The List

The U.S. Secret Service has a very elaborate list of people who pose a threat to the executive branch. Russell Weston, charged in the killing of two U.S. Capitol police officers, was interviewed by the Secret Service two years ago, but, at the time, not deemed enough of a thret to be put on the "active" list. NPR''s Richard Harris looks at what criteria will land you on the list, and how some people slip through the cracks.
