Obama couldn't get clearance to guard latrines...

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by mekannyk (United States), Oct 26, 2008 at 03:53

I was a Russian linguist and intelligence analyst during the 80's, and was stationed in West Berlin for several years while it was still occupied by the Soviets in the east.

I am sure that eventually the truth will be uncovered regarding Senator Obama's real name and nationality. For me, this is beside the point at this time. I could never vote for anyone who does not qualify for a Top Secret SCI (codeword) security clearance. I could list at least a dozen reasons off the top of my head why Mr. Obama would NEVER qualify for such a clearance.

The last president we had that fit this scenario was Bill Clinton. Prior to being elected Commander-in-Chief, he could not have gotten a clearance to guard our latrine, let alone have access to classified information. What we got during the 90's was a president who literally gave nuclear weapons to North Korea, and 21st century missile guidance technology (most NASA, amd many Department of Defense satellites were launched from China at this time!) to the Communist Chinese. The day one of these nations use a nuclear weapon, the blood of every victom killed will be on the hands of Bill Clinton.

I am absolutely mortified that Barrack Hussein Obama (aka Barry Soetoro) is on the cusp of becoming the most powerful man in the world. I wholeheartedly agree with Michael S. (hang in there good doctor, always remember and be comforted when you are down and tired, that you are doing God's work.) that all candidates running for state or federal office should have to be held to a higher standard than those written into our constitution over 230 years ago. To include the same requirements any private/seaman/airman in the military must meet - FBI background checks, necessary security clearances, and mandatory drug testing at the very least. Senator Obama would NEVER qualify to hold public office if this were the case. Yet, 50% of America seems ready to hand over the keys to the White House to this Kenyan/Indonesian/Muslim? man who will not release his original birth certificate or even supply his previous addresses. I sincerely fear the damage this man will do to our national security.
