Madeleine Albright on Security in the Dep't of State


For John, BLUFThe idea she didn't understand is ludicrous.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



The internet presence, The Cipher Brief posted in its 8 July "Dead Drop" the following:
But what caught The Dead Drop's eye was Comey's comment that:  "While not the focus of our investigation, we also developed evidence that the security culture of the State Department in general, and with respect to use of unclassified e-mail systems in particular, was generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information found elsewhere in the government."  That is reminiscent of charges made 16 years ago when the Department was accused of systemic failure to protect secrets.  The charges stung at the time, causing then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to say:  "I don't care how skilled you are as a diplomat, how brilliant you may be at meetings, or how creative you are as an administrator... if you are not professional about security, you are a failure."
To repeat, "you are a failure." Regards  —  Cliff
