A side note on Powell’s use of personal email

A side note on Powell’s use of personal email

Clinton has defended her behavior by explaining that Colin Powell also used a personal email address for State Department business. This is an incredibly misleading claim, as the IG report reveals. The secure system the State Department uses was put in place during Powell’s first year there. The system was so primitive that it only allowed users to correspond with people within the agency. To contact anyone outside the agency, one had to use a different medium of communication. Powell used personal email — which is different than a personal server — to communicate outside the agency. He had a laptop with a separate line on his desk that he referred to as the “unclassified line.” Sounds a bit more responsible, no?

By the time Clinton reached the State Department, the system and related policies protecting security were far more sophisticated. This was partially due to previous cyberattacks.

28. I'm sure the corporatists will feel less threatened...

in a progressive-free zone.

Oh, I could stick around, but I'm not a big fan of suppression of progressive, liberal thought and activism. If I had wanted that I would have joined the freepers a long time ago.

5. If you really must know the biggest difference, it's the Statute of Limitations. Can't prosecute

any related acts that occurred prior to 06/12/06.

10. None of this really matters...

because the FBI will be focusing on was there any criminal activity and criminal intent. She may have broken some rules and regs and may have mishandled some classified information by mistake but its becoming clear there was no crime committed.

13. Exactly. No crime was committed.

People who focus on this e-mail controversy must be superhuman and never make any mistakes in anything they do.

11. To say it was different is to ignore the crux of the matter.

 

Powell broke the rules. Clinton broke the rules differently. Do you see the similarity between them or are you solely focused on 'getting' Clinton on something?

4-8 years ago, it probably really, really sucked.

20. He also used his personal email address for personal email and his government email address

 

for government work. He did use about 3 dozen business related emails from his personal address but NONE of them had any CLASSIFIED information in them.

Whereas Hillary did ALL her email from her personal SERVER and had at least 2200 emails with classified information in them and 22 of them were at the highest classification, meaning they were "born" classified. . . they were classified when written, and remain so now.

MUCH different.

The system is still terrible. And let me add that Powell has turned over exactly none of his emails...June 16 can not come fast enough for me.

24. You know, if you "take the time" quoting the author to chase down the links in that blog

It's all innuendos, speculation and very selective analysis.

This all you got?

and putting us all in danger by intentionally deciding to break the law and use a third-party service.
