Mother has Turkish citizen friend visiting for Christmas


I am the mother with a son that has a security clearance. He is visiting with his family from out of state and has concerns with my friend staying over during their vist. My friend is the son of a former Turkish ambassador to the Us. He was born in Miami FL while she was her on assignment. He has duel citizenship but lives in Istanbul. Is his presence here harmful to my son’s clearance?


There is nothing to be concerned about regarding your friend. Your son does not have ties or obligations to this person, and the fact that he is a U.S. citizen negates any would be concerns.
