Chantilly, Virginia - Argenbright Security, Inc. has the contract for airport security for several international airports across the nation. At Washington Dulles International Airport, according to sources, even several weeks after the terrorist attack on the Pentagon Argenbright still employs actively and vocally anti-American Middle Easterners at this location. Islamic security person wear their ethic and religious clothing and insult passengers with anti-American epathets.
Exacerbating the situation, MDWAA has not yet abrogated their contract, despite finding which would provide the necessary justification to do so. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has had the courage to take the decision and remove the contract, replacing it by applications from individual who must prove they are actually qualified to do the job. It is Argenbright that has given the bad name to airport security.
Argenbright not only provides airport security at Washington Dulles International Airport, but also at Philadelphia International Airport, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Boston International Airport, Newark International Airport, Denver International Airport, and several other major airport across the nation.
The FAA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) conducted investigations, and learned that an illegal immigrant worked at Dallas. That individual was detain and turned over to the INS.
Sources tell Ripoff Report that at Dulles, recently, a major security violation involved an individual getting by Argenbright security with a pen knife concealed on their person. At a spot check by the FAA, it was revealed that 7 of 20 individuals failed the necessary skills tests required for employment.
At SEA-TAC airport, it was learned that one of the Argenbright employees was a convicted felon involving a weapons charge. An Argenbright employee also had to be terminated when a passenger had to be taken off a flight at Phoenix Sky Harbor, enroute to LAX because he discovered that his derringer, that he thought he lost, was actually with him in his carry-on briefcase.
At Philadelphia International Airport it was discovered that several employees were working without having had a background check conducted. Perhaps the more serious situation involves the fact that Argenbright officials tried to cover the situation up by making false statements to the FAA concerning the training, testing and background verification of employees.
At Denver, they have a little different sort of problem. Evidently, the personnel became inappropriately zealous about their job and frisked female passengers because the underwire in their bras triggered an alarm in the metal detector. Argenbright defended these actions claiming that "...there was no prodding, probing, squeezing or groping involved." I guess Argenbright figures that there have got to be some perks to replace the low wages.
Since sufficient evidence has been provided that Argenbright is either not willing to or capable of complying with safety requirements, those who are in the position, must terminate the contracts with Argenbright. Given the situation at Dulles, it could be said that Middle Eastern sympathies influenced decisions to allow their "brethren" to obtain access to secure areas. Perhaps even facilitating the loss of over 7,000 American lives.
