The same government contractor did background checks on Snowden and Navy Yard shooter

Backgrounds of Snowden, Alexis checked by same firm
The same government contractor did background checks on NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Navy Yard shooting suspect Aaron Alexis.

WASHINGTON The company that scrutinized former spy agency contractor Edward Snowden for a U.S. government security clearance said on Thursday it also checked the background of the Navy Yard shooter, allowing him to obtain a "secret" clearance.

USIS, working as a contractor for the Office of Personnel Management, conducted a background review of Aaron Alexis, identified by law enforcement authorities as the shooter who killed 12 people at the Navy Yard before he was shot dead.
