What does it say about the judgment of a leader who thinks protesters are threats to his personal security? Given that the Secret Service is kept busy looking for harmless protesters a person who actually wanted to do harm need only disguise himself as one of the faithful. This has parallels with the war on terra. Finding and capturing the real threats is difficult, so let's go after the easy targets instead. It doesn't matter if you really do the job. It only matters if you look like you are doing the job.
