    Secret Service head in hot seat after White House breach details revealed

    Secret Service head in hot seat after White House breach details revealed | Fox News

    Secret Service Director Julia Pierson will face questions about how an armed intruder jumped the White House fence and made it as far as the East Room when she testifies before a House committee on Tuesday.

    Sources confirmed to Fox News on Monday that 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez overpowered a Secret Service officer in the Sept. 19 incident before a struggle and "wrestling" inside the executive mansion ensued. Gonzalez was eventually tackled by a counter-assault agent in the East Room after he reached the doorway to the Green Room, a parlor overlooking the South Lawn.

    The revelation that the intruder made it much farther than originally known came on the eve of a scheduled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing that will address the breach, as well as lawmakers' "concerns" about the Secret Service's security protocols.
    Someone is going to lose their job. This is outrageous. I guess ISIS knows exactly where to go now. Unbelieveable!

    The SS has dropped the ball more on Obama's watch then any other! And a White House housekeeper found a bullet lodged in a wall yesterday and upon examination it was discovered that multiple rounds were fired upon the White House four days earlier!

    I had always had the utmost respect for the secret service. I am really shocked. There has to be some members of the service who are just pissed off at how their reputation has just gone down the tubes.

    This is a damn shame, and I agree with you American - someone is going to lose his/her job over this, as it should be.

    i would not count on any individual being fired over this. How many "scandals" (like fast & fuzzy, Solyndra, Benghazi, IRS or the VA) result in firing(s)? Generally the blame is paced upon "the system" and the standard reaction is to hold hearings, conduct studies and to formulate a more expensive (bigger gov't) "solution" to deal with the "crisis".

    Yes and I can see it now - the outrage over this incompetent ss we have now can pave the way for a more broader and expensive security for the president.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    This is what happens when you piss-off your military.

    Yes, I know the SS is technically law enforcement, but it's filled with Vets.

    Yep, locking the darn door is out of the question - since that solution does not require additional personnel.
