Hillary Clinton’s Shadow HUMINT Operation
Hillary Clinton ran an illegal human intelligence operation while she served as Secretary of State. This is an overlooked aspect of the story surrounding the private email server she used while in the same position. I co-wrote an analysis on this with a fellow intelligence professional.
Kent Clizbe served as a staff CIA case officer in the 1990s, and then as a contractor after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.
I served as an intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army Reserve for eight years and I am a veteran of the Iraq War. I also worked as a contractor in the intelligence community.
Here is an excerpt of the analysis Kent and I wrote on Mrs. Clinton’s shadow human intelligence operation. The full analysis is at Intel and CT Weekly.
Hillary Clinton struggles to justify the unjustifiable: her illegal use of a private email server while she served as Secretary of State and her actions and inaction during and after the Islamic terrorist attacks on the American installations in Benghazi, Libya during 2012. But few people have realized there is another story, reported on but under-analyzed, that could potentially be more damaging than both of these. And this story centers on how she ran her own private intelligence operation without the official consent or knowledge of the U.S. government. Mrs. Clinton appears to have violated the law by doing this. She most certainly damaged U.S. national security even more than what is already known and a special prosecutor should investigate to find out everything that she did.
Initial Rumors of the Operation
Tyler Drumheller was a retired CIA officer who rose to fame years ago when he went public with allegations designed to hurt the Bush administration and its war in Iraq. Mr. Drumheller claimed that the CIA ignored his warnings that the intelligence it had on Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction program was faulty. His version of what actually happened has since been challenged by both members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and former CIA Director George Tenet.
Mr. Drumheller returned to the public spotlight in 2013 when it began to appear that he was involved in gathering and reporting human intelligence (HUMINT) for Hillary Clinton while she served as Secretary of State. That appearance emerged after the Smoking Gun, RT and other outlets published information alleged to be from emails that a Romanian criminal stole from the email account of long-time Clinton supporter Sidney Blumenthal. (The Romanian criminal went by the name “Guccifer.” His real name is either Marcel Lazăr Lehel” or “Marcel-Lehel Lazar.” Since there are differing reports of his correct name this article will refer to him as “Guccifer.”) . . .
