A secret clearance with a general discharge. I would not have guessed that to be possible.
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.
Who did Hewlett Packard’s work?
If you’re super good at what you do, they will overlook your past and take you anyways.
Kind of like young geeks that steal and hack into classified stuff and go to prison. They get recruited.
I wonder why only a general discharge with his record. Apparently the navy didn’t want to be considered racist.
