BOMBSHELL: Hillary Clinton Played Mata Hari, Ordered U.S. Diplomats to Spy on UN Representatives

Monday, November 29, 2010

The latest WikiLeaks bombshell is a doozy.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played Mata Hari and ordered U.S. diplomats spy on other countries’ representatives at the United Nations, according to a directive signed by Clinton. Diplomats were told to collect information about e-mail accounts, credit cards and passwords, among other things.

The directive signed by Hillary Clinton, according to WikiLeaks documents seen by DER SPIEGEL.

The directive was named the “National Humint Collection Directive,” and came into force on July 31, 2009.

The information to be collected included personal credit card information, frequent flier customer numbers, as well as e-mail and telephone accounts. In many cases the State Department also requested “biometric information,” “passwords” and “personal encryption keys.” In the U.S., the term biometric information generally refers to fingerprints, passport photos and iris scans, among other things.

The U.S. State Department also wanted to obtain information on the plans and intentions of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and his secretariat relating to issues like Iran, according to the detailed wish list in the directive. The instructions were sent to 30 US embassies around the world, including the one in Berlin.

The detailed document also reveals which UN issues of greatest interest to the U.S. government. These included: “Darfur/Sudan,” “Afghanistan/Pakistan,” Somalia, Iran and North Korea. Other top issues included Paraguay and the Palestinian Territories, eight West African states including Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Senegal, as well as various states in Eastern Europe.

As justification for the espionage orders, Clinton emphasized that a large share of the information that the U.S. intelligence agencies works with comes from the reports put together by State Department staff around the world.

All of which begs the question? Who instructed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to order U.S. diplomats to spy on UN representatives?

  1. Stephan Iversonn says:

    I first heard about this yesterday and is usually the case in the US on a Sunday, it was near impossible to get any media information on the story.

    FOX News had Mike Huckabee yammering on about values, MSNBC had serial killers and CNN had their 5th rebroadcast of “CNN Heros.” So, I turned on my radio and picked up the CBN or Canadian Broadcast News and they were covering the story extensively.

    Apparently, Hillary had inside knowledge this story was about to drop at least a week ago and has been in damage control mode ever since calling UN diplomats to reassure and apologize to them.

    I, like you, would like to know, who Hillary got her marching orders from to give the go-ahead to direct our representative to spy at the United Nations? My guess is, the order came directly from the increasingly paranoid Barack Obama, who sees his presidency out of control.

  2. feminazi says:

    I intensely dislike Hillary Clinton and this revelation is a glimpse of what a Hillary Clinton White House would’ve looked like. She sees the world as most realists do: non-cooperative, dangerous and a threat to the USA. Even our allies — the few we have left, can’t be trusted.

  3. Woodcliffe says:

    Hillary Clinton reports to Barack Obama and Barack Obama is one scary son-of-a-bitch who is beginning to make George W. Bush look quite moderate by comparison.

    Now comes news that President Obama’s head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, instructed actor Mark Ruffalo be placed on a terror advisory after he organized screenings for a new documentary about natural gas drilling. Ruffalo wants to stop to natural gas drilling along the California coast and in ANWR. Ruffalo is taking it all in his stride and has laughed off the idea he could be a threat to national security.

    He told GQ magazine, “(It’s) pretty fucking funny.”

  4. Brigadoon says:

    Another diplomatic embarrassment for the United States. I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter who we elect to run the country. They’re all power hungry idiots acting on self-preservation and not the good of the country.

  5. Rachel says:

    The WikiLeaks documents also revealed Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu tried to pressure the U.S. into military action against Iran by exaggerating Iran’s nuclear capabilities. I predict here and now Bibi will be voted out of office next year over this. What a revealing insight into UN diplomacy and our role at the United Nations.

  6. In the latest Wiki Leaks drop it was revealed that North Korea supplied Iran with deadly missiles capable of reaching Israel. This is extremely grave.

    As I’ve said here and on other blogs, if there was ever a real and justifiable reason for the U.S. to engage in regime change, it’s North Korea and Iran.

    These two nations, in my view, represent a clear and present danger to the rest of the world.

    But instead, the U.S. is loitering in Iraq and Afghanistan and rumors now suggest, Obama has his eye on Pakistan or “Paw-ki-stahn,” as Obama prefers to pronounce it.

    Our foreign policy is out-of-control.

  7. Big Hank says:

    If I were Julian Assange I wouldn’t be worried about the USA but I would be very worried about a Saudi reprisal.

    For decades we’ve known the Saudis have operatives on the ground in the European Union and the USA. They have limitless money and a solid spy organization. Julian Assange must be at the top of their hit list today.

  8. retahyajyajav says:

    The real victims in the Wiki leak isn’t US troops as Obama Inc. is claiming: it’s US diplomacy.

    This leak will go down in history as the day US diplomacy died.

  9. Marcus Ybanez says:

    The United States of Embarrassment.

  10. VicoDANIEL says:

    We owe Communist China $900 billion. With interest repaid, this should reach between $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion.

    Meanwhile, Beijing is funneling the missiles from Pyongyang to Tehran and the US just looks the other way and smiles. We have less credibility than a $20 whore in Las Vegas during the height of convention season.

    What I glean from the Wiki documents is, President Obama and his team aren’t ready for primetime. They represent a third Bush term and the Wiki documents prove this.

  11. Just back from her excellent Asian tour, Hillary left for the Middle East today.

    Have you noticed whenever the frying pan gets hot, she’s on a flight to a foreign country or countries?

    If I were Hillary, I would leave for Saudi Arabia and Israel today too. She has a big mess to clean up.

  12. Peace Nick says:

    The spy game is never clean. But seriously? Why on earth are we spying on UN General Secretary Ban-Ki Moon?

    Maybe the ultimate solution is to relocate the United Nations to a better nation that understands the difference between “friend” and “enemy?” It’s apparent the good, Ole US of A is clueless.

  13. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    Yep. When Washington DC heats up, Hillary gets out of town ASAP.

    This is one of the many reasons I think she may run for president again. If I were advising her, I would tell her to stay away until things calm down.

  14. Tiny Dancer says:

    The day will come when no nation will want to send people to the UN to serve as a diplomat. Not as long as their treated as criminals by the US.

  15. Matteo says:

    Read this.

    Washington is running a secret intelligence campaign targeted at the leadership of the United Nations, including the secretary general, Ban Ki-moon and the permanent security council representatives from China, Russia, France and the UK.

  16. Carpe Diem says:

    Don’t blame WikiLeaks.
    Don’t blame Julian Assange.
    Don’t blame the internet.

    If fingerpointing is the order the day, blame the Obama administration for letting so much sensitive information be available for download. Obama is lazy and sloppy and he’s the one to blame for the dirty, little secrets of the U.S. government getting out.

  17. Walk on Socks says:

    What Carpe Diem said.

    I saw your comments on the New York Times and I agree 100%. The Wiki Leaks are a structural problem with the Obama administration failing to control vital and sensitive information in the information age.

    Now, the secrets are out and I love watching the rats scurry for cover.

  18. Adirondacky says:

    Carpe Diem and Walk on Socks described the Wiki Leaks problem better than I could ever hope to describe it. I agree 101% with their assessment.
