Hillary Clinton’s Former Advisor considers Noam Chomsky’s Political Views as “Ridiculous” leaked Emails Reveal
A newly discovered Email in Hillary Clinton’s Email archive available on WikiLeaks  dating back to the 17th of May, 2010, shows that Sidney Blumenthal, former aide to President Bill Clinton and long-time confidant to Hillary Clinton, sent an Email to Hillary Clinton when she was serving in the State Department in regards to the barring of Noam Chomsky’s entry into Israel .
Sidney Blumenthal, although expressing contempt for Chomsky’s political views, urges the United States not to be a “passive onlooker” as he points out that this incident could be “profitable” if Israel would be made to understand that it cannot undertake such actions towards critics coming from the US or Europe. This suggests that Blumenthal was merely seeking a profitable opportunity for Hillary Clinton’s State Department instead of acting out of principle. It’s also indicative of the fact that Blumenthal’s concern extends only to critics coming from the United States and Europe since there is no mention of Palestine or other countries.
On May 17th, 2010, Blumenthal wrote to Hillary Clinton :
“His [Noam Chomsky] political views may be ridiculous or objectionable, though he is the
greatest linguistic scholar in the world, but barring him for his political opinions has created
a needless PR disaster, not least for the US, as he is, after all, a US citizen, and a very
prominent one internationally. It is unfortunate on every level. And the US should not be a passive
onlooker. He is a US citizen barred for his political views, after. This story is splashed
across the European press this morning. Not what anyone needs, yes, yes, like a hole in the head,
and bone stupid, but the US effort to gain entry should be part of the story. This incident can
be profitable if Israel understands it should not be doing this to US or European critics in the
future. This is a downward slope, bad news for everyone involved.” 
Our research tracked no active response from Hillary Clinton’s State Department towards this incident and her reply to Blumenthal’s Email was simply to ask for some copies related to this development:
“Pls print 3 copies.” 
Although this revelation shows only a brief exchange and is amongst the 30,322 Emails available on Wikileaks, it speaks volumes on Hillary’s Clintons lack of concern for freedom of expression in Israel as well Sidney Blumenthal’s opportunistic reaction towards this incident.
