    Bullet Hit White House Window, Secret Service Confirms




    WASHINGTON – The Secret Service has found a bullet that smashed a glass window at the White House before being stopped by special anti-ballistic glass shielding the building's interior, WRC-TV reported late Tuesday night.It was discovered Tuesday morning, said a Secret Service official who added a second bullet was found outside the building.
    The Secret Service has been investigating a shooting that occurred near the White House on Friday, but sources told the station they could not yet confirm that the newly discovered bullets are linked to that incident.
    An AK-47-style rifle was recovered from an abandoned car Friday night after Secret Service officers heard shots being fired between two vehicles on Constitution Avenue, about half a mile from the White House, shortly after 9:00pm.
    U.S. Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser said Sunday officers had obtained an arrest warrant for 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega, on a felony charge of carrying a dangerous weapon, in connection with the incident.

    Sounds like a stray round from a gang shootout.

    Sounds to me like somebody was shootin' at somebody...but doubt it was at the White House. (Just from what I'm reading here...)

    I honestly don't care much about why. That is the job of the SS. I'm glad to hear the WH remains secure, however.

    Wow - so it would be possible for someone to stand on a street corner and pick him off like that . . . that's really disturbing. Having a firearm in the vicinity of the president's abode should not be that simple or unconcerned for. They didn't even know about it - what are we paying them to do? Jack off all night?

    I can't sweep this under the rug - it just high-lights the egregious oversights that go on in this country: board an airplane you get your anus swabbed. Shoot up DC? No problem - no one's WATCHING out for ****.

    Without becoming Gestapo-like there's no way the Secret Service can spot everything. That's the reason that the White House is up-armored the way it is.

    Of all the places to be Gestapo DC is that place. It should, in fact, be the most secure area in this nation.

    It's DC, home of the once appropriately named Washington Bullets.

    Find the dude and hang him. This can not be tolerated.

    Yes, but we're talking about the White House, not Southeast DC.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
