US Army names Hillary Clinton as ‘insider threat’ during OPSEC training

The United States Army has confirmed that Hillary Clinton was used as an example of an 'insider threat' to operational security (OPSEC) during a training class.

The photo of the former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate appeared on training slide titled: 'Who is the Threat?'.

A soldier at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri leaked a snap of the slide to a Facebook page called 'US Army WTF! Moments'.

The Clinton photo has since been removed from the slide.

The lineup included David Petraeus, Nidal Hassan, Aaron Alexis and whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning.

Army psychiatrist Nidal Hassan shot 13 people dead and injured 30 others during a mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas.  Former CIA director and four star general David Petraeus shared classified material with a mistress.

Earlier this year FBI Director James Comey said Clinton's handling of classified materials had been "extremely careless".

An Army 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."
