Ex-CIA staffer claims that 'Christian, white men' are primed to start a civil war in America

A California professor and former CIA analyst said that white Christian men are poised to start a civil war in America

Barbara F. Walter, author of the 2022 book How Civil War Starts, made her inflammatory comments on PBS Tuesday evening while speaking with anchor Hari Sreenivasan.

Walter's remarks come just days before the midterm elections, which the left and right alike have been characterizing as a battle over democracy itself.

Sreenivasan asked Walter - who said she studied foreign nations on the brink of civil war for the CIA - how far off a war within the US could be.
