The U.S. security clearance process, that failed to flag former spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, and the Washington Navy Yard shooter, needs reforms as simple as letting investigators use the Internet and forcing local law enforcement to cooperate. That's according to a congressional report, released on Tuesday. The report suggested federal investigators be allowed to tap tools ordinary Americans use to find out about a specific person, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. It commented that the Office of Personnel Management's Investigative Handbook, updated in 2007, places an almost blanket restriction on Internet use, but social media and search sites "contain a treasure trove of information about their users."
