Man a friend of mine got in some trouble when he was getting his top secret clearence. He put down one someone he knew from work for the background check interviews. Well this guy was f'n moron who didn't take the man in a suit driving up in the black caddy, flashing his FBI badge, seriously. So on ALL THE QUESTIONS, like "have you seen him with any diplomats?...did he take any money from them?...has he been out of the country?....etc,etc"

My friend could kill that dumbass. Atleast my family knew my friend and the FBI agent took their testimonies as well as mine, so he didn't take the one jerk's crap seriously.
