Snowden's background check found to be inadequate
National Counterintelligence Executive Frank Montoya, who led the review, said the security check by a private contractor “did not present a comprehensive picture of Mr. Snowden,” reports The Wall Street Journal, which obtained a copy of the review documents. The review found that the US Investigations Services (USIS) of Falls Church, Va., the largest security background check firm working for the federal government, did not verify Snowden’s account of a past security violation and his work for the CIA. The review also criticized the firm for not looking thoroughly at a trip to India Snowden failed to report, and for not interviewing or seeking enough information from anyone other than his mother and girlfriend, the Journal reported.
