Julia Pierson, the director of the Secret Service, is resigning in the wake of several security breaches, according to administration officials.

The resignation came less than a day after lawmakers from both parties assailed Ms. Pierson’s leadership and said they feared for the lives of the president and others in the protection of the agency.

A 30-year veteran of the Secret Service, Ms. Pierson was supposed to have been the one to repair the agency’s reputation after scandals that raised questions about a culture that gave rise to incidents involving drinking and prostitution during overseas trips.

But her tenure has been rocked by more serious allegations that her agents and officers have not been performing their primary job competently. Under intense questioning on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Ms. Pierson admitted that those charged with securing the White House failed to follow numerous security protocols, allowing a man armedwith a knife to penetrate deep inside the mansion.

Good. But at the same time, do we really need to advertise it to the whole fucking world that you can jump the fence and get inside the Whitehouse easier than getting a door-buster TV on Black Friday at Wal-Mart? Fucking hell....

We've actually got a < 3" rule here on knives. I carry a 2 5/8" Benchmade fixed blade on a belt sheath- completely legal (unless I decide to break into the whitehouse, then my little knife is the last thing I need to worry about...)

They need to upgrade the selection process.
The first SS at the door was a petite woman who was promptly pushed over.
Minimum fitness standards, such as 6' tall, 190 pounds.
Like the women in combat threads and their much easier standards.
ETA, let the war on women continue.

The detail is only as effective as the administration allows them to be. If the powers-that-be want unobtrusive and friendly then they have to expect some party crashers.
