Nums: What, you don’t have a security clearance?

Interesting article in the WSJ: “U.S. Relies on Spies for Hire to Sift Deluge of Intelligence”

The numbers that pop:

  • Almost 5 million folks are walking around with security clearances
  • Of those, almost 30% – 1.4 million — have top secret clearance
  • Of those, over 1/3 are contractors, i.e. non-government personnel.

Man, I would have bet the under on all of those.
