Not a day goes by that I don’t learn something.
Today Hillary Clinton taught me, in her words, “It is left to Government Employees to determine what is government related and what is personal”.
I did not know that.
I expect this will also be news to Edward Snowden and Miss Manning… among others… but I digress.
So this afternoon, we were educated in how the Federal Government handles classified and government related e-mail correspondence.
They leave it to the Employee to decide.
While I must admit it is rare, if ever, I find a Government Policy to make things more efficient… I have to concede, this would be one.
Brilliant in its simplicity, this policy may be the first to genuinely streamline what would otherwise be considered crushing levels of redundant bureaucracy.
We also learned this afternoon that this policy extends to Cyber Security as well.
Again, I have to admit that much of the Cyber stuff is way over my head, like Firmware hacking such as Greyfish or various other Cyber Espionage and Cyber Warfare spyware.
But clearly… the State Department has made sure that all of their employees are capable of safeguarding their own, personally installed in their home, Servers. I can’t even imagine the hours of instruction and levels of knowledge one would have to individually possess in order to create such system. Good thing it’s Mrs. Clinton and not one of us Stupid people doing this type of complicated IT work.
So there you have it. There is nothing to see here… and besides, other people have done it so it’s okay anyway.
Other Government Employees have not installed their own personal servers at their homes to handle all of their official, and some unoffical, e-mail correspondence?
Well… then… it’s a vast right-wing conspiracy just like when all those Republicans accused Bill Clinton of having sex with that one girl when he didn’t.
He did? Well… everyone else was doing it too. And besides, it was just very, very, very heavy petting… which it not sex. Nope. Not sex.
The whole thing was actually about sexual harassment, law Clinton himself championed, and there were over 20 women who had come forward regarding his errant sexual behavior, some even accusing him of rape? And then he lied about it under oath and lost his law license?!
Whatever! Shut up! Haliburton! Bush Lied! Dick Cheney!
I apologize, for that. My wife talks to me over my shoulder when I tap.
Finally, what we learned today is it’s nobodies business what’s on your personal, totally secure, server at your home.
The NSA learned something from Mrs. Clinton today as well…
She’s very Smart. And Honest. We’d be Lucky to have her as President.
