    My point is that there are serious things to be concerned with. This is a secret service screw up. They caught the dude anyway. It's not like he made it to the royal bedroom and asked the president to tuck him in.

    Yes, I know the SS is technically law enforcement, but it's filled with Vets.
    Any indication that the SS is "pissed off"?

    One article said he was armed, I don't remember seeing any detail on that.

I don't give two s***s if it is Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama, or if it was President Romney. They have a duty to protect the president.

    Geez this partisan crap has gotten out of control
    My post wasn't partisan at all but asks the obvious questions. How you take my posts is irrelevant. Oaths are not always followed and are broken - I'm listening to the opening statements right now on the Oversight hearing and the question was brought up - why aren't protocols being followed and why are SS agents afraid to bring up security issues to their supervisors? Those questions are being asked by the ranking member Mr. Cummings. Take your accusations and flush them - not interested. I'm only interested in getting answers as to why this is occurring and why the SS has in the past few months failed so often.

    They intentionally let him in?

    A House hearing! Give me a break. Just fix the damn problem. Congress is all over this public hearing like white on rice. Great teevee ops for this do nothing, gridlocked worthless Congress to show how they "serve" the People. My pink Irish-American butt.

    Fix it and work on issues that should have public attention. Congress is playing the public like a fiddle. All show for November.

    That's the only way anyone can get in unauthorized. The White House is a highly secured area under 'positive control'. Cameras, sniffers, dogs, a dedicated satellite in geo-sinc orbit looking down on the Whitehouse 24/7 with a live feed, snipers, armed SS everywhere....you can't get in unless they let you in.

    Of course they're going to make it look like an accident or oversight so as to avoid a charge of treason, but a lot of things had to 'fail' for someone to jump the wall and get all the way to the East Room on foot.

    There is no indication that he was "intetionally let in, because the SS is pissed". One guard was overpowered, and an alarm box was turned off. White House fence-jumper made it far deeper into building than previously known - The Washington Post

    The only way an intruder can get past the wall without getting shot, is if the SS looks the other way.

    The only way you get into the actual building is if they want you there.
