Obama hires a security risk for sensitive post


So who is minding the store? Anyone wonder why Laura was chosen? Anyone care? If she can get hired, anyone can apparently.

The administration in May quietly hired Laura Callahan for a sensitive post at the U.S. Cyber Command, a newly created agency set up to harden military networks as part of an effort to prevent a “cyberspace version of Pearl Harbor.” Matrix in our Comment section asks “how many more can we sustain”  I ask why do we need a new one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Callahan has her infamous background that reads like a B movie.

Ex-Clinton staffer ‘lost’ thousands of White House e-mails, booted by DHS for faking credentials

Former co-workers say they’re shocked that Callahan passed a security background check and landed another sensitive post inside the federal government.

“She’s a security risk,” said a government computer specialist. “I don’t know how she got clearance.”

“We’re fuming about it,” said another federal employee. “Knowing her, I don’t see how she could ever be 100-percent honest.”

An elite team of computer technicians assembled by the Obama administration to protect Pentagon networks from cyberattack shockingly includes a former Clinton official who “lost” thousands of archived emails under subpoena and who more recently left the Department of Homeland Security under an ethical cloud related to her qualifications, WND has learned.

Investigators found that Callahan paid a diploma mill thousands of dollars for her bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees in computer science. She back-dated the degrees, all obtained between 2000 and 2001, to appear as if she earned them in 1993, 1995 and 2000, respectively. She landed the job of deputy DHS chief information officer in 2003.

The Defense Department last week revealed it recently suffered a massive cyberattack, even as it announced a new strategy to actively combat online threats to national security.

In March, hackers working for a foreign government broke into a Pentagon contractor’s computer system and stole 24,000 files. Previous cyberattacks have been blamed on China or Russia.

    Looking at her “qualifications” I wouldn’t let her do something as mundane as changing a graphics card.

    Damn, if somebody wrote a novel and including all the craziness on the part of the Obama administration, the publisher would reject the novel and say, “Too far-fetched!”

    Obama’s march is indeed picking up speed, and I think I know why: he’s concerned that he might not get re-elected; hence, he has to destroy as much as possible before departing in January 2013. Probably operating on the orders of Soros in that regard.

      AOW — I would say you are keeping up. I enjoy your twitters! This, in spite of a summer season when you and Mr.AOW should be relaxing. But we are in the final push to save our great nation. Many gave far more than a few of us conservative bloggers are asking of ourselves.

    Don’t answer that. I may not be able to take it.

    Scary line in the article is ‘a new agency created’ …. how many ‘new agencies’ can we sustain? And why? Between the Czar’s and ‘new agencies’ Obama is creating a shadow government. Just look at the agencies created by Obamacare:

    Lovely. Let me guess, she is a Marxist. Under the Clinton/Obama playbook that makes her qualified for any job in government. This administration makes me sick.
