Douglas Wise, a former Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director and
former senior CIA operations officer, is back in the news this week.
In an interview with The Australian, Wise admits that he and others
always knew that the emails on the Hunter Biden laptop were likely
genuine. It was a remarkable admission from one of more than 50 former intelligence officials who signed a letter dismissing the Hunter Biden
laptop story before the 2020 presidential election as likely "Russian disinformation."
Yet, Wise still maintains that, while true, he and the other officials
were right to call it out as likely "disinformation." Arguing that
something is true, but still constitutes disinformation sounds a lot
like . . . well . . . disinformation.
The infamous letter from the former intel officials (including such
Democrat figures like John Brennan, James Clapper, Leon Panetta, and
Jeremy Bash) was used by the media to assure the public that there was
nothing to see in the scandal. It was the perfect deflection in giving
a cooperative media cover to bury the story of how the Biden family
engaged in influence peddling worth millions with foreign figures,
including some with foreign intelligence connections.
It worked beautifully. It was not until two years later that NPR, the
New York Times, and other media outlets got around to telling the
public the truth.
