Are the Biden administration and many in the establishment media rotating misinformation concerning Ukraine? The implications of not questioning the existing authorized narrative threaten for a free society and could cause a wider war.
My interest was drawn to the topic by an short article authored by Jacques Baud, a retired colonel in the Swiss intelligence service.
