Greta Van Susteren: Between Snowden and Alexis, How Are Contractors Getting So Much Access?

Greta Van Susteren has been reporting on the scene of today’s tragic shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, and during her report to Sean Hannity tonight, she noted how Aaron Alexis was an employee of a military contractor, and between him and Edward Snowden, she asked how contractors are getting the kind of access they should not be getting in the first place.

Hannity asked Van Susteren how much information is out there about Alexis already, especially considering he passed a security check despite his troubled history with the law. Van Susteren said he really didn’t have much of a security check to begin with, and brought up Snowden to ask an important question.

“Snowden didn’t have much of a security check as a government contractor, what in the world are we doing with these government contractors that seem to have so much access to information and abilities?”

She also told Hannity that she has been to military installations all over the world and has not once ever felt unsafe in one.
