US intelligence can get as politically biased as they can depending on if the POTUS is Dems or Rep.
When Obama/DEMS was the POTUS , US Estb whole heartedly accepted
>>Peaceful Rise of China
>>China as the next superpower as mentioned by their Joint Chief of Staff on visit to China with the clause of Great responsibilities comes with Great Power.
>> China would be Manuf Superpower , US would be Service superpower
>> China rise can be managed and is beneficial to the US.
>> All Chinese Military Spying including JSF and so many others were swept under the carpet , No Media Tamasha which would for any other country would invite first class sanctions
>> All Economic Espionage was swept under carpet as talks will china would solve it
>> Iran JCPOA was a Great Deal of Century
>> Israel concerns was completely ignored.
>> Russia was the main Threat to US and needs to be contained , China can be Managed
That was the MSM Punchline for the 8 years of Obama , Their DNI James Clapper and CIA Chief wont even mention China as threat except when asked or as passing statement , Russia was their source of problem for every thing.
Come Trump/Rep to Power with new CIA and FBI Chief
1 ) China is the main enemy of the US , It spies on all the states.
2 ) Military Espionage and Economic Espionage are not to be taken lightly
3 ) All out Trade war with China on Tarrif
4 ) Chinese COmpanies in US are National Security Threat
5 ) IRAN/JCPOA as the worst deal of Century
6 ) Israel concerns takes preceident over every thing to the extent of getting out of JCPOA
7 ) Russia can be managed and worked with and China can be contained.
Botton Line their Intel Chief from all agency will parrot their political lines , All they need to say is they have "High Confidence" in the Intel report to support their claim , Dems are Pro-China and Anti-Russia , While Rep are Anti-China & pro - Russia.
So which country is the enemy boils down to which party is in power , The intel report and DIA report will be managed accordingly to suite the needs of the circumstances
