If LHO had a crypto clearance and he was being discharged, he may have visited the Marine CIT -Counter Intelligence Team- not the CID which as you pointed out has a criminal investigation mission. There are only 3 clearances. The "add ons" are for special intelligence programs-so technically there is no category "above Top Secret" . Perhaps the CIT was debriefing LHO in view of the fact he was leaving a special program. This would probably consist of warning him that because he was no longer in the program, he still is not allowed to discuss or convey what information he was exposed to while on active duty. They would also probably discuss the penalties that would befall him should he reveal any classified information he had access to. He may also be required to sign a statement acknowledging the briefing took place and he was given due warning re: penalties in case he broke his required silence.
