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.

MDWAA Incident: Bomb Threat from terrorists?

AUTHOR: - ()

Argenbright is also responsible for security at Reagan National Airport. Today, November 1, 2001, Northwest Airlines Flight 191, an Airbus A320 carrying 78 people from Reagan Washington National Airport to Minneapolis was diverted to Detroit Metro, landed at 10:12 a.m., according to a Northwest Airlines spokesman. The FBI said a passenger found a note while thumbing through the magazine pouch that said that there was a bomb on the plane. The flight was diverted to Detroit and F-15 fighters escorted it to a safe landing.

What will it take for MDWAA to assume responsibility and take action?

Argenbright Iranian Supervisor Poses Incredible Security Threat

AUTHOR: - ()

Sources provided additional anecdotal information about the blatant breaches of security posed by the Middle Eastern employees of Argenbright. For example, the previously-reported Iranian supervisor, ***Sedi*** was witnessed circumventing security procedures for Iranian passengers. On more than one ocassion, she has carried luggage onto aircraft for passengers so that it would not be known that the Iranian passengers had more than the allowed carry-on luggage. The fact that this is known to have been a practice before the hijacking and attack on the Pentagon should be of concern as it has critical implications on the future possibility, if not probability of future terrorist operations out of Washington Dulles International Airport.



These sources are now concerned that they may be held responsible by not reporting the incidents immediately and are not willing to discuss these matters with authorities. The greater concern, as stated, is that the routine circumvention of this procedure provides an ongoing weakness which can be exploited by terrorists at a future date.

Open Letter to Argenbright from this Ripoff Reporter. Sources Maintain continued security threat from Middle Eastern employees

AUTHOR: - ()

This Ripoff Reporter openly challenges Argenbright to take action and terminate the Middle Easterners at Dulles immediately. This is in the interest of national security. You erred in your judgement which contributed to the terrorist disasters, make no mistake about your analysis that Dulles was chosen by the terrorists because it was and is a weak link, and you have Middle Eastern employees who are sympathetic to the terrorists' cause.



I will give you one name as evidence of the widespread anti-American attitude. You have an Iranian supervisor named ***Sedi*** who is only one of the vocal, abusive anti-American employees. Send her back to Shiite-ville!
