Clinton-Gore: Endangering America's Military Secrets ?

Clinton-Gore: Endangering America's Military Secrets ?

Source: Republican National Committee, Washington D.C., June 14, 2000.

The Clinton-Gore Administration, through policy changes and lax security, has compromised United States national security secrets. TodayÂ’s news of two missing Energy Department hard drives containing nuclear weapons secrets is just the latest in a series of security lapses by the Clinton-Gore Administration.

Lax Security

Energy Secretary Hazel O’Leary, who controlled access to America’s top nuclear secrets, eliminated color-coding on Energy Department badges that determined levels of security and access – because, she said, it was "discriminatory."

General Accounting Office agents, posing as federal agents or police with phony identification badges found on the Internet, were able to penetrate the State Department, Pentagon, CIA, FBI and Justice Department.

The Clinton-Gore Administration granted waivers to Loral Space and Communications, allowing the company whose CEO was the Democrat partyÂ’s single largest individual contributor in 1996 to provide missile launch secrets to Communist China.

The Clinton-Gore Administration eliminated the very specific security measures designed to safeguard the export of nuclear secrets, and transferred the jurisdiction from the State Department to the Commerce Department – over the objections of the Pentagon, the State Department, the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, the Justice Department and U.S. intelligence agencies.

Seven career foreign officers nominated for ambassadorial posts are being held up because they have committed a total of 102 violations of State Department security procedures. Each of the nominees has been cited for at least 10 security violations.

Missing: United States National Security Secrets

Missing: Two Energy Department computer hard drives with nuclear secrets from the "X Division" of Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratory – the most secret area in the compound. They contain data used in responding to nuclear accidents and terrorist threats, as well as Russian nuclear weapons program information.

Missing: Sixteen State Department laptop computers – of which at least one contained classified information.

Missing: A wide range of nuclear secrets taken by a Russian spy who for months loitered around the State Department wearing headphones and listening to a bug placed in a conference room just a few doors away from the Secretary of StateÂ’s office.

Missing: Classified information on all of the United States’ most advanced thermonuclear warheads – stolen by the Communist Chinese. Access was gained through national security policy changes implemented by the Clinton-Gore Administration.
