When I first started investigating China’s top spy agency in 2020 for my book, “Spies and Lies: How China’s Greatest Covert Operations Fooled the World,” I thought espionage was its main game.
In October, the Justice Department charged 13 people with plotting to covertly advance China’s interests in the United States.
Several of those charged are allegedly officers of China’s Ministry of State Security.
I soon realized that the Ministry of State Security’s covert influence operations have been at the forefront of its work to shape the world.
Many countries, including the United States, are working to combat espionage but lack laws suited to tackling covert influence operations.
