The piece focuses on Glenn “Snowden Facilitator” Greenwald. Greenwald and his sycophants are now railing about a Time Magazine piece that pictured Edward Snowden, (Chelsea) Manning, Aaron Alexis, and Fort Hood shooter Hassan in the same article. Frankly, even without reading the Time piece, I assume the article relates to background checks. Snowden and Manning’s spying do not compare to the taking of lives such as Alexis and Hassan. Nonetheless, Greenwald’s Twitter page is full of hyper-liberal and anti-US Greenwald followers.
USIS, the Falls Church government contractor that handled the background check for National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, said Thursday that it also vetted Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis for his secret-level clearance in 2007.
The company, which is under criminal investigation over whether it misled the government about the thoroughness of its background checks, said earlier this week that it had not handled Alexis’s case.
USIS spokesman Ray Howell said the company got new information Thursday.
“Today we were informed that in 2007, USIS conducted a background check of Aaron Alexis” for the Office of Personnel Management, Howell said in a statement. “We are contractually prohibited from retaining case information gathered as part of the background checks we conduct for OPM and therefore are unable to comment further on the nature or scope of this or any other background check.”
In the strange mind of Glenn Greenwald, the vetting of Edward Snowden was not a “clearance failure” at all; in fact, hiring Snowden for the NSA was one of the only good things Booz Allen ever did.
Wow, what an amazingly twisted concept of national security this guy has.

How could so many completely forget the San Francisco AT&T/FBI Room 641A reports (I, II, III, IV) of 2006. Have we grown so far away from 2006 (and 9/11) we have actually (and typically) American washed it out of our minds?
