Response to underpants (Reply #3)

4. Recall that the State Department cables were all hacked* and published

around the world, with very sensitive diplomatic appraisals of foreign leaders revealed, causing a lot of international tension.

I was infuriated by Comey's insinuation that although no evidence of foreign hacking was found, it was "possible" that such a thing could have occurred. Therefore he made the "extremely careless" charge. Well, we know for damn sure that government servers have been hacked by foreign entities, including the Russians and Chinese. It's been admitted. So what is so careless about not using those government servers?

*I call it hacking, even though it was an inside job. Think of all the Bolton leftovers at the State Department who could have done the same thing to the new Secy of State's emails? To me, it seems like a prudent move to stay out of the system.
