So after decades of working in the oil field he suddenly needs government security clearance? Why? It's crazy and I wouldn't like it either. I think
he is right to be cautious and questioning why this is.
What don't you get about this? He fills out the stuff or he gets terminated. Period. End of story. You've already been told why. Why do you have to
ask the same question again? Why do you think you are going to get some sort of answer satisfactory to you here on ATS? Do you read the news? What
happens in Iraq and Libya quite frequently? Bad Guys (tm) blow up oil fields. They think it "hurts" the Guys in Power (tm), which it does. It also
hurts the citizens of that country who may have to go without jobs, electricity, or what have you because of this sabotage.
Now, the DHS bureaucrats are quite inept and invasive. We know that already. And they have decided to "tighten up" oil field security. Why? Do we have
to answer this again? Because maybe they have received threats. Maybe they have information that a "sleeper cell" is in place ready to strike. Maybe
they think the Right Wing Extremists might copy their ISIS brothers' tactics. You DO remember Tim McVeigh, don't you?
So listen to the answer. If you don't like the answer, that's one thing, but to claim you still don;t understand "why" is disingenuous. You know very
well why. So stop insulting everyone's intelligence by asking it over and over.
