Hillary's Embassy Crackdown

Hillary Clinton was not amused by new reports that guards at the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan held drunken frat-like parties and hired prostitutes. She has "zero tolerance" for the behavior and has ordered that the entire system of farming out security to private contractors be reviewed, a State Department spokesman said. The expose, out Tuesday, by the nonprofit Project on Government Oversight also found sleep-deprived guards regularly working 14-hour days, and guards whose command of English was so weak as to seriously impair critical communication with the 1,000 embassy personnel they're supposed to protect. Sen. Claire McCaskill, head of the subcommittee on contractor oversight questioned whether ArmorGroup, owned by Wackenhut Services Inc., should have its contract renewed.
