Hey Kirt your "Smorgasbord" about the security clearance forgets
to mention that a background of drug use and hanging with people
advocating the overthrow of the US government might disqualify
for you for military service and working at a defense contracotr,
but at least you can still be a congressman, senator or even
PRESIDENT of the United States.
Bill Clinton never
obtained a full clearance, and neither did a lot of his staff.
It took Executive Privilige to allow a lot of his people to get
access to sensitive material including for Secretary of State
Halfbright. Hillary never could get one either.
that Barak Hussein Obama has personally hung with numerous
well-known seditious characters, and admits to cocaine use. That
won't stop him from being elected. In fact I predict that he
will win in November.
