Barack Obama faces 30 death threats a day, stretching US Secret Service

By Toby Harnden in Washington  (TELEGRAPH)– Since Mr Obama took office, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400 per cent from the 3,000 a year or so under President George W. Bush, according to Ronald Kessler, author of In the President’s Secret Service.
