Clinton’s reputation hangs on a fine spidery thread after mounting evidence that her negligence brought the world ISIS

 

In March 2015 it became publically known that Hillary Clinton had used her family’s private email server for official communications rather than the federal servers. These official communications included thousands of emails that would be later marked as ‘classified’ by the state Government. Then the controversy started to unfold amidst the backdrop of Clinton’s 2016 presidential election campaign.  

WikiLeaks are a non-profit organization that publishes secret information and classified media from anonymous sources. From March 2016 WikiLeaks published 30,322 emails and attachments from the Clinton email server dating all the way back to 2010 when she became Secretary of State. The 50,547 pages of documents span from June 30 2010 to August 12 2014. From these pages, 7,570 documents were sent by Hillary Clinton. The emails were made available in the form of thousands of PDFs by the US State Department as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request. The final PDFs were made available on February 29, 2016.

Many of these emails were sent by Hillary Clinton and some were received by her. A majority of the emails were marked as classified; the first email to be declassified would be during 2020. All of these emails were deleted by Hillary but were saved in the archive, which were then supposedly accessed by a self-styled hacker who goes by the name ‘Guccifer 2.0’. However, WikiLeaks did not reveal their source.

What makes this even worse is that the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, says that he has evidence that Hillary Clinton sold weapons to Islamic State (ISIS). In Obama’s second term, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar — a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, and friendly to the Libyan rebels — in an effort to topple the Libyan/Gaddafi Government and then, to ship those arms to Syria in order to fund al-Qaeda, and topple Assad in Syria.

Under oath, Hillary Clinton denied she knew about the weapons’ shipments during public testimony in early 2013 after the Benghazi terrorist attack. In an interview with Democracy Now, Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is now stating that 1,700 emails contained in Clinton’s cache directly connect her to Libya and Syria, and also directly to al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Assange appears to have been asserting that the leaked emails and cables, which showed various actions were undertaken by Clinton and others at the U.S. State Department, had resulted in ‘weapons flows’ to ‘jihadists within Syria, including ISIS’. Based on this information, one could certainly make the case that during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, the U.S. provided weapons to various factions in Libya and Syria, that some of those weapons might have ended up in the hands of groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, and ISIS, and that the latter was a foreseeable outcome of the former.

But Assange did not say, nor have any revealed emails documented, that Hillary Clinton ‘sold weapons to ISIS’. That is, that Clinton deliberately and knowingly arranged for the United States to sell weapons to the jihadist militant group known as ISIS. Perhaps her role in shaping the United States’ actions regarding the Libyan intervention and the ongoing Syrian Civil War consisted in negligently allowing arms to fall into the hands of ‘jihadists’, but that’s not the same thing as ‘selling weapons to ISIS’.

Julian Assange says that he has over 1,500 emails that could have Clinton arrested. If these emails are released into the public domain what could this mean for the future of the presidential election? Whether this is true or not, her position as the Democratic Party nominee could be in danger.
