The Guardian reports that former GOP Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell used private email accounts for classified emails.
Newsies out there may recall that when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did the same thing, it was one of the worst things in the world, according to all Republican candidates.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
- What is everybody worried about? That the government that reads everyone’s private emails may have re-read the same boring emails twice?
- Isn’t a private email address a better hiding place for classified information than an official government email address? Like North Korea is going to believe Hillary2012SuperClassified@yahoo.com contains legit classified information!
- This will certainly put an end to these Republican talking points, right? (Answer: no – voters want to be angry at email for all those times they forget their passwords to every online account they every signed up for).
