Audit Finds Serious Flaws in Navy Security Screening


Pogo.org reports -- "In a sad coincidence, the day a contractor employee named Aaron Alexis killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard was the day the Department of Defense Inspector General (DoD IG) released an audit report slamming security screening at U.S. Navy installations.

News accounts of the Navy Yard tragedy have focused on just one finding in the DoD IG report: that in recent years a total of 52 convicted felons were given access to Navy installations. While we understand the mainstream media’s fondness for quick and simple numbers, the public should also be made aware of the report’s other astonishing findings.
DoD IG reviewed the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), a process used to screen and register contractors and suppliers seeking unescorted access to Navy installations and facilities."
