The article "Spycraft and Statecraft" by William J. Burns, published in Foreign Affairs on January 30, 2024, discusses the evolution of espionage and its integral role in statecraft¹.


Burns highlights that espionage has been a part of statecraft for as long as countries have kept secrets from one another¹. He traces the history of espionage from the Revolutionary War, where spies used ciphers, clandestine courier networks, and invisible ink, to World War II, where signals intelligence helped uncover Japanese war plans¹.


He also discusses the transformation of intelligence capabilities during the early Cold War with the advent of high-altitude spy planes like the U-2, which could photograph Soviet military installations with impressive clarity¹.


Burns emphasizes that the defining test for intelligence has always been to anticipate and help policymakers navigate profound shifts in the international landscape¹. He mentions that the United States faces one of those rare moments today, as consequential as the dawn of the Cold War or the post-9/11 period¹.


The rise of China, Russia's revanchism, and existential climate threats pose daunting geopolitical challenges in a world of intense strategic competition¹. Complicating matters further is a revolution in technology even more sweeping than the Industrial Revolution or the beginning of the nuclear age¹.


Burns concludes that to be an effective twenty-first-century intelligence service, the CIA must blend a mastery of emerging technologies with the people-to-people skills and individual daring that have always been at the heart of the profession¹.
