13. PRIVATIZATION OF EMBASSY SECURITY IS BAD FOR AMBASSADORS AND BAD FOR AMERICA
The US took the step of privatizing security for Embassies around the world. It was bad judgement to have CIVILIAN personnel involved in a military action. They were unprepared and ill equipped to handle the situation. It was PPP and has to be changed. RISK assessments need to be made for security placement. EMBASSIES in hostile territories need MILITARY RESPONSES to attacks. WE SHOULD HAVE LEARNED something from IRAN.
