State Department Inspector General Evaluation of Kabul Embassy Security Contract

A September 2010 report by the U.S. State Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) identified numerous problems with the agency’s contract with ArmorGroup North America (AGNA) (owned by Wackenhut Services, Inc.) to provide security at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The deficiencies identified by the OIG include AGNA hiring guards without verifiable experience, training, or background checks, not being able to account for 101 government-furnished weapons that had been missing since 2007, and allowing individuals who were not properly screened to have unescorted access to government facilities containing sensitive materials.
