Thousands of e-mails, handed over, later. Bearing the 'fruits' of the, republican, christian(?), garden of eden tree, not, wished for from one of the, oh so, many conservative conspiracy, media hyped, 'scandals'! Which goes to show, be careful what you, politically, are using to destroy a long time rival, it may come back to bite you, big time!
If this was in an e-mail. on her server or the State Departments servers, that means it was just floating around for anyone to see, either the document itself or worse a link to the document!!! Wonder what else the State Department released along with the thousands of Hillary e-mails, especially knowing Chilcot's back is to the wall and the final official public report release is, hopefully, soon to come!!
Memo from Colin Powell to President George Bush in the latest batch of Hillary Clinton's emails to be released outlines the former Prime Minister's willingness to back America against Saddam Hussein
18 Oct 2015 - The controversy over Tony Blair’s decision to back George Bush over the Iraq war has been rekindled after a memo emerged showing the Prime Minister pledged to support an invasion a year ahead of the conflict.
Details of the Prime Minister’s readiness to back the US in bringing down Saddam Hussein are contained in a note from Colin Powell, then Secretary of State, to George Bush, ahead of Mr Blair’s April 2002 summit with the President in Crawford Texas.
The memo was found in a batch of secret emails on the private server of Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, which was made available by the US courts.
At that time Tony Blair’s public position was that Britain was seeking a diplomatic, rather than military solution, to the crisis.
But, according to Mr Powell’s memo, which has been seen by the Mail on Sunday, Britain’s support for military action was already assured.
Mr Bush was told that the UK Prime Minister “will be with us”. The President was assured “The UK will follow our lead”. read more>>>
Which was all hinted at in the very public parts of the testimony in the early days of the Brit Iraq War Inquiry, thus no longer 'secret' nor 'classified', in testimony and reports at time about and since, in some of these and much more throughout:
Drip, drip, drip, "He recalled noting that: "the dog didn't bark - it grizzled." "Don't forget - this 'grizzling' for regime change was 6 months BEFORE 9/11.". drip, drip, drip, "But there was a 'sea change' in attitude after the atrocities, with former national security adviser Condolezza Rice targeting Iraq on the very day of the outrage.", drip, drip, drip, "George Bush tried to make a connection between Iraq and al-Qaida in a conversation with Tony Blair three days after the 9/11 attacks, according to Blair's foreign policy adviser of the time.", drip, drip, drip, "There was "a touching belief [in Washington] that we shouldn't worry so much about the aftermath because it was all going to be sweetness and light".", drip, drip, drip, "Boyce mentions the "dysfunctionalism" of Washington. He says that he would find himself briefing his American counterparts on what was happening in different parts of the US administration. Rumsfeld was not sharing information", drip, drip, drip...........!
The memos are likely to lead to demands for Sir John Chilcot to reopen his inquiry into the Iraq war.

The Royal United Services Institute said the UK could face a bill of nearly £65bn, once the cost of long-term care for injured veterans was factored in, with most of the money was spent on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The study, called Wars in Peace, said both conflicts were largely “strategic failures” for the UK, The Guardian reported."
"And when you add up to the Department of Defense, Department of State, CIA, Veterans Affairs, interest on debt, the number that strikes me the most about how much we're committed financially to these wars and to our current policies is we have spent $250 billion already just on interest payments on the debt we've incurred for the Iraq and Afghan wars." 26 September 2014

Chris Hayes MSNBC: "If you can run a deficit to go to war, you can run a deficit to take care of the people who fought it" In response to Republican opposition to expanding Veterans' benefits on fiscal grounds
Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, let alone the results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, issues! As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded, VA budget is still borrowed thus added, problem creating, costs that shouldn't exist!
