They raised the threat level to RED. They should have told the President immediately.

I think you're mistaken.... I don't think it ever reached "RED"

I stand corrected, I just read where it was at "Red" for 8 minutes :-)

Tell "MJY1288".

The small plane was three minutes away. But PLANNING was supposed to take care of this.

It just goes to show you we still have security issues. Nothing wrong with acknowledging it. Just adjust things, and move forward.

But please don't try and justify not telling the President of the united states that an unidentified plane has violated White House protected air space, and is three minutes away, one hour after it happened.

Don't really understand the Barbara Boxer inference.
As for a being a liberal alarmist. Don't think so. But I bet "MJY1288" thinks all things are under control in the southern border with Mexico. INS: "Staffers and teams are in place. Every thing is in order. Only 10 thousand a day are passing undetected. No need to let the President know."

(ha ha. hooo boy.) give me a break.

But despite the "Red" threat level for 8 minutes, there are plans for these situations that automatically go into effect when a plane enters restricted airspace. Radar picked up the aircraft immediately and it was identified immediately as a Cessna 150 at 11:59 AM, by 12:04 the F-16's were on top of the tiny plane and by 12:15 the whole thing was over as far as the security threat was concerned. To fault the Secret Service for not knocking Dubya off his Mountain Bike immediately and informed him of the possible situation, is a bit over reaction in my humble opinion

Do we KNOW that the President was NOT advised immediately?
