This is beyond ridiculous.

Alexis had previously worked for The Experts in Japan from September 2012 to January 2013, he said.

"We had just recently re-hired him. Another background investigation was re-run and cleared through the defense security service in July 2013," Hoshko said.

Hoshko said he believed that Alexis' "secret" security clearance dated back to 2007.

The Navy said Alexis enlisted as a full-time Navy reservist in May 2007. He was discharged in 2011 after a series of misconduct issues, a Navy official said.

that's the job of the NSA. At least when they checked on me in the 1960's.

People should lighten up on the NSA. They're too busy checking our emails and phone records to worry about national security anymore.

I pegged this guy as a DOD contractor the moment I saw his traveling and background in the military. Aviation Electronics is in high demand and there is a company in the Dallas area that heavily recruits these guys. My best friend works there and is constantly traveling on projects for weeks or months working TS projects.

Im surprised this guy has a facebook or any social media. That can get you fired instantly and it’s not uncommon to see people pulled right off of a job for it.

The TS process is no joke. The State Dept shows up in my life from time to time with their questions. It’s not a bad process just wierd to some of my neighbors. Having a negligent discharge of a weapon is not grounds to prevent a TS. Crimes or moral turpitude like theft are.

Im going to call my friend tonight and ask if he knew or worked with this guy.

Boy, this one is kinda of a puzzler.
Aaron Alexis has two or three run-ins with the law over fire arm violations. He was given discharged from the navy for “misconduct”. He claimed to suffer from PTSD.
BUT he was STILL given a secret clearance and a CAC to the naval yard.
He was a Buddhist. A Buddhist? I sure would like to see how many Buddhist have been involved in shooting over the past 10-20 year. Or any types of murders for that matter. It is like an itch I can't reach.

I doubt it. Dishonorables are what someone like Bradley Manning get after a court martial. Almost certainly he received a General (Under Honorable Conditions) which they give to misfits, deadwood, undesirables, personality problems, minor civilian trouble and etc.

Despite the circumstances surrounding his discharge, Alexis apparently was issued a government contractor access card that would have allowed him into the Navy Yard and other military installations, said Thomas Hoshko, chief executive of the Experts. Alexis’s security clearance was updated in July and he was scheduled to begin work at the Navy Yard this month.

“There had to be a thorough investigation,” Hoshko said. “There is nothing that came up in all the searches.”

This has to be Pure BS or some heads need to roll in the Pentagon and Cabinet. Used to be for a Secret Clearence they dug deep I mean real deep. I had FBI at my door one day asking about my Buddy who was in the process of becoming a Bubblehead in the Navy.

IF the media reports on the mans history are true he had no business with a clearence or even being on a military base period.

The granting of 0bama TS/SCI clearances moved the bar so low that there is no bar anymore. In the REAL world, 0bama wouldn’t be eligible for even a ‘Confidential’ clearance.

Oh I'm sure there are plenty of people asking. But, it has been suggested that his Buddhist. It does seem strange to me that a Buddhist would go around killing people. Simple research on the web confirms that under one of the basic tenets of that religion, your not supposed to kill. There is also a bad on the use of alcohol, but one of the pictures that I have seen posted shows him holding a bottle of Heineken.

We will probably never know what was in the mind of this evil guy. But, you can rest assured that over the next few weeks, the press will split hairs over the smallest details, all the while ignoring the giant mouse in the room. This is just one more event that will be used as cover for the Muslim-in-chief in the White House. It is just something more that they can use to cover all of his corruption and purposeful destruction of America!

The question should be who was contracted to do the “clearance” for the perp it seems. USIS supposedly vetted Snowden for Booz Allen. Altegrity, Inc. owns USIS.

Whatever it is they're doing, only the most ignorant fools or brainwashed partisans suffer the illusion that the NSA are "keeping us safe." Even with all their unprecedented violations of our civil rights, they never had a clue about the Boston bombers.
