Non-credible U.S. government communication is a national security risk.
When our own side of the story lacks believability, this functions to help Russia, which of course celebrates when Americans look like idiots.
Keeping this in mind, and because truth has no nationality, I highly recommend an op-ed by Former Marine Corps Intelligence Officer Scott Ritter which appeared in Russia Today.
The entire piece deserves to be read, but here are some of the key points:
- In the fever and fog of war, truth suffers first (old saying, frequently proven)
- The images coming from Bucha are disturbing and distressing
- The Ukrainian Bucha narrative doesn’t make sense
- The truth is findable
- Russia has asked to convene and emergency session of the U.N. Security Council next Monday (4/11) but the request has been denied.
(Odd that the guilty party would request a hearing and that the outraged one would so strongly deny the request.)
It is my personal belief that the “white hats” relish this upcoming session, where again the overblown, misleading, and false claims being promulgated will all backfire and show who is truly causing the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, a crisis of cruelty and suffering that is beyond words.
