Pentagon Leak: Disinfo op?

“The Pentagon ‘leak’ could have been deliberately orchestrated to force the removal of US President Joe Biden and/or to expand the power of the US government to regulate anything posted on the Internet, Larry Johnson, retired CIA intelligence officer and ex-State Department official, told Sputnik.

“Twenty-one-year-old Airman 1st Class Jack Teixeira … was charged with unauthorized retention and transmission of national defense information and unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents.

“In an affidavit accompanying the charges, an FBI special agent revealed that Teixeira had security clearance for the highest level of classification, ‘top secret/sensitive compartmentalized information’ (TS/SCI).

“‘It’s not normal. It’s not typical. It’s not easy, particularly for a member of the National Guard [to gain this level of clearance],’ Larry Johnson, a veteran of the CIA and the State Department’s Office of Counter Terrorism, who provided training to the US Military’s Special Operations task force for 24 years, told Sputnik.

“‘So, this is very unusual and strange. The thing that captures my attention is that the individual was part of the Air Force unit that’s involved with information warfare. At that age and at that low rank the possibilities that he would have unlimited access to highly classified material is just extremely unlikely’ …

“One might ask why the leak was needed. According to the CIA veteran, those who he claimed tricked Teixeira may have sought to kill several birds with one stone: to smear MAGA conservatives, justify new Internet restrictions and remove Joe Biden from the Oval Office.



“Thus, Teixeira was immediately described as a right winger, as an anti-Semite, as a racist, a gun lover and a religious extremist: he ‘checks all the boxes’ routinely smeared by the US mainstream press. 

"As Johnson wittily remarked in his blog earlier in the day, ‘the only thing lacking is that the fellow, Jack Texeira, was not wearing a MAGA cap.’

“‘There’s current legislation being proposed that would not only ban Tik-Tok, but would expand the power of the US government to regulate anything posted on the Internet. So this could be an act designed to help create political support for that kind of authoritarian crackdown on information, a complete violation of the First Amendment.

“‘Another possibility is that disclosure of these documents is designed to embarrass the Biden administration, ultimately forcing the removal of Joe Biden,’ the CIA veteran suggested.

“Another thing that set alarm bells ringing for Johnson was Bellingcat, which is characterized by the former State Department official as ‘an Open Source Intelligence outfit that has been funded by US and British intelligence.’

It was Bellingcat that allegedly managed to trace the ‘leak’ to a Discord server called ‘WowMao,’ which seemed to have been sourced from the Thug Shaker Central channel. The story about ‘leaked Pentagon files’ was also picked up by the New York Times and the Washington Post …

“‘That’s why I think it’s a disinformation operation,’ Johnson said. ‘Bellingcat has been funded by both MI6 and the CIA and has worked really as what they call an open source intelligence operation. And it has been used as an intelligence entity. And several of the reporters who were involved, both writing for The New York Times, had previously worked with Bellingcat.

“‘The timing of this is just very unusual, that all of a sudden it’s just discovered and the documents that are being leaked are very precisely focused on Ukraine, the conflict with Ukraine and Russia’s activities in Ukraine.’


“The 21-year old appears to be more of a convenient scapegoat rather than a ‘hero’ according to Johnson.

“The former CIA analyst does not rule out that Teixeira will be punished alone – akin to William Calley in the My Lai Massacre case – while his chain of command will be let off the hook. ‘I don’t think he had any clear purpose for what he was doing,’ said the CIA veteran …

“Touching upon the timing of the ‘leak’ the CIA veteran suggested that ‘elements in the intelligence community’ have eventually ‘recognized that the prospects for Ukraine in the war with Russia are bleak and hurting and getting more dismal by the day so that Russia is going to prevail and Ukraine is going to lose.’

“‘And that has really created some great consternation within elements of the intelligence community,’ he concluded …

Unaffordable food prices. Blame the murderous US government and its Quisling UK/EU faux leaders.

Which magazine
"Why are food prices rising?

Prices for feed, fertiliser and fuel, which are all needed to produce food and drink, have risen dramatically due to the war in Ukraine. This has been coupled with the knock-on effects of disruption during the pandemic as well as spiralling energy and labour costs. "
