>I wish DoS had more "continuous" force protection levels

I imagine they will, now.

I think State's head of diplomatic security hasn't been doing his job very well...

What happened was they never had staffing appropriate to the mission, so they switched to using contractors for PSD (far more than DoD ever did; for DoD, contractors were support and logistics and low-level on base security).

The triple worldwide security contract (Blackwater, DynCorp, Triple Canopy) seemed ok, but then there were political/PR issues with Blackwater.
