Congress: US secret service in crisis

42
The US Secret Service (United States Secret Service, USSS), which is responsible for protecting the top officials of the state, is in deep crisis. About this resource writes Expert Online with reference to the report of the United States Monitoring and Government Reform Committee.


Congress: US secret service in crisis


The main tasks of the service are: “the protection of the president, vice-president, their relatives, other high-ranking officials, former presidents, presidential candidates and vice-presidents, as well as representatives of foreign states during their visits to the USA”.

The compilation of the 232-page report on the crisis situation in the USSS was conducted during the year.

According to the resource, “Among the incidents described in the report, in which the US Secret Service was seen, are present: repeated violation by outsiders of the security of the perimeter of the White House, the residence of the US presidents in Washington; drunk driving on the territory near the White House; unauthorized access of unauthorized persons with weapons in close proximity to President Obama; the use of intimate services of prostitutes during working hours; hiring Secret Service employees without verifying their citizenship, as well as a number of other gross violations. ”

At the end of the hearings, committee chairman Jason Chaffetz commented on the outcome of the investigation as follows: “This report shows that the US Secret Service is in crisis. The moral and moral state of the employees has fallen, the number of layoffs in the department has increased, and the violation of discipline and safety rules continues.

According to him, “in recent years, the leadership has changed several times in the US Secret Service, but the department still remains in crisis, so the new leadership needs to stop the systematic violations occurring within the department and restore its former prestige.”

      Are you so confident in his presidency? If it suddenly becomes what I doubt, nothing will fundamentally change in relations with Russia. The USA is a country behind the scenes, from the arms lobby to corporations.

        Under any president, nothing will change; in the USA, the president decides little, he cannot even veto (the president’s veto is overcome by 2/3 of the congressional votes).

        By the way, about the lobby, the US Department of Defense is hostage to defense corporations, they are forced to purchase rockets, bombs and weapons in quantities that are not needed for the country's defense. Say, if you don’t buy tomahawks for 1 year, then the production will have to be mothballed, and it is not so easy to resume (with great time and financial costs).

            Usual whining of the next special service for the United States to increase funding is nothing more. Moreover, the security service in the United States is subordinate to the Treasury Department. As we like to say, finance, Karl !!! laughing .And whoever says that, the main indicator of the success of any special service is the absence of an emergency, in this case an attempt on protected persons. Therefore, we can safely say that there is an internal intrigue.

            I agree +. Here for reference:

            "The secret service, which is responsible for guarding US President Barack Obama and his family, is recognized as the most unprofessional unit among all US intelligence agencies.
            The number of failures that happened in this unit in recent years was not found anywhere else.
            The "debriefing" in this once-elite unit took up Congress. The results of internal investigations were shocking. The most “vivid” failure of security specialists was the incident last year, when a previously convicted armed man managed to drive with Obama in the same elevator.
            In 2013, the guards took the word for a man who claimed to be a member of the US Congress and allowed him to literally walk his arm out to Barack Obama at a ceremony.
            A few months later there was a scandal in the president’s residence - two people “leaked” to the White House, bypassing the checkpoint. But the most glaring facts were the rapporteurs at the White House in 2011.
            Most likely, the unit is waiting for a thorough "purge". The “techie” in the protection of Obama and his associates last year was marked by the removal from service of the director of the service, Julia Pearson, who gave way to the “Obama man” Joseph Clancy.
            The massive layoffs in the Secret Service last happened in 2012, after an incident in the Colombian city of Cartagena before Obama arrived at the summit. 11 Secret Service agents, along with soldiers and officers from the Navy, from the delegation of the head of the White House made a drunk in a strip club brawl. The insane first-person security guards then managed to bring more than 20 “women of easy virtue” to a hotel reserved for the administration of the White House. Then 11 intelligence agents were fired, the rest escaped with official penalties. "

          Yes. All their screams are just a fight for the “voices” of the type.
          And if the fool Hillary Clitoris becomes the US condom.

          This can no longer be compared to the fact that the monkey did not file during the bananas.
          And the rest does not care. It will be the same. Yes, even Vladyka Sith with dill. will become the president of chubby mattresses. And let them swell for free. let them swell. laughing

        With Clinton, he seems to be going in half, equally. Even if we assume that he will overlap with the Republicans with what is called Clinton, then the "electoral system" will surely drain the voices in a number of states from minor candidates in favor of Clinton. So, they say so. Democracy is her mother, a system of checks and balances. And now their “drive belts” are ripped off there in many places, both in the CIA, and in the State Department, and in this secret service. Clinton wants to fix her stockings.

      Actually, it’s too early to write them off, but there is slackness and sloppiness, how will they restore “prestige”? Yes, they ask for more money, probably for prostitutes.

      Nothing new should be expected from the new president. In the USA there is a line of the state along which it develops and it does not depend much on the president, the president can only slightly adjust the course. This is the plus of the USA that it doesn’t matter who comes to power, the state will go its course anyway. But in the countries of the USSR, with the advent of a new president, the state can radically change course, take Ukraine as tight as you, then it allies with Russia, then with the EU, and it turns out ...

        Good point. It would be the country's stability, with a weak government, but a well-functioning state.

        I would also like to stop the cyclical nature of crises. Kakueto stability.

    Of course, in a crisis, they can’t cope with their direct responsibility, and counterfeiters were not only hanged on them (anyway, our FSO would also deal with fake banknotes). Moreover, the number of secret service is about 4400 people

    From Wikipedia:
    The main tasks of the US Secret Service are to prevent counterfeiting of American money, debentures, other valuable documents, as well as the protection of the president, vice president, their immediate relatives, other senior officials, former presidents and their spouses, presidential candidates and vice presidents, representatives foreign states during their visits. The secret service also investigates various types of financial fraud, identity theft and helps to investigate some internal crimes.

    In ancient Rome, the Praetorians (guard of the emperor) often appointed the emperor themselves. Once they simply sold the emperor’s place for auction money.

      Identity is not bad. That is, the Praetorians maintained their collective morality. Not allowing egoists to power. Those. those who do not know how to share.

    Dear forum users, it seems to me that this organizational conclusion was not casual. Well, first of all, the question arises - was the analysis conducted on the unsatisfactory work of the special services made during the period of the Obama’s rule? If it’s only to protect Obama, then it’s worth considering, but is Obama being merged like Kennedy to create a precedent for unleashing a global conflict? If these scandals with his guards just to show what a negative in his reign without military consequences, then this is all right with the aim of downgrading - like see what kind of president-loser is his guard. But if this is like an invitation to terrorists of all stripes to eliminate the framework and announce something serious, then it becomes a little uncomfortable.
