Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby denied the U.S. is assisting Ukraine target Russian generals. “The Ukrainians have, quite frankly, a lot more information than we do,” Kirby said.
Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that unnamed military officials were bragging about how the Ukraine military was using their intelligence to kill high-ranking Russian military officials.

This has now spread out, with the Times going on to report that more or less everything the Ukraine has been successful at accomplishing is a result of US intelligence backing – that includes sinking a major Russian boat.

The Pentagon claimed on Thursday that they did not help kill the generals.
The Pentagon has denied media reports suggesting it had shared intelligence with Ukraine to specifically target high-ranking Russian military officials.
“The United States provides battlefield intelligence to help Ukraine defend their country,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said during a media briefing on Thursday.
“We do not provide intelligence on the location of senior military leaders on the battlefield or participate in targeting decisions of the Ukrainian military.”
At the same time, Kirby admitted that Kiev “combines” intelligence it gets from multiple unspecified sources to take its “own decisions,” apparently shifting the blame for reported killings of Russian generals onto Ukraine itself.
“Ukraine combines information that we and other partners provide with the intelligence that they themselves are gathering, and then they make their own decisions and they take their own actions,” he said.
Kirby’s remarks echoed the statements made by the National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson, who also insisted that US intelligence wasn’t provided to the Ukrainian forces “with the intent to kill Russian generals.”
The now-denied US assistance in targeting high-Ranking Russian officials was first reported by the New York Times. The newspaper said Washington provided Kiev with information on Russia’s mobile military headquarters, citing anonymous American officials. Ukraine then combined the data with its own intelligence, carrying out strikes that purportedly killed an unspecified number of Russian commanding officers.
The Pentagon made these statements at about the same time the Times was releasing the report on intelligence sinking the big Russian ship, but I guess we can probably assume that if they’re denying helping kill generals than they would deny helping sink the ship.
But this is the standard “talking out of both sides of your mouth” thing. Remember when Joe Biden said during that speech in Poland that he wanted regime change in Russia? Then his Administration claimed that he was lying, that they are not really seeking regime change in Russia?
Here we go again… another regime change war. The target? Nuclear-armed Russia.
Biden: “For God's sake, this man [Putin] cannot remain in power.”

Biden himself later claimed that he never said that.

Journalist Michael Tracey was one of the people who claimed that Biden said this on purpose because they want to constantly send mixed messages.
Now that the true US policy (regime change) has been clarified, it's also been clarified that alleviating Ukrainian suffering is *not* a true US goal. On the contrary, the US is happy to inflict *further* suffering on Ukrainians if it means achieving its true goal: regime change https://t.co/P8bHRysWp4

I’m not sure if it was on purpose or just a result of senility, but it is the strategy of this regime either way to keep sending these constantly mixed signals. What Biden said in terms of regime change has been called for by both Democrat and Republican Congresspersons. Lindsey Graham has called for Putin’s assassination.
“I want the Russian people to take this man out. I don’t care if we put him in jail in The Hague or somebody kills him, he needs to go.”

You can say “oh well, Graham is not a part of the Biden administration” – but what Russia sees is “high-ranking US politician calls for assassination.” No one in the Biden Administration made a big point of disagreeing with Graham.
Meanwhile, earlier this week, a Biden Democrat went on Fox News and said “we are fundamentally at war with Russia.” He openly called the Ukraine conflict a “proxy war.” Similar statements were made by members of Nancy Pelosi’s (really Adam Schiff’s) recent delegation to Kiev.
You can’t really claim that Nancy Pelosi is not part of the Biden government, and her rhetoric is getting more extreme by the day.
"What did they say in World War II? Praise the lord and pass the ammunition. That's what we have to do."

The Pentagon would have the ability to shut down a high profile report in the New York Times if they wanted to. Everyone knows that. The Times is simply an arm of the State Department.
What’s more: how much of an escalation even is this? The US is already openly shipping tens of billions in arms to the Ukraine. Is it a big step to start sending intelligence on how to kill Russians to the Ukraine? They are already admitting they are providing the Ukraine with “various intelligence reports.” It seems the bigger escalation is openly referring to a “war against Russia.”
No one is really taking this whole charade seriously, other than the standard morons who have no idea what is even going on and just believe whatever the government says. However, all of those morons have moved on from even caring about the Ukraine to caring about the next current thing: the Abortion Riots. That is both sides – Republicans were also “Standing with Ukraine,” and they are now focused on the Abortion Riots, right alongside the Democrat baby-killers.
Whatever you think about the Supreme Court potentially ending Roe v. Wade (I don’t really think that will happen anyway), it is clear that this leak was on purpose and the media coverage of the Abortion Riots is designed to distract from a massive escalation in the terms of this war against Russia.
The current terminology of a proxy war against Russia would not have worked in the initial justification of the “support for Ukraine people” as when you talk about a “proxy war,” you are admitting that the Ukrainians are just microscopic cogs in your catastrophic scheme, and giving credence to the claims by all normal, thinking people that the best thing for Ukraine people is a negotiated settlement as quickly as possible.
Now, we’re in too deep and the cattle are watching the Abortion Riots.
