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 spokesperson from the Army's Training and Doctrine Command said the slide was developed 18 months ago.
.
"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," the spokesperson said in a statement.
.
"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."
.
A U.S. military official told NBC News that the slide with a header reading "Who is the threat? Insiders" was used at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.
.
Clinton's camp did not respond to NBC News requests for comment on the slide.
.
The mention of Clinton is an apparent reference to her use of a personal email server during her time at the State Department, including the handling of secret documents. FBI Director James Comey earlier this year described her workflow as "extremely careless."
.
Next to Clinton on the slide is a photograph of former CIA Director and retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, who pleaded guilty in 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified materials by sharing them with his former mistress and biographer.

Looks like some in our Army knew way back then that Hillary Clinton as a threat. America already knows this.
