In the end, it seems that former Secretary of State and present Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who has them. Amazingly, former JCS Chairman and former Secretary of State Colin Powell has them, also.
Of course, it’s only Israel, though, so who cares? Not this reluctant (or so he says) Clinton supporter.
In a private email exchange last year leaked this week by hackers, former Secretary of State Colin Powell discussed Israel’s nuclear weapons capability with a friend, saying the country has 200 warheads.
To be clear: that’s a private, unclassified and unsecured email exchange. Not even treated as FOUO (which such information plainly is not).
The existence of its weapons program is considered classified information by both the Israeli and US governments.
Powell…told The Associated Press on Friday through a spokeswoman he was referring to public estimates of Israel’s nukes.
Sure. Of course he was.
Even President Barack Obama’s (D) State Department knows better than this:
Asked about the issue at a briefing Friday, State Department spokesman John Kirby also declined to comment.
“I’m not going to discuss matters of intelligence,” Kirby said.
Again I ask: do any Democrats, Democrat supporters, or closet Democrats care about security? Other than Admiral Kirby, I mean?
