There goes the greatest thing the US Government ever did.
After re-reading her name, there go our last national secrets, too.
Not her first dance with Crony-Capitalism. Clinton named Arati the director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in 1993.

Not to mention, Islam will be the most affected from a downfall of their Muslim patrons dominance over hydrocarbons.

Doesn't mean they won't conduct espionage efforts to steal technology. For all we know she could be a Muslim Indian working on behalf of Pakistan.
