As the situation surrounding Hillary Clinton's possession of top secret, classified information on her personal email server continues to get worse, comparisons between the former Secretary of State and those prosecuted for improper handling of classified information are being made. Of course, the case of General David Petraeus has come up, but there are others in the military who have been prosecuted or severely punished for doing far less to damage national security in comparison to the Democrat presidential candidate.
Take for example Marine Reserves Major Jason Brezler, who exposed classified information in 2012 in order to warn fellow Marines about corrupt and violent Afghan Police Chief Asadullah Sherzad. Eventually, Sherzad instructed one of his minor officers to carry out an insider attack by killing three Marines who were working out and unarmed in their gym. A reminder of the horror:
An Afghan police officer shot and killed three U.S. Marines after sharing a meal with them before dawn Friday and then fled into the desolate darkness of southern Afghanistan, the third attack on coalition forces by their Afghan counterparts in a week.
Thirty-one coalition service members have now died this year at the hands of Afghan forces or insurgents disguised in Afghan uniforms, according to NATO— a dramatic rise from previous years.
Brezler is facing a dishonorable discharge from the Marine Corps for providing requested information to Congressman Peter King that was deemed classified. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is running for president and joking about Snapchat messages "disappearing all on their own." More details from The Daily Beast:
No matter how much classified material is found in her personal email server, Hillary Clinton will no doubt continue campaigning to become our next president.
Meanwhile, a decorated Marine officer who has deployed four times faces being discharged from the corps he loves because he used his personal email to send a single classified report as an urgent warning when lives were at stake.
The stateside message from Marine Reserves Major Jason Brezler to Forward Operating Base Delhi in Now Zad, Helmand Province, Afghanistan, went unheeded. Three young Marines were shot to death as they worked out in a gym by an Afghan teen brought on the base by the same corrupt and double-dealing pedophile police chief whom Brezler had declared to be an immediate threat.
Yet the only person to be investigated in connection with the killings is Brezler, the Marine who sought to prevent them.
Yesterday it was reported the number of classified documents found on Clinton's private email server has ballooned to over 300. The good news is the same prosecutor who took down General Petraeus is looking into her case.
