In the first interview after leaving the U.S. Department of Defense, Nicholas Chailan stated that the U.S. has failed (very well) to respond to China’s cyber and other threats, which puts his children’s future at risk.

It doesn’t matter whether there is (for this) a war or not.” He said, “There are good reasons to be angry.”
Chai Lan served in the Pentagon for three years, participating in work aimed at enhancing cyber security, and serving as the first chief software officer of the US Air Force. He said that due to advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and network capabilities, Beijing is moving toward global dominance.
