Hi ATS. This is my first thread...

I don't know if this is relevant anymore, considering "Rambro" may now be "Bro-b-que," but I spent some time hacking my way through all the new acronyms that this case has assailed me with, and so this is a rundown I did of one of Dorner's released documents. May or may not be totally accurate, I did my best, maybe some of you will find it helpful, or hopefully be able to refine it further.

Lol, "Rambro" was pretty funny but "Brobque" was poor taste

Nothing remarkable here, standard clearance level for his mos

So he had a top secret clearance. I'm sure you noticed a whole lot of "N/A" answers here. The learance took less than three months to get. It was likely done by a contractor who visits a few people who knew Dorner and asked if he was an ok guy. They said "Yes" and that was it.

I've been involved in this process both as a recipient of a security clearance and twice as a reference for someone who was getting a top secret clearance. My experience does not leave me with a lot of confidence in the system. In one case I was interviewed at my residence by a woman who worked for a contractor conducting the investigation. She asked innane questions, and I lied through my teeth. She then cut the interview short because (you'll love this) she was AFRAID of my dog. What dog? That little cocker spaniel you see up there to your left, who was behaving himself completely, but, you see, he LOOKED at her and she was frightened.

One of the techniques they use is to ask you if you no anyone else who knows the nominee and can they talk to them. That's pathetically easy to manipulate. In another case I was called on the phone and sked questions, including this one. I gave the name and number of one of my colleagues whose desk was near mine. I hung up, warned her, and her phone rang. She knew what to say.

So, a security clearance is what it is, but it isn't much to get worked up about. Most people who apply for them get them, and those who don't are denied for often really strange reasons. For example, if your grandmother lives in a communist country you can;t get one because the Bad Guy(tm) Commies might use your Granny to to compromise you. But march in a demonstration against the government ("Power to the People. Smash the State!") Hey, that's okay--just youthful indiscretion.

Um. I'm not worked up about it. I just spent a few hours translating acronyms, and thought someone else might be interested. I found it to be boring as whatever.

I agree. I wish I hadn't said it.

But, that is one thing I couldn't figure out. His occupation code is listed as 130. Anybody know what 130 is, because I couldn't find that particular occupation code anywhere I looked, and I searched hard for it.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to suggest you were. I just thought you and others might be interested in my perspective on security clearances in general since I've been through the process from both ends. You obviously put some work into this. FWIW I don't think 130 is a real MOS code. Borner was an officer, and those codes are usually 4 digits long. The supplementals are 3 digits, but they aren't all numbers.
