Jason Matthews, former CIA chief and author of the Red Sparrow book trilogy (soon to hit the screen starring Jennifer Lawrence as an undercover Russian spy), joined Armstrong & Getty to share his thoughts regarding the states of three of our adversaries — Russia, China and North Korea — and their roles in influencing the opinions of Americans.

Matthews gave Armstrong & Getty a closer look at Putin’s disinformation efforts which, although relatively new to the headlines (in retrospect), have been engrained in Russia’s history since 1917, before diving into China’s polished lesser-known operation to infiltrate the US and the unique challenges facing Kim Jong-Un (who is getting some disinformation of his own!).
