Democrats, Progressives, the media, and the Clinton campaign can say that Hillary Clinton is – and always has been – concerned about the safeguarding of sensitive information, but the entire world already knows that’s an incredible lie. Clinton has compromised more classified data than a legion of spies could steal.
A perfect example of how she simply doesn’t grasp the concept of sensitive information is from the third Presidential debate, during the discussion about nuclear launch codes and timing. Clinton exposed information on the timing surrounding a President’s order to launch nuclear weapons as well as the actual time it takes to launch the weapon. This led one retired Lieutenant General to tell The Daily Caller, “It is foolish to talk about any nuclear command control timing decision.”
Clinton’s internationally televised blunder is just one in a long line of nonchalant actions regarding classified and sensitive information.
Whether it’s transmitting Top Secret information over her Blackberry or communicating sensitive information over an illegal and unsecured private email server, Clinton has demonstrated that she knows – and/or cares – nothing about securing our nation’s most sensitive information.
“The bottom line on nuclear weapons is that when the president gives the order, it must be followed. There’s about four minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so,” Clinton said.
The exposure of the 4-minute time span between presidential order and the launch of nuclear weapons by our Armed Forces is considered sensitive information by our government. Even though a scant few academic publications have estimated this time frame, no one holding – or who has held – this information is cleared to release it to the public.
Clinton’s debate statement led retired Army Lt. General Keith Kellogg, who worked as the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s director for all communications for US military forces (and who is now a Trump campaign adviser) responded to Clinton’s attack in a very direct and negative way.
“It is foolish to talk about any nuclear command control timing decision,” Kellogg said. “It is just not done, because you just don’t give up any indications of what your windows are for decision-making…It just corresponds to me to her cavalier approach to security in general…It’s crazy. It’s incredibly foolish for someone to do something like that.”
While the Clinton campaign rejected claims that she revealed any secret information, intelligence experts and military operatives – both active and retired – said that even though this time frame may have been previously supposed in academic papers, government officials and those cleared for security clearances are still held to their obligations to maintaining this information as classified.
One former Navy SEAL, speaking to FOX News, declared that Clinton’s exposure of this sensitive information “now validates with specificity something of great sensitivity that has long been speculated by our adversaries and others in the national arena, including academics and think tanks.” Until Clinton said it, all of this was just speculation!
The irony in all of this is that Hillary Clinton was projecting her inability to keep a State secret onto Donald Trump. She’s the one blathering Top Secret information on international television!
After it was exposed that she transmitted Top Secret and even Special Access Program information over an unsecured server, and now that she has vomited nuclear weapons launch time information on international television, we have to ask: Who shouldn’t be allowed to have access to the nuclear launch codes?
The answer certainly isn’t Donald Trump!
