Alleged Spy Snowden and Naval Yard Shooter Alexis vetted by same agency

Aaron_Alexis-FBI_ImageFormer NSA analyst Edward Snowden and the man responsible for the D.C. Naval Yard shooting, Alexis Aaron, were investigated by the same Agency.

In a statement on Thursday, USIS said that it conducted Alexis’ background check in 2007. No further information was available as USIS’ contract prohibits it from retaining information obtained in its background checks.

USIS has taken more than $400 million from the U.S. government in the past two years for its services and is under investigation by the federal government for alleged criminal violations in the performance of background checks.
