Intruder Gains Front Lawn of White House
AP ^ | April 9, 2006 | NEDRA PICKLER

Posted on 04/09/2006 2:43:41 PM PDT by West Coast Conservative

A screaming intruder made it onto the front lawn of the White House Sunday while President Bush was at home before being apprehended by Secret Service officers.

Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren described the man as "someone who has come to our attention in the past as a fence jumper."

The bearded man, wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt that said "God Bless America," jumped the fence outside the White House and ran across the north lawn while repeatedly yelling, "I am a victim of terrorism!"

Members of the Secret Service emergency response team, including one holding a barking dog, chased the man with their guns drawn and surrounded him near the row of cameras set up for television stand-ups.

"I have intelligence information for the president," he said, waving his arms in the air. "I'm not afraid of you," he screamed at the officers who were ordering him to the ground with guns drawn.

The man eventually kneeled on the ground and was taken into custody shortly before 4 p.m.

Someone should tell him that the position of intel leaker has already been taken...

I wonder.......................

What if this guy had been an illegal mexican..............................................

Would the SS have reacted the same way?

If so, perhaps this is the correct approach? yes?

Our president should made aware of this..................

Maybe the SS should be dispatched to protect our border?


One additional thought.......................

There's a fence surrounding the WH right?

Shouldn't the border states get the same protection?

If it was Jack Bauer, he would have vaulted the fence and been in the Oval Office before the Secret Service could have cleared leather!

Years ago, I saw a spider outside my home. So I started screaming at it, "I am not afraid of you!"

I sure showed that spider, yes I did.

Reminds me of a couple of movies. No one would believe them or they were afraid to trust anyone but the president.

He wasn't protesting. Wouldn't it be interesting if he indeed had information. He could have overheard something.
I wonder what one of us would do if we overheard something and no one believed us.

Maybe too much "24" on the brain. I KNOW what Jack would do!!

It is possible though.

Thanks for proving that no thread can escape from being turned into an immigration thread.

More likely he would've had that blonde chick get on her laptop and redeploy the SS to the Planet Zod first.

Okay, who is the joker that let Al Gore out of his cage?

Jack Bauer doesn't miss. If he didn't hit you it's because he was shooting at another terrorist twelve miles away.

But only to wound. Jack wants the distant terrorist held for interrogation.
