Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received information on her private email server about the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi that was classified Friday at the FBI's request.
The email in question, forwarded to Clinton by her deputy chief of staff, relates to reports of arrests in Libya of possible suspects in the attack
The information was not classified at the time the email was sent and was upgraded from unclassified to "secret" on Friday, according to State Department officials. The officials said 23 words of the November 2012 message were redacted from the release of 896 emails totaling 296 pages, to protect information that may damage foreign relations.
The emails set for release, drawn from some 55,000 pages and focused on Libya, have already been turned over to the special House committee investigating the 2012 attacks on the United States outposts in Benghazi. The New York Times has obtained about a third of the 850 pages of emails.

These are picked from emails Mrs. Clinton printed out on paper.
Out of the millions of printed documents her staff decided what was important.
They proceeded to destroy the Server and then threw away thousands of emails.
Now, the State Department decides to release 300 ?
Really, 300 ? Several people should be getting arrested.
