(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Retired four-star general and MSNBC “military analyst” Barry R. McCaffrey posted video game footage to Twitter then called it a display of Ukraine’s air strength against Russia, the Post Millennial reported.

The incident reflected the recent “Ghost of Kyiv” scam, which was actually footage posted from a “Digital Combat Simulator.”
