Two Secret Service agents are cut from Obama’s detail after alleged misconduct - The Washington Post

Secret Service dude (Presidential detail this time) allegedly tried to B&E into a woman's hotel room, because he left a bullet in there.

There also seems to be sexual harassment involved.


Why the sudden inability to keep shit secret?

I think you're starting to see the administration lose control to a degree of the message they're sending to the population. As such, individuals are jumping off the ship betting that it's going down. Basically, CYA and then some. Of course, I'm purely speculating here, so don't roast me over the coals for not really being able to back it up.

I'm not sure Obama has direct control over the NSA. I envision more of a proxy type command and control to keep Obama from catching the blame for mini scandal after mini scandal. As long as he can throw his hands up in the air and say "I didn't know" Obama will never have to answer directly to the population for the misdeeds of his administration. I believe this is by design (and can you blame him? I mean yes, but only if you take him for his word on the campaign trail). Is he aware of what's going on? Yes. But you'll never be able to prove it without commandeering the NSA and taking the whole thing public.

We pay handsomely for government. It should be entertaining.

It's all unraveling as more people lose respect for Obama, IMO, we're set to see some pretty wild shit over the next few years. Buckle your seatbelts!

Wait. The Secret Service (must resist temptation to abbreviate that "SS"), have lost respect for Obama, so they've started leaving bullets lying around?

So, I'm saying more people are willing to talk to the press about the Obama's admin's dirt.
