So rewarding a thug KGB Russian president will somehow stave off war?
‘Do not get me into a war’: Leaked emails show Obama didn’t want to engage with Europe over Russia because US could be seen as a ‘threat’
- Emails stolen contain information from conversation between both former Secretary of State and supreme commander of Nato
- General Breedlove asked Secretary to convince President to take greater role in Russian conflict
- The chain from 2014 was posted on new website called DC Leaks
Hacked private emails have revealed how a US Nato chief believed President Obama did not want to engage with Europe or the Alliance over Russia because he thought they were a ‘threat’.
General Philip Breedlove, former supreme commander of Nato, said he feared the White House viewed the bloc as a ‘worry’ because their gung-ho attitude to war could drag the US into another conflict.
In an email to the former Secretary of State Colin Powell, he asked him to help him persuade the President to take a greater role in the conflict with Russia over the Ukraine.
Emails were leaked from General Philip Breedlove’s account and posted onto new website DC Leaks.
His leaked emails were written in September 2014 after the EU and the US imposed sanctions on Vladimir Putin and he withdrew some troops from eastern Ukraine.
They were taken from General Breedlove’s Gmail account and posted on a new website called DC Leaks.
They reveal his campaign to pressure the White House into escalating the conflict, and how a group of secret agitators close to him campaigned to secure weapons for the Ukraine.
