What is the difference between Interim Pending and Interim Declined?
My understanding is they are the same, the Interim is not granted and a full investigation must take place.
I ask because I answered yes to question 21 and this is my only “black” mark. No drugs, no debt, 2 addresses in the last 16 years, no arrests, no tickets, never been fired, no travel to Cuba/Russia/Yemen/etc…
With the statement from the Secretary of Defense 2 years back that applicants should not be denied Interim clearance solely on question 21; I am trying to get a grasp on why I was not granted an Interim.
