ABSTRACT

Developments in China's Cyber and Nuclear Capabilities, Hearing Before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, Second Session, March 26, 2012   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the opening statement of Jeffrey Fiedler: "We have some excellent witnesses joining us today to provide testimony about China's evolving strategic capabilities. Before we begin today's panels, we're honored to receive opening remarks from former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and current Harold Brown Chair in Defense Policy Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. General James Cartwright. Welcome, General. General Cartwright really needs no introduction. However, I'd like to note that this is his second appearance before the Commission. I think it's fair to say that his first testimony back in 2007, while serving as head of U.S. Strategic Command, was an inflection point for the Commission's work on cyber. Over these past five years, we've placed greater and greater emphasis on cyber-related issues, a trend we continue with today's hearing. It's clear that the General's impact on the U.S. military was the same even as he divided his time among issues ranging from missile defense to the war in Afghanistan." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James Cartwright, Richard Bejtlich, Nart Villeneuve, Jason Healey, Frank Wolf, Henry Sokolski, Phillip A. Karber, Mark Schneider, Phillip C. Saunders, and Mark Stokes.
