Is The White House Safe?

Should President Obama trust the Secret Service to keep him safe?

This question arises again after a Washington Post report says supervisors mishandled a 2011 shooting incident at the White House.

Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig told "New Day" Monday it took the Secret Service four days to discover there had been a shooting.

The Secret Service has responded to these claims, but another investigative reporter, Ronald Kessler, asserts the group needs a change in management.

And he says President Obama and his family are not safe at the White House.

Kessler emphasizes the danger saying "the agents I talked to say it’s a miracle that there has not been an assassination so far."

Watch the interview above and let us know what you think

Five Things to Know for Your New Day – Monday, September 29, 2014

An ISIS deserter talks about life in the terror militia, the man accused of a beheading in Oklahoma faces charges today, and what were 11-year-olds doing in a Miami nightclub caught in gunfire?

It's Monday and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day.

1. ISIS DEFECTOR
I quit: When airstrikes slammed ISIS in Syria, a window of opportunity opened for one of their fighters, who’d had enough. Abu Omar slipped across the border into Turkey. He’s hunkering down, because, now, he’s got a target on his back. He tells CNN in an exclusive interview with Arwa Damon that ISIS leans heavily on foreign fighters; he met lots of guys from France in the militia. He says they’ve got major pull in the group, and they’re even more heinously cruel than Syrian ISIS militants.

More on this story.
