Hacker Begins Distributing Confidential Memos Sent To Hillary Clinton On Libya, Benghazi Attack

Posted by on Mar 19, 2013 at 8:07 am

The hacker’s e-mails went to hundreds of recipients, though the distribution lists were dotted with addresses for aides to Senate and House members who are no longer in office. But many of the addresses to which the Blumenthal memos were sent are good (though it is unclear whether karl@rove.com is a solid address for the Republican mastermind).

Most of the e-mail recipients were sent four separate memos that were e-mailed to Clinton by Blumenthal during the past five months. Each memo dealt with assorted developments in Libya, including the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. One memo marked “Confidential” was sent to Clinton on September 12.

As TSG reported last week, after Blumenthal’s e-mail account was compromised, the hacker searched it for e-mails sent to Clinton, and further sorted the mail to segregate any attachment–like Word files–that were included in Blumenthal’s correspondence to Clinton. Many of these pilfered documents were memos to Clinton on foreign policy and intelligence matters.

    Why am I not surprised Blumenthal is still around, counselling the Hildebeast. Amoral hacks.

    Sauce for the goose — if I thought it was wrong of Manning to release documents, and I did and do, then I think it’s wrong of this hacker to release documents.
    There’s a process for Congressional oversight and inquiry. It’s creaky and clumsy but it’s lawful. Let the inquiry take its lawful course rather than this leaker’s way.
