OMG Austin Reveals Latest Leak Is Worse Than We May Know [Video]
The Biden administration can’t seem to get a handle on the leaks that have been popping up all over the internet. Just last month, dozens of classified documents relating to the war in Ukraine were found on Discord and Telegram, and it looks like the Pentagon doesn’t have a clue who had access to them.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin admitted during a press conference that they didn’t know which documents were leaked and when, or who had access to them. This is a huge problem because the documents contained sensitive information about perceived weaknesses in Ukraine’s defenses, as well as plans to rebuild their military.
“The documents that we are aware of are dated February 28, March 1. I don’t know if there are other documents that have been online before,” Austin said during a press briefing. “These are things that we will find, find out as we continue to investigate. But the documents that we are focused on thus far, February 28 and March 1. Again, we will continue to investigate and try to determine the full scope of the activity.”
“There were some that were on the web,” Austin said. “Where exactly and who had access at that point, we don’t know. We simply don’t know at this point.”
Even worse, the documents revealed that NATO had a few dozen special operations troops on the ground in the conflict zone, despite past denials of such. This means that the Biden administration has failed in its duty to protect sensitive information and ensure the safety of our troops.
It’s been almost a year since Russia invaded Ukraine and the US has sent over $100 billion in aid to the country. Yet, the Biden administration can’t even keep their shit together when it comes to keeping classified documents from falling into the wrong hands. It’s fucking ridiculous.
Sure, Biden has made some progress in terms of defense spending and providing some military hardware to Ukraine, but it’s not enough. The US needs to be able to protect its secrets and its personnel, and it’s clear that Biden is failing miserably at this task.
It’s time for Biden to get serious about the security of classified information. He needs to crack down on leaks and ensure that the Pentagon is taking all necessary measures to protect sensitive data. Otherwise, we’re just throwing money down the drain.
