This is the March 21, 2018 hearing titled "State and Non-state Actor Influence Operations: Recommendations for U.S. National Security" held before the House Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of William M. 'Mac' Thornberry: "Whether the term used is 'political warfare,' 'influence operations,' 'psycho-cultural warfare,' 'indirect warfare,' 'hybrid warfare,' or one of the many others that have been suggested, it is clear that the United States and our allies are under consistent attack using non-kinetic tactics designed to undermine and weaken us. We know that Russia intervened in a variety of ways to sow dissension during the 2016 election. History and now declassified documents establish that the former Soviet Union had a track record of active measures against NATO's [North Atlantic Treaty Organization's] deployment of intermediate-range missiles in Europe, for example, and those active measures included providing propaganda themes to peace movement groups, as well as organizational expertise, financial resources, forged U.S. military documents." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Philip M. Breedlove, John Garnaut, and Michael D. Lumpkin.
