back to article US Secret Service tabletop training toytown goes virtual

You know the US Secret Service? Famously it isn't actually the secret service of the USA; that's the CIA.

So much for hi-tech

Nice to see the US Security people using up to date software. Still looks like they're running XP to me.

This is where a title would be if I put one in

My favourite is still the ATF. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Heard a comedian once say that all they have to do is make it the ATFLW - IE add 'Loose Women' and you've got yourself a real party.
