WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Wednesday he was putting his deputy in charge of in-depth reviews of U.S. military security worldwide in the wake of the Washington Navy Yard shooting, including into security clearances like the one given to the suspected shooter.
"Time frame, the depth of the clearance, kind of clearance, access, different clearances given to individuals. We're going to look at all that," Hagel told a news conference.
"Obviously the longer clearances go without review, there is some jeopardy to that. There's no question about it. So we're going to take a look at every one of those components."
