The Secret Service is looking into its own security procedures after determining that a Virginia couple, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, managed to slip into Tuesday night’s state dinner at the White House even though they were not on the guest list, agency spokesman Ed Donovan said.
One of the many photos from the dinner posted on Michaele Salahi’s Facebook page shows the couple with a smiling Vice President Joe Biden. In other photos, they appear alone or together with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty, CBS News anchor Katie Couric, Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., and three Marines in their dress blues.
Someone pulled a real boner! Joe looks happy and oblivious. How many people try to crash such events. Probably fairly rare so one wonders if assumptions were made to pass Tareq and the missus through when the names did not match…I mean what was the likelihood they were not real… More PC ineptitude, not wishing to offend Tareq? Looks like Ol’ Lunchpail Joe has the missus cinched up pretty good there. Surprised the couple hadn’t already wrangled a plane ride over N.Y. in Air Force One.
