President Joe Biden spoke with top U.S. intelligence and defense officials on Friday to stress the importance of their work but also said that recent news reports about U.S. intelligence sharing with Ukraine have been counterproductive, according to two administration officials.

Biden spoke to the officials amid concern in his administration about news reports, including by NBC News, about U.S. intelligence sharing with Ukraine.

The CIA and the Office of the DNI declined to comment. The Pentagon and the National Security Council did not respond to requests for comment.

1. Seems some in media wanna make news

Sensitive information should be respected for obvious reasons in this case. This only inflames n is not helpful w/ this cause.

2. I tend to agree..

Causes Biden's admin unnecessary complications in an already tense and dangerous situation. Certain people need to keep their goddamn mouths shut. Ironic thing is, these are people who are trained to keep their goddamn mouths shut. In organizations where silence is a big part of the job.

3. Pelosi said the same thing earlier on MSNBC.

The reporters should never have published it, she said. Very irresponsible.

4. Yeah, whoever did this, it was irresponsible.

They deliberately tried to undermine the administration and what they're trying to do here.

I'm not a fan of them.

5. Totally agree!

How could reporting this be of any help. The media is being totally irresponsible. Click bait is more important than national security.

6. The Media: "Let's really push the direct U.S. involvement angle in the Ukraine/Russia war."


"Can you imagine what kind of ratings World War III would get?!!"

9. It's the government officials who told the media that are mainly to blame

If they hadn't wanted it reported, they wouldn't have told the media.

12. I don't disagree with that, but.....

there's some folks in the Pentagon, Langley and / or Ft. Meade that need to be chewed a new asshole. Few things make me madder.

10. Yeah but,

president Biden basically told the Pentagon he was unhappy with the leaks about intelligence. So what happens? It is leaked that president Biden told the Pentagon he is unhappy with the leaks.

11. Thank you Mr President. SOME things DONT need to be reported.

SOME things need to be done in secret and no, we don't have the "right" to know ALL of it

15. *LOCKING*

Host consensus is this OP doesn't meet the criteria in the SOP for this forum:

Important news of national interest only.

This would be fine in GD.
