The goat with teeth
Trying out this whole ‘conveying useful information sincerely’ thing (as opposed to that whole ‘flitting about all twee and snarky pretending the rest of the world doesn’t care’ thing) is rather a lot like the whole ‘wearing new shoes on a long walk’ thing.
No one knows who CNN’s source is or why he/she was granted anonymity, so it’s okay to move this *news item* into the trash bin.
Non-predictive intelligence floppery has been a feature — not a bug — of Russia’s years-long attempt to erase Ukraine. That someone uploaded photos from a classified DIA brief about Ukraine’s battle readiness is, er, par for the course. So is the Kyiv Post’s asinine attempt to use the glowie to sell Anabel Arto’s shapeware.
There is an active anti-Ukraine leaker on the loose. Our priority should be identifying and eliminating the scoundrel, not bloviating and selling bras.
