Skip to comments.WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton ordered US diplomats to 'spy'
Posted on 11/29/2010 8:13:14 AM PST by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
The information Clinton directed the diplomats to ascertain ranged from basic biographical data such as diplomats' names and addresses to their frequent flier and credit card numbers, to even "biometric information on ranking North Korean diplomats." Typical biometric information includes fingerprints, signatures and iris recognition.
The cable, simply signed 'CLINTON', is classified S/NF - or 'Secret/No Foreign' - and was sent to 33 US embassies and the UN mission offices in New York, Vienna and Rome.
It asked officers overseas to gather information about "office and organisational titles; names, position titles and other information on business cards; numbers of telephones, cellphones, pagers and faxes," as well as "internet and intranet 'handles', internet e-mail addresses, web site identification-URLs; credit card account numbers; frequent-flier account numbers; work schedules, and other relevant biographical information," revealed the leaked documents.

This is O’s way of bashing hitlery. He did get some docs withheld but allowed the docs against her to be released.
The question now is what bubba is going to do about it.
Good for her.
Sad to say - but she would be better than Barry.
Doesn’t this incident remind you of Hitler’s effort to eliminate long-term ally Ernest Rohm?
She spied on Americans when she was in the White House and illegally obtained 900 FBI files.
Why should this come as any suprise?
I have been out of the loop over the hiliday’s I did not know this thanks.
Just WOW. Read the story over on Fox News and I’m sure it’s going to be one heckuva news day.
Sounds like this should be standard operating procedure for diplomats. Intelligence such as ‘knowing’ as much as possible about your counterparts’ professional and personal life is a corner stone of sound diplomacy.
Oh yeah filegate.I pray Americans don’t forget all of the Clinton misdeeds and crimes.
And this is the woman who claimed she knew nothing about her husband’s adulterous affairs.
I still don’t understand why the Wikileaks guy is not room temp by now. He has not only given the USA a black eye but he has bloodied the nose of most other governments we are civil with. The Saudi’s have to be really ticked. There is so much cover for a hit on the guy it is unreal. If I had sold the guy a life insurance policy I would be trying to buy it back from him today for some discount on its payoff.
Pre-emptive shot at Hillary, yes..
But I think the BIG question here is wondering what everyone is going to do about the blatant treachery of 0bama. Releasing these previously "classified" docs has obviously been orchestrated by his operatives.
“credit card account numbers”
Sounds like it borders on identity theft and fraud.
No effin' way!
Diplomats spy? Oh no, I’m so suprised! It’s not like we’ve pretty much always done that.
This Wikileaks thing has so far produced some already well-known facts that are being hyped up as leaks.
Absolutely correct. The fact that Hillry! violated international treaties pretty much dooms her plans to supplant ZERO at the top of the ticket. THIS IS GREAT NEWS. We want OBAMA to stand for reelection.
He will be the last DEMONRAT PRESIDENT FOR A GENERATION.
One would think the guy's been heavily guarded and protected IF the stuff is truly harmful (as opposed to merely personally embarrassing.)
At the end of the day I don’t think we get any great surprises here.
-Countries have their diplomats spy on each other all the time while claiming that they never do.
-Government have nasty and unspoken opinions about foreign leaders all the time, they just rarely get aired.
-Two-faced leaders feign neutrality while secretly pushing a superpower to attack their enemy (House of Saud)
I doubt that the diplomatic cables of any other major country would be much different.
Isn’t that part of her job?
Trying to be provocative, newbie? Obama didn't orchestrate anything. He is not benefitting at all from this dump of State telegrams. This is the revenge of a lowlife military creep who is unhappy about the DADT policy.
