#1 He said "my response was clearly erroneous -- for which I apologize."

Not good enough! You lied [and perjured yourself] to the elected representatives of the American people whilst under oath. Your resignation please.

Top Security Clearance disqualifiers.

Criminal Conduct
Being accused of or admitting to committing a crime may disqualify a person from attaining a security clearance, regardless of formal charges. Both multiple lesser offenses and one serious crime can be considered a reason for disqualification. Mitigating factors can include whether or not the crime was recent, isolated or involuntary.

Drug and Alcohol Involvement
Illegal involvement with drugs including possession, cultivation, processing, manufacture, purchase, sale or distribution can be considered disqualifying. A history of alcohol or drug abuse can be detrimental to a person applying for a security clearance. Signs of rehabilitation can lessen the detrimental effects.

Sexual Behavior
Criminal, compulsive or addictive sexual behavior may be grounds to reject an application for security clearance. Exceptions might be made if the behavior occurred before adolescence or if there are no recent indications of the behavior.

Personal Conduct
Omitting facts, lying, general dishonesty and refusing to cooperate in the process for obtaining a security clearance will be used as grounds for disqualification. Whether you have done something else that may disqualify you or not, being honest about it will always be better, and may even provide mitigating circumstance. Lying about it will only make it that much more likely you will be disqualified.
