the full extent of hilary*** clinton's arrogance and stupidity will probably never be fully limned, nor comprehended.
it never occurred to her, apparently, that every intelligence service in the world mined/was mining her home computer for information. and, it is now apparent that the iranians were, and that they have just hanged an iranian scientist who provided the united states information about iran's nuclear weapon's program and aspirations.
the following, from carolyn, so, a grateful tip o' the hat to "c."
"clinton's private server held emails about nuclear 'spy' executed in iran: ... ." by wills robinson for the daily mail, published 13:10 est, 7 august 2016 .
the story has its twists and turned, but the man hanged by iran, shahram amari left iran and wound up in the united states where he gave american intelligence information about the iranian nuclear program, its status and its aims. he must have gotten homesick, because he returned to iran under the pretense that he has been held against his will by the americans, and that he had divulged no information to the united states about iran.
well, so much for the vitality of that version of events, given that hilary and friends referred to amari repeatedly as "their friend," and also disclosed that he was to be paid the sum of $5-million for the information he disclosed.
the story confirms that amari was hanged, apparently sunday and that his body was returned to his mother by the iranian government, with rope burns around his neck.
let me ask.--
what is hilary to say about this? will she find recourse to her usual tag line, "what difference does it make?"
will she deny it ever happened, and deny that anything remotely like these events ever occurred?
and, what will those resolute clear eyed denizens of the american leftist media say about this, if anything at all? will leon panetta, that stalwart cold war warrior, also say, "well, stuff happens."
is there anyone stupid enough on the face of the earth ready to stand up, and declare that it made no difference that hilary talked about top secret/ultra top secret stuff on her home computer. a dell? an alien ware? an ipod?

p.s. keep in mind, that hilary did not just receive such communications. she sent responses back to the senders. and, she sent multiple copies of such exchanges to multiple sources and/or recipients. "stupid" and "careless" do not begin to describe her conduct.
"criminal" is a good start.
***i can spell "hillary." i just won't. it might be misconstrued as a sign of respect, of some sort or another. such as you might confer to a convicted ax murderer at his execution, by calling him "mr." something like that.
