British Deputy Defense Minister James Hippie said that not all classified US materials that have been released to the public are accurate.
Jack Teixeira, a junior aviation specialist in cyber transport systems with the rank of US Air Force Private 1st Class, was indicted in a Boston court on Friday. For “unauthorized storage and transmission of information on national defense” he faces 10 years in prison, for “unauthorized seizure and storage of classified documents or materials” another five. He will remain in custody until the next hearing scheduled for April 19.
“The US Secretary of State, the US Department of Defense and the French Department of Defense have already said that not all of the leaked information is accurate. Colleagues will be upset, I know, but I can’t say how much of this information was inaccurate, since it concerns classified intelligence information,” Hippie said in the House of Commons, answering questions from parliamentarians about the leak of classified materials. The broadcast was conducted on the website of the British Parliament.
