Barack Obama faces 30 death threats a day, stretching US Secret Service

US President Barack Obama is the target of more than 30 potential death threats a day and is being protected by an increasingly over-stretched and under-resourced Secret Service, according to a new book.

Barack Obama faces revolt over health care overhaul
US President Barack Obama 

Since Mr Obama took office, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400 per cent from the 3,000 a year or so under President George W. Bush, according to Ronald Kessler, author of In the President's Secret Service.

Some threats to Mr Obama, whose Secret Service codename is Renegade, have been publicised, including an alleged plot by white supremacists in Tennessee late last year to rob a gun store, shoot 88 black people, decapitate another 14 and then assassinate the first black president in American history.

Most however, are kept under wraps because the Secret Service fears that revealing details of them would only increase the number of copycat attempts. Although most threats are not credible, each one has to be investigated meticulously.

According to the book, intelligence officials received information that people associated with the Somalia-based Islamist group al-Shabaab might try to disrupt Mr Obama's inauguration in January, when the Secret Service co-ordinated at least 40,000 agents and officers from some 94 police, military and security agencies.

More than a dozen counter-sniper teams were stationed along the inauguration parade route and the criminal records of employees and hotel guests in nearby 

Despite all this, there were glaring loopholes in the security. Kessler describes how more than 100 VIPs and major campaign donors were screened by metal detectors but then walked along a public pavement before boarding "secure" buses and were not checked again.

It could have been relatively simple for an assassin to have mingled with them in order to get close enough to shoot the new president.

After Mr Obama was elected president, his two children Malia, 11, codenamed Radiance, and Sasha, eight, codenamed Rosebud, began receiving Secret Service protection. Mr Obama's wife Michelle is codenamed Renaissance. The Secret Service also started to protect Vice-President Joe Biden's children, grandchildren, and mother.

Instead of bringing in more agents - instantly identifiable because of their bulky suits, worn over bullet-proof jackets, and earpieces - the Secret Service directed agents to work longer hours to cover the extra load and to miss firearms training, physical fitness sessions and tests.

"We have half the number of agents we need, but requests for more agents have fallen on deaf ears at headquarters," a Secret Service agent told Kessler. "Headquarters' mentality has always been, 'You can complete the mission with what you have. You're a U.S.S.S. agent'."

Mr Biden's constant travel, including back to his home state of Delaware-the burden has meant that all agents on his team have ceased training. According to Kessler, however, they fill in forms stating they have "taken and passed all tests, when they have not, creating a dishonest culture".

The Secret Service has increasingly cut corners after it was absorbed by the new Homeland Security Department under Mr Bush. Kessler said that when Mr Biden threw the first pitch at the first Baltimore Orioles game of the 2009 season, the Secret Service did not screen any of the more than 40,000 fans, stunning his agents and the local Secret Service field office.

So, are you upset because someone posted that they are praying for the Ryan family or that they didn't post that they were praying for the Obama family?

Any good christian or any good person that prays to their higher power will also pray for the leaders of this country - whether or not - they agree with the leader. I do not agree with Obama and can't stand his arrogant wife. I do pray that Obama will do what is right for this country DAILY! I do not pray that he will do what I think is right, but what is right. I have never wanted any harm to come to any of his family. I have buried the father of my 2 older children. It is not something I would wish on any one that has young children! The person that you are mocking probably is not either.

 Annoyed at the outright hypocripsy of going out of your way to say you are praying for him and his family..after all he has young children...and people are being mean to him...and lying about him....boo hoo

The things said about and lied about the current POTUS have been at times pure EVIL, VILE BS....and by the VERY SAME ONES boo hooing and asking for Ryan to be spared the same treatment they bestowed and still bestow on the first family.

That's not "Christian", it's political and ugly...

and FTR, it's not about just the poster of that post..not by a long shot...I don't think she posted will ill intent...

I pray for Bush every single night.

I pray for Bush, and Cheney too. I pray that both die suddenly to free us from their neo-Nazi rule.
