Currently I am in King Of Prussia, PA. Which is 25 min drive from where I live. They want me to relocate to Maryland(head quarters) but I don't know if I want too.

Yankee white is a high clearance and so is fire. There are clearances that are themselves classified, and nuke clearances are not made public, only a selected number of people know what they are. I don't know what Yankee white is nor have I ever meet anyone that had this. Don't forget, clearance names change frequently.

Yankee White is not a clearance, it's a type of background check...like SSBI. White House photographers, secret service, pretty much everyone that works with the president on a regular basis all have a "Yankee White".

Thank you for that info and link Sporty. THe reason I probably couldnt find what it was is because I was looking for a clearane and its a backround check.

Security clearance don't really MEAN anything. As an example, while in the Navy, I was given a Top Secrect clearance. Why? you may ask. It was because I was part of the burn team that destroyed clasified documents. The funny part is, that by the time my team got the documents, they were already shreadded and double bagged. All we did is burn them.

I wouldn't say that. It means alot....it means that you or whoever have had the proper background checks and can be trusted around classified material. Computers, documents, shredded papers, etc..etc... it's all sensitive controlled material that should not be trusted to just anybody.

Many people handle classified material on a daily basis, write up reports, guard material, travel with the stuff. Yeah it seems like pretty much everyone in the military these days has a security clearance of some sort.....but there are others who actually need them, both in the military, government and private sectors.

I understand what you are saying sport, (edit, ooops I mean sporty) but the point, that I'm trying to make is that just because a person has a security clearance, does not necessarily mean that they are privy to a lot of secrets.

When I worked as a civilian for Lockheed-Martin at China Lake Naval Air Station, I had to undergo a security clearance. The reason was there were a lot of "secret squirrel" stuff going on out there. Doesn't mean that I worked on any or even saw any. I had to have the clearance in case I did see something, they could feel secure that I would keep it to myself.

Is there any such thing as a "Level" clearance or access? In The Bourne Supremacy, one high-ranking CIA employee asks the DCI (I think) for a "Level 5" access, or something like that. Is there any such thing as access or clearance levels denoted by numbers, and if so, what do they represent?

Well, that was Hollywood so don't consider it to be written in stone or a reliable source. The closest thing that would be, is possably a floor level. Access could be restricted by people only haveing a floor key, that they have need to know for.

Yankee Fire is a background check associated with the NRO.

I have seen this once before. It had to do with classified USAF programs associated with stealth technology. I was once associated with a program that had a requirement to interact with a USAF VLO asset. Access to the data collected (which revealed technical aspects and RCS data of the target) was classified "Level IV". Some other programs were classified "Level II". I did not have access to these programs, therefore I do not fully understand the security mechanisms. I don't know if these terms were associated only with specific USAF programs, with stealth in general, or with a large group of programs. I only know that they existed....

The clearance itself does not reveal any specific information, only the fact that the person has that level of clearance. I could tell you right now that I have a Top Secret-SSBI / SCI / SI / TK / G / B / HCS Clearance, however, you have no idea what I do for a living, right?


I know what that means. But if I talked about it. The government will be after me to find out It out

Put the measuring sticks away fellas, the feds are not going after any one.
Especially for discussing clearances, perhaps the information that is classified but not the clearances themselves.

This is the FULL list in it's entirety. However, some clearances are classified in themselves, and are created solely for certain projects, and designated as such. These types of clearances expire with the completion of the project or experiment. For example, the clearance to access a certain computer program may just be limited to 3 people in the world, therefore the need for specific clearances is imperative. A password and username would be delegated, and clearance set (codenamed). Upon expiration of the project, the clearance would be void.


I noticed you did not mention D, E & F clearances, or COMTAL plus a few others I shall not name.

Just out of curiosity, what is your mike rating?

Actually.......when referencing SCI compartments, the full codeword for the "B" compartment used to be classified Confidential.

However, the B compartment was discontinued as of last March, and (alomost) all B information is controlled under TK.
