Do you support the banning of non left messengers on social media?
And losing a clearance isn't designed to silence anyone. The better question would be why was it active past his need to know? Is he a government contractor or employee with need to know sensitive government materials? As far as I can see the answer is no. So why does he have it still?
As an aside does anyone practice shooting sitting on the ground? I tried it today and it's not easy. I was worried about losing the bullet so I set up 10 feet in front of the burm on the instructors range and tried falling back on the ground, draw, and fire. It's harder than it looks and it took a few moments for me to complete the task. I didn't draw as I was falling for fear of losing the pistol or having an ND. I could see someone being shocked by being blind sided needing a second or three to recover draw and fire.
Just an observation
