The commission responsible for evaluating the activities of the American intelligence agencies believes that they are no longer up to the task of China. According to her, too much financial resources have been devoted to the Middle East.
The American intelligence services are completely overwhelmed by their Chinese counterparts on the strategic, political and military levels.

The House Intelligence Committee attributes the downgrading of US intelligence to a major strategic error. After the attacks of September 11, Washington redirected all its financial and technological resources towards counterterrorism and military interventions in the Middle East.

According to the commission, the political and economic influence of the United States is threatened in several parts of the world, and especially in Asia. Its members recommend training analysts and spies specializing in Chinese affairs as soon as possible to help US leaders regain control of the world. “The stakes are huge and at the moment we are unable to understand and predict Beijing's intentions. A misunderstanding that will have serious consequences for the United States, ”warns Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
The elected Democrat still wants to be optimistic: "We still have time to adapt and launch reforms to improve and rethink our intelligence services". The members of the commission also believe that the CiA must take a more aggressive stance towards China to better protect American companies from industrial espionage, especially in the tech world. The notorious intelligence agency should also be concerned about the possible influence exerted by the People's Republic over high-ranking American politicians, the report's authors argue. Finally, they urge the intelligence services to disseminate anti-Xi Jinping propaganda - seen as too diplomatically aggressive - in order to slow down Chinese imperialism in the South China Sea or towards Taiwan and Hong Kong.
