Secret Service Report Details 91 Security Breaches

Via NYTimes -

An internal Secret Service document used for training purposes indicates 91 security breaches since 1980.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan says the agency used the 2003 report to evaluate security procedures and help agents improve their response to breaches. Donovan says that since 2001, there have been 10 security breaches, including an incident last month where a couple was allowed to enter a White House state dinner despite not being on the guest list.

An official who had access to the report said most, but not all of the 91 breaches involved the president. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss the report. The document was first reported in The Washington Post.
