U.S. Gov't Weighs Social-Media Scans for Clues to Rogue Workers
"The U.S. government is studying whether it can scour social-media websites for clues about potential threats from workers such as Edward Snowden and the Washington Navy Yard shooter.

Both Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor who leaked government secrets, and Aaron Alexis, who shot and killed 12 people, had security clearances. The cases have exposed a flawed system of vetting such employees, some of whom are slipping through the cracks.

The pilot studies, which looked at the feasibility of using automated records checks as well as social-media websites, have turned up “actionable information,” Brian Prioletti, an assistant director in the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, said in testimony prepared for a congressional hearing tomorrow. ...

The draft measure would also initiate a review of public records and other databases to identify any information that might affect individuals currently holding a security clearance, according to the office of Senator Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat. "

So in other words the same heavy handed overbearing and secretive attitude that made these people do what they did in the first place.

Yeah, that'll fix it. God forbid they see themselves as the problem and these people as a symptom of the disease that is secretive government.
