A report due out today will reveal that investigators testing security conditions at 10 federal sites were able to smuggle bomb components past guards every time they tried. The Government Accountability Office was behind the test, which exposed lax security at sites including the State Department, the Department of Justice and the Office of Homeland Security.
In each case, actual bomb parts were smuggled in and bombs were easily assembled on site.
Also uncovered, an incident during which a guard inadvertently allowed a baby to go through an X-ray machine. The guard was fired, but later sued—and won!—for proving a lack of training in handling the machine.
It's safe to say that the Federal Protective Service, charged with keeping the sites safe, is in the crosshairs over this report.
