The Shadow War: A Conversation with CNN's Jim Sciutto

Jim Sciutto, Anchor and Chief National Security Correspondent, CNN. Moderated by Brian Hanson.

The United States is currently under attack, but not in a way that most Americans would recognize. Traditionally associated with military confrontation and territorial claims, war today is a covert and continuous struggle, taking place simultaneously across the realms of cyberspace, outer space, social media, and global markets, in addition to military strategy. America’s well-known competitors and adversaries—China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia—are quickly adapting to this new battlefield, challenging the United States’ global dominance in an unfamiliar and clandestine form of combat. If this is the modern face of war, how should the United States fight?

Guests with a copy of Jim Sciutto’s latest book, The Shadow War: Inside Russia's and China's Secret Operations to Defeat America, will have the opportunity to get their book signed following the program.
