21st century style.

quote:
Two years into office, President Donald Trump authorized the Central Intelligence Agency to launch a clandestine campaign on Chinese social media aimed at turning public opinion in China against its government, according to former U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the highly classified operation.

Three former officials told Reuters that the CIA created a small team of operatives who used bogus internet identities to spread negative narratives about Xi Jinping’s government while leaking disparaging intelligence to overseas news outlets. The effort, which began in 2019, has not been previously reported.

During the past decade, China has rapidly expanded its global footprint, forging military pacts, trade deals, and business partnerships with developing nations.

I'm trying to reason why this is/was a bad idea.

I don't think it's a bad idea. I would have been disappointed and surprised as hell if they weren't doing stuff like this. I'm just wondering about the timing. There has to be a reason they decided to talk now. Sending a message to Xi...
