When Hillary Clinton is faced with a problem, the Presidential candidate and former US Secretary of State tends to believe that executing the problem is standard, acceptable behavior.
Who will ever forget her giddiness after she murdered Gaddafi and plunged Libya into the abyss.
True Pundit is reporting that Hillary Clinton and the US State Department were actually considering “droning” Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Just another case of Hillary acting like Hillary, when it comes to dealing with problems in her pursuit of power.
The Obama Administration and US State Department were under pressure to silence Assange and Wikileaks in the months before the site was ready to dump 250,000 diplomatic cables from 1966 to 2010…The dump as referred to as CableGate.
Hillary’s solution to prevent the document release…
“Can’t we just drone this guy?” Clinton asked, according to unidentified state department sources.
Wikileaks has posted a link to the story on their official Twitter account along with a screenshot of the True Pundit article…

Clinton and the state department held numerous meetings to discuss what could be done about Assange and his site which had already exposed damning military secrets about the war in Afghanistan and Iraq before the promised document dump was to come. The department was under pressure from both the White House and foreign governments to silence Wikileaks.
True Pundit reports the people in the room with Clinton on November 23, 2010 laughed at her comment, until it became clear that the then-secretary of state was serious. Clinton was reportedly fuming and referred to Assange as a “soft target.”
Other options considered by the US State Department included offering a reward to anyone who secured Assange’s capture and extradition back to the United States.
Unnamed sources said that the US State Department put a $10 million price on Assange’s head.
RT adds that…
Following the meeting, Clinton aide Ann-Marie Slaughter emailed Clinton and aides Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan with the subject, “RE an SP memo on possible legal and nonlegal strategies re Wikileaks.”
The email contained an attachment “SP Wikileaks doc final11.23.10.docx.” which has not been found by federal investigators investigating Clinton’s use of a private email server. Wikileaks itself does not have this attachment.
Five days after the meeting, Wikileaks began releasing the CableGate files, on November 28, 2010.
