Washington, DC USA –-(Ammoland.com)-  Judicial Watch today released a U.S. Department of the Army OpSec (Operational Security) PowerPoint presentation that depicts former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as an example of “insider threats.”

The PowerPoint presentation, produced as part of a lecture on cybersecurity, also includes General David Petraeus, terrorist Nidal Hassan, Bradley (Chelsea) Manning, Edward Snowden, and Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis.

The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response to a January 11, 2017, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia seeking the PowerPoint presentation on operational security delivered to soldiers at Fort Leonard Wood (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:17-cv-00060)). The lawsuit, which is now settled, had been filed after the Department of Defense failed to respond to an August 22, 2016, FOIA request.

The PowerPoint presentation warns against “Critical Information Compromises” involving material such as the “itineraries of … senior executive service (SES)” and “very important persons (VIPs),” any of which can result in “Attack, Kidnapping, Publicity.” It also cites “unsecure email” as an error that can lead to an enemy being able to “Kill, Counter, Clone.”

Judicial Watch’s investigations into Clinton’s email practices while secretary of state repeatedly produced examples of Clinton aide Huma Abedin sharing the schedule and travel plans of Clinton on an unsecure email system.

The operational security brief was reportedly leaked, and then posted on the Facebook page “U.S. Army W.T.F! moments.” Administrators of the Facebook page said a picture came from a service member stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.

Clinton and Petraeus are cited as examples of “Careless or disgruntled employees.” Former Secretary Clinton conducted official government business using a non-state.gov email account, which was hosted on a server in her home in Chappaqua, New York. Judicial Watch’s extensive FOIA litigation pried loose Clinton email records, which proved she sent and received classified information on an unsecure server while serving as secretary of state.

Gen. Petraeus is a retired four-star general and the former director of the CIA who pled guilty in federal court to a charge of unauthorized removal of classified information. At the time, Petraeus was having an affair with his biographer to whom he provided classified information while serving as Director of the CIA.

“No wonder it took a lawsuit to extract this damning Pentagon analysis which recognizes former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as an “Inside Threat” to national security,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “I hope the Department of Justice takes note and proceeds with an appropriate investigation.”

Rep. Chavis of Utah was gun-ho on getting to the bottom of this Hillary thing. He has seemed to have dropped it and is going after Trump and Russia now. Did Clinton get too hot for him to handle? Judicial Watch keeps after these things but congress drops it, I think their attention span is short. We pay these congress people big money to do a job but rarely get our money’s worth.

The truth always comes out!!!. HRC is a trader to her Country and to the people of the great County. And Gen. Petraeus I served under him in OIF/OEF he was a great leader but like all men we have our weaknesses and like all men women are that weakness.
