The Secret Service demoted four execs this week, but according to the New York Times, the agency still hasn't gotten around to securing the White House fence, which the Department of Homeland Security has deemed "one of the biggest dangers to the president's security."
No action has been taken to improve the fence, which the Department of Homeland Security report says is one of the biggest dangers to the president's security.
The report, which was released on Dec. 18, said that the fence must be "changed as soon as possible." It said that the barrier should be several feet higher and that its horizontal bars should be replaced with vertical ones to make it more difficult to climb.
So what has the agency done to address embarrassing mistakes like this and this and this and this and this? Demote four assistant directors while praising the resulting "change" and "fresh perspectives." Some of the employees are, however, "expected to remain at the Secret Service."
