Hillary Replied To Drone Email With Decorating Question
While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton accidentally replied to an email about a fallen U.S. drone in Pakistan with her thoughts about decorations.
“I like the idea of these,” she wrote in response to the email containing an Associated Press story about a tussle between Pakistani soldiers and Taliban fighters for the U.S. drone. “How high are they? What would the bench be made of?”
“And I’d prefer two shelves or attractive boxes/baskets/containers on one,” she continued. “What do you think?”
Her deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, who had forwarded the story, was confused. “Did u mean to send to me?” she asked.
“No — sorry!” Hillary replied. “Also, pls let me know if you got a reply from my ipad. I’m not sure replies go thru.” (RELATED: Millenials Have No Idea Hillary Clinton Is Old)
AP reporter Jack Gillum extracted this gem from a pile of emails released by the Department of State in response to a 2013 Freedom of Information Act request for emails between Hillary and her senior advisers regarding drone strikes and U.S. surveillance programs.
She’s come under scrutiny after it was discovered she used a personal email on a private server she set up as Secretary of State. She claims her staff reviewed all of the emails and deleted those they deemed personal and irrelevant to her work, then turned the rest over to the Department of State.
“At the end, I chose not to keep my private personal emails,” she said at a recent press conference defending herself. “Emails about planning Chelsea’s wedding, or my mother’s funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends, as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the other things you typically find in inboxes. No one wants their personal emails made public, and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy.”
Fortunately, this private email didn’t make the cut. (RELATED: Hillary Is Already Telling Jokes About Her Private Email Account)
