When an old post written back in 2011 starts to get attention, I had to ask why. When I wrote it, it made absolutely no sense as to why Ms Callahan was hired to the second top position in security. A person who had lied about her resume that indicated her educational achievement was no more than back dated diplomas from a diploma mill. Not only that, but even when it was discovered, she kept moving up the government ladder. So follow me down the rabbit hole. Now we know why. I will include the old post in its entirety. Obama hires a security risk for sensitive post 2011. Hint: Ex-Clinton staffer ‘lost’ thousands of White House e-mails, booted by DHS for faking credentials. (Laugh line here!)
Hillary Was Burying Emails Since She Was First Lady…
Via NY Post:
While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal record keeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a governmentposition.
As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive WhiteHouse e-mails, known internally as “Project X.”
In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and otherscandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server.
The massive hole in White House archives covered a critical two-year period — 1996 to 1998 — when Republicans and special prosecutor Ken Starr were subpoenaing White House e-mails.
Despite separate congressional investigations and a federal lawsuit over ProjectX, high-level e-mails dealing with several scandals were never turned over. And the full scope of Bill and Hillary Clintons’ culpability in the parade of scandals was never known.
To those well-versed in Clinton shenanigans, this all sounds distressingly familiar.

Laura Crabtree Callahan testifying before the House Government Reform Committee in the Project X White House e-mail scandal investigation.
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 Department? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Callahan has her infamous background that reads like a B movie.

“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.”
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.
