Author Kessler: Salahi incident "the result of serial shortcomings and corner-cutting" at Secret Service

Ronald Kessler roiled the Secret Service in August with release of his latest book, "In the President's Secret Service." Kessler claimed he had interviewed more than100 former and current agents for his inside-the -White-House account, which was full of gossip and presidential escapades. Now, the Salahi gate crashing of a state dinner has extended Kessler's popularity on the talking-head circuit. Appearing on Fox yesterday, he offered an unflattering appraisal of the Secret Service, saying the Salahi incident was the "result of the serial shortcomings and corner-cutting" at the agency.
