MSM Circle Has Been Closed: Unnamed U.S. Defense Officials Condemned Use Of Anonymous Sources

At the height of hypocrisy, senior defense officials condemned the use of anonymous sources in reports that the Pentagon was slow-rolling Biden-Harris transition efforts.

The noteworthy part is that they wished to remain anonymous while doing so.

The Pentagon released an unsigned statement on December 6th to reporters saying that “the accusation by anonymous sources [the Department of Defense] had not been fulfilling its commitment” to transition efforts “is demonstrably false and patently insulting.”

Officials did not respond to an email from Task & Purpose asking why a name was not attached to a statement that criticized the use of anonymous sources.

At the same time, a generic statement was released from Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller praised the Pentagon’s long record of “bipartisan excellence” during transitions and said the department was “fully cooperating with the Biden transition team.”

Other defense officials, who said they could only be referred to as “senior defense officials” in a call on December 4th, spoke of the Joe Biden-Kamal Harris transition. They claimed reports that the Trump administration had refused members of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team from meeting with leaders of the National Security Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency were “untrue.”

The identities of the senior defense officials are known to Task & Purpose, but cannot be disclosed due to the agreed-upon terms of the conference call.

“First, an anonymous statement, then a press briefing by unnamed DoD officials to push back on a story with unnamed sources,” said retired Marine Col. Dave Lapan, a former spokesman for the Department of Defense. “The hypocrisy never ends.”

A second unnamed senior defense official said the Biden-Harris team would have nearly 50 meetings with DoD officials next week, including leaders of the NSA and DIA. The official added that so far, the Biden-Harris team had completed 21 transition-related interviews and had been provided with thousands of pages of written materials.

In main stream US media ANONYMOUS SOURCES = CIA, Pentagon (Deep State).
Media write what is Politically Correct to write and actively support US propaganda inside and outside of US.

In Russian media, anonymous sources = journalist jumping from the window.

HiaNd

So typically Russian…instead taking main entrance, they jump outside ground floor window to get to the car much faster…. Terrible Russians.

occupybacon

Tipically Russian journalist or opposition politician.

If it’s common for Russian journalists to jump from the window, that means you can freely name last 10 jurnos. Can you?

Shlomo Shekelstein

Seth Rich, Epstein, and of course Navalny – he was killed at least 8 times. That’s 10.

occupybacon

There is a list on wikipedia. There are 200 assasinations since 90’s. Half during Yeltsin so Russia ran out of Assanges and Snowdens.

Harry Smith

How many of them were jurors who jumped from a window?

occupybacon

Jumping from window is an expression for assasination. Seems like you care too much of details to get around the subject. Kind of childish tactic, but I bet it works for Russians.

Harry Smith

Yep. About mr. Trump.

occupybacon

I bet Russians are free to make jokes about Trump :)

Anomynous to the same degree of spewing sht from ones mouth,remains just that,bullfknsht(period)
Each and everytime media suggests anomynous or alleged,know 100% it is fake,phoney and false:
High tide we the peoples rise above it all including degenerate cowards,whom of no use to any of us,
lest truth be known:The more information wrong or right is provided to via alternative media eg S.F
the sooner we put two and two together and over the course of time read them better then they know themselfs for that matter,in the end to cponcieve right from wrong we respect constituates or low life
criminals whom partaken toward all kinds of felons,including covering the felons in relation to,
why it’s strongly reccomended not to just fall for their narrative but rather expose their lies within:

Tommy Jensen

Hypocrisy not.
We keep it professional classified, while our Russian and Chinese opponents and their vassals inside the United States goes out in public as anonymous source in an most unprofessional and amateurish manner.

Jim Allen

This is why US Government is a laughingstock worldwide, because the opposite of your statement is true, and you’re a pitiful liar troll.
