My old clearance, TOP SECRET-SIOP/ESI also seemed to be missing from the list. Maybe they've changed over the years.

SIOP / ESI stands for "Single Integrated Operation Plan / Exceptionally Sensitive Information".

In other word, pre-canned war plans.

Nice list, if a bit basic.
It can go really deep, and several pages long if you go into subsets, nested subsets, and "special circumstances".
It's no wonder the agencies can't find their ***** with both hands when you get into the complexity of security clearances---agency-department-project-project department-project departmentalisation subset working groups-etc ad infatum.
Not to mention supervisory compartments needing specific communication authorisation within,around and through, and "special curcumstances" where one needs a one off bit from another subset of working group.

I'll bet the authorisation for some bits of a supposed reverse engineering program from 1945 are just being delivered to the requesters 25 years after they died.

Are any of these clearances China proof?

I'm hoping most are but something tells me this may not be the case.

What does China proof mean? There is no chance in hell that anyone can hack into the Secret or Top Secret networks that the military uses. You do realize that there are 2 totally independent networks used to transmit strictly classified information? They are pretty much impossible to get into unless they want you to be there.....trust me. it took me about 3 months to get all set up, and Im supposed to be on it.

Yes. There is things out there that are "limited" to as few people as possible. There are things out there so secret that no one can know about them.

Mr. M


of no one can know about them they may as well do not even exist, why bother? lol

Having held most all of the same clearance you have cited, While I am not sure exactly WHAT you do, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that I can identify alot of areas that you are indoctrinated into.

Top secret esi siop means you were probably in the military and were given access to military targeting information probably at a missile silo or on a Fleet Balistic Missile (ICBM) submarine. esi = extra sensitive information siop = single integrated operations (war plans)...

Hmmm... I am currently in the AF. And some of these classifications I have yet to hear of.

The ones I know for sure are as follows
FOUO- For Official Use Only (DoD standards, no longer needs to be labeled)

UNCLASSIFIED-Anyone can see, but by protocol should really have the need to know.

CONFIDENTIAL- Needs to have a need to know, but wont harm/jeopardize the US

SECRET-Case sensitive, must have the need to know, will cause severe damage to the US

Then there are SUB categories within SECRET:

SECRET//NOFORN-Not released to any country
SECRET//REL to .....-Released to the given country
SECRET//ROKUS-Released to the Rebublic of Korea. (South korea)

TOPSECRET It speaks for itself...

And as for this COMSEC.... Its Communications Security
Then there is OPSEC...Operations Security
COMPSEC...Computer Security

You said they are inhackable but if these people can do it why couldn't someone with enough network experience and basic knowledge of these Military networks hack them

Will bad credit automatically disqualify you from an TS SSBI? I had a TS in 2003 but my new employer wants me to get a TS SBBI but my credit is not good.

There have been several comments concerning SIOP-ESI. The only one to get it right has been mbkennel. It is a TS extender and stands for Single Integrated Operations Plan-Extremely Sensitive Information. The SIOP is/was a part of the EWO (Emergency War Order) and does concern nuclear war plans. I carried this clearance while assigned to 8th Air Force, 43rd Strategic Wing. We had access to the DGZ (Desired Ground Zero) List and conducted revisions to the SIOP. We were also members of the Air Force HRP (Human Reliability Program). When separated from the service we were subject to a 5 to 7 year Duty and Travel Restriction. Hope this clears the air.

I have an interesting question to pose... So, our commander in chief would obviously have a top secret clearance, but does his need to know extend to all classified information? Would anyone with direct control of any classified material be able to restrict the president's access based on his "need to know"?

The reason I ask this is that I've always wondered if the president could jump in Air Force One, fly to Groom Lake and say, "Show me every room in this facility and open every file cabinet". Can anyone say no to him based on "need to know"?

I'm sure there are tons of black world projects that the president has absolutely no direct knowledge of.
