Clinton-era hard drive missing from archives
The Hill ^ | 5/19/09 | Eric Zimmerman

Posted on 05/19/2009 6:29:08 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

A massive amount of sensitive, national security-related information from the Clinton administration has gone missing from the national archives.

The Inspector General of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) told congressional committee staffers Tuesday that a hard drive containing over a terabyte of information -- the equivalent of millions of books--went missing from the NARA facility in College Park, Md., sometime between October 2008 and March 2009.

The Department of Justice and the Secret Service are conducting an investigation, but it's so far unclear whether the drive was lost as the result of a crime or an accident.

That hard drive includes information on Secret Service operating procedures, event logs, and other "highly sensitive information," according to the office of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The data also includes 100,000 Social Security numbers, including the number of one of Al Gore's daughters.

According to Issa's office, the hard drive was in the process of being moved when it somehow disappeared. At least 100 employees, in addition to numerous janitors, interns and visitors, could have accessed the location where the drive was last seen, which, the inspector general told staffers, was located on the way to the restroom.

Issa is calling for a hearing on the matter, asking National Archives and Administration Acting Archivist Adrienne Thomas to testify before a subcommittee on Thursday.

"This egregious breach raises significant questions regarding the effectiveness of the security protocols that are in place at the National Archives and Records Administration," Issa said. "Acting Director Thomas should appear before the committee either voluntarily or via subpoena on Thursday to explain how such an outrageous breach of security happened."

“A massive amount of sensitive, national security-related information from the Clinton administration has gone missing from the national archives.”

It’s not missing...it was SOLD to the highest bidder! *SPIT*

I really hope I live long enough to see one or both of them in Federal prison for the rest of their natural days. *DOUBLE SPIT*

Like Slick Willy, Obammie the Commie probably sold it to the ChiComs. Maybe that's where his massive fund raising came from.

If it involves the Clintons or something about the Clintons; you can bet your booties it’s a crime.

Not only do these people need to go; they need to be jailed.

That hard drive includes information on Secret Service operating procedures, event logs, and other "highly sensitive information,"

I don't know if everything on this drive is related, but it sounds as if it has to do with security procedures for the POTUS.

FWIW, the Secret Service seems to be absolutely paranoid about Obama needing at least twice as much protection as any of his predecessors.

Now, who would want to steal this stuff? Wouldn't it be simpler to just steal and make public a copy of his real birth certificate?

What I remember most about visiting the National Archives in DC a few years ago was the gift shop. You would have thought that Moveon.org selected all the books for sale. It was full of the most vile anti-Bush books.

Perhaps it's the WH gate logs - the ones with the details Slick never released on which Bimbos were visiting when Hillary was out of town...

Nothing involving the clintons happens by accident.

The time span for the disappearance starts just before the election. That alone smells to high heaven.

The first thing that struck me after reading that line is the fact Mrs. Clinton got beat out by the current POTUS and sensitive information regarding security procedures are missing...hmmmm. I doubt there is any connection, but with all the folks that drop dead around the Clintons, its hard not to wonder.

p.s. - I happen to be reading On the Republic (Commonwealth) by Cicero. Should be required reading for every citizen of the USA. Probably a little to late now to make a difference in this sea of idiots.
