I'VE BLOGGED REPEATEDLY on the Secret Service's problems, but this takes the cake:
DETROIT –– A Secret Service agent has admitted he scrawled anti-Muslim statements on a prayer calendar during the home search of a man charged with smuggling bogus checks into the United States, authorities said Thursday.
Not only is that a sorry-ass thing to do in general, but the damage it does to relations with the American Muslim community -- who for everyone's sake had better be on the right side -- is just incalculable. This guy shouldn't just be fired. He should be prosecuted, and given the maximum sentence they can manage.
I keep saying that homeland security is a joke. But this isn't even funny.
