Secrets of the Pentagon revealed…again

Panic in Washington. The Department of Justice launches an investigation after classified Pentagon documents, troubling the United States, are published online.

The Biden administration is striving to reassure its allies of its ability to protect its secrets and theirs. But it’s still not a WikiLeaks duplicate.

Documents reveal that Americans are spying on their friends, including Ukraine. The article highlights the weaknesses of the Ukrainian and Russian armies.

The documents were first published as-is before they were tampered with to minimize the number of dead and wounded Russians in Ukraine.

It also reveals that Egypt, one of the closest allies of the United States in the Middle East, had intended last month to secretly sell missiles and artillery shells to Russia. Cairo receives $1.3 billion in military aid from Washington each year.

In South Korea, leaked documents show the United States spying on the country’s top national security officials. The report also stated that the Israeli intelligence service “Mossad” issued “explicit calls to action” from its agents to counter Prime Minister Netanyahu’s plan for judicial reform.

In Canada, the leak claims that Russian hackers have damaged the natural gas distribution network. But there is no indication of this happening. In 2021, a ransomware attack forces the largest pipeline network in the United States to cease operations.

Who betrayed the United States?

What clues can help investigators identify potential suspects?

Russia, like top Pentagon officials, appears to have only recently learned of the information disclosure, even though the images have been on the social media messaging platform Discord for weeks.

The confidential documents were awkwardly photographed with the phone’s camera and then uploaded. an amateur suggests.

Why put them on Discord? Initially designed as a platform for video game enthusiasts, the site is also popular with the American alt-right, particularly due to the anonymity and confidentiality it provides. And so Discord was used to organize the neo-Nazi and white supremacist rally that sparked the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

Suspicion would therefore be directed at an online video game enthusiast — and therefore relatively young — who sympathizes with the alt-right and wants to embarrass the Biden administration. The individual, a civil servant or military member, will have the security clearances required to reference documents. Elementary Dear Watson!
