Silent War: China is Deadly Serious About Infiltrating America

• arclein

American Universities have been infiltrated by individuals tied to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) through programs like the Thousand Talents Plan (TTP), and the propagandistic Confucious Institutes founded in 2004, which have "largely gone unnoticed" until recently. The TTP program was started in 2008 to make it easier for Chinese academics and entrepreneurs to be educated in the U.S. Participants then return to China to use their training and experience to benefit the CCP. In 2020, Dr. Lieber, Chair of Harvard University's Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department, and two Chinese nationals were charged with espionage and "aiding the People's Republic of China." Lieber received more than $15,000,000 in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense (DOD). He was a "'Strategic Scientist' at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and was a contractual participant in China's Thousand Talents Plan from 2012 to 2017.
