Hillary Clinton Exposed Human Intelligence Sources -- Our Spies -- In Her Emails, and May Have Cost Their Lives

To keep Congress and FOIA requests from discovering her own secrets, she chose to imperil the nation's secrets.

Catherine Herridge:

At least one of the emails on Hillary Clinton's private server contained extremely sensitive information identified by an intelligence agency as "HCS-O," which is the code used for reporting on human intelligence sources in ongoing operations, according to two sources not authorized to speak on the record.

Both sources are familiar with the intelligence community inspector general’s January 14 letter to Congress, advising the Oversight committees that intelligence beyond Top Secret -- known as Special Access Program (SAP) -- was identified in the Clinton emails, as well the supporting documents from the affected agencies that owned the information and have final say on classification.

According to a December 2013 policy document released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence: “The HSC-0 compartment (Operations) is used to protect exceptionally fragile and unique IC (intelligence community) clandestine HUMINT operations and methods that are not intended for dissemination outside of the originating agency.”

...


"There are people’s lives at stake. Certainly in an intel SAP, if you’re talking about sources and methods, there may be one person in the world that would have access to the type of information contained in that SAP,” he said.

So that information is kept under lock and key, because if the target country discovers it, they can figure out pretty quickly who leaked, and either kill the spy, or flip them into feeding us false information.

Either way, we lose a crown jewel of intelligence, and maybe someone loses his or her life. (Maybe the family's killed too.)

But hey! Gotta keep Hillary's emails protected from Congressional oversight and FOIA requests!

So anything goes for the Queen.

L'etat, c'est moi.
