Revoke my security clearance, too, Mr. President
The Washington Post ^ | 8/16/2018 | William H. McRaven

William H. McRaven, a retired Navy admiral, was commander of the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014. He oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who donít know him.

Why does anyone who’s no longer on the job keep their security clearance? What’s their need to know?

I see no reason not to expediently grant his wish, and to keep him under surveillance to be sure he’s not selling us out to our enemies in other ways as well.

Anyone who asks for their security clearance to be revoked should have it done immediately.

He, too, is reading/writing the script provided to him by his handlers, our domestic enemies.

That's pretty hilarious, given Brennan was caught red-handed lying about the CIA spying on Congress.

So the rest of this column can rightly be flushed like a dead goldfish.

One of the reasons the Waco fascists here STFU.

Imagine if a Seaman talk to the Admiral like this. The Seaman would lose much more than his security clearance!

What does this guy know of the plan suppress all photos of dead bin laden or the decision to give Osama a respectful US taxpayer funded Islamic funeral?

I have a lot of respect for mcraven but if he is going to be a drama queen, then yank it.

Shows he has no judgement.

The retention of security clearances by the various swamp denizens is merely additional proof of the existence of the swamp where they swim up from the swamp to infest the halls of government and later lay in waiting in the swamp consultancies for the next call to “serve.” It is this ebb and flow that keeps the slime in place so that scummy practices are allowed to exist, a la Page and Strzok.
