WHAT ALL AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON’S ALLEGED SAP COMPROMISE--MAJ. ED COET, USA (RET)
My name is Ed Coet. I am a retired US Army Intelligence Officer. In my last job in the army I was the Chief of the Human Intelligence Branch for the US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany. In that capacity I was also the Designated Program Manager for a Special Access Program (SAP) like the SAP that Hillary Clinton is alleged to have compromised in the most recent State Department Inspector General report to congress and which has been widely reported in the news. Here is what I personally know about SAP’s and what I can attest to in an unclassified forum:
1. The names of each SAP are themselves classified Top Secret because the information within the SAP are far and above Top Secret.
2. SAP’s are so sensitive that even people who have security clearances giving them access to Top Secret Sensitive Compartment Information (TS SCI), an enormously high security clearance level, cannot have accesses to a SAP’s unless they receive a special indoctrination into the SAP based on an operational “must know” that exceeds all other “need to know” standards.
3. Being “read on” for a SAP is far more than acknowledging in writing that you have been briefed on the SAP. It is an in-depth “indoctrination” into the given SAP, and each SAP is itself compartmented separately from other SAPS. Having access to one SAP does not give you access to another SAP, and in fact rarely does. Only a tiny handful of people have knowledge of all SAP’s. SAP’s are the most stringently compartmented and protected information in the entire US government.
4. Unlike Top Secret SCI which is maintained in highly secure Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilitates (SCIF’s) managed by specially trained Special Security Officers (SSO’s) at various levels of command, every single SAP is managed by an individually designated Program Manager for each individual SAP covering an entire theater of operations. In other words, SAP Program Managers are far fewer in number than there are SSO’s. SSO’s are not cleared to even know about SAP’s or to maintain information about them in their already enormously secure SCIF’s. How SAP’s are secured cannot be discussed because of the sensitivity beyond Top Secret nature in which it is done.
5. Unlike individuals with the highest Top Secret SCI access security clearances, who must undergo a special background information with periodic “bring-up” background investigation, those tiny few who have access to SAP’s must also endure periodic polygraph tests in addition to the most comprehensive of special background investigations. I used to have to schedule four-star generals and admirals to be polygraphed in order for them to maintain their access to my SAP. Many generals and admirals who obviously have the highest security clearances still did not rate being indoctrinated into my SAP. In fact, they didn’t even know the SAP existed.
6. Compromise of a SAP is the single most dangerous security violation that can ever happen to the USA. Even the enormously damaging revelations of the Edward Snowden’s TOP Secret SCI security compromise does not reach the level of a SAP compromise.
7. To put SAP information in to an unsecure sever like Hillary Clinton’s unsecure server is a class one felony that could, in some cases, result in life in prison. That is because such a compromise is so dangerous that it could and likely will result in the death of people protected by and within the scope of the SAP.
As a former SAP Program Manager I believe it is inconceivable that if it is verified that Hillary Clinton’s server actually had SAP information on it that she could possibly escape indictment and criminal prosecution. As hard as it is to imagine, that would even be worse then electing to not prosecute a mass murdering serial killer because even they could not inflict as much damage on our country as the compromise of a SAP. Compromise of a SAP not only could -- but without doubt would -- cause serious damage to our national security.
If it is true that Hillary Clinton had SAP information on her unsecure server, whether it was marked or not, you can be sure that the FBI will strongly recommend that charges be brought against Hillary Clinton and continue in an exhaustive investigation to trace back to every single person that had even the tiniest role in this unbelievable security compromise.
If the Attorney General, through “prosecutorial discretion,” elected not to prosecute this crime, I believe congress would have no alternative but to impeach her, and the FBI would then have no choice but to conduct a criminal investigation of her for a deliberate cover up –- so grave is this security violation.
If President Obama were to pardon Hillary Clinton for a compromise of this magnitude he would render himself in the historical record as an “enemy of the state,” and could himself face criminal prosecution –- so grave is such a security compromise. Nobody, not even the POTUS could gets away with something like this in our system of government. If anyone could escape persecution for compromising a SAP, we are deep trouble as a nation. No president who loves this country and is true to his oath would ever allow anyone, not even his or her closest and most loved relative, to get away with a SAP compromise. It is simply unimaginable that this could ever happen.
If the ongoing investigation finds that Hillary Clinton compromised a SAP, then we all should know with certainty, regardless of political persuasion, that she is entirely unfit to hold public office of any kind let alone President of the USA -- and ALL Americans should never tolerate it. Compromising a SAP is an absolute “disqualifier” for public office and access to our nations most sensitive information - period.

P.S. It is my sincere hope that each of you will share this article, to help other Americans understand how grave Hillary Clinton’s alleged SAP compromise is. We can’t allow anyone so careless with this level of information to have access to any classified information ever again for as long as she lives. This would surely render her unqualified and unfit to hold any public office let alone POTUS if this allegation proves to be true.
The USA can not afford Hillary.
SURELY NOT LIKE WE KNEW WE COULD NOT AFFORD OHITLER
RUBIO IS ESTAB SAME AS ABOVE
Killery is a Communist ! Everyone needs to watch: The Clinton Chronicles by,Larry Nichols. The sorry excuse for a woman is pure evil !!
Try also a series by Dennis Lynch called "They Come to America" if you really care to see how bad things have gotten. Warning: It'll ruin your whole day or longer to get that info.
Robbie, I have the video and the book, Clinton Chronicles.. Made my hair stand out.. Criminals all of them, including associates..
Hitlary for Prison is her name and Treason is her GAME..!!! Just look at BO's jacket, know one even knows who this man really is...Treason is truly the Name of of their Game..!!! If people don't like what I just wrote, to bad, it's my 1st Amendment Right..!!!
What scares me the very worst, is the fact that such a Anti-American would be associated with such a group, much less be a part of it. Obviously, like everything else about her, it is all about her, and her own intents, needs, and wants. She should never have been allowed to be privy to any sensitive information about this Country, because anything she knows is converted into currency and goes into her off shore bank accounts, as she uses it for leverage to make her even more financially secure.
The very fact that she even was permitted to have knowledge of such sensitive information, was itself ignorant, much less that fact that she was brazen enough and stupid enough to use her own private server to work with it, and handle it, is a slap in the face of this great Nation, and a determent to all who live within it's borders. I hope they follow the Hellish brick road, and take down all within her knowledge group, up to and inclusive of the Traitor sitting in our power chair.
The sheer ignorance of giving the likes of her, a elite shadow, is akin to giving the winning numbers for the next 5 power ball draws to the Rothchilds, and or the Bilderbergs.
What I most fail to comprehend, is how with all she has done negatively to this Country, and People, and her sheer lack of caring while our Embassy, and our Ambassador Chris Stephens and his 3 agents are being brutally attacked, and with knowledge known over a month ahead of the attack, can even be considered to run for our Country’s Presidential seat.
She is a Traitor, a Philanthropist, a wealth vacuum of the tax payers money, sells herself to the highest bidder, and accomplishes nothing in any office she has ever held, yet she is revered by the populace, and allowed the distinction of even having her name on the ballot to run for the office.
Please, someone, anyone, tell me what it is that qualifies, distinguishes, entitles or even permits her name to be on that honored list?.
If there is a article, commentary, or documentary which sheds her in a good light, please put that link here, so that I might see what gives her the green light for anything, other than dog catcher. She is homely enough to scare ten bulldogs off the back of a meat wagon, her form is all out of peroration, she looks like she is 40 years older than she is and has, that I am aware of, nothing positive within her years in Government to her credit. I am pretty sure she ran the Whitehouse, while Bill did not have sex with that woman, and that she has the same inclinations, as does he.
She is a socialist, she too is anti Judeo-Christian, she is for the LGBT crowd, she also wants all the illegals in this Country, likely for the votes, as does NObama. She is Pro Islam, although I cannot even fathom the idea of her living under Shiria law, as it would be a most terrible thing for her to have to cover that mask she wears for a face.
Have I completely lost my senses, or is she as I believe, a joke on America, and completely unworthy of any of the accolades she receives?.
If she is made President of this Country, nothing will have changed from the first Clinton Presidential fiasco, except the title. All else, will be just as it was the first time around.
Just in case you have not figured it out, I am anti Clinton for President. All of those who say Trump will be a bad thing for America, as President, just take a look at the alternative, and I think you will most plainly see that he could be nothing but a plus over that mistake, should we decide to make it.
If we do indeed have elections, and Trump gets the Conservative nod, He will most assuredly have my vote. If he does not, then I will vote for the selection chosen by the vote, as Conservative/Republican. I will not vote for Clinton, nor will I vote for Bernie Sanders.
In my VHO, any who do not vote, vote none of the above, independent, or Democrat/Left, in my opinion, is not a true American Citizen. The Democrats ALWAYS have a strong turn out, the Republicans for the last several years, have voted only in the 40-50 percent range of registered voters. What does this say about our Party?. We have given the vote to the enemies of our Country, quite long enough. It is your Privilege, your Duty, and your obligation to vote for America, and it’s betterment. Get your butts out, and show 100% voters to registered Republican, or cry in silent, about how badly things are going for this Country. Be aware of your surroundings, do not be intimidated, and watch closely to see that your vote, indeed, goes for whom you cast it.
Voting machines, despite what the officials say, can and are vulnerable to hackers, and those who wish to make the voting go in their favor. We should go back to the paper ballot, and have the counting done under strict scrutiny of both parties, to keep it as honest as possible. We do not know how, and or by whom, our votes are now tabulated. With machines, we have no clue where the information goes once the votes are cast. We do not know who does the final tabulations of them. These facts alone are scary, untrustworthy, and could easily be fixed/altered.
Exactly why Trump is so popular..............America knows she will get away with all the criminal behavior you describe FF and that the establishment candidates can be counted on to continue the same path we've been on for decades. Trump is of concern to me in some areas, but he also gives some hope of departing from the establishment, media clowns, and dem/rep party hacks.
I'll take my chances with a Trump over ineligible Rubio/Cruz and establishment Kasich.....
I do not like Mr Trump all that much but we need to get him into office. He will try to do what he says as his ego does not like him not to succeed. We cannot fold like the Tea Party did.I know because my chapter now just has pot luck suppers. You younger generation need to get off your fat butts and FIGHT for this country. Leave the damn electronics that are frying your brains and think about your country. Stop with the blogging already and do something. I am 82 and out talking to people everyday, most will not listen because all they do is watch the main stream media and tell me I get my SS ck what do I care who is president. The blacks, the illegals will put that lying pants suit lesbian in if we sit back and do nothing. Remember your kids and grandkids will be living in hell if we do not fight.
Jane Erway You are so correct..I think Trump will be the one to open the can of worms that could place many people in prison.. I want Trump to finish this job... I think he truly will. It will be long and hard, but he can do it.
To, Jane & Carolyn, I back Donald Trump all the way, I think he really loves his country ,& wants to fix it,& he can!! no one else will even try,they will just go a head & work for the NEW World Order !! I believe Trump wants to keep the country the way it used to be, & he has the guts & money to back it up !!! Jane Er way I am 84,keep up the good work !!
Impeach Loretta Lynch ? That would require Congress to actually hold one of the political elites accountable! Look how long they've been dragging their heals on this investigation! I'm pretty sure we can count on those bastards to protect their own. They wouldn't want to set a precedent that would threaten the rest of them. Remember Slick Willy? With all the corruption they had on him all they would go after him on was just one of his many affairs and his lying about it.
