Website Details How-to Assassinate the President

This crap is getting out of control:

Web site exposes Air Force One defenses

Whenever the president travels, security is a prime consideration. Motorcade routes are kept secret, and premature release of information about a presidential trip aboard one of the twin Air Force One planes can result in the Secret Service canceling a visit.

Thus, the Air Force reacted with alarm last week after The Chronicle told the Secret Service that a government document containing specific information about the anti-missile defenses on Air Force One and detailed interior maps of the two planes -- including the location of Secret Service agents within the planes -- was posted on the Web site of an Air Force base.

The document also shows the location where a terrorist armed with a high-caliber sniper rifle could detonate the tanks that supply oxygen to Air Force One's medical facility.


Information about Air Force One's anti-missile systems is considered particularly sensitive.

"Having information about a targets countermeasures does two things," said Daniel Goure of the Lexington Institute. "It gives you an opportunity to choose a different weapon and to choose a different attack style ... perhaps choosing to launch a salvo attack, or choose a missile that uses an active beam."

"It is tough enough for the Secret Service to do its job without this," said Leon Panetta, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, who now runs a public policy study center at California State University at Monterey Bay. "If I were still chief of staff, I would order the damned site (to) pull it down."


What is it with leaks these days?!?!

You don't just 'happen' to have exact details of all the systems of Air Force One, it's Counter-measures and placement of Secret Service and how a sniper can take it down.

This is from the inside.

First thing the President should do is switch to a different class of Aircraft or arrangement, his security is now compromised with this information out there.

Second thing he should do is find the culprit, get the information of who is leaking what and to who, and then prosecute them SEVERELY. I am talking about mandatory life in prison at the very least.

What this information does is give aid to enemies of the United States and help them to try and assassinate the President.

I think what needs to be done is take a very hard line approach to leakers, because this crap has gotten way out of hand.

Can't stop or bring down the President politically, so you have to try and offer information on how to kill him?

What the hell is this country coming to?
