Now wait just a dog-gone minute! The NSA knows when I let a fart, and you mean to tell me that they didn’t let Obama’s administration know the poop on this guy? A top secret compartmented security clearance? You gotta be $hittin’ me!
“The NSA knows when I let a fart, and you mean to tell me that they didnt let Obamas administration know the poop on this guy?”
I’d imagine it works like this: You’re an NSA analyst. Your boss tells you to run a report on ImNotLying. You run the report and flag everything that you’re told to flag. For example, ImNot is trying to get a higher security clearance. Then, a visit to China would be flagged, but not if it was reported and cleared. You probably have no visibility into whether it was reported or cleared as that would have been done, most likely, with an FBI agent assigned to whatever group granted the clearance. (Or, that’s how it worked in my day.)
But, most likely, the NSA was never consulted. Clearances are run by different groups depending on what they’re for.
You can’t blame the oracle if you never asked the oracle the question. And, you have to ask the oracle the right question.
It’s my impression that the administration, like all the academics I’ve met, treat security as a toothless redneck trying to bum a beer off you.
Tommy Vietor, Obamba's van driver, got national
security clearance, and attended WH Situation Room
Hillary hired Tommy van driver/dude to help roll out her book. Dude Vietor is Hillary's top pick for Secretary of State.
