President Obama has received more death threats than any president in American history. So, you would think that maybe the Secret Service would be there to ensure that he is consistently protected. Unfortunately, this is not the case, as was revealed by a recent investigation. This story might seem harmless on the surface, but it only takes one mistake for everything to come crumbling down. It was slack protection in 1963 which led to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Let’s not let this one happen again.
Secret Service agents tasked with protecting President Obama were taken away from their primary job in 2011 and assigned to protect a friend of the agency’s director.
The Washington Post reports that “Operation Moonlight” moved agents from the White House to Maryland because then-Director Mark Sullivan was worried about his assistant who was being harassed by a neighbor.
Members of the “Prowler Team” are responsible for patrolling the edges of the White House, but were diverted by Sullivan. Members of that team also monitor the area where Obama enters and exits Marine One and where people gather to watch the president and his family travel by motorcade.
