Secret Service blames Palin for Obama death threats

The UK's Telegraph reports:

"Sarah Palin's attacks on Barack Obama's patriotism provoked a spike in death threats against the future president, Secret Service agents revealed during the final weeks of the campaign."

"The attacks provoked a near lynch mob atmosphere at her rallies, with supporters yelling "terrorist" and "kill him" until the McCain campaign ordered her to tone down the rhetoric."

The Secret Service should step up its vigilance against threats on Obama. The election does not thwart threat possibilities.
