The fear of infiltration is such that the NSA planned last year to investigate at least 4,000 staff who obtained security clearances. It detected potentially suspicious activity among staff members after trawling through trillions of employee keystrokes at work.
Suspect behaviour is said to have included staffers accessing classified databases they do not usually use for their work or downloading several documents, two people familiar with the software used to monitor staff told the Post.
The NSA is also creating a huge database known as WILDSAGE to help share sensitive intelligence among cybersecurity centers, according to the budget document. But the move has raised concern that the database could be infiltrated.
"Over the last several years, a small subset of CIA's total job applicants were flagged due to various problems or issues," one official told the Post. "During this period, one in five of that small subset were found to have significant connections to hostile intelligence services and or terrorist groups."
In 2011, Congress ordered Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to set up an "automated insider threat detection programme" to prevent further such leaks, stop possible abuses and identify double agents.

With more than 50% of the nation being religious morons who pledge allegiance to an imaginary sky daddy and are willing to do anything to please it.. I would be worried too.
They have a prophecy to self-fulfill.
Pope Francis renewed his appeal for peace in Syria and throughout the world on Wednesday, once again inviting Christians of every denomination, believers of every religious tradition and all people of good will to take part in the worldwide fast and vigil of prayer and penance for peace, which he has called for September 7th, the vigil of the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady, whom we venerate as Queen of Peace.

I have to wonder if they are really just looking for potenial whistleblowers. The word terrorists typically frightens the masses. Compared to whstleblowers who will make you tune in and listen to what the goverment does behind your back. Terrorists to them. Not so much to us.
