The Unraveling of the US Intelligence Community: A Story of Miscalculations and Misjudgments in Ukraine – Flopping Aces

Worst Intel Failure Since WW2

If you think about that, it’s pretty big claim to make—even regarding such a large scale debacle as America’s war on Russia. Nevertheless, Alexander Mercouris made that claim yesterday and, while it’s a big claim, it’s defensible. Before Mercouris arrived at that conclusion in a monologue with the unwieldy title EU Leaders Isolate Macron, Scrounge MidEast/Africa for Shells; Ukr May Coup Rumours; Rus Orlovka, he spends a good deal of time addressing a topic that I dealt with earlier in the day—the ridiculous notion that the EU/NATO would intervene in Ukraine to stop Russia from rolling up to the Polish border. That idea was advanced by, among others, Andrew Korybko, based on some pretty crazy statements from Tiny Manny Macron. The basic idea was to talk Poland into commiting national suicide for the benefit of French elites, whose ass is chapped because Russia kicked them out of Africa. At the EU summit in Paris it turns out that neither the Poles nor anyone else in Europe is nearly stupid enough to fall for this You first, we’ll be right behind you! gag.

A major portion of the hour+ video is devoted to speculation about the NYT times article about the CIA involvement in Ukraine since way back when. The official date is 2014, but if you think that was the start of Neocon meddling in Ukraine then the NYT has a bridge near their offices that they want to sell you. That reality points to the reality of just how big an intel failure this has been. Or Neocon wishful thinking chickens coming home to roost. It’s a complete mess. And, again as we discussed yesterday, the Ruling Class in DC is starting to scramble for some sort of an exit ramp.
