Rear Adm. Paul Becker, director for intelligence on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says the U.S. must increase its understanding of China’s strategy, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Colin Clark writes that Becker has pointed to China’s objectives, campaigns and overarching strategy as key to support intelligence decision-makers.

Becker, who spoke at the recent Intelligence and National Security Summit in Washington, has also expressed concern over what he sees as a current lack of notable intelligence experts, the report said.

Clark notes that Becker has cited known former intelligence analysts such as Edwin Layton, Vernon Walters and Bobby Ray Inman as key figures in the field.
