In all of the uproar over whether or not our President will revoke the security clearances afforded former top-level intelligence experts, it seems the word that’s been lost in all of the debate is that word “former”.
I’ve never had the misfortune of being forced from a job.
However, I do know a number of people who have been shown the door by their employer over the years.
I’m pretty sure none of them were allowed to keep access to the building where they’d worked, let alone access to any of the company’s computer systems or pertinent documents.
How it is that any former official of the government that’s supposed to work for us is allowed to keep access to top-secret information that’s off limits to the rest of us who foot the bill is, to say the least, incomprehensible to me.
I won’t get into another of the words used to describe the 6 former government intelligence officials who may soon find secret information off limits to them.
That word is “intelligence”.
Pardon me, but there doesn’t seem to be an overabundance of intelligence at work anywhere in Washington DC these days.
That’s the way I see it.
