As far as dual citizenship goes. The ethnic Chinese folks I was referring to were not dual citizens they were US. Unless things have changed one cannot be a dual cit and have a TS

from
True Deceiver: How a Castro Spy Wrote the Pentagon's Playbook on Cuba.
American Enterprise Institute. http://www.aei.org/events/filter.for...transcript.asp
Wednesday, May 16, 2007
Presenter: Scott Carmichael, Defense Intelligence Agency

"...At any rate, that's not what he is here to do. I will note
parenthetically that the proceeds from his book will go to the family of Greg Fronius, who was a Special Operations officer killed in El Salvador within weeks of Ana Montes visiting the camp where he was working...The last chapter in the book is entitled Death of War Fighter. It's about Special Forces Sergeant Gregory Fronius, who died twenty years ago at an armed forces camp in El Salvador. A couple weeks before that camp was overrun by Cuban-backed insurgents, Ana visited the camp
on official business. Her job was to assess the military capability
of El Salvador armed forces. Those were the guys Greg was training. She returned to Washington. Back in those days, she was meeting with the Cubans quite often and sharing with them everything that she had learned. Within a couple weeks, that camp was completely overrun in a devastating attach. I believe that the total number of El Salvadoran armed forces soldiers that were killed exceeded 250. The insurgents lost eight. If any of you have a military background, you can appreciate how devastating that attack must have been. Even at the
time, we assumed that they had inside information to penetrate that camp, which had been built by the United States Army Special Forces. We don't know if Ana provided actionable intelligence to the Cubans that enabled them to penetrate that camp and kill one of our Special Forces guys. We don't know that. We can't point the finger at her and say she is wholly responsible for this. My view is that Ana stood on the wrong side of the fence during that attack. She was a fully recruited Cuban agent at the time. She was responsible for supporting that Green Beret and not opposing him. It's for that reason that I've donated the author's royalties from the sale of the book to his children..."

I hope everyone shares my belief that there is nothing more fulfilling than arguing over minor bureaucratic guidelines regarding security administivia on an open forum.

Because that is what I believe.

The grease that lubricates the wheels of the federal government; very similar to the FAR.

I had to deal with a string of emails this week debating if books purchased with a GPC should be on an equipment IQP or a supplies IQP.

Well, let's argue about it ONLY on SIPR...

That way the public will never know, get outraged, or demand change...
