An embarrassing Australian security failure


There should be red faces aplenty among Australia's security services today following the trashing last night of the Syrian Embassy in Canberra. Surely they don't need even more hundreds of millions in government financing to realise there was a risk of just such an event. 
I know the current Syrian administration is not the flavour of the month with our, and most other, governments but that does not absolve us from an obligation to ensure the safety and welfare of their diplomatic representtion. 
See the ABC news report on the sacking of the embassy here.
