Response to Maedhros (Reply #32)

38. A standard assumption, but is it valid in this particular case?

As it happens it is pretty normal for government business to be conducted "outside administrative control" because of an antiquated, inadequate and leaky system. Don't forget the many people with access. E-mails sent through it all too often turn into D.C. gossip, and who knows what else.

You know, every person who saw or used Clinton's e-mail address knew she, like many others, was not using the official system (this includes security experts of course), but, even though she was Secretary of State, none of the security experts raised any significant objection (you know, like putting it in a memo and sending appropriate ass-covering copies), and it never became an issue -- until the GOP decided it was time to use it to try to derail her campaign for president.
