The revelations coming out about Hillary Clinton’s use of an insecure email server during her time as Secretary of State may have cost Ambassador Christopher Stevens his life. The damning evidence which continues to pour out of the email contents being released bit by bit from the State Department is starting to piece together a very, very disconcerting national security nightmare.
The American Thinker reports:
Putting together the information now publicly available, the question has to be asked: Did an ISIS hack of Hillary Clinton’s virtually defenseless home brew server set up the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens?
ISIS has proven itself adept enough at information technology that a successful hack of Hillary Clinton’s server at her Chappaqua mansion cannot be ruled out, no matter how many Secret Service members stood guard. Apparently unbeknownst to the former secretary of state who boasted of the server’s security because of the guards outside, it is so easy to hack a garden variety server set up by a mom-and-pop operation that an ISIS (and Russian intelligence and Chinese and Romanian and many other agencies) hack is well within the realm of possibility.
As more and more comes out, we’re learning that not only did Hillary Clinton send and receive information deemed classified, her system could have been hacked over time leading to intelligence breaches of untold proportions.
The New York Post picks up the story:
US intelligence officials so far have determined that at least four — and as many as 305 — of the more than 30,000 emails Clinton and her aides have printed out and turned over to investigators were classified at the time they were written.
They include a 2011 message from Clinton’s top aides that contains military intelligence from United States Africa Command gleaned from satellite images of troop movements in Libya, along with the travel and protection plans for Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was later killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Another staff email sent to Clinton in 2012 contained investigative data about Benghazi terrorist suspects wanted by the FBI. [Emphasis added]
Both emails were classified TS/SI — Top Secret/Special Intelligence — and required the nation’s highest security clearance to read. SI is a control system within the supersecret designation known as Sensitive Compartmented Information.
This scenario could have setup a leak which led to the death of a US Ambassador, and three other Americans, on September 11, 2012, in Benghazi, Libya. I stress the would could, since there is no direct evidence yet to fully connect all the dots. The larger scope, if you back up a few steps, is the entire reason why classified information, including security details and travel plans, are not to be stored on servers outside of stringent government control.
We don’t yet know why Hillary Clinton is attempting to curtail any and all questions about her private email server. Initial speculation had to do with influence peddling through the Clinton Foundation, and that may also be part of it. Perhaps, however, there is an even more sinister reason for her to keep this issue under wraps.
