Host: "There has been a lot of fingerpointing about the source of attacks. Can you defend this fingerpointing now that you're out of government?"
Baker: "Well, it's unfortunate but inevitable given the massive scope of the attacks in the last decade. We are used to fingerpointing at the US, but it is striking that China is being accused so widely in places like India and Brazil. There will be an impact on the Chinese economy from these concerns."
