Hacker Distributes Confidential Memos Sent to Hillary Clinton on Benghazi Attack, Libya

Family Security Matters

Armed with confidential memos to Hillary Clinton that were stolen  from the  e-mail account of a former White House aide, a hacker has  distributed some of  the documents to a wide array of congressional  aides, political figures, and  journalists worldwide.

In a series of weekend e-mail blasts, the hacker known as “Guccifer”   disseminated four recent memos to Clinton from Sidney Blumenthal, a  longtime  confidant of the former Secretary of State.

The 64-year-old Blumenthal, who worked as a senior White House  adviser to  President Bill Clinton, had his AOL e-mail account hacked  lastweek by  “Guccifer,” who has conducted similar illegal assaults against a growing list of  public figures, including Colin Powell, relatives and friends of the Bush  family, and a top United Nations official.

The hacker’s e-mails went to hundreds of recipients, though the  distribution  lists were dotted with addresses for aides to Senate and  House members who are  no longer in office. But many of the addresses to  which the Blumenthal memos  were sent are good (though it is unclear  whether karl@rove.com is a solid  address for the Republican mastermind).

Most of the e-mail recipients were sent four separate memos that were   e-mailed to Clinton by Blumenthal during the past five months. Each  memo  dealt with assorted developments in Libya, including the September  11, 2012  attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. One memo marked  “Confidential” was sent  to Clinton on September 12.

As TSG reported last week,  after Blumenthal’s e-mail account was  compromised, the hacker searched  it for e-mails sent to Clinton, and further  sorted the mail to segregate  any attachment–like Word files–that were  included in Blumenthal’s  correspondence to Clinton. Many of these pilfered  documents were memos  to Clinton on foreign policy and intelligence matters.

While “Guccifer” appears to have downloaded many of these  attachments, the  hacker opted not to send the actual Word files to those  on the e-mail blast  list (likely as a security measure since the  downloaded files could contain  metadata that could lead to the hacker,  who is the target of a mushrooming  federal criminal investigation).

Instead, “Guccifer” copied the text from the four Blumenthal memos  and  pasted them into separate new files. The hacker then made screen grabs  of the  new files and e-mailed those to the names on the weekend  distribution list. As  seen above, “Guccifer” made sure, of course, to  choose the despised Comic Sans  font (and a pink background) when  recreating the memos sent to Clinton by  Blumenthal, who is pictured at  left with the Clintons.

  1. Good Job !
    Keeping throwing out all their dirty secrets for the whole world to see in disgusting black and white. These people have to be run out of our country.
    They are traitors of the highest degree and unwelcomed in America. We are fed up with the whole lot of them.

  2. AMEN, when are the people going to get the BALLS to IMPEACH the bastard, we have in the white house. he is not even an AMERICAN. when are the people going to understand that he does not do what he says. he is telling people what they want to hear, and keeps on with his LIES. if we live that long, lets at least get rid of all the Socialist Democrats, and all the Republicans that don’t have a backbone, and don’t want to impeach this IDIOT. GOD BLESS AMERICA, and GOD BLESS THE PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY. AMEN………………

  3. Well, looks like the “geeks” rule!!! That’s great!

  4. We DO have a legal remedy that no one has filed. It IS the responsibility of the House and Senate to protect us AGAINST the President if he goes rogue…which Obama has done! They haven’t. This can be filed against them.
