In reference to Hillary Clinton's private email account, why is is that no one in the State Department, executive branch, etc., ever noticed what her email address was? ["Clinton should turn over email server to the gov't," Editorial, March 6.]

When they had to contact her, what email address did they use and never realize that it was not a ".gov" address? I would imagine that all during a crisis such as the Benghazi, Libya, attacks, email was going back and forth with some kind of regularity.

The State Department fired the ambassador to Kenya in part because of his use of a private email account but never noticed that to contact the boss they had to use Clinton's private email address? This violated policy, and could have compromised the safety and security of America.

When President Barack Obama was asked about her email account, he said the first he had heard about it was on the news. This administration, that promised to be the most transparent, has been anything but.
