The U.S. Secret Service has cut corners in ways that may have jeopardized the safety of President Obama, according to a new book by a veteran Washington journalist and author, Ron Kessler. The book, “In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect,” details instances of “laxness in how they protect” Obama, according to a source at Random House, which will officially release the book Aug. 4.
While the agents assigned to protect Obama and other principals are described as dedicated and valiant, Kessler asserts that in recent years the management of the agency “has betrayed its mission by cutting corners, risking the assassination of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and their families,” the publisher says. One current agent tells the author: “It’s a miracle we have not had a successful assassination.”
