Obama White House changes policies to block future gate-crashers

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2009/12/obama-white-house-changes-policies-to-block-future-gate-crashers/1

There has been new events happen as a result of the White House “party crashing” i blogged about yesterday. The White House will now have staff at all chekcpoints for all future events. The White House deputy chief of staff released a statement saying that the secret service is ultimately responsible for White House security however the White House staff did not do everything they could to help the officers the night of the “crashing”.

Does anyone else think that it is a little odd that the Secret Service couldnt not prevent two people from crashing a White House party. Arent they suppose to be the “best of the best”. The entire purpose of the Secret Service is to make sure the President of the United States is safe at all times.  I do not feel that the White House staff should have to take extra precausions to make up for the short comings of the Secret Service.

Am i the only one who thinks that it is crazy that the Secret Service needs help? Why doesnt the White House just employ more Secret Service agents. They are the ones that are suppose to be specially trained.

Please let me know your opinions on the matter.

    i cant believe that they are even considering pressing charges i dont see what laws that the couple violated. I hope they leave them alone and i think its interesting how low the security level must have been for this event that the president and other prominent members are attending.

    I have to agree, the secret service is at fault for these two people to crash the White House party. If these two people crash this party, they did it so easy that the secret service look bad of doing their job. I think that is more that we don’t really know, because they crash that party so easy. The true is that we all humans in anybody can make mistakes, even the secret service is control by humans. If we see it in another way is good that the people who went inside were only having fun, not a terrorist organization who was trying to killed the president.

    This is definitely the secret services’ fault. If they are still talking about this then they either need to hire more people or put them in training again because this couple got in the White House so easily. What if they were terrorists in disguise. Our president and the other guests who were there would be dead because the secret services didn’t do their job.

    I have to be in agreement on your argument, this is the secret services’ fault that these two people were able to get in and crash the party. Someone was not doing there job, had this been a killer our president and first lady and many others could have been injured or even dead right now. Security needs to buckle down around the White House. I understand the notion that all humans make mistakes, but to make a mistake such as this, is just horrible.
