Peace and Freedom has spend the last several weeks trying to understand how the U.S. Secretary of State could have released more classified documents to enemies of the United States than any other person in modern times.
Our most obvious finding is discussed here in the article by The Daily Mail.
Several insiders in the Hillary Clinton camp said she just could not comprehend the modern technology most teen-ages have mastered. In defending Mrs. Clinton, one woman even told us, “Hillary Clinton may be incompetent but that’s not against the law.”
Sadly, several laws may have been broken by Mrs. Clinton and her senior staff including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. Insiders in the U.S. bureaucracy that deals with espionage, counter-espionage and the assessment for damage done to U.S. national security after a breach have told Peace and Freedom that Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured email system carried via her Blackberry could have unlocked the door to a treasure trove of U.S. classified data available in the SCIF of the U.S. State Department’s U.S. headquarters in Washington D.C.
“Basically, she’s clueless with computers,” we were told.
Unfortunately, ignorance of the law or anything else is generally no defense when government workers are accused of allowing a breach to U.S. national security information they have sworn to defend and safeguard.

–Clinton would only use her personal BlackBerry for emails, staff said
–She had no idea how to use desktop computers provided for that purpose
–That posed a problem as mobile devices were banned in her suite
–A secure room was set up next to the suite for her to use her BlackBerry in
–But instead she frequently just sent emails from the corridor outside
–She also refused to use a government-provided BlackBerry
–And she didn’t have a password on her stand-alone PC, staff added

The ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s alleged misuse of her family’s private email account for official business might lead some to believe that she is pretty tech-savvy.
But in recent days a number of reports have emerged that suggest the the former Secretary of State is clueless when it comes to desktop computers.
In fact, she’s so out of touch with modern technology that she declined to use specially set up secure computers just so she could keep using her personal BlackBerry to send emails, The Daily Caller reported.
PC gone mad: Clinton is technologically illiterate and can’t use desktop computers to send emails, one of her staff said in a deposition. She refused to use computers set up for her and didn’t use a password, he said
Black mark: Clinton’s insistence on using her personal, over-the-counter BlackBerry for emails was a thorn in the side of colleagues. She even refused to use a government-provided BlackBerry

Clinton violated email policy according to inspector general
Lewis A. Lukens, who has been a foreign service officer at the State Department for 27 years, admitted that Clinton didn’t use a password to protect her PC and couldn’t use a computer.
Lukens, who had been deposed in the ongoing scandal over Clinton’s use of a private email server for work emails, emailed State Department Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy in 2009 email to complain about her technophobia.
‘[Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills] says problem is [Hillary] does not know how to use a computer to do emails – only Blackberry,’ he told Kennedy.
That created a problem, as BlackBerrys and similar devices are not allowed in the Secretary’s ultra-secure suite – meaning that she wouldn’t be able to email anyone while sat at her desk.
And of course, attempts to get her to use a secure computer for exactly that purpose were fruitless, since Clinton was so opposed to using anything other than her mobile device.
During the deposition he also told attorney Michael Bekesha of watchdog group Judicial Watch, that the stand-alone computer that was set up for her ‘wouldn’t have had a password.’
‘So the computer would have just been open and be able to use without going through any security features?’ Bekesha asked. ‘Correct,’ Lukens replied.
And even when Mills set up a secure room next to the suite to allow Clinton to use her BlackBerry in privacy, it proved a waste of time.
The Secretary was frequently spotted using the hallway instead, with Lukens saying he saw her out there ‘maybe a dozen times.’
Staff were further confounded by Clinton’s refusal to use a government-supplied BlackBerry rather than her own, privately purchased one.
Emails show that they were still trying to get her to use a government BlackBerry as late as 2011, The Daily Caller said.
But she continued to use her over-the-counter model.
Lukens told Bekesha that he thought Clinton wanted to use the device ‘to stay in touch with family and friends,’ adding that it had never occurred to him that she would use it for state business.
Text addict: She was given a secure room to use her BlackBerry in, but was seen using it in the corridor outside. The claims emerged as she is under scrutiny for using her personal email account for state business
