I think there is something very strange about this incident and the way it's being handled. Reminds me of the Air Force One flyover of NYC. something
outrageous happens. explanation is "someone screwed up". somebody is fired or in this case three people put on leave. internal investigation that
will say somebody screwed up and that it will never happen again. end of story. how many times is the white house going to be allowed to use this lame
1. the couple got in without an invitation
2. they claim they were invited, that nobody would behave so badly, that this has "destroyed their lives", but can't produce an invitation.
did one or more secret service agents think that just this once an invitation wasn't required? I find that very hard to believe. even a pretty blond
in a perky red dress would be stopped at the perimeter. it's their JOB. don't they turn away people all day long who don't have permission to
enter? why on earth would they suddenly let someone through.
did someone from the white house give the OK to let them through, but now doesn't want to admit it? most probable this is the case. apparently the
social secretary knows something about it because she is being "protected" from testifying because of the separation of powers. we are supposed to
believe that it's a national security matter that she talk about why she chose not to have staff present at the dinner? oh please. had such a staff
person been present, that person would now be taking the fall for this.
as usual gibbs is dismissing this as unimportant. and the president and first lady are "angered" by the incident, just like they were about the
something doesn't add up.
can't help but go back to this picture. some people will say it's a coincidence, but these reality tv folk run in the same circles.
June 2005 photo from Polo Contacts Worldwide shows the Salahis with Obama at a pre-event to America’s Polo Cup. Others in the photo include American
Idol’s Randy Jackson and members of the rock group Black Eyed Peas.
"Tareq Salahi served on the board of the American Task Force for Palestine, where Columbia University Professor Khalidi served as vice president. The
American Power blog noticed both Salahi’s and Khalidi’s names have been scrubbed from the Task Force website, although Salahi’s bio still comes
up on a Google cache search of the site."
obama is a long time friend of khalid also. was that the connection that got them waved through? did jarrett or some other of obama's chicago cronies
know these people through khalidi?
we of course will never know either what happened or why it happened. it's not a big deal, after all. yes it's the principle of the thing but if
there is one thing the obama administration is good at, it's brushing aside as unimportant the things they refuse to talk about.
