The U.S. Senate's Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016

Author(s):
U.S. Senate

The U.S. Senate has begun discussing a bill on "countering information warfare". The draft states that "foreign governments, including the Governments of the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China, use disinformation and other propaganda tools to undermine the national security objectives of the United States and key allies and partners", and calls for the creation of a Center for Information Analysis and Response. 

The bill has been referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs.
