O que sabe do suspeito da transpiração de documentos do Pentágono
April 14, 2023 -
O aviador Jack Teixeira, de 21 anos, enfrenta acusações de espionagem
relacionadas com a transpiração de documentos militares classificados
sobre a guerra na Ucrânia e outras questões de segurança nacional.
Teixeira was arrested by the FBI at his family home in Dighton, rural Massachusetts, on Thursday.
Dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, he was led away by heavily armed agents.
Teixeira has been identified as the leader of an online chat group where the sensitive documents first emerged.
He is charged with the unauthorised removal and transmission of classified information. He will appear in court in Boston, Massachusetts later on Friday.
Dozens of leaked documents revealed U.S. assessments of the war in Ukraine as well as sensitive secrets about American allies, embarrassing Washington and raising fresh questions over the security of classified information, the BBC said.
