Not-So-Secret Service

“I don’t get why the secret service is called ‘secret service’. To me, standing behind the president all the time to be seen by lots of people doesn’t seem like a secret”
“Well…”
“I mean, come on.  They all wear the same suits, same sunglasses, same earpieces… they are nowhere near secretive”
“Well they are not secretive.  Their missions are”
“Whatever, I think they should be named something else.  Say ‘President’s Guards’ or something.  That’s at least what our country does rightly”
“In general, they are doing something secretive.  Thus the secret service”
“Okay, what do those guys do.  Tell me.”
“Protect the president”
“You know that?  I thought it was supposed to be a secret mission!”
“Baby, I gotta pee.”

And so he made a beeline to the toilet, and I was there, now thinking about how those secret service guys should act, if they wanna pee during their guarding session.

All this because of watching Vantage Point.  Brilliant storytelling, very simple story, a bit boring in the middle but a hell lot of action.

Loved it!

  1. Watched the movie, felt the same way about the movie, and wondered the same thing about the “secret service” !! Okay here’s an idea, let’s do a double movie date for… umm whatever good movie is coming up for the summer!

  2. the “secret” is… the guys who stand behind the president are not the actual “secret service” they are fooling the people and lead them to think that they are the secret service… when the actual secret service men are…. well, we don’t know where, ‘cos it’s a “secret” hehehe.

  3. Teez: LET’S! it’s about time to meet off-line. been far too long since the last time! 😀

    bebe: ok, i’ll take that answer for the moment. although i’m not sure it’s right. HAHAHAAKHK!

  4. they are called secret service because while they’re standing behind the president, they are doing ‘secret things’ other than shielding the president.

    Wait, they are shielding ? so why they are behind not in the front ? hmmm another secret
