Hey there, it’s Keith. Just wanted to let you know about an article Fox News did in which they interviewed Rebekah. It got monster traffic and was at the top of the website.
Sorry, it’s my job to brag!
From the piece:
The Biden administration declined to condemn Putin, Russia’s president, after the Colonial pipeline attack and stressed that the U.S. does not believe Russia’s government was involved.
“We do not believe — I emphasize, we do not believe the Russian government was involved in this attack. But we do have strong reason to believe that criminals who did the attack are living in Russia,” President Biden said on May 13.
Rebekah Koffler, a former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) intelligence officer for Russia and author of the upcoming “Putin’s Playbook: Russia’s Secret Plan to Defeat America,” told Fox News the use of criminal gangs is a common tactic by the Kremlin.
“They do that to maintain plausible deniability,” Koffler said, pointing to Russia’s use of mercenaries in Ukraine and Syria.
“What Putin wants is to establish what we call the ‘balance of power,'” she said.
The U.S. and Russia have long competed on a global scale, and where the U.S. exceeds Russian capabilities, as in the case with the U.S. military, Putin has relied on other factors to bolster Russian dominance – including cyber-strikes.
“Putin is trying to signal to President Biden that he is in a much stronger position ahead of the summit,” Koffler said.
The former DIA intelligence officer argued that while Biden’s rhetoric condemning Putin has been strong, his actions have been weak.
