I served in the Navy for five years and couldn't get a clearance.

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by Ian (United States), Oct 26, 2008 at 18:31

Well apparently if you serve in the US Navy for five years never getting into any trouble and excelling in your job you still can't get a security clearance from the US Government why do you ask? Because it happened to me as I married a non US citizen. So when I was trying to transfer to the rate of Crypto Linguist as an Arabic translator my package was shot down before it ever got off the ground, because of my non US citizen wife.

So what is this where someone who has never served a day in his life ( and we know why) has all these shady ties, and is very dishonest can become the president of the United States and a honest hard working enlisted sailor that has worked his ass off for the Navy for five years sweating in the boiler room of a ship. Well that's one reason I got out. I'm sure if my name was Barack Obama though I would have gotten a free pass. I can verify this story and I plan on spreading it. Let me know if you wan't to help.
