Brig. Gen. H. R. McMaster, who banned PowerPoint presentations when he was a Colonel serving in Iraq likened PowerPoint to an internal threat.
“It’s dangerous because it can create the illusion of understanding and the illusion of control,” General McMaster said in a telephone interview afterward. “Some problems in the world are not bullet-izable.”
Here is the infamous Pentagon PowerPoint slide that prompted a general to say: “If we can understand that slide, we will have won the war.”
I sure hope the high ranking idiot who came up with this slide is now a Private First Class.
