FORMER SECRET SERVICE AGENT: ‘Swarm attack’ by ‘armed drones’ pose ‘grave threat’ to Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As if nuclear threats by North Korea and hurricanes weren’t enough for President Trump to worry about, armed drones intended to take him out have now been added to the list.

According to Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, new high-tech weapons including armed drones, plastic guns made on 3-D printers and sophisticated IEDs are being utilized by terrorists in an effort to launch an attack on their “ultimate prize.”

“This threat is grave,” Bongino said while promoting his new book, “Protecting the President”.

“Distractions from the sky, whether planes or drones, create additional security complications for an obvious reason: Secret Service agents and officers cannot fly,” he warns in the book, which calls for changes in the way the agency protects the president.

Bongino said terrorists have looked at drones “for a long time,” and that “the real threat comes from the more spectacular swarm attacks.”

He also raised concerns about computer generated guns that can slip through traditional metal detectors and the rise of online terrorist resources.

“The compounded effects of what I’d refer to as terrorism MOOCs — massive, open, online courses — describing, in detail how to commit these types of attacks and the growing commercial availability of drones, and 3-D printing devices, the terrorists have an advantage that can’t be countered with traditional thinking,” Bongino said.

Bongino added that, unless changes are quickly made by the Secret Service in regard to how they think and operate, the president is in a place of grave danger.

“Sticking with a ‘that’s how we’ve always done it’ approach to the threat of a massive, coordinated, assault on the White House is a guaranteed strategy for failure on a grand scale in this new environment,” he said.

Calls to the Secret Service for statement on Bongino’s statements were responded to with a “no comment”.
