A Secret Service agent, a member of the presidential protective division, lost his gun, badge, ID access card, and thumb drive.
They were stolen from his car near the White House!
The agent had parked his personal car behind Secret Service headquarters Washington on Monday. He had gone inside Secret Service headquarters for 45 minutes. When he returned, it was all gone!
The Secret Service said only that he would probably be punished for “not properly securing a government-issued weapon.”
Under normal circumstances, this would not be news. Under the current scandal ridden organization, this is just one more of a plethora of items that has continued to make Obama’s security detail a laughing stock.
The committee concluded that the Secret Service is an “agency in crisis” after a series of high-profile embarrassments over several years.
The investigation found new information about past scandals.
The report said that the Secret Service’s own investigation of the Colombia prostitution case uncovered multiple emails from agents and officers discussing plans to enjoy their surroundings.
One described the motto of the trip as “una mas cerveza por favor,” or “one more beer please”.
Just last month one Secret Service employee was arrested for sending lewd photos and propositioning a police officer he thought was a teenage girl.
Another included a list of items an agent planned to bring that including cash for prostitutes.
The committee found that agents did not vet multiple armed security guards who were near Obama during a 2014 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
During that trip Obama ended up on an elevator with an un-vetted armed contractor.
In April of this year, a 4-year-old penetrated the perimeter of the White House. Security agents rushed to the north lawn with their weapons drawn as a toddler jumped over a small bike fence outside the White House gate.
That happened the same week that an off-duty Secret Service member was arrested and charged with first-degree attempted burglary
Also in April: “Yet Another White House Fence Jumper Arrested!”
Also recently, Secret Service and the White House experienced another security breach when another drone was successfully flown over the grounds.
So I guess Obama will be watching his Tweets! Maybe he will learn something!
