GARY ALDRICH: Hillary Clinton’s abominable national security record
The Washington Times ^ | Tuesday, October 30, 2012 | Gary Aldrich

Posted on 10/30/2012 5:58:24 PM PDT by kristinn

I have extensive experience in national security matters, including years served in the House, the Senate and the White House, where I was detailed as senior FBI special agent liaison and investigator with the Bush and Clinton White House counsel’s office.

There was never a question that national security was a top priority for George H.W. Bush’s executive branch. The security system was ironclad, serious and professional. The rest of the federal agencies followed the lead of the Bush White House.

Our national security group consisted of the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Defense and the Secret Service, all working united in a common mission. I cannot recall a single complaint that the Bush administration ignored warnings or suggestions of those ready to give their all — including their lives — to protect the president and his White House, and our national security. We performed our mission, and it was appreciated by the Bush team.

Contrast that with the mess that occurred when Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton took office. The administration, with few exceptions, did not take national security seriously. National and White House security were not priorities. We were shocked.

SNIP

Five House members recently raised questions about Huma Abedin, an aide in Mrs. Clinton’s State Department, whose family has ties with terrorist sympathizers. This aide should not be a candidate for close access. Only those completely above suspicion should ever be given close access to a Cabinet secretary’s daily business or schedule...

Again why does anyone think Hillary Clinton is competent in anything?

IIRC she was quite good at shredding documents at the Rose Law Firm.

Hillary Clinton 10/24/12 on Benghazi: “Everyone that spoke tried to give the information they had”. (Cover for spokespeople it would appear.)

That would appear conflict with Hillary’s statement: “We all had the same intelligence”. (Cover for Hillary herself.)

UNLESS => Hillary Clinton is ultimately triangulating Obama...?

Good column.

Too many people have either forgotten or never knew that Hillary is a disciple of Saul Alinksy’s and wrote her thesis about the Marxist Alinsky.

I don't see it that way. Depending on how fast Romney/Ryan want to clean house, it shouldn't be too difficult. All the socialist came out of the closet to be cheerleaders for Barry, now they are in the spotlight and can be picked off with ease.

Hillary supporters are just as stupid as BO supporters. The Clintons need to go away forever. So sick of these 2 60s radicals having so much influence.

You are spot on! Both Hillary and 0bama were Alinsky deciples. Alinsky believed (as he wrote in his book “Rules for Radicals”) that the Marxist radical must camoflauge themselves and never say what they wish to accomplish, because it would frighten people. The radical must infiltrate the system and destroy it from the inside. Only when the existing system has so utterly failed will beople be willing to let go and grasp the new system - Marxism. See the govt forced subprime loans and the financial sector collapse. Notice the unions bankrupting the automobile companies and the government taking over. The Dodd-Frank rules have minority banling mortgage rules that will repeat the subprime collapse. I predict that is where the government will try to take over.

Who in this White House have any qualifications to hold the offices that they manage, Obama, Hillary Clinton, Panetta, Holder, etc.. Which of the previous mentioned, as any respect for authority, or accountability, based on their own record?

Why does it come as any surprise that their career subordinates have any respect for their leaders.. I cannot remember so many blatant disregard or, not to mention, disrespect for their positions such as the scandalous actions of the Secret Service, or the Justice Dept, ATF, EPA, Treasury..

If we don’t get these Despots out of our Government and our lives, we may not survive.. Remember this crime ridden gang, is hiring their cronies into high level spots in permanent positions every day they head these important high level Departments.. UGH!

Wrong. It takes years from the Klintoons - it takes decades with this commie/homo/muslim.

That was a real eye-opener when I saw that one. Not that it surprised me, but that someone took the time to figure that out to reflect reality.

I think “Bozos” is an insult to Bozo...:)

With ABC and CBS reporting today, maybe it will get better legs.

Jennifer Griffin has been awesome, as well. I’m sorry that I forgot to mention her last night.
