Did Hillary Clinton expose Iranian nuke scientist Shahram Amiri?
Just last night, it was reported that Iran executed nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri
, who had defected to the United States and then returned to Iran. On Face the Nation on Sunday, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark) disclosed that Amiri appeared in the top secret emails on Hillary Clinton's private server
Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her
private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran
for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.
"I'm not going to comment on what he may or may not have done
for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary
Clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior
advisors about this gentleman," he said on "Face the Nation." Cotton was
speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about
Iran's nuclear program.
The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe.
"That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision
was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private
server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country
safe," he said.
It would appear possible that discussion on an unclassified — and quite
possibly hacked — email system about a person who was hanged as a spy
will have a chilling effect on others who might want to engage in
espionage for the United States.
"We have a diplomatic, 'psychological' issue, not a legal one. Our
friend has to be given a way out," the email by Richard Morningstar, a
former State Department special envoy for Eurasian energy, read,
according to the Associated Press. "Our person won't be able to do
anything anyway. If he has to leave so be it."
But don't expect that to keep the media from going all out for Clinton....
