The State Department is defending its handling of classified and sensitive information against statements by the FBI director that the department doesn’t handle such information as well as other government agencies.

State Department spokesman John Kirby says the department takes cybersecurity very seriously, contrary to conclusions in the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday the State Department’s security culture lacks the same kind of care for classified information as found at other departments.

His criticism echoes the findings of multiple previous reviews of how cybersecurity was handled at the State Department while former Secretary of State Clinton led the agency.

  1. @Jon: General Petraeus’ infidelity had nothing to do with the security of America’s Top Secret and higher classified information like Hillary Clinton’s illegal and negligent actions did. While his actions were illegal and highly irresponsible, Paula Broadwell (the woman he shared the Top Secret information with) was a commissioned officer in the military reserves and had a Top Secret security clearance herself. (BIG DIFFERENCE, but still illegal)
    General Petraeus was forced to resign as Director of the CIA for his extra-marital affair. To avoid being charged with FELONIES and prison time for “Lying to the FBI” and violating a section of “The Espionage Act” (as Hillary should have been), Petraeus pleaded guilty in federal court to a misdemeanor charge of “Mishandling Classified Materials” (a minimum of what Hillary should have been offered. He was sentenced to two years of probation and fined $100,000.
    Who was involved in charging General Petreaus? Why it was none other than FBI Director James B. Comey and Attorney General Eric H. Holder. Imagine that!!

  2. As opposed to, say, General Petraeus, who deliberately leaked classified information to the woman he was screwing (who wasn’t his wife) while she was “writing” his hagiography. J.
