Army Pulls Training Slide Listing Hillary Clinton as Example of ‘Insider’ Threat

By Dylan Stableford | 24 August 2016

YAHOO — The U.S. Army has pulled a slide from a training presentation that described Hillary Clinton as an “insider” threat to national security.

The slide, which was used in a PowerPoint presentation at Missouri’s Fort Leonard Wood, included the image of the Democratic nominee alongside pictures of disgraced retired Gen. David Petraeus, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan and Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis and described them as “insiders” who were “careless or disgruntled” government employees.

An image of the slide, which had been used in local training presentations at the outpost since early 2015, was posted to Facebook on Sunday.

According to Maj. Thomas Campbell, a U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command spokesman, the slide has since been removed from the presentation.

“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,” Campbell said in a statement to the Army Times. “This particular presentation had not been reviewed or approved by the unit’s leadership and does not reflect the position of the Army.” []
