I assume this guy had some level of security clearance - how did all this nonsense escape notice? Maybe it ties to something my DS told me recently. According to him, there was such a backlog of security clearance investigations, a wand was waved and clearances were given/ renewed without the proper investigation. The decision was made to clear the deck and start fresh - particularly on low level clearances. Not sure if DS has this correct. I was wondering if anyone in the know could comment.
