Former generals, intelligence experts: Hillary a danger to the republic

Despite the FBI’s and Justice Department’s refusal to pursue criminal charges against presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, a number of to military leaders who specialize in intelligence gathering and analysis believe Mrs. Clinton is unfit to command the nation’s entire military, intelligence and public safety services.

The news media had no problem being led around by their noses by Mrs. Clinton.

Appearing on a decidedly progressive television news program, former Director of Central Intelligence Michael Hayden told the show’s audience that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured email server while conducting highly sensitive government business shows a leader who is dangerous to the republic and state secrets.

Hayden served in the United States Air Force for 41 years attaining the rank of four-star general. He was appointed as the Director of the National Security Agency and then as the Director for the CIA. Although widely respected by political leaders in both parties — he worked for both Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush — he has openly battled with those who opposed the tactics used by the CIA and NSA in the war on Islamic terrorism.

During his appearance on MSNBC, a news organization thought to be unfriendly to conservatives especially those working in the military, law enforcement and the intelligence community, the discussion about the alleged security breaches turned to Hillary Clinton’s now famous email and her personal email server that she used instead of the one given to her by the U.S. State Department.

While as a rule MSNBC is biased in favor of Democrats, especially leaders such as President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton and now Hillary Clinton, Hayden did not mince words in discussing the latest Clinton scandal. Hayden said, “Number one, put legality aside for a second, [what Clinton did] was stupid and dangerous.”

“Dangerous to whom?” asked host Joe Scarborough. “Dangerous to her. And [dangerous] to the republic and to American secrets. But I don’t even think it was legal. That has to be against policy. I’m stunned that her staff allowed her to do that in 2009 given the unhappy outcome that this [server snafu] guaranteed once [she] started doing that,” Hayden said.

Another top intelligence expert, who served under President Barack Obama, has similar beliefs as Gen. Hayden. Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told Fox News Channel that the probability that Hillary Clinton’s emails were hacked is very high. Flynn, who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency after serving at the Pentagon and recently retired, said it was likely Clinton’s emails — and those sent to her by her staff such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Miller — were hacked, he told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.

Although Clinton and her minions are calling any allegations against her a “right-wing conspiracy,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, was correct in saying he and the other Republicans have nothing to do with the FBI’s investigation. The case was referred to the FBI by two Obama administration inspectors general: one from the intelligence community and the other from the Department of State. Both men are Democratic appointees.

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, who serves as a contributor to several news organizations, also chimed in about Mrs. Clinton: “We have witnessed this same behavior before, even Hillary Clinton in Bosnia, sensationalizing [her] experience to look and appear like a hero in a dangerous environment.”
