MILITARY bases and navy ships will be turned into virtual fortresses under plans to beef-up security in the wake of a major terrorist plot.
Taxi drivers and other members of the public will be banned from entering military bases without getting high-level clearance after an urgent review found Australia's frontline defence facilities were among the least protected in the world.
The top-secret review also found Australia's top defence brass would be vulnerable to a terrorist strike and recommended their leafy military showpiece, at Duntroon in Canberra, be turned into a secure compound.
Among sweeping reforms, the review calls for bases to be made more secure in the wake of an attempted terror plot by Islamic extremists.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced the review on August 5 after police arrested four men loyal to the Somalia-based terrorist movement al-Shabaab during raids in Melbourne.

An Australian military facility prior to the terrorist threat would have been a ripe target for terrorists to kill servicemen or destroy military hardware.
Australia like the USA, UK and other places should not allow Somalis and other muslims to immigrate. The totle should probably be Somali Cabbies Threat To Military Security. They all get jobs at airports or driving cabs that go to airports.

Somalia and most other Muslim states.
We are at war with radical Islam and we act as if it is business as usual.
Our government thinks they can handle national security with terrorist watch list.
We had better wake up to reality soon. The terrorist are out there they arent stupid and they will find away to get here. Why are we making it easy for them?
