On Monday, the State Department released the final installment of 1,723 emails Hillary Clinton had stored on a private server while she was secretary of state. Of the 30,068 emails released over the past several months, under court order, the State Department has retroactively classified 65 as "secret," the second-highest level of security, and one as "top secret." At the CIA's demand, 22 emails won't be released. Another 2,028 have portions blacked out.
Among the final batch of emails was a forward to Clinton regarding a North Korea missile test that a U.S. spy agency had wanted classified "top secret." That "original assessment was not correct, and the document does not contain top secret information," said State Department spokesman John Kirby. In another email, dated Dec. 29, 2011, Clinton actually made a decent Star Wars joke:

If that was a prescient bid for the nerd vote, well-played, Secretary Clinton. Peter Weber
