The company appears to be one of those that replaced military or other
Government security personnel at many facilities.  The main purpose
seems to have been to move the costs from one pocket to another.  I
understand that in almost all cases the people doing the job have
smaller compensation packages than those replaced, and there are usually
fewer people to do the job, but the costs stay the same or go up to pay
for the corporate structure above them. 

I am not saying that if security was provided by the military these
people wouldn't have made it as far as they did, but it is clear that
this company isn't doing an adequate job. 

The military has way too many regulations. Its time to get government out 
of the way and let the free market work its miracle on our nuclear weapons 
enterprise! Let's out source the whole thing: weapons development, 
procurement, deployment and targeting.
