Chris, Sean, Tyrone, and Glen could be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the deaths caused by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s incompetence and inaction over Benghazi.
It turns out that Hillary’s email may well have served up a whole lot more people to the enemy. You remember Hillary’s email, right. That would be the email that she sent NO classified information over. Well, except maybe …
On March 18, 2011, Sidney Blumenthal — Clinton’s longtime friend and political adviser — sent the then Secretary of State an email to her private account that contained apparently highly sensitive information he had received from Tyler Drumheller, a former top CIA official with whom Blumenthal at the time had a business relationship.
“Tyler spoke to a colleague currently at CIA, who told him the agency had been dependent for intelligence from [redacted due to sources and methods],” the email states, according to Gowdy’s letter.
The redacted information was “the name of a human source,” Gowdy wrote to his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) of Maryland, and was therefore “some of the most protected information in our intelligence community.”
“Armed with that information, Secretary Clinton forwarded the email to a colleague — debunking her claim that she never sent any classified information from her private email address,” wrote Gowdy in a letter to Cummings.
In other words, it appears that Hillary sent the name of a CIA source out over her private, unsecured, email account. Apparently she didn’t think that could be considered classified.
Another expert, former CIA counsel John Rizzo, noted the identity of a human intelligence source is “the most sensitive kind of classified information.” He then listed various steps Hillary Clinton should have taken, but evidently did not.
Hillary has been claiming, as have her enablers, that she didn’t send any information that was “marked classified.” The law actually doesn’t require information to be “marked” as classified, the law assumes that the sender – in all cases – will recognize information as classified and treat it as such.
I don’t have a security clearance and have never had one. I am, however, smart enough even without a careful reading of the law in question, to know that if I saw human source intelligence information I certainly would treat it as highly classified.
Mrs. Clinton, hopefully, at this point it makes a world of difference.
