This is the second time I've seen a suggestion along these lines.  The 
first was the statement that "since Major Briggs is working on classified 
stuff, he must be able to see Cooper's FBI reports".

This isn't how classification _works_, boys and girls.  Regardless of the 
level of one's security clearance, access to specific information is still 
governed by the "need to know".

And _why_ would an ex-FBI agent (in a mental institution, yet!) have any 
access or insight into "the goings on of US military intelligence"?
