While the media and talking heads were arguing over the security of Hillary Clinton’s private server before the election, the U.S. Army had already decided she was a security risk and treated her as such.

Conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch got a hold of the PowerPoint presentation used by the Department of Defense to train troops in how to stop operational security (OPSEC) threats:

Judicial Watch sued to get the documents after the group’s Freedom of Information Act request was slow-walked.

In a segment of the presentation featuring threats, Clinton was listed alongside General David Petraeus, who allowed his biographer and lover to see his classified calendar; thieves and spies, Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning; and Fort Hood terrorist, Dr. Nidal Hasan.

Clinton and Petraeus appear to be considered “careless” with secret documents, as opposed to “disgruntled employees” such as Snowden and Manning.

Judicial Watch says Clinton continually compromised her own security with her unencrypted, private server:

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.

Among others listed as security threats were these terrorists:

A page of the Army OPSEC presentation was leaked last year on the Facebook page “U.S. Army W.T.F! moments.”

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said he understands why the Pentagon didn’t want these documents out there:

“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."

Fitton told Independent Journal Review that the OPSEC presentation was “a dramatic illustration of national security [risks] by Mrs. Clinton’s email practices.“ Further, Fitton told IJR that ”FBI Director Comey’s political statement and the Obama AG’s political decision to ignore the plain law here should not be the final word."

He also said he hope the Justice Department takes the hint and investigates Clinton’s continual security breaches while she was secretary of state.
