(Washington, DC) — The Secret Service has been extra busy since Barack Obama took office in January. According to a new book by Ronald Kessler titled “In The President’s Secret Service,” Obama receives 30 death threats a day. The number of threats has jumped 400-percent from the three-thousand or so death threats former President George Bush received yearly. The Secret Service investigates every threat. Kessler writes that handling the skyrocketing number of threats has put a burden on the Secret Service. The book reveals that intelligence agents got a tip that members of a Somalia-based Islamist group could try an attack during Obama’s inauguration. On inauguration day, the more than 40-thousand agents, a dozen sniper teams and nearly 100 police, security and military agencies were involved with the Secret Service in keeping the newly-elected president safe.
