Updated Pentagon Metric

The Defense Department reported a roughly twofold increase in soldiers losing their security clearances due to high debt. Owing others large amounts of money is an identified risk for those in the military. Those struggling to stay afloat could reduce their debts by selling secrets.

Whether it results in bribery or treason, the Pentagon continues to monitor this metric. How many soldiers were just filling their patriotic duty of going shopping for their country as ordered by their Commander in Chief post 9-11? How many did their part to help record corporate profits? How many spent their money on personal body armor to increase their chances of coming home in one piece?
