Hosted by Ying Ma, Friends and Foes of Liberty proudly presents its first episode, “Don’t Take China’s Money?!” The episode features a lively interview with Dr. Stephen Bryen, a former senior Department of Defense official, about the national security risks of Chinese foreign direct investment in America.
Find out why Dr. Bryen opposes Chinese acquisition of U.S. telecom networks but supports a Chinese wind farm company that appears to have fallen victim to the Obama administration’s election-year politics.
Dr. Bryen is the President and CEO of Ziklag Systems and the President and CEO of SDB Partners. He has 40 years of experience working in national security and industry, and has previously served as a senior staff director of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, as an Undersecretary of Defense for Trade Security Policy in the Reagan administration, and as the President of the North America operations of Finmeccanica, one of the world’s top ten global players in aerospace, defense and security. Dr. Bryen is also a former commissioner of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a congressional entity established to examine the national security implications of U.S.-trade with China.
