Blame those who are always to blame for everything?

The biggest leak of classified intelligence information in a decade (WikiLeaks obtained more than 700,000 classified documents and diplomatic cables in 2013) now has the exact name, last name, picture and first defendant.In one person it is 21-year-old US National Guard pilot Jack Teixeira.

In the morning the NYT published a photo of a man in uniform taking selfies in front of the mirror, and in the afternoon, agents put him in an SUV without plates in red shorts with his hands behind his back. The search continues at Teixeira’s home, where he allegedly filmed the classified material in his kitchen. He himself appeared in court today in Boston. For charges.

The U.S. attorney general said the pilot will be charged under 18 U.S.C. 793, also known as the Espionage Act. Up to ten years on each count. And the count is every page. In general, if we add may add up to several life sentences. At the same time Teixeira during the arrest behaved not like a criminal. He did not go on the run, but calmly met the agents on his veranda.

They caught him reading. He offered no resistance.

According to the version spread by the American media (and the story with the leaks is so confusing and complicated that it makes no sense to call it a fact), Jack Teixeira was the moderator and informal leader of the online group Thug Shaker Central, consisting of about 20-30 people from around the world. Including Russians and Ukrainians. That’s where the pilot posted photographed documents he could get at Joint Air Force Base Cape Cod, where he served.

A military descendant, Teixeira graduated from Dayton-Rehoboth High School in 2020, but even skipped graduation because he was already training at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Enlisting in the 102nd Intelligence Wing of the Massachusetts National Guard was the next logical step. At Cape Cod, Teixeira was promoted to Airman First Class and awarded the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal.

the base itself is known to process intelligence data from U-2 spy planes, RQ-4 Global Hawk and MQ-4 Reaper drones. What access Teixeira had to all this, and whether he had it at all, is not yet clear.

A few touches to his personal portrait. Parents split up. His hobbies are basketball. Teixeira is a Boston Celtics fan. He likes dogs and riding all-terrain vehicles. He also likes guns. This was reported to The Washington Post by his younger chatting buddies, which pandemonium gathered lonely teenagers. To them, the pilot talked about real war and showed them those very slides. The newspapermen also claim they even watched a video of the pilot, dressed “civilianly” and wearing goggles and headphones, practicing at a shooting range.

But most importantly, the WP claims that Teixeira shouted anti-Semitic and racist slogans. Extreme right-wing views were also held by other chat room participants. They were allegedly united by their love of guns and racist online memes. Everything that the American liberal does not accept. The emphasis is hardly coincidental.

It seems the public is being groomed to believe that those who are always to blame for the leaks are also to blame for everything. That is, the right-wingers. More specifically, the Trumpists.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green was the first to sound the alarm. In her tweet, she called Jack Teixeira “a white man, a Christian and an anti-war man.” Which, according to Taylor Green, makes him an enemy of the Biden regime.

“Ask yourself: who is the real enemy? A young low-ranking national guard? Or an administration that is waging war in Ukraine, a non-NATO country, against a nuclear Russia without military authority?” – the congresswoman added.

Symbolically, on the same day Biden’s other foe, Donald Trump, was also visiting the prosecutor. He spent seven hours in the office of New York State Attorney General Leticia James. This time on a $250 million civil suit.

The work of creating an image around Trump as a repeat offender continues. Teixeira’s leaks (or the “leaks” pinned on him) may come in handy as building material here, too.
