WASHINGTON  —An investigation has identified dozens of members of the US military and defense contractors, including those with top-level security clearances, as having obtained child pornography,  the US Defense Department said on Friday.

The finding by investigators, released by the Pentagon, is particularly alarming because many of the individuals would have access to the nation's most heavily guarded secrets. Among those implicated in the probe were individuals tied to the National Reconnaissance Office and the National Security Agency.

The Boston Globe first reported the results of the investigation after obtaining documents through the Freedom of Information Act.

Some of the individuals have been prosecuted while other cases remain in limbo.
