While Hillary Clinton’s email trail about the Benghazi debacle has raised a lot of (justifiable) ruckus, and while there is concern over security leaks from her email system, there is a larger concern to focus on.

The real concern about Hillary is not the question of what she’s hiding in her emails, it’s her judgment in using a private email server to begin with. Even had she carefully preserved the emails and turned them all (ALL) over to the folks in charge of official archives, and even had she been immediately forthcoming and cooperative in the Benghazi probe, and even had she turned over the entire drive instead of copying emails to a thumb drive given to her lawyer, even then, the use of a personal server and mixing personal and official emails was horrible judgment. Or was it?

Maybe the decision was borne simply out of the hubris, indeed the chutzpah shown over all of Hillary’s lifetime that made her use a personal server. And why? For control. And why would she want that sort of control? Simple: to control whatever message might come out of her email exchanges.

And she wants us to think the server choice was merely for convenience. How many minions do you think she had available to administer her technology? A dozen? More?  Her goal was simply to preserve the ability to control the message, i.e. avoid contradiction of her statements about Benghazi or any other scandal that might arise.

The added dimension of Hillary’s incompetence, beyond the Benghazi cover-up, is that it happened on her watch to begin with. The media and pundits have sufficiently described how embassy protection was lacking and that the gaps were known to the State Department, i.e. to Hillary, so I won’t try to duplicate that discussion here. Hillary and Obama share that failure to protect our embassies.

Do you want Hillary answering the phone at 3AM?
