    Re: Security breached: Intruder gets into White House

    Bumping ya up again Ockham.....Secret Service has now increased security outside the WH.


    Secret Service boosts security outside White House.....

    The head of the Secret Service has stepped-up security outside the White House after a man who jumped the fence made it into the presidential residence before being apprehended, the Secret Service said Saturday, as President Barack Obama insisted he still has confidence in the beleaguered agency.

    Director Julia Pierson ordered enhanced officer patrols and surveillance along the North Fence of the compound just after the incident on Friday evening, which triggered a rare evacuation of the White House as well as renewed scrutiny about the agency's ability to protect the president and his family. The Secret Service said Pierson had also ordered a comprehensive review of the incident.....snip~

    The small army of Secret Service agents guarding the White House carry a wide range of weapons and get training on how to repel sophisticated armed assaults – so why did no one shoot the intruder who jumped the fence on Friday and got all the way to the mansion’s doors?

    Officials inside the storied agency describe astonishment and embarrassment that no one tackled the suspect — identified as Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, of Copperas Cove, Texas — before he reached the grand columned entrance that looks out at Pennsylvania avenue. But they also defend the decision to hold their fire. “This wasn’t a military-style assault. He had no bag, no backpack, no visible weapons. And from the early reports from the officers he seemed to be mentally disturbed,” one insider told Yahoo News. “I know how to stop fence-jumpers,” the insider said. “We close Pennsylvania Avenue to pedestrians completely and we put barbed wire on top of the fence.” “But that’s not reasonable,” the source added. “We want Americans to be able to come up to that fence line and take pictures and have fun and enjoy it.”.....snip~

    Why the Secret Service didn
    What a pathetic excuse.

    No visible weapons? Guess what genius: Suicide bombers usually have no visible weapons either...because it's underneath their clothing!

    When something like this happens, the job is simple: Shoot first & ask questions later.
    Dumb ****s! Heads need to roll for this.

    And where did I say to remove "all secirity" [sic] from the border? I just said a complete fence across the whole border would be senseless.

    What is it with some of the liberals in this thread. Most of the conservatives are just discussing how bad it is that there was such a breech, not attacking Obama.

    Re: Security breached: Intruder gets into White House

    It has been a long time since we have seen the heroics of the two secret servicemen who covered Jackie Kennedy and Vice President Johnson during the Kennedy assassination and the secret serviceman who jumped in front of Reagan and took a bullet in 1981.

    Their reputation has been tarnished in the last few years.
