Re: USAO background check

This type of activity might get a person on a terrorism watch-list nowadays, so is it enough to red flag a DOJ background check on me as a family member?

Thanks...



you think you are anonymous but you aren't. Just typing ^ means you are out.

Well, while I was typing up my reply to your question, along with a link to the questionnaire you'll be required to complete, you panicked and took down your post.

If you are truly this insecure about passing a suitability check, why are you pursuing gov't work?

I hope you aren't planning on government work, you're out just by bolding said word. I'm now out for quoting it. Anyone who even reads it is out. WE'RE ALL FUCKED!

Seriously though, if this check is anything like the check for getting Top Secret clearances (all I know about) then yes, it will likely be an issue. Depends a lot on what was being protested, probably. They care a great deal about the people around you. If your parent is someone they are uncomfortable with, they won't give you the clearances.

Well, its pretty tame run of the mill protesting, but the reason I had a question was because of the parent's alien status at the time (shorter leash). This person is now a very law-abiding government worker, so its not something I'm "insecure" about, but figured it was pertinent to check with the interwebs to save myself some drama if this was the type of thing that trip alarms. How exactly am I supposed to know what is important and not important in said background check, having never participated in one?
