WSJ News Exclusive | Pentagon Investigates More Social-Media Posts Purporting to Include Secret U.S. Documents (is anyone falling for this truckload?) (

The Pentagon said it is reviewing posts on social media that purport to reveal highly classified U.S. government documents on Ukrainian preparations for a planned spring offensive against Russian forces.

“Well over 100 images, marked with “Top Secret” and other classifications indicating they represent highly sensitive U.S.-produced intelligence, were posted in the Discord message board of fans of the Minecraft computer game around March 1. While many of them were deleted recently, open-source intelligence researchers have managed to download more than 60 files.

The documents, which appear to originate from within the U.S. military and intelligence agencies, include details about the disposition of Ukrainian forces, air defenses and military equipment, classified information about arms and support the U.S. has provided to Kyiv in its fight against Russian invaders, and intelligence on internal matters in a variety of nations, including Israel and South Korea.

The Pentagon said Friday night it is reviewing the matter: “The Department of Defense is actively reviewing the matter, and has made a formal referral to the Department of Justice for investigation,” Pentagon deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh said.”

If this information is out there, it is disinfo and they want it out there to manipulate.

What do you think?

The fact they’re trying to sell this on WSJ tells me that even the “smart set” are openly acknowledged dummies anymore.
