www.federalsoup.org. I think there is something in your past that they are looking closely at before they issue your clearance. Not that you are being dishonest to them, but I've never seen you give particulars of your situation (nor do I read every post here, so maybe you have), its just that there is more than likely something pretty major in your past to why it is taking so long. That, or they are holding on to it to see if you mess up again. Any way, go to the security section of that website. They will give you a clear idea as to why your clearance is still under investigation. There was someone one who was VRA on jet careers whose clearance took 18 months. Lord knows what he was up/in to.
