John,

All that I can say is your post is nonsense. If by SCI you mean
Sensitive Compartmentalized Information which is the US mean of
the abbreviation, such material only existed at the Top Secret
level.

If by SAP you mean, Special Access Program, the US meaning of
the abbreviation, then such programs are set up for special
application where the 'need to know' is limited to a certain
designated group of people. The Personnel Reliability Program is
an example, personnel who are authorized or in training to
either work on nuclear weapons, deliver nuclear orders, or
handle the nuclear codes and key are designated on written
orders. These are the only ones allowed to deal with the
specific material even though others may indeed have a higher
level clearance.

If you will review the Department of Energy Definitions and
Army Regulation 380-5. You will see there is no half
way point between Secret and Top Secret. A Q clearance gives
access to material and data especially limited under the
Atomic Energy Act. It is not between anything.

NATO classified material is not a level it parallels the US,
UK, French, German, etc., etc. It is pact organization
classified designation.

COSMIC TOP SECRET simply means NATO Top Secret. Again, simply
review Section VIII of AR 380-5.

http://www.usapa.army.mil/pdffiles/r380_5.pdf

Eyes Only is not a classification, but an order. It is no
regulatory designation. Marshall and Hap Arnold use to
correspond with one another on Arnold's health. Arnold
classified his letters as Secret and added an Eyes Only for
General Marshall as he did not his health problems spread around
either his or Marshall's staff.

My access during my stay in Europe was NCSA, Cosmic Top Secret
Atonal. I did not have a COSMIC Top Secret Clearance a la Robert
Dean. This is quite incorrect! During my stay I was authorized
to see COSMIC Top Secret information relevant to my duties. My
clearance was Top Secret, when I left Europe my access to COSMIC
Top Secret information ended, but my Top Secret clearance
continued. Again, see AR 380-5.
