Washington - The State Department said Thursday that portions of 275 emails released on New Year’s Eve from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state have been newly classified, bringing 2015 to a close for the Democratic presidential front-runner.

Clinton has said she didn’t send or receive information that was classified at the time via her personal email account, which was run on a private server at her New York home. Republicans have repeatedly questioned whether her use of a private email system put sensitive information at risk.

In all, the State Department said 1,274 of Clinton’s emails have been retroactively classified since the department started reviewing them for public release.

In one of the emails released , Clinton expressed outrage at a Hasidic Jewish newspaper that airbrushed her and another woman out of a famous photograph of officials in the White House Situation Room watching the raid on Osama Bin Laden.

The original photo had shown Clinton seated at the table, her hand covering her mouth. Counterterrorism director Audrey Tomason had also been pictured, standing at the back of the room. Both were blacked out in the newspaper’s reproduction of the photograph.

“The Jerusalem Post reported today that a NY Hasidic paper Der Zeitung published the sit room photo w/o me (or Audrey T) photoshopped out perhaps because no woman should be in such a place of power or that I am dressed immodestly!!” Clinton wrote in an email with the subject line “Unbelievable.”

The email was sent May 8, 2011, to aides, including Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, and to her daughter, Chelsea, under the alias Diane Reynolds.

The story at that time of the photoshopped image was first reported by the Blogger Failed Messiah.

Why is she not " P----d off" when she is forced to cover her hair when visiting Muslim countries? Why is she not "P----d" at Saudi Arabia which does not allow women to drive?
I am not defending the chareidi paper which air brushed her out, but she could reserve her anger for greater violators of women's rights.
The woman is a fraud from head to toe.

No hillul H' at all! It impresses even upon a lowly shmutzige shiksa like screechy hillary that we have much higher moral standards than she.

In the Email she wrote:
"....photoshopped out perhaps because no woman should be in such a place of power or that I am dressed immodestly!"

She was wrong on both counts!

Whatever anybody thinks about the airbrushing her out of the picture, the reason the "Der Tzeitung" did that was NOT for any of those 2 reasons she suggests.

The only valid complaint she did mention (in the top half of the Email) is "WH photos are not supposed to be altered."

She was insulted because she assumed it was about her and her incompetence to lead as a women. If she had known it was for Muslim/Jewish religious beliefs she wouldn't of cared.
She is a sick egomaniac.

It's fine when the AP alters photos to make it appear that Israelis are terrorizing the Arabs (the famous flotilla picture), but not when cropping her out for modesty "religious" reasons...
Where's her liberal mentality now???

She doesn't. The picture alteration was brought to her attention by her staff.

Why do you say Taliban?
Do you have a problem when a jew followes haluchas?
What makes you Jewish by not following the " Shulcun Aurich"?
I believe your way of thinking is talibani by. having a problem if a yiddish newspaper is exercising their constitutional rights of freedom of speech and religion?

Like you say, its the same reason as why that Amish looking fellow that went on subway in the 30's 40's and that assimilated yid who sat near him started berating him for going dressed like in the 'shtetel' then when the guy says 'i'm Amish I dress like my father , grand.., , he changed tunes and told him yes, you should upkeep your family tradition .... Also, Bostoner Rebbe in his book 'Angels....' writes there of same experience he had on a train those days...

So whats the svara....because kedusha and tuma rub each other wrong

P.S. The first story occurred by the Kossene Rebbe ,
Delancey St, Manhattan. Verified by his offspring

Die zeitung should have responded that they had to airbrush women out of the photograph so as not to offend their Muslim readership. When "Charlie" in Paris published a cartoon that was offensive to Muslims, many of their staff were murdered and the world announced "Je suis Charlie" . Nonetheless, Charlie no longer publishes cartoons offensive to Muslims. Die Zeitung wished to avoid a violent confrontation with Muslim extremists and preemptively retouched the offensive photo.

I say, "Je suis Die Zeitung".

If she was po'ed then, she should just wait until she's president. They will be publishing articles about her with pictures of all her male WH aids and cabinet. Maybe when she reads the articles she'll realize it is not about her being in a leadership position, rather it is the religious standards of modesty of certain communities. Not that I agree with airbrushing her out of pictures, but her intolerance for specifically Jewish religious strictures is very telling regarding her attitude towards Orthodox Judaism in general.

Yidden, do not vote for Hillary in 2016; she is no friend of ours. Both she and her husband are serial liars, and cannot be trusted!

Why would you lump Muslim and lehavdil ,Muslim beliefs ? BTW,if anyone knows the source for the no pics of women thing, I'd sure liked to know. It's surely not in the Shulchan Aurich as some here have suggested.
