The end of Mr. Og
Hundreds (100s) — up to 1,000 — of classified Pentagon briefs, mostly dealing with Ukraine, were uploaded to a Discord server since October, according to Aric Toler, who chatted with members of the group involved in the megaleak (@lawfare).
John wrote about the Defense Intelligence Agency’s assessment of the bloody mess based on materials appearing online1. But what John didn’t say is that no one in their right mind takes anything the DIA reports about Ukraine seriously, at least not in Ukraine2.
We assume Og has been identified and is in custody or dead as of this writing.
