    CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS, including aerospace/defense contractors, must be held to address a critical issue that transcends politics and we will never properly advance until it happens: The 75+yr ongoing EXTRATERRESTRIAL cover-up. How can we truly believe anything our elected officials say?

    Bush came into Hobby in Houston one time and I pulled over got out of my truck and ran into the Median to wave. A bunch of heads with weapons came popping out of the vehicles. I stopped dead, threw my hands up and yelled Don't Shoot Me! He drove by and I never did get to wave. When I worked in D.C. I got to know an agent through a friend. Wound tight with a stick up his butt, even during his off hours. No sense of humor.

  • Lendorien

    This was an outstanding video. Informative and well done. One of the better ones Vanity Fair has done.

  • Arjalineck

    If the president shoots himself in the head, do they have to do that as well

  • confusedindividual

    He spoke about negotiations between White House staff and the Secret Service over plans involving the President and/or other VIP’s and finding an acceptable balance between presentation and security. I wonder how often an agreement is never reached and what is decided in those situations. Does the Secret Service operate autonomously in spite of the President or do they have to obey the President?

    I imagine standing there, staring at the President, is a really bad way to protect the President. Yet that's what Secret service does in so many of these shows.

    This was actually very good. Something most Americans could watch, learn and enjoy about the best protection money can buy. But only 1.7 views. If it was some blowhard espousing some conspiracy theory, it would have 10M views by now. This shows how some of us prioritize our day.

      Secret service isn't composed of a president's select buddies and compatriots. It's a single organization with many agents that serve for years and decades irrespective of who is in office.
