93. Sometimes, people need an answer right away

There are some situations where the opportunity exist, but not the time.

Do you know, for a fact, the situation? Hillary was a very busy Secretary of State. She was constantly flying (yes, they have secure means on the Sec State plane). She attended many social state department and White House events all over the country and internationally. Do you expect her to be beside her STU phone 24/7? Part of the duties of Sec State is to meet people, and usually not in an office setting.

For example, she gets a phone call at 8pm at night. She's at a gathering in New York City away from secure means. She excuses herself, gets to a private room. Time is of the essence, the caller needs an answer in a brief window of opportunity. She's most likely on a conference call with her staff, the CIA, and Sec Def. There is no "let me travel 15 minutes to a secure line and get back to you" Chances are the drone is in the air, target is fixed, and ready to fire. Hillary wouldn't be the person making the final decision anyhow, but she would have a recommendation to make. Being on an unsecure line probably would not compromise the mission at all, because of the urgency in the decision.

But neither you are me know the exact details. You go on believing you know better than anyone else.
