That figure got me wondering. Did someone really make 600 requests? Over what time period? Do you know how many days there are in a year?
It took one Google Search and the first hit, to find out that that is simply not true.
There were approximately 600 security requests and concerns many of which were, in fact, granted, and many of which were merely repeats.
Many also never went to Washington.
It would also be meaningless to make anything from that figure unless you were to compare similar statistics from other locations. For example, how many security requests and concerns are produced per year by the US embassy in Zambia? How many are granted and how many are denied?
