ALI MOORE, PRESENTER: Tonight, three whistleblowers say security at Australian military bases and embassies has been significantly compromised by a deliberate fabrication of information to fast-track security clearances.

The three former Defence workers say they were given direct instructions by senior Defence staff to fabricate security checks on civilian and military personnel.

They say the fake security clearances have left a gaping hole in Australia’s national security and compromised ASIO’s records.
