Posted on 11/27/2009 9:16:22 PM PST by BAW
President Barack Obama has ordered a full review into how a Virginia couple managed to make their way into the White House for last week's state dinner without an invitation, even getting so far as to meet the president in the official receiving line, according to a White House official.
Three days after a pair of Virginia socialites and reality TV wannabes crashed the administration's first state dinner, the White House acknowledged for the first time Friday that they met Obama himself at the event raising even more questions about whether the breach could have posed a security risk.
The men and women of the Secret Service put their lives on the line everyday to protect us, they are heroes and they have the full confidence of the President of United States, said White House spokesman Nick Shapiro in a statement issued Friday evening. The White House asked the United States Secret Service to do a full review and they are doing that. The United States Secret Service said they made a mistake and they are taking action to identify exactly what happened and they will take the appropriate measures pending the results of their investigation.
The White House and the U.S. Secret Service offered few details about how Tareq and Michaele Salahi, managed to end up in the receiving line.

No escaping the clear implications of his actions in these cases.
Will I be visited by the Secret Service if I admit that I really don’t care?
I have to admit I am impressed, it took him only a few days to make up his mind on this, meanwhile he continues to dither on that war we're supposed to be fighting.
He seems to be a leader in this instant, but wobbles on his commitment to out troops. Wuss.
Yeah, the ‘Bamsters on the case! Judas Priest this f’ing idiot sure has his priorities straight, doesn’t he? God help me I hate his guts.
Imposter guests meet the imposter President!
Can the Secret Service do a full review of ALL the imposters who attended the state dinner?
Bush’s fault, no doubt.
The Obamao organization better get this straightened out. The very last thing we need now is the martyrdom of Obamao. Biden is an idiot who will follow down Obamao’s course of destruction, and nothing could stand in his way with the nation deifying Obamao. Keep Obamao alive and showing the world the catastrophic failures, manipulations and lies of the American left.
i have to say im suspicious of the media’s interest in this case. frankly, it’s not a big deal. they were screened like everyone else in the metal detector. so why does the media care? it’s almost like a red herring. trying to divert attention away from other stuff. obama is most likely not to blame here (or so the media hopes). so therefore it’s ok to make it look like they’re being critical of the president by investigating this.
i think the media were so thoroughly jealous that some non-elites got into the party so easily that they’re lashing out at everybody involved because they didnt receive an invite and these two nobodys did.
just my thoughts.
With Obama constantly going here and there, the protective details must be working massive overtime. Wherever he goes, advance teams have to secure and capsulize the area where he will be. I would imagine that will contribute to some of the problem.
Oh, but that was just about some of our service people being killed by a Muslim terrorist.
THIS we have to nail down ASAP!
Everything about this administration seems dysfunctional.
America’s First Affirmative Action Amateur Hour Administration
Just be done with it and fire the Social Secretary and the the Secret Service agents that let these people in without credentials.
Barack Obama is a media whore who surrounds himself with media whores. The woman who got in was being filmed for an upcoming reality tv show. I would not be surprised if someone in the White House was in cahoots with these folks to help them out with their show. They can’t help themselves.
lmao— i just noticed the little acorns on his collar
