Last January we reported that it had been discovered that the department of Homeland Security had lost, “Hundreds of DHS badges, guns, cell phones lost or stolen since 2012″. Today we learn it was not just DHS.
“Secret Service Can’t Find Tons Of Its Guns, Phones, Badges And Cars”
Cars? And the Secret Service regularly carries select-fire Uzis that should never get into the hands of bad people. It is impossible for me to believe that these things were not stolen and sold either by Secret Service agents or people who had access to it all. Regardless of where the stuff went the losses, both by DHS and the SS, shows us that there is no effective leadership in either agency.
The Secret Service is headed by Joseph Clancy.
Homeland Security, of course, is headed by Jeh Johnson.
This all happened during the Obama administration. We now have a new administration coming in to the White House. What should the new President do about this level of mismanagement? Should the Directors be held personally responsible for these losses?
Secret Service agents reported 11,780 lost or stolen assets between fiscal years 2001 and 2016, according to the data Judicial Watch received, although the agency didn’t distinguish between lost and stolen items.
A total of 121 “weapons/pistols” were lost or stolen from 2001 through 2016, including 69 in 2002 alone. The Secret Service also reported 736 cell phones, 571 badges and six vehicles as lost or stolen in that same period.”
