Russia Today Publishes Excerpts of Allegedly Hacked Benghazi Emails
Russia Today has released excerpts of what are said to be highly sensitive emails sent from a former Clinton administration staffer to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton following the September attacks on the consulate in Benghazi, obtained this week by a hacker known as "Guccifer."
"Guccifer" claims to have obtained the emails by compromising the AOL account of Sidney Blumenthal, a former assistant to President Bill Clinton. If authentic, the emails appear to contain information about the Benghazi attack, and were leaked by the hacker to a number of select news outlets and other individuals, including many members of Congress.
"Guccifer" had previously breached an email account associated with
former president George W. Bush and had also defaced the Facebook page
of former Secretary of State Colin Powell. This latest breach comes in the wake of the recent doxing of numerous celebrities and high profile political figures.
The excerpts of the allegedly leaked Benghazi memos are presented here by way of Russia Today:
