Hillary Clinton never completed mandatory information security training

The Daily Caller explains how Hillary Clinton conducted business as Secretary of State – the top diplomat of the most powerful country in the world.


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton completed no security briefings or courses on the proper handling of classified materials and how to conduct secure communications while at the Department of State, according to new Obama administration legal filingsbefore the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The surprise admission was released late Friday and could reignite the controversy over Clinton’s “careless” handling of classified materials as asserted by FBI Director James Comey, which has already been a central part of the presidential race.

The revelation also could renew calls for the Department of State to strip her of her security clearance. The co-founder of at least one retired military officers organization has called for a suspension of her clearance.

State Department officials previously reported they could not locate records certifying that Clinton or her top aides took the annually required security courses and briefings.

But on July 29, Obama administration officials went further, saying their failure to locate any documents meant that the “courses were not completed” by the secretary or her aides.

[…]“If the search of these databases did not locate any such training records, then the courses were not completed,” concluded Eric Stein, the co-director of the State Department’s Office of Information Programs and Services in the July 29 filing before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon.

Specifics about her aides:

State Department records released to TheDCNF show that Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan, two top Clinton aides, took cybersecurity awareness courses once, but not for all four years.

The records show Clinton and aide Huma Abedin never took any cybersecurity awareness training.

Utter contempt for the law, policies, procedures, best practices. Hillary Clinton is above information security and national security.

Have you ever dealt with someone who made decisions based on her emotions? Someone who dismissed all moral rules and objective constraints, believe somehow that these rules were not necessary t succeed? Someone who had utter confidence in her emotions and intuitions such that she dismissed objective constraints? Someone who refused to be held accountable after causing disasters? Someone who attacked others and blamed others instead of taking responsibility? Someone who did dirty, disgusting things in private, thinking that as long as people liked her, then it would be OK? Someone who had no sense of morality, apart from public opinion?

That’s what you are getting in Hillary Clinton. It is everything seen in her past actions. Utter contempt for prescriptive morality. Utter disrespect for the seriousness national security and foreign policy. I think she should stick to yoga routines and Chelsea’s wedding rather than trying to work in areas where she is clearly not qualified to work. The president of the United States is not a job that should be opened to affirmative action candidates whose sole qualifications are gender and marrying someone important. We need someone qualified.
