Former CIA Moscow station chief calls out Biden for failing to explain Ukraine strategy

Longtime CIA officer and former Moscow station chief Dan Hoffman called out President Joe Biden for not being transparent about the role of the United States in the war in Ukraine. 

“The president needs to take a page out of President Reagan’s book or FDR’s book or JFK — somebody — and explain to us what’s going on and why it matters to us,” Hoffman said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. 

The U.S. announced this week that it would be sending three dozen tanks to the Ukrainians ahead of an expected Russian offensive. The 31 M1A1 Abrams tanks will equal roughly an entire Ukrainian battalion of vehicles, according to a recent report.

Other international allies that have been supporting Ukraine financially include the EU, the United Kingdom and Germany. German Chancellor Olaf Schulz is prepping to announce that Berlin will send a group of Leopard 2 tanks to the country. 

Concerned that Americans don’t seem to really understand their role in the Ukraine war and how it benefits the United States, Hoffman is calling for President Biden to spell it out.

“He’s got to explain to the American people why this is in the U.S. national interest to help Ukraine defend themselves from a nuclear-armed state mounting an imperial land grab,” he said. “That’s what this is all about.”
