Security lapse puts Obama at risk

This is scary. At an Obama campaign rally in Dallas yesterday, the Secret Service ordered Dallas police to stop screening people for weapons while they were still arriving at the rally.

Why would the Secret Service do such a stupid, risky thing? Dallas Deputy Police Chief T.W. Lawrence said the intention was to speed up seating of the thousands who came to hear Obama speak.

Lawrence said he was concerned about the large number of people being let in without being screened, but that the crowd seemed "friendly."

Yeah, friendly. Just like the people who came to see John F. Kennedy in Dallas back in 1963.
