Former CIA Officer Says Decision To Drone Attack Kremlin Was Made By The United States

Former CIA Officer Larry Johnson says the decision to drone attack Kremlin was made by the United States.

The Wednesday attack, which was likely to have been targeting Russian President Vladimir Putin, was stopped by electronic warfare systems which disabled the drones before they could reach their target.

According to Johnson, the attack must have been spearheaded by the Biden administration and the US military-industrial complex because “decisions on such attacks are made not in Kiev, but in Washington.”

“Washington should understand clearly that we know this,” Johnson told reporters.

Although the attack, which Ukraine denied it was involved in, failed to accomplish its tactical goal, it was still highly “symbolic,” according to Johnson.

    But, how long does bidun think he can continue to poke the bear before something tragic happens to the people of this country?
    First the Nordstream Pipeline and now drones aimed towards Moscow. What’s next? Troops in the Ukraine?
    Oh, wait. They’re already there…
