President Obama and Flynn's security clearance has nothing to do with this. It's a smoke screen. It's about access. I had a secret clearance because I worked on weapons systems. That gave me access to things , and only things that pertained to that. I could not waltz down to Langley and say I wanted to see everything they had classified "Secret". They would lock me away. Flynn was supposed to be vetted for the "access" he would get as NSA adviser. That is supposed to be a very deep vetting. He has access to the situation room for goodness sake. This has nothing at all to do with the military's vetting for his security clearance. Many people have a pilot's license. Yet they won't let them fly Air Force One. They would go through a very deep vetting for that. Same deal. Yet the "blame Obama" smoke screens seem very effective. Why didn't Trump do a deep vetting on Flynn for this very important job which gave him "access" to the most high level secrets? Their answer? Obama!!! Go figure.
