On Wednesday, August 23, 2016 the U.S. Army pulled Hillary Clinton’s image off of a power point presentation slide using her as an example of “insider security threats” after the information went viral on Twitter. Obviously, someone agrees that Mrs. Clinton is a security threat due to her many hacked emails and loosely sending and receiving classified and important emails and storing them on her own private server instead of following protocol and using her US State Department email. So what does this say about how the US Army feels about someone who is currently the Democratic nominee for President of the United States? Even though the spokesperson for the Army denies any connection, it is clear that someone thinks so.
One could easily perceive by the slide that Hillary would fall under the second line of the slide listed under, “Careless or disgruntled employees.” FBI director James Comey stated back in July of this year when he revealed the results of their lengthy investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal that she was indeed, “extremely careless.”
You can clearly see the U.S. Army logo in the upper right corner of the slide and 5 other examples of Insider Threats. The other examples are Nidel Hasan, (Ft. Hood shooter), Bradley Manning (whistle-blower), Edward Snowden (whistle-blower of NSA spying), Aaron Alexis (Washington Navy yard shooter), and David Petraeus (provided classified documents to his mistress).
This image was being used for the past 18 months at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and was just recently pulled out of circulation. I first became aware of the image on Monday through a Tweet from Infowars.com reporter Joe Biggs (@rambobiggs) and Eric Bohlen (@abnheel) The image came to the attention of Major Thomas Campbell, a spokesman for TRADOC also on Monday.
Major Campbell explained, “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 on the Army.”
No specific information was given as to how many soldiers had gone through this particular training over the last 18 months and viewed the slide, or to which individual created the slide and gave the presentation.
