Mike Gillette said Clancy called him Monday and said he was very sorry, and that the agency did not handle the situation well. A spokeswoman for the Secret Service confirmed that Clancy made the call.
According to Gillette, Clancy offered to come to one of the groups events to apologize in person and offered to have some of the children come to one of the agencys training facilities in Maryland for a tour.
In a statement e-mailed late Sunday, Brian Leary, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said the closures on Pennsylvania Avenue and Lafayette Square were put into place based on standard [Secret Service] protocols prior to protectee movements in the vicinity of the White House Complex.

Too late now. The group had a permit and it meant nothing to the Secret Service?
Yeah, Obama probably had some muslim "protectee" visiting with his mockup of a clock bomb. Obama cares about kids... if they're muslim.
If the Ahole walks out a certain door in the White House, people must be cleared away from the street and park facing that side. The national security cult, and the presidency bubble cult continues.
DC has around 39 different law enforcement agencies which do not appear to communicate with each other.
The president is personally shameworthy for his imperial insistence upon absolute control of the citizenry as it pertains to his movements.
When terminally ill children are substantially inconvenienced by the pro forma actions of a presidential detail we have lost any reason to respect that office or its occupant.
Do people have to be a jerk to get a government job? I know a low IQ is required by my personal interactions with such people.
Attacker of children with cancer and veterans wanting to visit their war memorials.
The Federal government has become like a feudal kingdom, with each agency being its own sovereign duchy. They only owe nominal allegiance to the central government, each one recognizes no constraint on its power, and each agency has its own "army" of armed police to enforce its wishes within its jurisdiction (and often outside of it as well).
Oh, and lest we peasants forget, each duchy does not recognize any constraints on its power over the people, and refuses to be accountable to them.
Just the usual responses: apologize, accept responsibility, mea culpa, then business as usual.
The phrase “accept responsibility” has ceased to have any meaning at all.
The SS lets Bambi get on an elevator with an armed felon, but they chase a group of parents and their sick children from Lafayette Square where they had a permit to be.
The puke probably stepped out to have a cigarette.
They probably moved the group so they wouldn't see Bambi trying to find a door to get back in.
The children and their chaperones should be invited to the WH. Anything less is meaningless as an apology.
High ranking government officials should conform to the Japanese acceptance of responsibility and kill themselves.
I think the problem is that this group asked to have the White House lit up in gold to acknowledge their fight against cancer.
Obama and Valerie just wouldn’t do that.
Obama and Valerie Jarrett can light up the White House in rainbow colors for homosexuals, but they chase children with cancer away.
This proves their priorities.
Actually, he was leaving the White House to go address the Congressional Black Caucus.
No consequence = no change.
I wouldn’t subject them to the white hut to be subjected to those that jerked them off.
