Secret Service Falls Down on the Job

Earlier this month, a man carrying a knife jumped the White House fence and made it through the front door before he was stopped. But that security lapse wasn’t the first or even the most alarming for President Obama’s Secret Service detail. In a new story, the Washington Post details how three years ago, the Secret Service didn’t realize that a gunman in the street had shot at and hit the White House seven times until four days after the incident.
