. for the first time, we haven't closed the real faces and names line between boards in shanghai used to steal from american businesses. thatis not conduct responsible nations within the global economic community should tolerate. states, we believe that individuals i

able to help. >> days after china and russia said they would ratchet up pressure on iran over its nuclear program, they announced last week they would build more sites. the obama administration has left the door open to dialogue. despite mounting pressure, iran continues to develop its nuclear program. our next guest is justin logan. justin, welcome to the show. >> thanks very much. >> so what's the solution here? i mean, is glomcy the answer, or is use of force the ultimate answer? >> i think that the american way of glomcy is a lot like the american way of war. we like clean decisive results, we like to use our power zisively, and in a lot of cases, this one being particular case, that isn't the way it works. there's a constant back and forth, and a lot of people have concluded that the iran yan regime is posturing about this claim with ten new plants that would take years if not decades to bring any materials to the fore. so the obama administration has worked very hard to try to herd together this international coalition, and the iranians have said that they are going to try t

and syria. from iran's nuclear ambitions to china's territorial expansion rupture's belligerence, and the growing -- russia's deliverance and the growing threat of the islamic state. this underscores the importance of providing for our military a strong and capable defense. president reagan said it best with his principle of peace through strength. it remains as true today as it was 35 years ago. but as we all know, sometimes deterrence is not enough and americans are called to act. providing the men and women of our military with the training and resources that they need. increases their ability to complete the assigned mission and safely return home. unfortunately, too many of our service members pay the ultimate sacrifice. from natural disasters to war-torn nations, the united states has rapidly deployed to help those facing danger. this past month, one of our own nebraskans gave his life while searching for victims of the massive earthquake in nepal. captain dustin of wilcox nebraska was a marine corps helicopter pilot who flew that helicopter that disappeared during the disa

if this policy goes into effect. and let's say you'll like to have similar access for china. and are you sympathetic that this might put them in more of a political or diplomatic role. >> i think it's a very political discussion. the question is how might we enable law enforcement to do its job. they want to try to do their job, too. that is a huge policy discussion. how are we able to limit that? that brings up how we might see ourselves in the future. by doing business in this country, does that mean that you're subject to certain rules and laws? >> are you concerned if they do, they can affect people's overall ability to communicate securely? >> sure. i think any country with poor human rights records that's why we have the laws in place that protects from that. but that is certainly a concern. and, again, it goes back to the policy discussion about how are we able to discern between countries with poor human rights records and countries who don't have thattish sue. and who will be subject to what laws. >> i do just want to ask you one more question. you mentioned how the number o

world, you have isis, and a much more energetic russia and china, but that is the fundamental question , if your data is more secure, are we better off as a nation? that is the position the administration took. i'm not a big fan of backdoors. one of the reasons we decided against it the last time, was that the believe that any backdoor that we built would be found by someone else and used by them -- you do kind of compromise security with it. but, no doubt, there is a problem for fbi and there is a problem for law enforcement when you use strong encryption. it is just a heart issue. i would not see this as the end of the debate. host: when you think about cybersecurity and some of the threats that the government or private industries face, are we thinking about the right things? james: no. that is the good news. because, people are beginning to realize that there is still -- thate still sort of shaped i can defend my network. i can do whatever it takes to make my network hard to hack. you can make your network harder to have, but you cannot make it on hakuba. you cannot protect network

, china is against using the existence of the large scale violence in the dprk to include this in the agenda of the security council. the u.n. charter stimulates explicitly that the primary responsibility of the security council is to maintain international peace and security. various u.n. organs have their respected functions and division of labor. the security council is not the forum to get involved in human rights issues and still less should the human rights issue be politicized. currently, we are faced with numerous forms and challenges. the security council should strictly abide by its responsibilities and concentrate on addressing issues which concern international peace and security. the situation on the korean peninsula remains complex and sensitive. opposing the goal of denuclearization, maintaining peace and stability and insisting on dialogue and consultations as a way to solve issues, these are in the interest of all parties concerned and should be direction toward which all parties should work together. the security council should work more to facilitate dialogue and ea

really hurts low income countries. middle income countries like china, they have got a lot of injustice because of what is not covered. yet in some ways because they are more open-minded they are trying different things. there will be good examples to come out of those countries, that even the rich countries should look at. the idea, what are the job categories, how do you measure outcomes? there are a lot of vibrancy there. high income countries are facing the same rate of increase, although we managed to be at a starting point of about 1.5 times worse than everyone else. i got pulled into health not because it is a big foundation priority, but at the state budget level where you have to or at least pretend the balance on a yearly basis there aren't some projects having to do with pensions that if they were in the private sector would be considered out and out fraud. because they have to pretend to balance, it education that gets hurt and for our foundation, that is the big doe mostic focus is the education system. ironically, in the last 15 years, a lot of additional money w

fake i.d.'s from china. i wrote you a letter in august, you may remember, about companies in china that produced exact replicas of driver's licenses from various states for sale to people who might be terrorists, and illegal immigrants, or primarily underage teenagers trying to drink illegally. these licenses are very well done, with the bar code and everything else. very hard for the person at the bar or wherever else to actually detect they are false. sometimes you can detect it by a false address but they usually give and out of state address. -- an out of state one. if a new york bar in syracuse get a driver's license that says altoona, pennsylvania, he has no idea there is no 123 elm street there. last week western union gave me good news by agreeing to work with the dhs to refuse payment to businesses whom you indicate -- when you indicate to them that are providing fake i.d.'s from china. this is the only way to cut it off, if they don't allow them to wire money, that is what they do. western union took a big step forward. despite this accomplishment, the work is not done. h

kind of leaking to the press was the same as giving something to china. also, that you are supposed to be monitoring your fellow employees, kind of the "1984" thing, that if you see any signs of leaking documents or being unstable, you are required to report that. you can get in trouble for not reporting that somebody else's doing that you may find suspicious. that is unprecedented in american history. we do not yet know what its effect is, but it happens to be chilling. >> it seems to be having a chilling impact already on day to day routine business. these sorts of work that journalists in this town do every day, that in many cases has nothing to do with top- secret or material classified at a lower level, or any thinking to with national security matters. simply calling up an official in this administration, in the white house or cabinet agency, and wanting to have a discussion about a subject that perhaps a senior official has spoken about publicly the day before is the sort of thing that is now routinely, commonly, government employees will refuse to engage. not just on the record

sanctions are unlikely to be affected because countries like russia and china will probably undercut them. military strikes could lead to a major war with iran. the u.s. needs to try to strengthen the nonproliferation system which appears to be unraveling. the key to this effort will be to stop countries using nuclear activities to require the -- acquire the plutonium needed for nuclear weapons. the u.s. needs them to clarify what facilities it can effectively safeguard and which it cannot. a negotiated agreement with iran that legitimizes its enrichment program would be a step in the wrong direction. thank you. >> thank you, mr. jones. mr. heinonen. >> thank you very much for inviting me to address this hearing. i will concentrate on my remarks on the aspects of this deal, which was concluded on the 20 of november. highlight some of the implications and make some minor proposals for the way forward. the agreement is a small but important step forward which after a long delay could start on 20 of january. under this deal, iran continues to produce low-energy uranium. maintain centrifuge p

. citing government sources he said that at least two of the attacks may have come from iran. china and russia we know have also launched cyberattacks. to respond to this escalating threat, the chairman and i have worked during the past two years to craft a bipartisan bill that relies on the expertise of government and the innovation of the private sector. despite our hard work to find common ground, the senate has failed to pass cybersecurity legislation. given the significant damage already done to our economy and our security, as well as our clear vulnerability to even worse attacks, this failure to act is inexcusable. former d.h.s. secretary, michael chertoff, and former n.s.a. and c.i.a. chief michael haden described the urgency this way. we carry the burden of knowing that 9/11 might have been averted with the intelligence that existed at the time. we do not want to be in the same position again when a cyber9/11 hits. it is not a question of whether this will happen, it is the question of when. this time all the dots have been connected. this time the warnings are loud and cle

best collection of china policy scholars in the united states, it might be here in universities and around the world. this is an extraordinary group of people, including the director, and his predecessor directors, two of whom i see in the audience. it is a great group. we are delighted for them hosting this event. and the hospitality they showed to me and my family two years ago when i spent three months traveling through china in preparation for a book. we are celebrating a major -- not just transition, but transformational event of 35 years ago. and today, we are really blessed and honored to have two transformational figures in this sport that we hold very dear. in 1979, ping-pong gave way to basketball. after the ping-pong exchanges, they were basketball exchanges that followed. i think cheng li touched upon the fact that basketball is the second most popular sport in china, behind ping-pong. it dates back to the late 1800s when the missionaries that founded basketball in america through the ymca took it all around the world. and in china, it took hold. and a hold was so great

put out one year ago about challenges in china and russia. i believe you stated last year that you thought that the effect cyber attacks on america had an estimated cost close to $300 billion in economic damage. that is damage in terms of direct attack, and i also think that we see time and again cases where intellectual property is taken. people can enter the marketplace, leapfrogging over research and design, because the y steal our intellectual capital. we have seen a series of committees looking at some of the data breaches. we are talking about 70 million potential loss of data with target alone. they were disproportionately ill equipped. this is an indication that industry by industry, these attackers can find the weakest link and even companies who are doing the right thing, their colleagues in the industry are not keeping up to the standards set and there is a challenge. is there a higher number in terms of the economic threat, the intellectual capital threat, or the personal information threat posed by these cyber activities? >> i think it is almost incalculable to figure

united it, but we have to get china to work with us. it is going to be a global issue, global standards as we relate to cyber if we want to protect ourselves. >> you're going to be happy for the next one. on twitter, yesterday was also the one-year anniversary of the tragic attack on benghazi. the question, when are the american people going to hear from those people who were at the benghazi conflict? >> hear from the employees? >> the people who were there on the ground. >> we have in our committee, we are doing the intelligence of that investigation. we have had our 10th hearing. we have talked to all but three on the ground. we are still working through those issues. for those who are looking for some -- we tracked down every lead that we heard. every story that you read in the newspaper about something that, we run all of those to the ground thoroughly with our investigators. now, we have got it narrowed down, that there are some indicating that the time frames that their headquarters is giving might be different than the timeframe that the folks on the ground are giving. we are try

members of the un security council. united states, britain, france, russia, china and germany. host: a lot of questions if we can trust the running your later. what is the answer? guest: so far so good. they have carried out all their obligations under the nuclear deal. i think the problem and the confusion comes from the fact that there are other issues we disagree with the iranians about. the opponents are focused on those areas and you give about the actual nuclear aspect. host: this is from washington for the inspectors, they are pretty well stretched. who is involved in the inspection and how do we quantify that iran is living up to its agreement? unprecedented verification and monitoring mechanisms. we have the international atomic energy agency. it is the one responsible for the monitoring. the united states contribute over $200 million a year to this organization. they have people on the ground 24/7 monitoring all of iran's declared nuclear facilities. uranium mines, centrifuge factories, the sites where uranium enrichment is still continuing. it is a lot of work. thi

in congress. this is flagrant. it defies the spirit of the law we passed. now we know that china russia, venezuela voted to approve this. they will vote to lift the u.s. sanctions. the only power we have left to override the president's veto, and groups like aipac who i have met with the past several days who have to appeal to democrats, this is a bad deal. that is the only way that this whole process can be stopped. why does it need to be stopped? it allows them to continue their nuclear weapons program. that is not why we passed the sanctions over the last decade. we passed the sanctions to dismantle their nuclear capability. the idea that it is for peaceful, energy purposes is laughable. the icbm capability can continue to go forward. you develop that to deliver a nuclear warhead. it will start a middle east arms race. when i was in saudi, they said, why are you negotiating with iran? our allies are confused and do not know if they are still allies. they are strongly opposed to this. now we see a nuclear arms race in the middle east, egypt will look at it, turkey. lastly, hund

making friends for us and we are not borrowing money from china. that's the kind of thing that makes sense. that's the kind of thing we also should be doing in south and central america so that they won't feel the need to come here. the other thing we need to be isnking about in that regard sealing our borders. the fact of the matter is, having gone down there recently and looked at how -- anybody could get through there. the fences they have would barely slow me down when i was a kid. there's no border guards. the border guards are all 70 miles inland. why are they called border guards if they are not on the border? and when they capture people, ice tells them to release them. a lot of those people are not from honduras and mexico. somalia from iraq and and russia and many of them are hardened criminals. it seems like our federal government is actually fighting against the sheriff's and these people who are down there and look in -- i sat with some of the families and they told me the horror stories about how frightening it was. they are some incredibly brave americans to do that. w

countries like china for locking people up without charges, not having access to lawyers, so forth and so on, and what was going to be the rule of law relative to these new challenges because our system of criminal justice in the country was basically on the notion that we would rather somebody guilty go free than someone innocent be convicted right? so we kind of lean on protecting people's rights and due process. but terrorism is a different situation because you try to prevent the incident and the first place. i don't vary much by an to the notion of political correctness. i think we have an issue out around constitutional correctness, when you have an american citizen that questions whether they can listen to or read something or associate themselves in some grouping. it is pretty clear in the constitution those things are protected. and then there is a set of actions that are of concern. now, this question of radicalization is not new in the military. there have been any number of groups the fbi has to be concerned about, attempting to either get members train to the military or to r

. >> hi. you are heading to china next month for the strategic dialogue for the economic relationship, and i would like to ask, against the backdrop of slowing global growth, china's increasing clout, and the u.s.' slight pivot toward a harder line toward china, what are the challenges you think the u.s. faces in regards to this relationship over the course of the next year? mr. lew: i think that the u.s.-china relationship -- i will limit myself to discussing the economic relationship -- but the u.s.-china economic relationship is one of the most important economic relationships in the world. we are the two largest economies in the world. the global economy will do well if we do well. it will suffer if we suffer. we have made clear in our dealings with china that they have to take steps that are good for china, but also good for the global economy, that there is a responsibility that comes with being one of the two largest economies in the world. i think we have made progress in the economic discussions, but we have a lot more progress to make. i believe that the chinese economic policyma

, synthetic drugs are largely developed outside the united states, in china, and smuggled into the country through the mail or across the border with mexico. reports indicate the profits are often traceable back to the middle east. we need to take a long look if law enforcement has the tools needed to protect the public from the synthetics. this committee acted to cleared the traffickers -- since then it is clear they are outpacing us. testifying before the senate caucus on narcotics cantrol, this committee acted by passing my bill, the david mitchell rogza act. the bill placed a series of synthetic can have annoyance and other analogs on schedule one. it also extend the time for which a substance can be temporarily scheduled by the da to protect the public. the bill became law as part of the synthetic drug abuse prevention act. this is an important step to protect young people. calls the poison control centers began to level off or decline for a time. in march 2011, the da has used temporary scheduling authority to place 35 synthetic drugs on schedule one. clearly, the threat pose

put massive pressure on president assad have been met with opposition by china and russia. they vetoed a proposal to establish a syrian-led transition to a democratic political system. the u.n. general assembly voted overwhelmingly to condemn the regime's googled use of force against civilians. last week, the friends of syria, secretary clinton, and leaders from more than 60 other countries came together in the home of the first arab spring uprising to force a way forward in syria, including a call for the regime to end the violence, withdraw its forces from cities and towns, and to assure unhindered access by monitors. the work of the syrian national council was praised and they laid the groundwork for a political transition. they agreed to continue to ratchet up the pressure on the assad family and its supporters. there was a robust dialogue about whether there is a feasible way -- if the international community continues to search for an avenue, there are a number of questions that we must ask about the nature of the conflict in syria. what is the makeup of the syrian opposition? wo

rose and prospered. and now, today, india and china rise and prosper. all this has been welcomed by the united states. but none of this was a foregone conclusion when you consider where asia was at the end of world war ii. while the asian political and economic miracle was realized, first and foremost, by the hard work and talent of the asian people themselves, it was enabled by the enduring principles that the united states has stood for in the region, and also by american military power. these principles we stood for have included a commitment to free and open commerce, a just international order that emphasizes rights and responsibilities of nations and fidelity to the rule of law, civilian control of the military, open access, by all, to the shared domains of sea, air, space, and now, cyberspace, and the principle of resolving conflict without the use of force. in addition to these principles, it was also enabled by the pivotal role of u. s. military power and presence in the region. we believe that our strong security presence in the asia- pacific has provided a critical foundation

cannot beat trade, china, mexico, they think we are stupid. japan, vietnam, india, any nation, name a nation -- they do well. it does not make a difference. they do well, and the more i think about it, the more i realize, they do well for a very specific reason. not that the politicians are so stupid, many of them are, many of them are not, but because politicians take contributions from people representing certain other parts of the world, or companies involved in other parts of the world, and they do things not in your best interest. when i say i am self funding, i have turned down more money, i bet that any human being has turned down for political run. frankly, everybody takes money.

china and anyone else who tries to take advantage of american workers and companies. [applause] secretary clinton: and i am going to ramp up enforcement by appointing for the first time a cheap trade prosecutor. i will triple the number of enforcement officers, and when countries break the rules, we will not hesitate to impose targeted tariffs. [applause] clinton: now, mr. trump may talk of big game on trade but his approach is based on fear, not strength. fear that we cannot compete with the rest of the world, even when rules are fair. fear that our country has no choice but to hide behind walls. if team usa was as fearful as trump, michael phelps and simone biles would be cowering in the locker room afraid to come out to compete.
