(This isn’t satire – it’s G4S!)
Is it only me that’s noticed G4S were the company in charge of airport security which let some of the 9/11 hijackers slip through?
Through a contract with United Airlines, a company called Argenbright Security operated passenger security checkpoints at Dulles International Airport, where five hijackers passed through before boarding American Airlines Flight 77 on September 11, 2001.
But Argenbright were a subsidiary of Securicor, who are now – yes, you’ve guessed it – G4S.
The company was also fined for hiring people to work on airport security with criminal convictions for assault and drug possession.
In the US, FAA investigators found that Argenbright was regularly employing people who didn’t speak English and that it was paying workers no better than wages in a fast-food restaurant.
Now, where have I heard that before?
Don’t you think – in light of the complete shambles G4S has brought to the security operation for the Olympics before the bloody thing has even got started - this is pretty important information we should all know about?
And what about the government? Did they have this information before they handed over security for the Olympic Games to G4S?
And if the government didn’t know about it – why not?
Oh and here’s yet another example of the incompetence and unprofessionalism of G4S:
