State Department has hired agents with criminal records, memo reveals
NY Post ^ | 6/13/2013 | S.A. MILLER and GEOFF EARLE

WASHINGTON — The State Department has hired an alarming number of law-enforcement agents with criminal or checkered backgrounds because of a flawed hiring process, a stunning memo obtained by The Post reveals.

The background problems are severe enough that many of the roughly 2,000 agents in State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security can play only limited roles in agency efforts to police bad conduct and prosecute wrongdoers.

...

“Department intakes of new . . . officers since the hiring surge a decade ago have reportedly been flawed, with ‘mitigation’ of troubling histories including criminal matters,” according to a December 2012 memo to State Deputy Inspector General Harold Geisel from a team leader in the IG’s Office.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. IMHO, the Obama administration is recruiting people who they think will be loyal to Obama, and giving them guns, even if (or especially if) they are criminal thugs.

I suppose everyone is “surprised” at how well the criminals fit right in.

It’s okay to hire criminals, because then you can get a representative sample of Americans including Blacks.

Perhaps there were Americans to be taken out by the
State Dept.

the Ambassador?

Whistleblowers?

Patsies?

Congressmen who disagreed?

De rigeur. Marxists hire the oppressed proletariat and empower them to take out the bourgeoisie.

That's just my thought, that the Administration is recruiting thugs for the express purpose of turning them loose on people who oppose the takeover by the Chicago Machine. Case in point: State Department Whistleblower, a Career Foreign Service Officer, Seeks Congressional Protection After State Threatens Her Kids

Bill Clinton basically did away with background checks and security investigations for clearances, for a lot of positions,since so many people he appointed or hired could never have passed one

Including himself.

Back then it was was mostly about covering up drug use, now it is about all kinds of abysmal peverted behaviors and corruption

It is Bush’s shame that he kept so many of these slugs in their govt jobs and positions - and caveled to the democrats- just being such a get-along go along gentleman with the democrats and all that crap, as if it made them like and respect him, like when he gave Nancy Pelosi a big hug and the keys to her BIG personal govt airplane

Many faceless underlings in our govt - and their overlods like Pelsoi and Reid- spent 8 years eating the underbelly of our government, in rage and spite at Bush being in office

as far as security investigations of obama and his legion of appointees- fergetaboutit.

I imagine Valerie Jarrett runs all that now, except they did turn over the State Department to the ambitious but perennially incompetent Hillary Rodham.

Bill’s peeps must not be taking care of Hillary, or she doesn’t trust them to do so and has her own legion of loyal largely metrosexual incompetents

background checks and security investigations for clearances

you are correct that if checks were being done ... traffic would fall by fifty percent.

This could not be an accident. Minimum hiring practices is a National Agency Check which would kick out any prior criminal felony convictions and most misdomeanor ones too.

If that person lied on their application, that would be a prima facia violation of one more too.

Someone had to make a determination to look past those crimes either by volution or by direction.

Our government has gone round the bend.

because of a flawed hiring process

Ha! Mistakes were made!

The first thing the Communists, the hired thugs of Globalist Banksters, did when they took over a country was to empty the prisons and put the cons on the payroll. Stalin himself was a bank robbing brigand before the October Revolution

Excellent points, that this began under Clinton and that Bush passively perpetuated it. Obama’s murky background is really a continuation of Clinton’s couldn’t get a security clearance situation. Creepy and frightening.

Statement: "State Department has hired agents with criminal records, memo reveals"

Response: Of course.

Comment: Of course this administration would add felons to its coalition of blacks, Asians, Mexicans, Sodomites and brainwashed white youth. I hope that posters to this site have at least been following the media articles advocating enfranchising felons. I can't wait until a man convicted of embezzlement is made a treasurer; a child molester head of social services etc.

“I suppose everyone is “surprised” at how well the criminals fit right in.”

I’m not surprised they’d find ways to fit in and I’ll bet that because they know their jobs may be at stake, they tend to be more reliable since they can’t afford even one slip-up (one might think and rightly so).

It’s the ones who don’t become criminals until they start working for the government who are the most dangerous and difficult to identify, especially when they’ve been assigned to positions of power in “Human Resources”.

And yet the BMW plant in South Carolina isn’t allowed to do criminal background checks on applicants.

The number of cabinet employees who are felons, not yet convicted, is the number that will amaze you!

Another thread covers BMW being hassled because criminal checks filter out a disproportionate number of people from "protected classes".

“..because of a flawed hiring practice”??? If that’s the case, why is 0bama’s EEOC suing companies for failing to hire ex-felons? It appears the ‘flaw’ is 0bama himself.

smuggling

abandoning Ambassadors in the field

intending them as hostage trade fodder

covering up child prostitution

threatening kids of DOS whistle-blowers

hiring criminals

Wow, sounds like....ARKANSAS.

And here is a rumor: the SEALs who waxed OBL and tossed his pad found a document in OBL’s writing indicating that some AQ attacks on US forces had been arranged by HILLARY.

And that document is still in some kind of West Point database.

We are subjected openly to outrage after outrage after outrage, and the lid is still on the pot, but there will be a final outrage that pops that lid off eventually.
