Twice burned?

Navy 0, opponents 2.

The shooter at Norfolk had a TSA badge. As did the shooter at the Navy Yard in DC in September. They also both had problems that might have suggested that they were potential security risks. Mr. Savage, the shooter in Norfolk, had convictions for manslaughter and drugs. The shooter at the Navy Yard had other issues.

Is there something wrong with the controls designed to prevent bad folks from getting TWIC IDs (that allow them access to “secure” facilities)? What’s the backup when the primary control fails?

Is this information controls, or some thing else? What else would you do?
