WASHINGTON — The White House was put under a security lockdown Saturday morning by the Secret Service after a bomb-sniffing dog alerted its handlers to examine a car not far from the presidential residence and offices, a spokesman for the agency said.

Members of the press working in the briefing room, which sits between the White House residence and the West Wing, were locked in the building after hearing a loud noise. The incident was reported by David McCumber of Hearst Newspapers, who is the on-duty pool reporter at the White House.

”As pool and other press gathered outside near the South Lawn for the departure of President Obama and the First Family on the way to Selma, Ala., for a historic 50th anniversary march, a loud noise was hea

White House Locked Down After Alert From Bomb-Sniffing Dog

Just saw this! Is Obama in a "sniper's eye" again, or is this just another false alert?

The dog is hard of hearing. They told him to sniff bombs not bones.

I can't see any bombs getting into the White house through their security myself.

So... what was the loud noise?
Someone farted in front of a hot dog cart and it caught fire?
Trying to think of a connection between sniffer dog and loud noise preceding lockdown.

Glad to hear this was nothing dangerous.

I hope the president's security is on highest alert today as he heads to Selma. I've been thinking about that today. Unfortunately, there are some people in this country who would just LOVE to make a statement about his plans for the day...

Could this be some kind of training exercise. Because of the embarrassment of failing to stop that man entering the White House not so long ago. Keeping the Secret Service at the top of their game is always a priority.

A coworker mentioned to me yesterday that they were surprised that an attempt on his life has not been made already.

Well, since the lockdown is done, let us hope that the Secret Service was being overzealous... IOW, doing their job, and it was nothing.

I think it's probable that security is incredibly tight today, and given that there have been some very dangerous and humiliating lapses in security over the last year it's logical they would be on the ball.

Seems to me that it was nothing, but the security services acted with reasonable response given the circumstances.

I would imagine that if a bee buzzed too close to Obama today someone would annihilate it within seconds.

Which is perhaps more justification for US agencies suggesting that home grown extremism from the right is more of a threat than ISIS.

I thought that noise might have been a sinkhole that opened up and swallowed Obama, but then I am sure it would have spit him right back up after getting a taste of a felon and a traitor.

Paranoia at its best haha..

The dog can be trained, but it also can hear and sense more then humans. A lot of things could alert a dog, not just a bomb

Anything could get through to The White House. Probably even a bomb. Wouldnt doubt it. We have had drones, streakers and hell even a small plane crashed into it.

You know you can dislike the posistion and not the man without race even coming into it right? personally i do not discriminate. i d liek to see all of DC reach 10 million degrees in 30 seconds to water the tree of liberty once again.

ALso according to SCIENCE race is a man made thing. biological race dont actually exist. Were all humans. time to start acting like it.

The following post contains trace amounts of reason, reader discretion is advised.


Politics aside - if such a thing is humanly possible when it comes to any mention of President Obama, the security services will take measures to safeguard his protection even if after the fact those measures were seen as unnecessary. This is due in part to the adage, better safe than sorry, especially when suspected threat is in geographic proximity to the White House.
