The leaker of US classified documents told the members of their invitation-only discord server that the government hides “horrible truths” from the public. One such example was a claim that federal agencies allowed the 2022 shooting at a Buffalo supermarket to happen so that they could use the event to argue for more funding.
A report from the Washington Post said that this claim was “baseless.” Charlie Kirk pointed out that “the context here is interesting given that much of what was leaked to this Discord chat turned out to be true.” An investigation at the time revealed many "missed red flags."
One of the members of the Discord server noted in to the Washington Post that he was impressed by the man's ability to forecast major events before they became headlines. The member said that the man they called “OG” saw the intelligence community as a force that wanted to keep its citizens in the dark. The member said “he thought that the government is overreaching in several aspects,” but there wasn’t “some heavy Snowden-like conspiracy here.”
The poster posted several classified documents a week to the server where he was seen as the leader. The server was a small group of mostly young men and boys with a love for guns, military gear, and god. The member that the Post spoke with was under the age of 18, and had viewed OG as his “best friend.”
The boy said “it felt like I was on top of Mount Everest,” and continued, “it felt like I was above everyone else to some degree and that… I knew stuff that they didn't.” Of the group, he said they were “like a tight knit family.”
At one point in 2022, OG stopped writing out transcripts of the classified material, to posting pictures he took. Some of the pictures leaked were related to the war in Ukraine, dealing with operations plans, and troop levels.
Though some of the troop-level information had been doctored to reflect an increased casualty rate for the Ukraine Army, and a decreased rate for the Russian Army, however, the member said that OG was not for Russia or Ukraine.
The young member said that “most people in the server were smart enough to kind of realize that… they shouldn’t be posted anywhere else.” When the documents were made public, OG signed off and told the members “he didn’t want to be associated with any of us.”
After over 100 of the documents surfaced across various social media sites, one senior intelligence official called the leak “a nightmare” for the United States and the countries they share intelligence with.
On Thursday afternoon, FBI agents arrested 21-year-old Jack Texeira, a member of the Massachusetts Air National Guard's intelligence wing, in connection to the leak.
