Washington Man Accused of Threatening Obama: A man accused of threatening to kill President Barack Obama appeared in federal court in Seattle Wednesday. KUOW's Liz Jones has more.

Just How Secret Is The Secret Service? The United States Secret Service was established on the day of Lincoln's assassination in 1865 — but not for the reasons you might think. You can still see them standing behind the president and foreign dignitaries, but behind the scenes they're also in charge of combating counterfeit currency and fighting cybercrime. David Hyde talks to the head of Seattle's Secret Service field office.


Jim Helminski is the special agent in charge of the Seattle's Secret Service field office.
