WikiLeaks Found 1,200 Iraq Emails in State Dept’s Clinton Trove

Previously Released Emails Part of WikiLeaks 'Searchable Archive' Effort

by Jason Ditz, July 04, 2016

Emphasizing its ongoing efforts to produce a fully searchable archive of the 30,000+ emails on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server, as released by the State Department, WikiLeaks today offered a collection of 1,258 of those emails which covers all Iraq War discussion.

Again, none of the emails were new, and simply included the batches released in the past in a sorted form. The State Department releases of the emails came in multiple batches, the last of them in March, as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.

The emails cover the period between June of 2010 and August of 2014. The period covers the end of the US occupation of Iraq, as well as the aftermath, covering the period leading up to the new US war in Iraq.

Clinton’s use of a private email server for official communications while serving as a Secretary of State was highly controversial, though the Justice Department has repeatedly shrugged off suggestions that it was explicitly illegal.
