In the AP article Sliver of Clinton emails hint at lingering political trouble” authors Lerer, Lee and Gillum say :

Much of the correspondence concerned the mundane matters of high-level government service, press clippings, speech drafts, and coordination of calls with other top officials as well as chit-chat about shopping between Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin.

“What a wonderful, strong and moving statement by your boss,” Christian Brose, a top adviser to Sen. John McCain, writes in an email to Sullivan, forwarded to Clinton just after Stevens’ death. “Please tell her how much Sen. McCain appreciated it. Me too.”

 Missing from the article are more Council on Foreign Relations connections to the CFR’s NSA/CIA/State department Benghazi Psyop.

Christian Brose and John McCain are Council on Foreign Relations members. Sullivan is former Hillary Clinton (wife of Council on Foreign Relations member Bill Clinton and mother to Council on Foreign Relations member Chelsea Clinton) aide Jake Sullivan the latest national security advisor for Vice President Joe Biden.  Sullivan, served as Secretary of State  Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and then also simultaneously as her director of policy planning. Twenty-two of the last thirty Secretaries of State have been Council on Foreign Relations members.

Sullivan was also considering a return to his native Minnesota to begin a political career and potentially a run for Congress.  Sullivan decided to take Biden’s job offer, to replace Council on Foreign Relations member Tony Blinken, who succeeded Denis McDonough as principal deputy national security advisor to President Barack Obama the latest in a line of CFR puppet POTUS’s stretching back to Woodrow Wilson. McDonough succeeded Council on Foreign Relations member Jack Lew, who is moving next door to head the Treasury Department, as White House chief of staff.

 Here’s Sullivan’s bio as released by the White House:

Mr. Sullivan joined the State Department in January 2009 as Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy. He also served as Deputy Policy Director on then-Senator Clinton’s presidential campaign, and was previously Chief Counsel to Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, his home state. Trained as a lawyer, he worked as an associate at the Minneapolis law firm of Faegre & Benson and as an adjunct professor at the University of St. Thomas Law School. Mr. Sullivan served as a clerk for Judge Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and for Council on Foreign Relations member Justice Stephen Breyer of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mr. Sullivan graduated from Yale College with a degree in Political Science and International Studies. He earned an M.Phil. in International Relations from Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship, where he served as managing editor of the Oxford International Review. He earned a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was an Articles Editor of the Yale Law Journal.

Mr. Sullivan’s formal title was Deputy Assistant to the President and National Security Advisor to the Vice President.

The Oxford Rhodes Scholorships were established and funded Cecil Rhodes. The Council on Foreign Relations was formally established in Paris in 1919 along with its British Counterpart the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The Council on Foreign Relations and Royal Institute of International Affairs can trace their roots back to a secret organization founded and funded by Cecil Rhodes (The Roundtable group), who became fabulously wealthy by exploiting the people of South Africa. Rhodes is the father of Apartheid.

The Council on Foreign Relations was founded by a group of American and British imperialists and racists intent on ruling the world. Many of the American members were American intelligence officers that belonged to the first American Intelligence Agency — THE INQUIRY. Many of the British members were British Intelligence Agents. THE INQUIRY and its members, who included such notable Americans as Col. Edward Mandel House, Walter Lippmann, Isaiah Bowman, and James Shotwell, wrote most of Woodrow Wilson’s 14 points.

We learn more about Jack Sullivan and Hillary Clinton in a Council on Foreign Relations Event Media Call on Framework Agreement to Limit Iran’s Nuclear Program . Speakers were Ray Takeyh, Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies and Michael A. Levi  Council on Foreign Relations David M. Rubenstein Senior Fellow for Energy and the Environment and Director of the Maurice R. Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies. Presider was Council on Foreign Relations member David E. Sanger National Security Correspondent, New York Times.

During the interview POLITICO’s  Anni Karni raised the following question that provides more insight into the CFR-Benghazi connection ( to highlight the CFR connection parenthetical comments have been added to the interview ) :

QUESTION: Hi there, thanks so much for your time.

I wanted to know if you could just explain a little bit, I’m trying to understand, how much of the groundwork for this is Hillary Clinton (wife of CFR member Bill Clinton) is responsible for? Can you talk a little bit about what she can rightly claim as her legacy for her time in the (CFR run) State Department and—and what her role is, in your opinion?

(CFR expert) TAKEYH: Well, I think (CFR member) David can answer that.

(CFR member) SANGER: Oh, I’m sorry, I was on mute there for a minute. It’s an interesting question and the—certainly the early days of the secret diplomacy where Jake Sullivan and (CFR member) Bill Burns went off to begin to set this up happened in the last six months of her time in office.

And Mr. Sullivan then continued on as one of the two big interlocutors until probably end of last year or early this year, even after he left the administration, though he’s not been involved in these last few rounds, nor was (CFR member) Bill Burns out here.

But I think you can certainly say that she was part of the—the early strategy on having, you know, debated with President Obama on the wisdom of engaging Iran during the campaign, and then moving forward to try to—to make some of those appeals.

QUESTION: And in terms of her, like this is kind of a political question, but do you think it’s—will be good for her to take some credit of being part of this or tricky for her to do that? In terms of because we don’t know, you know, kind of how this ends up.

(CFR member) SANGER: Yeah. (CFR expert) Ray, what’s your thought there?

(CFR expert) TAKEYH: This is the most controversial arms control agreement that I have seen. And if you grew up—if you grew up in 1980s, like I did, went to school, you can actually major in arms control. This—this—I haven’t seen anything this controversial.

The Republican Party has rejected it. I think all its presidential candidates, all 35, 40 of them, have already—have already come out against it. And there’s a lot of disquiet among the Democratic legislatures on the Hill. I don’t think they’ll obstruct (ph) what the president wants to do.

So this is a highly contentious and controversial arms control agreement. And I don’t know how you can maneuver all aspects of this politically. I think there’s a way around them. You can be supportive and skeptical. I suspect that’s the direction (inaudible).

In his article, Ex-C.I.A. Official Rebuts Republican Claims on Benghazi Attack in ‘The Great War of Our Time’ New Your Times Report and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member David E. Sanger writes about CFR member former deputy director of the CIA Michael J. Morell’s forthcoming book. Sanger tells us that in the book Morell asserts that Republicans, in their eagerness to politicize the killing of the American ambassador to Libya, repeatedly distorted the agency’s analysis of events. CFR member Morell says there is “no evidence” to support the charge that “there was a conspiracy between C.I.A. and the White House to spin the Benghazi story in a way that would protect the political interests of the president and Secretary Clinton.” Not only was the story spun to protect the president and Secretary Clinton but it purposely ignores all CFR connections to the story. Hillary Clinton is married to CFR member Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea is also a CFR member. Eighteen CIA directors, including David Petraeus are CFR members. Twenty-two Secretaries of State are CFR members. Nineteen NSA directors including Susan Rice are CFR members. The CFR’s Carlyle group makes billions from weapons sales due to Endless Middle East unrest.

CFR member Sanger’s article and Morell’s book are both part of the CFR Benghazi psycho-political operation and limited hangouts.  They are CFR propaganda pieces meant shape public opinion and keep the CFR connection to the event out of the picture.

The AP article follows don’t you think it’s time for Trey Gowdy and the Benghazi Investigation committee to start probing the CFR-Benghazi connection? If so don’t you think it’s time for you to contact them and let them know?

 

 

 

 

Sliver of Clinton emails hint at lingering political trouble

May 23, 4:23 AM (ET) By LISA LERER, MATTHEW LEE and JACK GILLUM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received information on her private email account about the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi that was later classified “secret” at the request of the FBI, underscoring lingering questions about how responsibly she handled sensitive information on a home server.

The nearly 900 pages of her correspondence released Friday are only a sliver of the more than 55,000 pages of emails Clinton has turned over to the State Department, which had its plan to release them next January rejected this week by a federal judge.

Instead, the judge ordered the agency to conduct a “rolling production” of the records. Along with a Republican-led House committee investigating the Benghazi attacks, the slow drip of emails will likely keep the issue of how Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, used a personal email account while serving as the nation’s top diplomat alive indefinitely.

Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said that the released emails were incomplete, adding that it “strains credibility” to view them as a thorough record of Clinton’s tenure.

The prospect for political complication in Clinton’s choice to use a personal email account, rather than one issued by the government, was evident in the messages released Friday. They included several that were deemed sensitive but unclassified, contained details about her daily schedule and held information — censored in the documents as released — about the CIA that the government is barred from publicly disclosing.

Taken together, the correspondence provides examples of material considered to be sensitive that Clinton received on the account run out of her home. She has said the private server had “numerous safeguards.”

Campaigning in New Hampshire, Clinton said Friday she was aware that the FBI now wanted some of the email to be classified, “but that doesn’t change the fact all of the information in the emails was handled appropriately.”

Asked if she was concerned it was on a private server, she replied, “No.”

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, “It was not classified at the time. The occurrence of subsequent upgrade does not mean anyone did anything wrong.”

It’s not clear if Clinton’s home computer system used encryption software to communicate securely with government email services. That would have protected her communications from the prying eyes of foreign spies, hackers, or anyone interested on the Internet.

Last year, Clinton gave the State Department 55,000 pages of emails that she said pertained to her work as secretary sent from her personal address. Only messages related to the 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were released by the department on Friday. The 296 emails had already been turned over to the House Benghazi committee.

A Nov. 18, 2012, message about arrests in Libya was not classified at the time, meaning no laws were violated, but was upgraded from “unclassified” to “secret” on Friday at the request of the FBI to redact information that could contain information damaging to national security or foreign relations.

Twenty-three words were redacted from the message, which detailed reports of arrests in Libya of people who might have connections to the attack, Harf said.

The redacted portion appears to relate to people who provided information about the alleged suspects to the Libyans. That part of the email had been categorized by the State Department as “NOFORN,” meaning that foreign nationals weren’t allowed to read it, including close U.S. allies.

The message, originally from Bill Roebuck, then director of the Office of Maghreb Affairs, was forwarded to Clinton by her deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, with the comment: “fyi.”

No other redactions were made to the collection of Benghazi-related emails for classification reasons, officials said. They added that the Justice Department had not raised classification concerns about the now-redacted 1 1/2 lines in the Nov. 18 email when the documents were turned over to the Benghazi committee. The committee retains an unredacted copy of the email, the officials said.

Clinton also appeared to send and receive protected information about the CIA, which was withheld on Friday because the State Department said federal law prevented its disclosure. The department did not offer a detailed description of what it was withholding, such as a name or other sensitive information.

A number of the messages were marked with codes indicating that the information had been censored for reasons related to the U.S. intelligence community, law enforcement or personal privacy — a process that happened after they’d already been circulated through Clinton’s home server.

Much of the correspondence concerned the mundane matters of high-level government service, press clippings, speech drafts, and coordination of calls with other top officials as well as chit-chat about shopping between Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin.

“What a wonderful, strong and moving statement by your boss,” Christian Brose, a top adviser to Sen. John McCain, writes in an email to Sullivan, forwarded to Clinton just after Stevens’ death. “Please tell her how much Sen. McCain appreciated it. Me too.”

There are repeated warnings of the unrest in Libya, though Clinton has said she was never personally involved in questions of security in Benghazi before the attack. One message describes a one-day trip by Stevens in March 2011 to “get a sense of the situation on the ground” and prepare for a 30-day stay in the future. A request for Defense Department support was made, the email adds, but no approval had yet been received. Stevens was killed in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.

As early as April 2011, Clinton was forwarded a message sent to her staff that the situation in the country had worsened to the point “where Stevens is considering departure from Benghazi,” The email was marked “Importance: High.”

Associated Press writers Matthew Daly, Stephen Braun and Eileen Sullivan in Washington and Ken Thomas in Hampton, New Hampshire, contributed to this report.
