Media Roots Radio: The Committee on the Present Danger: China, As Dangerous as PNAC (Part 2 of 2)

Posted on by

Robbie Martin breaks down how key neocon figures like Frank Gaffney, Gordon Chang, and James Woolsey from the Committee on the Present Danger: China have taken advantage of the fear in the wake of COVID-19, and how this think tank has a symbiotic relationship with certain GOP elected officials like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton and Trump administration insiders in spreading and pushing anti-Chinese paranoia and propaganda. The history of The Committee on the Present Danger is also explained, like how it once supplied 33 of its own members into the Ronald Reagan administration.
