Inside the Pentagon 

Gen. James Cartwright, the top U.S. military officer in charge of
operations in space, says the United States has not seen clear
indications that China has intentionally disrupted American satellite
capabilities.

In an interview last month, Inside the Pentagon asked the U.S.
Strategic Command chief about allegations made by some uniformed
officials and civilian experts that the Chinese military in recent
years has tested the means to harm or destroy American satellites.

"Your [question pertains] to someone actually with intent interfering
out there," Cartwright said during the Sept. 21 Pentagon interview.
"And we really haven't seen that."
