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 States 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 IGs Office.

I suppose everyone is “surprised” at how well the criminals fit right in.
Not all of them are just learning through On-The-Job-Training.
Thaey are actually bringing in some professionals.
It’s okay to hire criminals, because then you can get a representative sample of Americans including Blacks.

The SA was useful up to a point too.
Perhaps there were Americans to be taken out by the
Congressmen who disagreed?
ping to keepers of lists
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
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
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.
Thank You ping.
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
Pin it on HIllary. This was her State Dept
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.
As was Castro. Excellent point.
I’m betting most of them are of the Affirmative Action persuasion....
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”.
...apparently, the same hiring process used by the city of DC during the Marion Barry days.
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".
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
hillary - “What difference does it make???”
Just another minor, unimportant ‘kerfuffle.’
“..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.
Our ever vigilant media will be on this story anytime, now. Just wait and see. sarc/
abandoning Ambassadors in the field
intending them as hostage trade fodder
covering up child prostitution
threatening kids of DOS whistle-blowers
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.
Thanks PapaBear3625. Birds of a feather...
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.
Takes one to know one.
