LTE: Privatizing security

In a recent 'Letter to the Editor' (LTE) in the SI Advance a writer comments on Republicans passing legislation to allow private companies to win no bid contracts to guard ports and army bases;

Shortly after 9/11, with no protest from the Republican Congress (including Congressman Vito Fossella), the Bush administration privatized security and gate-keeping at bases and ports, with outsourced companies holding no-bid contracts.


The military is being criticized for risking security at bases and for a process that awarded $1 billion in contracts without competitive bidding.
