    If you saw this guy's history in the news you probably asked yourself how did he pass a background check. Well he did go through a background check, a function that has been outsourced. The agency that did the check does the most for the federal gov't.

    This issue goes back to privatizing many gov't functions to save money and decrease the size of govt. it seems that like in most cases like blackwater in Iraq the problem with contractors is the same problem you are trying to solve by using a business instead of the gov't. lack of accountability. Rachel maddow did a segment on the company that handles the background checks and the employees basically said that there was hardly in supervision for rank and file employees.

    Just because you up and decide to kill a bunch of people one day, doesn't mean you've been missing Capital One payments or that your high school lost your transcripts.
