Should intelligence agencies monitor employees with security clearances political views?
That shouldn't matter.
Yes, find out if the mad bombers, throat slitters, and other assorted militant fanatics and supporters have access to our secrets.
Yes. If an intelligence employee is pleasing isis, for example, they should be at least monitored closely.
We aren't communists. You want that shit, move to Russia. We're Americans, start acting like it.
Yes. Private Industry does it all of the time to thwart corporate espionage. It is very fortunate that WWII was managed by Democrats far superior to the idiots who only know how to "resist", as they feather their own nests!
At times little bit, now a lot.
Yes. We need to remove communists from sensitive positions.
Liberals, anarchists nut cases and criminals also.
No, the political views of intelligence agents and contractors are irrelevant
Yup, that's what Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg said!
The problem wasn't what the Rosenberg's believe, it is what they stole
Their social media should be reviewed during the vetting process for their security clearance.
For what? So people that hold or post politically incorrect views on the current party in power or the POTUS on social media can be ferreted out? Politically incorrect to who? Republicans? Democrats? The current President? You? Me? The MSM? The Alt-Right? Evangelicals? Feminists?
That would lead us to every four to eight years replacing every person in the CIA, FBI, NSA, NRO, DIA, and the rest of the IC. We'd need to hire a huge number of political commissars to keep watch on everyone with a security clearance to make sure everybody stayed in line with the (current) party line.
Sorry, that's not the way this country works. Russia and China sure, but we're Americans. We need to start acting
like Americans and not politically correct snowflakes that tremble in fear when when someone says something we disagree with.
If someone wants a Top Security Clearance, then they need to be thoroughly investigated. Period.
From a government website.
"What is the purpose of a security clearance?
The purpose of a security clearance is to determine that a person is able and willing to safeguard classified national security information, based on his or her loyalty, character, trustworthiness, and reliability."
Absolutely not, agencies are created to be non partisan. Getting intelligence agencies into politics is a disaster.
Someone should have mentioned that to Obama.
The people that pissed and moaned about Obama politicizing the IC want to do the same now. The hypocrisy is galling.
Should a NSA contractors social media be watched?
All private gov contractors political affiliations should be monitored , included Eric Prince, if you y'all don't know Eric prince is he's Betsy Devoss brother and founder of black water... he moved to sharia Arabia and was in the trump camp while he visited there.
Oh by the way, Hi Goldberg ✌🏻 and fu
Yep, Prince is a big actor in the military-industrial complex. I didn't realize DeVos was his sister until a few months quo.
Yea well prince didn't seemed destined to try and destroy the president like Reality Winner was clearly from her social media. Should not have been given access. I knew you couldn't resist to comment
