You can’t make this stuff up

Guess who said this?

At the end of a get out the vote campaign event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, […] was asked about […] plans for protecting cyber security.

“It is one of the most important challenges the next president is going to face,” […] said.

[…] said that the technology offenses conducted by hostile states have become more advanced. […] named Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea as countries that are just going to accelerate their attacks on the cyber infrastructure of the United States.

“We first have to figure how to create what would be an understanding with these nations that we will not tolerate their cyber theft and their cyber evasiveness, and we certainly would never ever sit still for a cyber attack,” […] said.

No.  Instead we’ll  just put secret material on a private server located in a bathroom somewhere and you can just help yourself.

And yes, it was Hillary Clinton, the irony impaired candidate.

The AP reported that during Clinton’s time at the State Department that it was one of the worst agencies in the federal government at protecting its computer networks. The deteriorating situation continued well into when John Kerry took over.

Incredible.

    • I don’t see it, Martin. I’ve had some trouble getting comments to post as well. If you’ll send me what you intended to post, I’ll put it in the comment above.

    Well, I’m sure no criminal wrongdoing actually occurred, and if any might have, it was after the fact, or something….VRWC sexists!

  • This is the same Administration that had the OPM allow the data of practically every federal employee to be hacked, then kept the information about it from the Congress for two years.

    It didn’t help that that top two IT personnel at OPM were located in Brazil and the PRC.

    (…Keeping the FBI out of my servers will be priority #1 in my administration.)

    That understanding needs to begin at home. Literally, in her case.
