'Let's pretend' security ~ By Barbara Simpson

Commentary from WorldNetDaily
Barbara Simpson By Barbara Simpson Posted: November 30, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Here's a plot for a book or script: Terrorists want to take out the top echelon of leaders of a major nation in hopes of weakening the resolve of the people and overthrowing the government. The terrorists want access to an event where the only goal is "mix and meet," political massaging and good PR. Media covering the event are primed for feel-good soft news. There's no visible threat and no expected trouble. Protocol is in place and all goes smoothly – until, it doesn't. The whole event is undone. Terrorists get in and do the evil deed. They wipe out those targeted people and many others as well. The media are stupefied because they believed the administration PR that there really isn't a war on terrorism. The fact is no one in authority is allowed to use the word "terrorism," which raises images of ostriches with their heads in the sand. People "believe" there are no terrorist enemies. But that isn't true, and the worst happens. Sounds like a blockbuster hit because it sounds like it could happen. Did it happen? Well, sort of. There were no terrorists, there was no attack, no one was injured and no one died. But, it was a high security event: the first state dinner hosted by Barack Obama, the new U.S. president. In attendance were all the top leaders of the country, the most powerful nation on Earth. The guest of honor was the prime minister of India and other officials and the rest of the guest list was upward of 300 top political, media and other figures. But – and it's a big but – the event was crashed by two people who got past what is supposed to be the best security in the world. They actually got into the White House! Michaele and Tareq Salahi sneaked into the dinner under false pretenses, getting past Secret Service security checks. They were not on the guest list yet were admitted. To make it worse, no one from the White House social office was there to double-check the list as is traditionally done. It was something that couldn't happen – but did. READ FULL STORY >
