The Washington Post has a major story on a whistleblower’s winning a lawsuit against a background-investigation company that had employed him and then fired him. That company is USIS, and apparently in Pennsylvania, Blake Percival had discovered that BI’s were being glossed over to meet revenue goals. The story by Chris Davenport in the Washington Post is “The whistleblower who exposed U.S.’s flawed security clearance system finally gets his reward.”
It isn’t immediately apparent if this was just for lower-level clearances (like Secret). But given the recent concerns over terror, this is a very big deal.
