Security Guards

I read this about the security guards on the Military Bases http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25 ... 77,00.html and found it more than disturbing.

Not too long ago bases were manned by military person, they were 'on duty' and usually carried a rifle.

Now this story says:
===================================================
SECURITY guards have been stationed at sensitive Sydney defence sites at Holsworthy and Glenbrook despite being given bogus security qualifications by a company under investigation by the corruption watchdog.

Four guards employed by Security International Services have told an Independent Commission Against Corruption inquiry that Roger Training Academy supplied answers to vital assessment booklets, needed to upgrade their security licences.

All copied the answers in the so-called "learner's guide", with one guard stationed at Glenbrook RAAF Base, Liaquat Ali Khan, saying his daughter filled out his workbook.

Ali Khan said the head of Roger Training, Ahmed Moosani, supplied him with his workbook and answers.
===================================================

I don't believe privatisation of these jobs is correct or the way to go. What does everyone else think?

Still trying to get my head around this, :roll: maybe when I think about it some more and am able to read the link with out distractions I willbe better placed to comment although my initial thought was actually - a gasp!
