If Hilliary Clinton, Lois Lerner, and

....Caroline Kennedy (among other senior embassy staffers) were all using (likely) unsecured private email accounts for conducting official business, one has to wonder whether the issue is their boss, or whether multiple Presidents--not to mention FOIA recipients and auditing agencies--have missed the fact that multiple government agencies have allowed leaders and others to ignore basic data security procedures.

It also strikes me that a great way to improve the situation is to end the practice of lifelong tenure and pensions for government workers, both of which promote the kind of "on the job retirement" for which government employees are rightly infamous.  To put it gently, it appears that multiple departments need a little bit of the expertise that private sector workers get in employee orientation.  Loosening the golden shackles would be a big improvement.
