FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A former Secret Service agent known for leaping aboard President John F. Kennedy’s limousine after he was shot in Dallas says the agency responsible for the commander in chief’s safety needs to change its attitude.

Former agent Clint Hill tells KFGO-AM that he’s disappointed with the recent security breaches involving the White House and President Barack Obama. Hill is a native of Larimore, North Dakota.

Hill says agents need to “change their attitude, be more observant and pay more attention to detail.”

On Sept. 19, an intruder with a knife climbed a White House fence ran through the front door, made it all the way into the mansion’s storied East Room and near the doors to the Green Room before being apprehended.

Hill says the recent security lapses are “disturbing.”
