William Muck discussed leaked classified documents on Discord

A stunning leak of a cache of classified Pentagon documents appears to be one of the most significant breaches of U.S. intelligence in decades, revealing national-security secrets regarding Ukraine, Russia, Asia and the Middle East, as well as details about U.S. espionage methods and spying on adversaries and allies. The Pentagon confirmed the leak’s authenticity, and while the documents had been made available online for more than a year, U.S. officials weren’t aware of the leak until April 6, the day it was reported by the New York Times. The Justice Department quickly opened an investigation, and within a week the FBI arrested the 21-year-old suspected leaker, National Guard airman Jack Teixeira.

William Muck, professor and chair of the political science department at North Central College, interviewed with WCPT 820-AM Radio host Joan Esposito, where he addressed the leak and what secrets the documents revealed.
