Al-Qaida’s still killing people but, hey, we’re hacking their website! Yeah, that’s the ticket! And she’s revealing this because…? Oh yeah, when you do stuff for a campaign one must brag!

The State Department has launched a different sort of raid against Al Qaeda — hacking into Al Qaeda websites in Yemen.

In a rare public admission of the covert cyber war against extremists, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says cyber experts based at the State Department hacked Yemeni tribal websites, replacing Al Qaeda propaganda that bragged about killing Americans.

“Within 48 hours, our team plastered the same sites with altered versions of the ads that showed the toll Al Qaeda attacks have taken on the Yemeni people,” Clinton said Wednesday.

In response, “Extremists are publicly venting their frustration and asking supporters not to believe everything they read on the Internet,” she said.

Yeah, that’s really cool. Too bad it’s not stopping al-Qaida in Yemen and elsewhere from killing innocent people, but hey, it’s sumthin!

Note this little gem, which just adds to the understanding of why things are going so badly all around the world:

Clinton was speaking alongside Adm. Bill McRaven, head of the U.S. Special Operations Command, at a conference of hundreds of U.S. and international special operations commanders — the two senior leaders sending a tacit message to their sometimes warring tribes of troops and diplomats that they have to get along

In other words, our intelligence community is at each other’s throats. That’s another great little reveal for the world! Thanks Hillary, now that’s you’ve earned your ‘hacker’ creds, you can go enjoy some beer and dancing.

      No, that was her reaction to Mooseshell cutting an SBD after she hit the “All You Can Eat” tamale and refried bean bar at El Bandito’s!

    Great, so let’s tell the whole world we did it and crow about it because it’s definitely something to be proud of.

    Call me crazy, but I’d rather be out there wiping up the desert floor with their butts. After the nearly three thousand people they killed ten years ago that sounds an awful lot more appealing.

    I feel sorry for the New York Times editor, who probably thought they had the exclusive on revealing America’s most delicate secrets.

    Because keeping a “covert cyber war” a secret isn’t as important as reelecting Barack Obama.

      Righto, IloiloKano! BO’s already gonna get a whuppin’ for letting the Bin Laden movie people in where they should not be.

    165 days, 3961 hours, 237671 minutes, 14260235 seconds more of this crap…. (Not that *I* am counting 🙂 )

    Looks like Hill just got clipped with a sharp left hook, doesn’t it?

    Today, Hillary came out and said that the tyrannical regime of Syria’s Bashar Assad must come to an end. Funny, but wasn’t it only a few months ago that this “smartest woman on the planet” was touting Assad as a reformer? Well, come on, girlfriend. Which is it? Make up your mind. Is Assad a humanitarian or a brutal dictator? The fate of hundreds of Syrian dissidents could rest in your hands.

    If that is the best Hillary can do, she should just go party or golf or something. Like her dear leader, Furkel.
