I read this article by Kurt Schlichter and wondered again at the word games Clintons play. She didn’t send any email marked classified because someone copied and pasted it for her. I don’t handle classified information, but there’s times when I get what’s called “sensitive but unclassified” or SBU. This is stuff like proprietary data that belongs to a company like ATK or Boeing or export-controlled information like a fair amount of propulsion work or any kind of mechanical drawing. Those have to marked SBU and sent encrypted. What happens if you are careless with SBU? Answer: “Individuals may be subject to administrative sanctions if they disclose information designated SBU. Sanctions include, but are not limited to, a warning notice, admonition, reprimand, suspension without pay, forfeiture of pay, removal or discharge.”
So say Hillary does get elected. How are you going to discipline the rank and file for, say, sending a white paper on turbine blade design unencrypted to a colleague when the head honcho had over 1,000 classified emails affecting national security sent unencrypted? Or is it going to be like the IRS, and the level of punishment depends on who you donated to in the last election?
