Washington Post: Person behind leaked Pentagon documents worked on military base

April 15, 2023

CNN —The person behind a massive leak of classified US military documents worked on a military base and posted sensitive national security secrets in an online group of acquaintances, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. The leaker, going by the moniker “OG,” began posting messages to the Discord chatroom last year that referenced military jargon, The Post reported. In the months that followed, the leaker posted messages in which he appeared to transcribe classified information from US documents, according to the report. “If you could think it, it was in those documents,” the friend and member of OG’s Discord group told the Post. Bellingcat, an investigative outlet, first reported on the connection between the leaked documents and the two Discord servers.
