Shoddy mass production...
What so many recent incidents reveal is a need for a revamp of the very concept of secrecy and security clearances in the .mil/.gov world from the ground up.
By declaring so many things to be secret, we have created a need for legions of people with clearances. In order to process those legions of clearances for less than the GDP of Bolivia and before the heat death of the universe, we wind up subcontracting out to mass producers what should be an in-house cottage industry done by dedicated craftsmen.
