The U.S. Intelligence Community has played a critical role in predicting Putin’s invasion and countering Moscow’s disinformation campaign as the Biden administration purposefully released intelligence on the Kremlin’s plans and troop movements leading up to the invasion.

Join Aaron David Miller as he sits down with Beth Sanner, the deputy director of national intelligence for mission integration, to discuss these and other issues.
