Applicant was born and educated in Morocco, came to the United States in 1999, applied for U.S. citizenship in 2004, and became a U.S. citizen in 2007. In 2004, he bought an apartment worth about $34,000 in Morocco for use by his mother. He married a citizen of Morocco in 2004, and she resides with him in the United States and intends to become a citizen. His mother, four brothers, father-in-law, and mother-in-law are citizens and residents of Morocco. He kept his Moroccan passport and national identity card after becoming a U.S. citizen, but he destroyed them when he learned that they raised security concerns. When he submitted his security clearance application, he failed to disclose two civil actions to which he was a party and some of his foreign travel, because he did not understand the questions. Clearance is granted. CASE NO: 10-04378.h1

11-05983-h1 08/28/2012 Financial GRANTED Details
Applicant’s financial problems commenced in 2006 when he first discovered his accounts were delinquent. As a ship’s master with lengthy absences aboard ship six to seven months each year, Applicant’s wife had control of the family finances. He discovered she had: opened accounts and credit cards in his name; run up accounts without paying them; failed to make monthly mortgage payments for over 15 months; failed to file or pay state income tax for a multiple year period; and lied to him about her mishandling of the family finances. Once he determined the extent of his financial problems, he took responsibility for the family finances away from his wife, enlisted his mother-in-law’s assistance in handling them when he is away, hired an attorney to assist him in the foreclosure action, and hired an accountant to represent him with the state income tax issues. He has resolved all but one of his delinquent accounts and is in the process of resolving the remaining account. Applicant has demonstrated a meaningful track record of debt reduction and elimination. There are no questions or doubts as to Applicant’s reliability, trustworthiness, and ability to protect classified information. Clearance is granted. CASE NO: 11-05983.h1

Between 2002 and 2005, Applicant disseminated sensitive and proprietary information to an independent consultant without authorization.

Clearance is denied. CASE NO: 11-00541.h1

11-14764-h1 08/27/2012 Financial GRANTED Details
Applicant mitigated the Financial Considerations concerns.
