    You mean they have made RE more restrictive on account of 9/19? What would be the logic (or illogic) of that?

    I expect that the secret service is probably subject to dangerously restrictive rules of engagement, though.
    Perhaps you would prefer North Korea where govt. guards aren't subjected to these "dangerously restrictive ROE."

    Er, depends. What kind of $$ are we talking about? $1000? $10,000? $1,000,000,000?

    IN a regime where mindless corporate-backed Congressional lackeys doll out $100 billions in corporate welfare, somehow, a few wasted dollars on hanky-panky doesn't seem like a big deal.

    Yes. And it apparently comes at a bargain--the SS director is able to protect the Pres without the use of excessive force for a measly $150K salary.

    Results are the only thing that matters. The rule is simple: you get the results, you keep your job and I won't complain. You don't get the results, you're fired. THE END.

A very important part of the SS mission is to limit access (that famous Obama word) to the places under their control - one does not use locks on their home and car to keep the honest people out.
    The SS is limiting access, or else O would be dead by now. They're just doing it in a way that doesn't make them thugs, unlike, say, the Ferguson police dept. which maces everyone in sight that smirks at them.

    I am not sure I would go that far.

    Under NK RE a trespasser would be dead before he got to the top of the WH fence.
    I might let him get as far as the WH front door. I might not, either. If he was wearing
    bulky clothing which might conceal an explosive device I would give the green light
    to take him out on the lawn.

    One thing we need more of are K9 assets- no trespasser would get anywhere near
    the WH with a few K9 unleashed against him.

    He's alive and well, because of luck, not because the Secret Service had anything to do with it.

    So the SS succeeded for 30 years because of luck? ?

    They benefitted from luck, recently. There's no arguing that.

    So they protected what some would say is the "most powerful man in the world" from getting hurt or shot for 6 years because of luck?

    Considering that a nutjob made it all the way to the East Room, before he was tackled by an off duty agent and an armed, convicted criminal was allowed into the same elevator car as the president, and no one was hurt, or killed...yes...it was luck.
