TRUTH PUKE’S TAKE: In breaking news, a member of the Massachusetts Air National Guard has been arrested in connection with the leaking of classified documents that were posted online.
Attorney General Merrick Garland made the announcement on Thursday following a fast-moving search by the US government for the identity of the Pentagon leaker who posted classified documents to a social media platform popular with video gamers.
Jack Teixeira, 21, was arrested in Massachusetts without incident and will be arraigned in federal court there. Teixeira is believed to be the leader of the online group where a trove of classified documents had been posted, including detailed US intelligence assessments of allies and adversaries alike, including on the state of the war in Ukraine and the challenges Kyiv and Moscow face as the war appears stuck in a stalemate.
The Pentagon has begun to limit who across the government receives its highly classified daily intelligence briefs following the leak, and Press Secretary Ryder emphasized that there are already stringent guidelines in place to safeguard classified intelligence.
The investigation is ongoing, and more information will be shared at the appropriate time.
