One day after Aaron Alexis, a former Navy reservist who was working as a civilian contractor, shot 12 people to death and wounded eight others, authorities were trying to piece together the details of his security clearance. Alexis had a security card that allowed him access to the Washington Navy Yard, and shot his way into an office building by killing a police officer at the base and grabbing his handgun.
