    The Secret Service Needs $8 Million to Build a Practice White House

    ............Josephy P. Clancy, the head of the Secret Service, asked the House Appropriations Committee today for the money to build the big phony house at the Secret Service's 500-acre training center in Beltsville, MD, about 20 miles from the real thing.

    "Right now, we train on a parking lot, basically," Mr. Clancy said. "We put up a makeshift fence and walk off the distance between the fence at the White House and the actual house itself. We don't have the bushes, we don't have the fountains, we don't get a realistic look at the White House."

    Practicing at a realistic replica should help the Secret Service be better prepared to fend of White House intruders. And snipers. And stray drones..........

    If the Secret Service really wants to fine tune its ability to protect President Obama, wouldn't it make more sense to construct a practice golf course? :dontknow:

    They can't even build a fence that people can't climb over
