A lack of institutional memory.
Reader comment on: Secret Service Budget

My contention is at least a part of the Secret Service mess is that it has been over 30 years since Reagan's near assassination and as a result, they have gone somewhat soft. Partly this is shown by the front door of the White House not being locked. There must be a command post at the White House as well as surveillance cameras. One could lock the door and add a buzzer so that the command post could unlock the door on demand, or on a schedule as needed for dignitaries. It seems to me that the unlocked door is like the issues with NASA and the space shuttle, and other organizations when their mission gets hung up in organizational dynamics. It should be noted that this is the outcome of any large organization, not just a government one.
