Russia has been inching further and further west in its war against Ukraine. But Russia might have America in its sights too.
Because now the Pentagon is freaking out after Russia was caught invading Biden’s military.
Issue after issue is popping up for Joe Biden with no end in sight.
First, it was the mega failure of the Afghanistan pullout that saw Joe Biden’s approval numbers tank in the second half of 2021.
Then it was the skyrocketing inflation and the housing crisis that arrived in early 2022.
That was followed by the gas prices reaching all-time highs in some regions of America.
All of this has led to Americans having a very unfavorable view of the Biden administration on almost every critical issue.
Probably the biggest one is managing the military. Polls have shown that even a majority of Democrats don’t trust Biden as commander-in-chief.
That is only going to get worse for Biden after this latest devastating news about the military just hit the public.
An exclusive report from Reuters has indicated that a Russian company that is disguising itself as American, has been used at a major U.S. Army training base.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States’ main agency for fighting major health threats, said it had been deceived into believing Pushwoosh was based in the U.S. capital. After learning about its Russian roots from Reuters, it removed Pushwoosh software from seven public-facing apps, citing security concerns.
The U.S. Army said it had removed an app containing Pushwoosh code in March because of the same concerns. That app was used by soldiers at one of the country’s main combat training bases.
The owner of the app Pushwoosh, Max Konev, says that his company has no connections to the Russian government at all.
But that’s hardly enough to quell the concerns of Americans that Biden’s military is insecure.
Especially considering the company, according to Reuters and the U.S. government, has been disguising themselves as an American tech communications app for years.
Why would the company need to hide the fact that they are out of Russia?
Well, the company collects user information like exact geolocation and cookie data that allows them to keep tabs on what they want to know about a user and send them precise push notifications.
Americans probably don’t want to hear that their data, especially not the military’s data, is being housed in Russia where the Russian government could knock down the doors to Pushwoosh’s company and demand the keys to the data centers.
That’s assuming they aren’t already bending the knee to the authoritarian Putin regime.
Unfortunately, they must have some data from the U.S. military from the time the base was using it. There’s no telling what that Russian company has.
