Carlos Allen is the Black Man Who Crashed Through White House Security (video)


I imagine that it will be quite awhile before President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama host a state dinner at their crib again. The one they held in November 2008 turned out to be a security nightmare.

It turns out that Carlos Allen, who runs an event business called Hush Galleria in the nation's capital, is the third person not on the guest list who managed to enter the event.




You can see in this video how Mr. Allen entered the event separately from the uninvited couple, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, who captured headlines for penetrating security at the Nov. 24 event to honor Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife.

The subject traveled from a local hotel, where the official Indian delegation was staying, and arrived at the dinner with the group, which was under the responsibility of the Department of State,” the agency said in a statement. “This individual went through all required security measures along with the rest of the official delegation at the hotel, and boarded a bus/van with the delegation guests en route to the White House.”
Apparently this uninvited guest didn't get as far as the reality television wannabes. He was not on the dinner guest list, however, it appears that he didn't get to meet the president or first lady.

I just hope that this guy who breached White House security doesn't turn out to be a relative of the Christmas bomber or a recent visitor to Yemen.

What are your thoughts on this new information?

These "security breaches" are extremely dangerous, and seem a little suspect to me. Hmmm...I don't remember anyone getting near Bush like that.

All this proves is what "we' ALREADY KNOW... the "secret service" is not really trying to protect this President! Hell, rappers and athletes have tighter security! There is no way in hell 3 unauthorized people should have gotten on the grounds let alone up close and personal like that. Mr President better tap into his "black" side and find out where Jay Z gets his security from...

Bohemian Hippie Chick - On the other hand, wasn't anybody really interested in getting up close and personal with GW Bush :)

Regina - It does seem suspect on a number of levels. I 'spose that a number of security companies have forwarded their prospectus to the White House for consideration. I wonder if Jay Z has been to the White House? I seem to remember that Russell Simmons support Republican Michael Steele when he ran for US Senate a few years ago ... so I doubt that Obama's team will be getting with Russell anytime soon...

I don't get it. Back in the day, there was better security at House Parties. Could it be that they aren't really trying to protect the President?

Corve & Henry - Fortunately, nobody was hurt by these three gate-crashers. Hopefully, the Secret Service will get busy...
