    Best take on the story actually.


    My question today, given that a “leaker”, anonymous, shed the story to the press, is he a disgruntled political appointee, maybe from the prior administration? Someone genuinely trying to “clean things up”? Or just blame Obama for this one too? HInt, I doubt Obama has a key to the house, actually.

    The Secret Service needs to be back in the Treasury Department. It hasn’t been the same since they force moved it into The Department of Homeland Security.

    Mr.Troutma, I am one of your fans, but this ‘leaker’ regardless of motivation, has done our nation a great service by placing the SS under a microscope. It was easy to be amused, if also offended, by agents caught hiring prostitutes, or getting too drunk to do their jobs, but the fence jumper was the first of a group of revelations. Not only did the jumper make it deep into the White House, only stopped by an off duty SS agent, but we learn the door was unlocked and the alarm muted, it was unguarded on the porch itself, and he overpowered a guard just inside the door… he could have killed that officer.
    We have also learned that a young man fired several rounds of Ak 47 ammo at the opposite side of the building earlier this year and despite reports by SS agents of hearing shots, and one agent reporting they thought the WH had been hit by bullets, nothing was done, the agent in charge decided it was a shoot out between two individuals. The shooters car was found crashed, running, with the weapon in it. Two agents assigned to that side of the building had been sent to a location an hour distant to investigate a separate matter. It was nearly a week before the man’s actions were fully understood and he was arrested two days later.
    Finally, so far, we learn that during his visit to the CDC in Atlanta, the SS permitted a man with a record to get on the elevator with the POTUS and because the man kept taking pics of the Pres with his cell phone, they found at he had a record AND a gun.
    The president doesn’t need a key to the WH, but the president, this one, and those who will follow, need a SS that is performing at a much higher level of professionalism than this current group.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Clearly the Secret Service has some big problems. I am sure there are dedicated, very competent agents but it looks like management has become dysfunctional.

    The whole of Homeland Security is apparently dysfunctional from reports in the papers lately. Low morale, high turnover, the works. It was a poor idea to begin with and poorly implemented. We were so hot to consolidate government functions that we forgot TO BE SURE that they still worked.
