Former CIA Boss Talks China War Threat (Part 1) - Mo News Interview

How close are we to a potential military conflict between China and Taiwan? Tensions are high with the Chinese conducting live weapons drills and practicing a potential invasion. It all comes in the aftermath of US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  

Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell joins Mosheh for a conversation to discuss why he is extremely concerned about a Chinese invasion in the coming years, the role the US might play, the state of the US-China relationship and why the Pelosi visit may have been a major mistake. 

It is the first part of a three episode series with Morell-- looking into some of the biggest challenges and threats facing the US. Upcoming weeks will delve into Afghanistan and the state of the terror threat, as well as an episode going into Putin’s mindset as the war in Ukraine approaches the six month mark.
