Look up FPS Russian on youtube..he has a drone with a light smg on it, have no doubt its very possible, the technology is there..even in the hobby industry. With UHF or it might be VHF radios you can fly for miles via a camera and gps.
I actually find it somewhat amusing with the way the U.S. govt uses drones to do bad things to its citizens.

That seems to be the common suspect, CGI. Could be.

What type of weapon that could be plastered on one of these tiny drones would be a "threat potential" anyways?
A baggie of anthrax or other biological agent crashing into the window of the White House or flown through the open front door in the summer.

When I was a kid we used to call drones "RC Toys". Maybe if we carried on calling them toys then people wouldn't piss in their pants when theres a report of one being found on a lawn.
Questions like what if it had a camera or explosives are ridiculous. You sound like little girls. Strap your head back on and pay attention. You're being manipulated. If it was a true threat, you wouldn't hear about it
Actually most drones/RC Toys that fly these days DO have camera's, or have the optional equipment to mount them as you can see from the thousands of YT videos loaded with cameras from a drone.
You sound like an uninformed poster...strap your head back on and maybe research a bit before making statement than can easily be proven false.

WASHINGTON, DC --
A device, possibly an unmanned aerial drone, was found on the White House grounds during the middle of the night while President Barack Obama and the first lady were in India, but his spokesman said Monday that it posed no threat.
No threat, really? That's some crazy hubris right there.
What about the potential of a small explosive device or chemical/biological weapons? Can these small drones even be detected and defended against?
At this point one has to wonder how useful/relevant the Secret Service is anymore, given all of their numerous scandals and now this.
