The Biden administration’s embarrassing leak of classified defense information, including warfighting plans for Ukraine, shows another conspiracy theory is correct. US troops are in Ukraine.

As reported on Wednesday, the National Security Council spokesman, John Kirby, admitted that U.S. special forces are inside Ukraine.

The documents revealed a 14-member unit is deployed to the U.S. embassy in Kyiv.

“There’s a small U.S. military presence at the embassy in conjunction with the defense attache’s office to help us work on accountability of the material going in and out of Ukraine,” Kirby told reporters.

He also claimed there’s been no change in America’s outlook about involvement in Ukraine’s war with Russia.

Yet, as the BBC put it, the leak “confirms what has been the subject of quiet speculation for over a year.”

But the more salient point was made by Reason magazine on Wednesday.

The leak raises “grave questions” for the Biden administration.

“But for the American public and the lawmakers theoretically representing us, one revelation should raise a larger concern: If there are U.S. boots on the ground in Ukraine, as these leaked documents indicate, are we closer to war with Russia than we thought?”

“Even an American embassy in a peaceful, friendly country could have a U.S. military presence of 14,” Reason stated. “But that’s the thing: Ukraine isn’t a peaceful country right now.”

Meanwhile, Biden has said America “will not be directly engaged in this conflict, either by sending American troops to fight in Ukraine or by attacking Russian forces.”

But that pledge could fall by the wayside if tragedy strikes.

“Putting Americans in Ukraine, though only a few, could be a path to direct confrontation with Russia,” Reason noted.

“What happens if they’re killed by a Russian bomb? It’s difficult to imagine a solely verbal response from Washington, particularly if the deaths become public. Even a small risk of a world-historic catastrophe is a serious risk.”

And Russia likely won’t let that pass, as the BBC reported.

The troops’ presence in Ukraine, the outlet reported, “is likely to be seized upon by Moscow, which has in recent months argued that it is not just confronting Ukraine, but Nato as well.”
