Bellingcat Media Group: US Soldiers Accidentally Reveal Secret Data on US Nuclear Weapons in Europe via Web Apps

32

The notorious Bellingcat media group, which calls itself investigators, published materials stating that the US military "accidentally gave out US nuclear secrets." Bellingcat officials say US soldiers stationed at military bases in Europe have leaked classified information.


From the material:

American soldiers at US bases in Europe hosting tactical nuclear weaponused publicly available online applications to remember and display security protocols on them.

It was noted that applications were used in the form of educational maps, on which notes were made, which actually turned out to be available to any user of the network.

From the material:

They used the resources and applications of Cram, Chegg Prep, and Quizlet to memorize secret codes, instructions, and the status of nuclear weapons storage facilities.

Bellingcat adds that European governments are reluctant to comment on the location of US nuclear weapons, and "leaked data and comments confirm the presence of US nuclear weapons in Europe and help determine the exact location, status, and even quantity."

It was noted that because of the leak, it becomes possible to find out which specific tactical US nuclear weapons in Europe is in storage, which is ready for use in the event of a "critical situation."

Bellingcat contributed by Foke Postma.

The publication indicates the presence of an arsenal of US nuclear weapons not only in Turkey and Germany, but also in the Netherlands. The finding of US tactical nuclear bombs in Holland is evidenced by 70 training cards that American soldiers saved in an online application. The cards contain various algorithms for actions based on the storage of nuclear weapons, including an algorithm for working with video surveillance cameras and alerts using communication means.

It turned out that this kind of data has been published by the US Army in the public domain since 2013. The last publication in the application is dated April 2021.

Interestingly, after the author's attempt from Bellingcat to contact the NATO and Pentagon authorities, the data on nuclear weapons in Europe were removed from the applications. At the same time, the statement of the director of the nuclear nonproliferation program J. Lewis is cited:

These leaks are a flagrant security breach.

      Not at all. It's just that the "ringing cats" decided to raise their authority, which has fallen below the plinth, with such a cheap, permitted type of "compromising material" on the "owner" - otherwise, they are already ridiculed, like they only compromise strictly on the list of unfriendly countries of the State Department ... So they decided, like, to raise a hand against the owner (with his permission, of course), like, look, we are "free, honest and fair" .. lol

    Here it would be appropriate to mention Petrov and Boshirov - they lured American poor fellows into a nightclub and gave them a drink with a Novice! Warriors and carried secrets to the masses ... Therefore, the people of Syria chose Bashar al-Assad and urgently needed sanctions to ban SP-2, because Ukraine is holding Russia back 7 years, and Navalny, as a couple of months have dirty hairy men in the zone for his adherence to European values: American "freedom", American "equality" and brotherhood with the Anglo-Saxons all over the world!laughing

            When the Caucasian captive reached us (GSVG), I was 6 years old, but no one was drinking. I remember my father had a buffet at the headquarters - beer, vodka, cognac, all kinds of snacks. It was not forbidden, for example, a glass of vodka for lunch before taking borschtlaughing or a glass of konyak at the end of the working day. And before the New Year there were sold chocolate cones (such as spruce) with cognac - they were taken in great demand. They hung it on the tree, and on January 1, when everything was drunk and eaten, they took a bite, drank cognac and ate chocolate - when he served in the GSVG himself, there was no such miracle (. indulge yourself, at 1 in the morning - wake-up call. Parents were more fortunate laughing

      Well, the peasants have it in accordance with the requirements of Western freedom and democracy, so it's a sin for the Anal to take offense at this. I would smear the face of the escort in the "zone" with shoe polish, and then make Lyokha kiss his shoes in accordance with the requirements of American blacks laughing

    IN THE EYES OF BULGARIA GENERALS AMERICAN SOLDIERS PERFORM EXERCISES AT FACTORIES IN BULGARIA! I am ashamed of the gas flushing and the betrayal of the Bulgarian politicians in front of the cows!

    SOFT SLAVERY
    Today American soldiers invaded the Bulgarian enterprise. The teaching was! Obviously, they are learning to kill on the other side of the planet, and I cannot remember what interests they have on other continents. And the hare of Bulgarian politicians, under whose kind eyes this crime against Bulgaria is being committed, no longer surprises me. What surprises me is when every Bulgarian government over the past three decades has been appointed and approved by Kozyak!
    In fact, today we are slaves again. Yes, we have no visible chains, slavery is mild at first glance, but we have no more rights in our own country than the serfs in the Ottoman Empire. Cowboys define our government, define our values, define our history, define what our children should learn, indicate which of their enemies to expel or arrest in our (or rather their) country.
