    'Hire Non-Swedes for Sensitive Posts'

    Swedish security service Säpo wants to make it easier for foreign nationals to fill sensitive positions within the Swedish state as part of a “necessary modernization”.

    The government is set to review the laws governing Säpo’s role in determining who can be hired for government positions requiring a security clearance, the Sydsvenskan newspaper reports.

    Currently, the law gives Säpo the power to stop foreign nationals and others deemed to be inappropriate for sensitive positions.

    But as the Swedish labour market becomes woven ever more tightly within the larger EU labour market, Säpo believes its policies of automatically shutting foreign citizens from sensitive jobs with the Swedish state are outdated.

    “This type of modernization is necessary. We do after all have free movement in Europe,” Säpo director general Anders Danielsson told the newspaper.

    Previously, a cabinet decision was required before hiring a non-Swede for positions requiring a security clearance.

    Säpo hopes the change will allow it to hire competent foreign staff.

    Danielsson also believes that the agency will have to perform checks on an increasing number of people employed at private companies contracted to carry out vital functions within society, such as operating nuclear power plants.

    Currently, Säpo isn’t allowed to investigate the backgrounds of people employed at privately owned nuclear plants.

    “There’s pressure from public opinion here. People think that Säpo should be checking on the people who run our nuclear reactors,” he told Sydsvenskan.

    Danielsson also wants Sweden’s state agencies to adapt to NATO standards and bolster protections of digital information.

    He also added that it’s becoming more difficult for Säpo to define what exactly constitutes “national security” and to protect “Swedish interests” in a globalized age.

    In Danielsson’s eyes, an electronic attack is currently the biggest threat facing Sweden, as such an attack could not only compromise the country internally, but also make Sweden more vulnerable to military and other external threats.

    Modernization being put above national security? Are these people high on crack? Our military defence has already been slaughtered and transformed into little more than a beefed up police force able to perform squad sized patrolls in other distant countries of no value to our national security. Now they want SÄPO to be infiltrated by foreigners?

    They're not even talking about diversity in the sense of hiring citizens of foreign descent anymore but actual foreigners. And the reason they use for this blantant display of retardism and high treason is not a desired increase in efficiency and security but "necessary modernization". Necessary? Modernization? The necessary modernization of turning Sweden into a tool of foreign powers?
