That's another misleading term I've heard Cankles defenders on the left use: retroactively classified. Too much wiggle room. Reporters need to say 'properly marked', so her defenders can't claim that the data wasn't supposed to be classified when she dispersed it. Okay, enough data wonkery for me - back to the boat!!

Agreed, Rick. This will happen or not at much dicier outfits than the FBI. They're Keystone Kops at this level of intrigue and national security. In my lone dealing with a TS code word data breach (in which I alerted the FBI), I could tell that they were largely operating ad hoc.

I dunno, Ig. The folks at those agencies have an incredible amount of power, ex data. And they are true to themselves, not any particular politician or party. It could happen. Not jail time, of course, but significant consequences. She has nothing to offer them...

I've noticed her 'not marked' dodge, Cecil. That may fool the rubes, but anyone who's ever held those tickets knows that such a quibble is not a defense. She's going down.

Satellites and their remote sensing data are my professional life. Even the most innocuous data breaches can render these multi-billion dollar platforms ineffectual. And that's why the resultant data products are so highly classified and why these idiotic leaks can so easily compromise national security.

@Rick: Intelligence at that level, e.g., TK, is from an NRO asset and is generally shared with the NSA, CIA, et al. Said another way, Clinton didn't originate that data, she was merely on the receiving end.

Absolutely no innocent way, Cecil. None.

You don't even have to copy them. If the TS text says 'The blind squirrel flies at midnight', then you can just retype that in an unscure medium without markings and you think you're covered. You're not.

And CNN says that her emails raise questions of 'over-classification'. No. That's not that point. Sorry, CNN. Too late for that crap.

She's toast, Jane. Those are each felonies. Wish I could believe she'd do jail time, but I'd accept permanent loss of her clearance - making her ineligible for office.

Unfortunately, yes, Ig! :)

@sbw: I usually tie four drunk ropes to the boat and sink my butt into a PFD with my sponge and cleaning solution. Works very well as I can triangulate against two of the ropes at a time. Drunk ropes are my 50' sections of 3/8 woven that we tie to a vest when we're drinking in the water. One is used for my noodle-wrapped YETI. Not that I ever drink on the water or anything...

Good points, sbw. As I said, they were very nice - as I'd be if I were actually being paid to be on the water. About to dive in and soap the sides. A clean hull is a happy hull. :)

I told them 'Cant I just eat my waffle!' I was down on the carpet soaking up the remnants of several errant Jell-O shots and had the music cranked to '11' and didn't even hear them pull along until they popped the siren. I about shit. They asked to come aboard - one did. They were really nice. If I was with a date, I might have been pissed. Of course, I might have been on the carpet for another reason!! Just kidding, of course...

Just had my very first encounter with the marine police - Guntersville PD in a very nice Zydeco with twin 200s. They were cool. Wanted to see my PFDs, a fire extenguisher, registration, and the 'V' on my license (vessel). I have a suppression system and a hand-held plus a half-dozen orange vests, and my paperwork is always in order. Didn't say crap about my open PBR or loud music. I have no idea where they stand on beverages, but it was below the gunwale, which is my personal beverage rule. So, I live to boat another day! :)

Interesting! I lost a fortune off of that adage! ;)

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned is one of life's great understatements. Just sayin'...

The young man will figure it out on his own, and on his own schedule. Anything interfering with those truths will be counterproductive. I went through some of those issues with my divorce, re: my daughters. We're now closer than ever. I understand your concerns, but you really need to sit this one out.

Moderately literate? Is that the same as severely stoopid?

re: the McKinley renaming, Althouse's poll has a choice for the next Republican president to rename it Mt. Palin. Priceless.
