They never taught us in compliance class how to deal with dual citizens. If he had been a citizen of an evil country* and not the U.S., letting him see military information would be illegal. A coworker in a previous software job was a Chinese citizen. When we got bought by a big company with an export compliance department we learned she was not legally allowed to see the work she had been doing the past decade. It was related to high performance computing, which can't be exported to China. Letting a foreign citizen have information is legally the same as exporting to that country.

* The U.S. government has an official list of evil countries, including Iran, North Korea, and pre-revolution Libya.

Dual citizenship with one being Iran, filed for bankruptcy and lived in multiple places in less than 10 years.   How did this guy even get within sniffing distance of those plans?

I spent 2 hours with an investigator for my buddy and all he does is man a guard gate.

I had a job encrypting corporate systems back in the 90's.  We had to buy all our software overseas due to export restrictions.   What a giant pain in the ass.

"Hello? Human Resources? You may deal directly with me now; Col. Akir Nakesh. Mr. Khazaee will be working from home now, you will be shipping his laptop to me."

He shouldn't have been working on this contract in the first place.

Mr Khasaee, are you familiar with Florence, Colorado? No? Well you're going to spend the rest of your life there, so you will be. Good day, sir.

So this character is an Iranian citizen, bankruptcy in 2005, was a "temp" and we give this guy a classified job?  The Brits catch him and even after Snowden it didn't trip any red flags here?

I don't get it....

If I say something like, 'Geez, I don't want to work with someone from __________.  They are probably a terrorist or something' then, *I*, am a racist.  But if a co-worker is Iranian and someone catches him doing something bad, then I'm a fool for not figuring out that a __________ is probably up to no good.

Stupid retarded social standards.

Yeah, I stopped communicating with foreign born engineers from questionable countries after I asked the Egyptian guy with the TS/SCI clearance what he thought of the Israel/Palestinian issue.  For some reason, he got laid off a few weeks later.  I guess there was a pattern there.

In October, Khazaee hired a company to ship the boxes from his apartment on Oakland Street in Manchester to the port in Long Beach, Calif., where they were to be loaded onto the NYK Libra, according to court documents.

In late November, customs agents at the port inspected the shipment and found the documents, and days later identified them as belonging to three separate companies.


Somebody needs to read up on a couple of things called "scanners" and "the internet". Or if not the latter, at least "encrypted micro SD chip". Nobody's going to find that 64GB piece of plastic that's the size of a fingernail.
