That Ladies and Gentlemen, is how close “the Party Crashers” got to the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of India (left of Obama), in what looks like the Blue Room.  One is grateful they’re just publicity hounds and not assassins.

ABC’s Jake Tapper has the story from the White House, which is not commenting on the breakdown in security in what is supposed to be one of the world’s most secure parimeters.

The White House would not comment on the meeting between the reality-tv seeking couple and the leader of the free world.  White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said the Secret Service has the confidence of the President.

“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,” Shapiro said.

Indeed, tonight in a written statement Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan said his agency is “concerned and embarrassed” for allowing the Virginia couple to slip through their security.

“The preliminary findings of our internal investigation have determined established protocols were not followed at an initial checkpoint, verifying that two individuals were on the guest list,” Sullivan said, “Although these individuals went through magnetometers and other levels of screening, they should have been prohibited from entering the event entirely. That failing is ours.”

Yeah someone is going to be leaving the POTUS detail in the Secret Service and will be protecting ‘a high-value asset’ at a base in South Dakota or Alaska soon.
