"From 2011 on, the State Department had a secret arrangement with the CIA, giving it a degree of say over whether or not a drone killing would take place.
The U.S. drone program has killed hundreds of civilians in Pakistan and other countries.
Under Sec. Clinton, State Department officials approved almost every single proposed CIA drone assassination. They only objected to one or two attacks.
The emails that are at the heart of the FBI’s criminal investigation are 2011 and 2012 messages between U.S. diplomats in Pakistan and their State Department superiors in D.C., in which the officials approved drone strikes.
Clinton’s aides forwarded some of these emails to her personal email account, on a private server in her home in suburban New York.
These are the revelations of a report by The Wall Street Journal, based on information provided by anonymous congressional and law-enforcement officials who were briefed on the FBI’s probe." Salon.com
Nice phone. I had one of those blue Blackberrys a while back and I particularly liked the way you could listen to broadcast radio on it. Hmmm …
Sooo, from 2011 State was given the power to express an opinion as to whether or not particular armed UAV (drone) attacks could be made against individuals in places like Pakistan. This occurred while the aircraft was in flight near the target waiting for an "execute" order from the model airplane pilot flying it from somewhere on earth. That could be anywhere, literally anywhere, Nevada maybe?
This all begins to sound like a thriller movie, something like "The Bourne Legacy" in which a UAV is sent to do away with a couple of government assets who were no longer wanted among the living. In that case, the nasty civilian spooks sit in a building outside Washington while the USAF model airplane pilots fly the UAV to the target in interior Alaska.
According to the Salon and WSJ stories her incredibly irresponsible staff forwarded some of these coordination actions to Hilly in real time on her gadget worldwide wherever she may have been at the moment, this while all the while the bird flew around in circles in the sky and the model airplane pilot thought about what he/she would do when his shift ended that day.
