A U.S. Secretary of State is tasked with keeping America safe, so what does it say when someone in that position can’t even keep their own communication devices secure — and doesn’t even seem that worried about it?
On of the many revelations in the latest Wikileaks investigation proves that Hillary Clinton knew that foreign agents were accessing her BlackBerry device but didn’t take steps to stop them.
Breitbart News reported that Clinton knew her Blackberry was insecure. The State Department warned her about a security “vulnerability” with her Blackberry on her first official trip as Secretary of State, when she visited China and other Asian countries.
Clinton was investigated by the FBI for violating the Espionage Act by allegedly allowing national defense information to be “lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed” through gross negligence.
In Clinton’s own words, her State Department’s idea of maintaining security was to “leave all of our electronic equipment on the plane, with the batteries out” when they visited China or Russia. Even a layman is prompted to wonder if such rudimentary precautions could possibly prevent foreign agents from accessing sensitive data undetected.
Does any of this really demonstrate sound judgement on Clinton’s part?
