Army Training Presentation Uses Hillary Clinton As An Example Of 'Insider Threat Risk'

Apparently the Army decided that Hillary Clinton is a risk...18 months ago.
Army Training Presentation Uses Hillary Clinton As An Example Of 'Insider Threat Risk'

Wow, talk about a poorly delivered and extremely biased training presentation. The Army had to backtrack hard after a slide was released that had been used in a training lesson on how to secure classified materials and improve safety.

NBC reports that one of the slides features a "who's who" of leakers and national threats, including General Petreaus, NSA leaker Edward Snowden, Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan and Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis.

Yes, they put Hillary Clinton on the same level as someone who leaked national secrets and two murderers.

An Army's Training and Doctrine Command spokesperson said the slide was created 18 months ago, before Hillary Clinton was cleared of all accusations of lying and intentional misuse of her home server.

The spokesperson said "as is common with Army training requirements, the local unit was given latitude to develop their own training products to accomplish the overall training objective. This particular presentation had not been reviewed or approved by the unit's leadership, and does not reflect the position of the Army. The training presentation has since been removed."

Uh huh. Doesn't reflect the Army and we didn't approve or review it.

Popular Military reports that Major Thomas Campbell said in a statement that officials had “addressed the issue with our personnel" and that the slide had been removed.

How will they feel when she is Commander in Chief in, oh, 5 months?
