Report on Navy Yard killings says Pentagon must focus more on defeating insider threats
A six-step plan for acquisition reform for the Defense Department.
Six months after 34-year-old IT contractor Aaron Alexis opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard killing 12 people, concerns about missed red flags in his background and gaps in the security clearance process are now turning into action. The Obama administration released the findings of a interagency review of the federal security clearance process Tuesday. Among the 13 recommendations for shoring up the system are continuously evaluating clearance holders rather than relying on infrequent check-ups and improving investigators' access to state and local police records.
Newly-released results of three parallel investigations into last September's Washington Navy Yard shootings point to serious gaps in the government's own security process. But the Navy's review finds the killings could have been prevented if the shooter's employer had disclosed troubling details about his recent behavior.
