Comments on: What everyone with a Top Secret security clearance knows – or should know Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: GZT Mon, 14 Mar 2016 20:14:35 +0000 I’ve explained this same thing on more than one occasion…
It’s really simple.
A soldier, sailor or airman who is privy to some information and gets liquored up by Ivan and starts saying too much IS HELD RESPONSIBLE for what he says even though his words are not marked classified.
Sending that same kind of “saying too much” information in an email is absolutely no different.
“The emphasis throughout the classification system is not on strict legalities and coded markings, but on judgment. In essence, employees are required to know right from wrong. It is a duty, however subjective in appearance, one takes on in return for a security clearance.”
Mrs. Clinton failed.
Lock her up like you would any soldier, sailor or airman who let something slip… because she is dead guilty of letting information get into the wrong hands. She failed to protect this information as was her duty so to do.
End of story.

Therefore, either she is extremely incompetent or she willfully violated the law.

By: TwinkieDefense Fri, 14 Aug 2015 22:21:03 +0000 You seem to have assumed that Clinton SENT classified emails (rather than potentially RECEIVING them). That is counter to what Feinstein has said.

By: Wgone Fri, 14 Aug 2015 06:44:21 +0000 All of this posturing about security systems inherent in these agencies have one serious flaw. IT ALLOWED Clinton to use a private email address. I have never heard of someone getting hired by even a small company and then being allowed to conduct business on a private email address, far worse a private server. There is someone far more culpable here than Clinton. It appears that these security system and procedures that you describe dont exist in the real world or she would not have been able to have done this.

By: 12751ShimsRd Wed, 05 Aug 2015 11:51:21 +0000 Is the FBI under the command or influence of obama?

“Judge Andrew Napolitano: “Hillary Clinton Has Admitted To Destroying Evidence”
JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: She is in trouble legally if there is a prosecutor with the courage or authority to prosecute her because in addition to admitting that she
diverted government records from the government, in addition to admitting that
she put classified information in a non-classified venue, that is the crime in
which General Petraeus has agreed to plead guilty to. She now has admitted to
destroying subpoenaed evidence after she was on notice of the existence
subpoena. That’s known as obstruction of justice as well as destruction of the
documents. But none of her crimes will get to first base in terms of
prosecution without a prosecutor to pursue them…”

And obama will ensure a cover up.

This is a huge hole in the state department guidelines, right? I mean how can she be prosecuted if she was allowed to set up a personal email server that contained state department emails?
The US government server systems are an unmitigated disaster – personal records of millions stolen by hackers, NSA leaks of hundreds of thousands of documents – you can’t seriously call out Clinton for the disaster that the Obama white house is regarding US secrets.

By: aeci Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:26:10 +0000 Clear, concise … thank you, Peter.

By: Macedonian Mon, 03 Aug 2015 21:23:23 +0000 The problem is that these people with access to confidential info are latter hired by big corporations domestic or foreign.

By: OneOfTheSheep Mon, 03 Aug 2015 16:19:16 +0000 Excellent presentation of a subject often mnisunderstood. OK, Attorney General, when does the American public see Hillary charged for what she did?
