Official: Amb. Stevens Refused Additional Security | Military.com
I also believe the Obama's themselves have made special requests around security in/around the White House - those may have changed after recent events.
It seems clear to me that sometimes the "boss" is his/her worst enemy when it comes to personal security.
It is also clear to me that I don't have any interest living in a country so fortified that I have no access to my government and those who are elected.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Have there been many other instances over the years where people have succeeded in jumping the fence to see the POTUS? Seven times this year seems excessive, and the fact that their attempts were successful is unusual, to say the least. Should we now expect to see the fence electrified or barbed wire added, like a third world country might do? I find it hard to believe that there are not sensors that are constantly being monitored from within the White House, though, because I believe there are, and you probably wouldn't get far. Strange bit of recurring drama....
