Woman who threatened to kill Michelle Obama on Christmas Vacation likely a U.S. Federal Govt employee

Kristy Lee Roshia, the 35 year old woman arrested and charged with threatening First Lady Michelle Obama, is most likely an employee of the U.S. federal government, if documents cited by the U.S. Secret Service are accurate.
Roshia, currently being held without bail in federal custody in Hawaii, was arrested Saturday December 19th less than two miles away from the house where President Obama and his family will be staying for Christmas. The rental house, which is the same one the Obamas rented last Christmas, is a 7,000 square foot beachfront home which reportedly rents for $4,000 a night.

According to media reports, on November 9th of this year Roshia sent a rambling letter to the Boston Secret Service office along with photographs of herself, and included a Hawaii return address located on Kane'ohe Bay Drive.

A public listing for one "Kristy L Roshia" states she has lived in the Massachusetts cities of Chelmsford, New Bedford, Dracut, Bedford, and Lowell, and is related to one James L. Roshia. The Boston Globe refers to Roshia as being from New Bedford, MA. Wikipedia notes that Kaneohe, Hawaii is home to nearly 35,000 people and that the "Marine Corps Base Hawaii lies across the south end of K?ne?ohe Bay from the central part of K?ne?ohe, although the town stretches along K?ne?ohe Bay Drive to the base perimeter."

The Honolulu Advertiser, in their article  Woman allegedly menaced first lady, reported that on November 10th, "Roshia called the Boston office and told a receptionist "I will kill Michelle Obama" and "I will kill Marines," according to the affidavit, signed by Secret Service Special Agent John Woodruff....On Nov. 10, agents informed Kane'ohe Marine Corps Base officials of the threats and law enforcement agents here began investigating the matter".

Nothing is noted as what to occurred, if anything, from November 10th to December 19th. Three secret service agents visited Roshia at the same Kane'ohe Bay Drive address this past Saturday December 19th and took her into custody. The report continues, "She said she had traveled to Hawai'i in September "to protect Obama" and since then has been "working the golf course at the Marine Base," according to the affidavit".

Roshia reportedly "lunged at and assaulted an agent" while in custody and made further threats to the Oval Office. The report goes on to state  "National federal court records show that a woman named Kristy Roshia was arrested in Tewksbury, Mass., in November 2007 on a Washington, D.C., charge of threatening bodily harm. She pleaded guilty to the charge in July 2007 and was placed on two years' probation. According to Woodruff's affidavit, Roshia appeared at Secret Service headquarters in Washington, D.C., in May 2007 and threatened to kill an agent there as well as "any woman that got in her (Roshia's) way."

MSNBC reported that the Secret Service affidavit mentions Roshia's history of strange behavior going back to when George Bush was in office: "As early as 2004, she told the agency that "although her mission is to assassinate the president, she has no desire to hurt him," the document states."

Roshia was is being held without bail for a mental competency exam with the next hearing scheduled February 9th.

The golf course in question, which Roshia allegedly claimed to work at,  is Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course , part of the Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS), a nonprofit organization whose stated mission is "To contribute to the readiness and retention of Marines, Sailors, and family members aboard Marine Corps Base Hawaii by providing fitness and recreation programs, Marine and family services, and business activities in garrison and deployed environments."

The golf course itself is touted as "one of the world's best military golf courses, consistently voted Number One by DoD patrons. The Kaneohe Klipper is an 18-hole championship golf course with separate driving range, chipping green and putting green... Enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze as it caresses beautifully manicured fairways." The course, open 6am to 630pm in the summer, also offers a "Young Chippers" program, open to "authorized patrons aged 5 – 18".

Marine Corps Community Services offers a wide variety of services to Marines and their families,
including a 24-Hour Car Wash, 24-Hour Laundromat, Adventure Training, Auto Skills Center, Barber & Beauty Shops, Tailor Shops, Veterinary services, and recreation such as a bowling alleymovie theatre,  two libraries, fitness programs, personal trainers, counseling services, etc. 

MCCS offers volunteer opportunities to the public as well, encouraging those in the community to get involved: "Volunteers are making a difference in the Marine Corps! You too can make a difference in your military community by volunteering!...Volunteering allows you to: •Learn new skills or brush up on old ones.•Meet new people and make new friends. •Work flexible hours.•Learn about the different base services. •Receive on-the-job training. •Fill resume gaps. •Receive references and letters of recommendation. •Network and build working relationships with individuals within your community. •The volunteer organization you choose may require special skills for the volunteer position. Therefore a resume and interview may be requested."

Employment at MCCS facilities, on the other hand, is a different matter. An extensive background check is purportedly required for what is, in actuality, a job with the United States Marine Corps in a Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) federally funded position. Their webpage states:


The MCCS employment section lists job vacancies in Arizona, California, Missouri Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virgina, as well as Japan.

The employment application for MCCS is entitled NAF EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION FORM -MARINE CORPS COMMUNITY SERVICES (MCCS) United States Marine Corps,
and asks if the applicant has  "Previous Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) & Appropriated Fund (APF) Employment", meaning previous government employment.

The question here is, if Kristy Roshia has a several-year history of making mentally unstable and violent death threats against presidents and government agents, why was she allowed, if she in fact works at the Marine Base golf course, to pass the security screening and exttensive background check, which is outlined below?
She also allegedly threatened Marines in November, and wasn't arrested until late December. If she was indeed employed by MCCS golf course, she had the opportunity for intimate contact with enlisted Marines and their families.
Why did it take so long to arrest her, even if she wasn't employed by the MSCC? Having close proximity and familiarity with the location of both the Marine base, their operations, as well as the presidential vacation home, would seemingly qualify as posing a legitimate threat to any competent and discerning agency.

If Roshia was on two year probation less than two years ago for her crime in Washington D.C., did her probation officer know that she had moved to Hawaii and was supposedly working at a Marine base? If not, why not? Weren't all these death threats Roshia made put on the record and available via a background check?

The MCCS employment application lists the following information and questions (I have emphasised in bold the relevant information):

The application then asks "List any certifications or licenses you hold that may qualify you for employment....List any job-related professional or technical organizations to which you belong...
Military Service Employment Experience... Previous Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) & Appropriated Fund (APF) Employment...
