    Former intelligence and military officials were swift to reply Friday to Hillary Clinton’s contention that government over-classification of materials are “the real problem,” not her use of an unsecured private email server to conduct official business during her four years as secretary of state.

    “Our ridiculous classification rules” are “the real problem,” she tweeted this morning, quoting a former Justice Department official.

    Senior military and intelligence officials immediately fired back.

    “It’s not up to her to decide what level it’s classified at. It’s up to her to obey the law, and clearly she did not,” Lt. Col. Col James Williamson told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Williamson entered Special Forces in 1988 and retired in 2012.

    “If someone doesn’t have the sense to recognize classified material, they shouldn’t be in such a sensitive position, much less the secretary of state,” Williamson said.

    Similarly, Brig. Gen. Kenneth Berquist said “she jeopardized every piece of information that went across her private server line. This is a very good example of how her ‘inconvenience’ put us at risk in the United States.”

    Berquist added that “this is hubris. This is an example where people say, ‘I don’t play by the rules.'”

    Aren't leaders supposed to take responsibility for their actions?

    What ever happened to that idea?
