So true and, at the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I can't help but wonder what effect from expansion and consolidation with other agencies post-9/11 have had on the efficacy of this agency.

It seems that the more narrow the mission, the better job they might have of doing it well and the more control those closest to the POTUS would have in keeping house.

As it stands, being a part of a network of three letter agencies including HSA, ICE, CIA, et al creates opportunities for, to put it mildly, mischief.

Maybe it's time to return the Secret Service to a state of greater autonomy, as it was before the Patriot Act.
