In his statement, Burch said that even if criminal charges were not pursued against the remaining names on the list, DCIS would take steps to alert their superiors for administrative action. Here's Burch's statement:Finally three years later the Pentagon finally decides to investigate 100's of child pornography fans who are civilian employees, military servicemen and contractors. Including more than 70 patrons with security clearances and 22 with Top Secret clearances. The investigation was was started in 2007 and closed in 2008 after only 57 employees were investigated. The investigation were of people under their ranks purchasing oversees child pornography on with their paypal accounts or their credit cards. The patrons have been allowed to continue their employment without interruption. Only 10 patrons were charged as a result of Project Flicker.

We work and contribute to their salaries, while their sitting on their fat asses watching child pornography in their offices and these are the people we entrust our countries security to.

I have tasked Defense Criminal Investigative Service representatives with reviewing each and every Project Flicker and related referral DCIS received so as to ensure action was taken regarding these allegations involving employees of the Department of Defense.

In situations whereby criminal charges will not be pursued, relevant information will be referred to the leadership of appropriate DoD organizations for administrative action deemed appropriate.
