FBI Director James Comey meant it when he said that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server was an extremely careless move.
It seems that the United States Army agrees and they use her as an example of people not to necessarily trust with classified information.
NBC News reported:
“An Army training presentation on insider threats included Hillary Clinton among a rogue’s gallery of killers and leakers, citing the former secretary of state as an example of “careless or disgruntled employees,” NBC News confirmed on Tuesday.
The unclassified slide, which first emerged on a Facebook page that spoofs the military, was confirmed by a U.S. military officials, who said it was used as part of a lesson on how to secure classified materials and improve safety.
A U.S. military official told NBC News that the slide — with a header reading “Who is the threat? Insiders” — was used at at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.”
Take a look at the Facebook post below:
A spokesperson from the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command released a statement:
“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,” the statement read according to NBC News.
The slide listed Clinton among others, such as retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, who plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information in 2012; Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009 (which President Obama classified as “workplace violence”); Chelsea (Bradley) Manning and Edward Snowden, who leaked confidential information; and Aaron Alexis, who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013.
It’s too bad the Army felt they needed to remove the presentation as it seems like a valuable learning tool. Clinton should be held up in the history books for derision as an example of how not to conduct oneself for a wide variety of reasons.
Then again, it might not be a good example, because unlike Clinton, anyone else who does what she did would be punished….as U.S. Navy Officer Kristian Saucier found out the hard way. Clinton gets to run for president while Saucier spends a year in prison for nearly the same thing.
