A startling new report makes the astonishing claim that the CIA, known for fomenting revolution and wars around the globe, is helping to direct sabotage attacks inside Russia, risking all-out war with a major nuclear power.
Even as Russia’s forces struggle to pacify Ukraine, having had to retreat in recent weeks after taking ground in the country’s eastern reaches early in the February invasion, Moscow still maintains a substantial nuclear arsenal and the means to deliver warheads in ways even the U.S. could not stop, via Mach 5 Zircon hypersonic missiles.
According to investigative journalist Jack Murphy, the CIA is supposedly using long-dormant sleeper cells that have been activated by an unnamed NATO ally’s spy service, which are working to hinder Russia’s war effort from behind the lines.
“Years in the planning, the campaign is responsible for many of the unexplained explosions and other mishaps that have befallen the Russian military industrial complex since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February, according to three former U.S. intelligence officials, two former U.S. military officials and a U.S. person who has been briefed on the campaign,” he reported on his website. “The former officials declined to identify specific targets for the CIA-directed campaign, but railway bridges, fuel depots and power plants in Russia have all been damaged in unexplained incidents since the Kremlin launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February.”
He went on to report:
While no American personnel are involved on the ground in Russia in the execution of these missions, agency paramilitary officers are commanding and controlling the operations, according to two former intelligence officials and a former military official. The paramilitary officers are assigned to the CIA’s Special Activities Center but detailed to the agency’s European Mission Center, said the two former intelligence officials. Using an allied intelligence service to give the CIA an added layer of plausible deniability was an essential factor in U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to approve the strikes, according to a former U.S. special operations official.
Murphy says that operational command and control over the sabotage missions reside solely with the CIA “for legal reasons.” Still, he added that the unnamed NATO ally has a great deal of influence over which missions are actually carried out since that country’s sleeper cells are on the ground taking risks. He went on to say that the NATO ally, in particular, is not a client state for the CIA or a proxy, but rather that there is a close partnership involved. Murphy said he would not identify the country by name other than to say it is located in Europe.
Murphy also noted that any covert actions launched by the CIA must first be authorized by presidential order, most likely classified, so it’s obvious Biden’s handlers know what is going on, even if they are not completely competent at what they are doing.
“After the U.S. intelligence community concluded that Russia had interfered with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, President Barack Obama signed such a finding for covert action against Russia before he left office, according to The Washington Post,” Murphy reported. (Note: Multiple investigations have concluded that Russia did not “collude” with the Trump campaign to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton, and in fact, her campaign paid for bogus ‘dossier’ that was fed to a former British spy by Russian intelligence.)
“The finding involved the National Security Agency and the military’s Cyber Command in addition to the CIA and included a scheme to plant ‘cyberweapons in Russia’s infrastructure,’ according to the Post,” Murphy reported.
The journalist also noted that after Russia’s invasion, alarmed NATO allies activated cells within their own countries, and they are also involved in sabotage missions inside Russia itself, outside of the CIA’s purview.
