fwdude~: “It is the belief of the Defense Security Service that signing the petition is a reportable event.”
I believe that Defense Security Service is part of the Dept. of Defense ( DOD) and are federal sworn agents , but not law enforcement officers. They do personal background checks , and look for industrial espionage ,especially with companies doing federal business with the Dept. of Defense (DOD).
Since I am unfamiliar with Defense Security Service , I went to Wiki for some understanding of their role and duties.
However , since the issuance of several Executive Orders in the last few months , I wonder if their role and duties have changed (?).
The Defense Security Service only asks the question as to whether you have ever plotted the VIOLENT overthrow of the U.S. Government.
If you have plotted the non-violent overthrow, i.e., by peaceful political means (kind of like the current administration), that is permitted.
