Nonsense... as someone who works in Defense and Aerospace I hold several Levels of US Clearance yet am a National (Citizen) of the UK.
The US and UK work closely together and share certain clearances, so the UK is one unique exception.  Your clearance and or NTK probably supersedes citizenship requirements.  Not all Brits could hold the clearances you do and have dual citizenship.  I suspect that between you, me, and questionmark, we all are correct.  At least you and I are going off experience??

wrong again, when I was working for the Air Force in Germany we had at least a dozen LNs with very high security clearances doing jobs that they would not allow many US citizens. There is only one or two organizations where non-US citizenship or double citizenship matters for a clearance.

When I was in boot camp, we had the son of a Turkish ambassador.  But I knew that I couldnít have dual citizenship.  The Presidency is one of those organizations.  And another is DOE.  We had a guy that had dual citizenship with Canada.  He had to leave when he didnít want to give up his Canadian citizenship.  And Iím pretty sure that the Persian and the Chinese that we have are all naturalized with no dual citizenship.  Because again, I canít have dual citizenship.  Like I was implying, we are all probably right but it depends on where we are at.
