Commentary and Opinions

It almost goes without saying that security clearances are of paramount importance in the field of homeland security. Whether a homeland security-related job involves access control, biometrics, border protection, disaster recovery, emergency preparedness, IT security, maritime and port security, rail security, security at the state and local level, or urban security, there is no doubt that a successful candidate-for-hire is going to need either a Secret or Top Secret clearance.

With Secretary of State John Kerry releasing the State Department's annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report, global human rights organization International Justice Mission (IJM) is saying it continues to call upon Congress and the State Department to protect the integrity of this diplomatic tool in the fight against modern-day slavery.

With release of the U.S. State Department's 2014 Trafficking In Persons (TIP) report, it is critically important to focus on facts and tangible progress made on the ground in order to put into perspective the assessment made on each country in combating the global problem of human trafficking, according to the Royal Thai Embassy in Washington DC.

With an alleged ringleader now in U.S. custody, investigative scrutiny here on Capitol Hill is zooming in tighter on the September 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. The outcome of this probe may even have an effect on who is ultimately selected as the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
