Submitted by Thomas Moore (United States), Jan 29, 2009 at 16:48

Barak does NOT have the highest security clearence and never will. The highest security clearances go far beond a Top Secert SCI Clearence. Most people don't even know the names of these clearances. In fact, most don't really have names. They are just reffered to by letters. For example an "M" clearence, "L' a "Q" clearence, etc... Presidents never have the highest clearence nor have access to everything that goes on with in our government. ... I have an TS SCI clearence, and I can tell you the practicing Isam DOES NOT prohibit you from getting a clearance. If fact, your are NEVER asked what religion you practice when trying to obtain a clearance. ...

What will preven you from getting a clerence, at least a high clearance is ANY type of criminal record, your credit history, where you were born, where your parents were born. "Communist Countries such as China, Cuba, North Korea, etc.. Make is near impossible to get cleared. Your work record. Then a private investigator will go around and make phone calls and house calls to people that you know. They will ask them a series of questions as well as run background checks on all them with out even telling them or needing their permission.
