The next Democrat and Lincoln Project presidential candidate for ¹2024, Joe Manchin, questions Defense Intel Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier and Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Avril Haines about whether Ukraine can actually win the current war with Russia. It’s an interesting exchange because none of the DeceptiCon senators will usually approach the issue.
Lt General Scott Berrier (DIA) says [00:56], “that is a difficult predication to make. I think where the [DIA assessment] is at is a prolonged stalemate should no factor change on either side. In other words, the Russians continue to do what they’re doing, and we continue to do what we are doing for the Ukranians.” Read that emphasis carefully.
What Berrier is saying is affirming we are in a direct proxy war. So long as the United States remains the essential fighting force behind the Ukrainian military, they can achieve a stalemate. However, if the United States withdraws support, Russia will win. DIA Berrier is saying directly the U.S. can only achieve a stalemate in Ukraine. WATCH:
Manchin was not being misogynistic in not asking Haines that question. Remember, the ODNI is only supposed to be faced internally into the United States security and intelligence operations. ODNI Avril Haines is a political operative from the Obama administration, specifically implanted into the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, because that specific element of the intelligence apparatus only looks inward into the U.S. citizenry for threats against government.
