Uninvited Guests Crash White House Dinner  | read this item

Do you know Tareq and Michaele Salahi? Well, neither does the White House. But they were able to penetrate layers of security by the Secret Service and attend US President Barack Obama’s White House state dinner in honor of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The couple originally comes from northern Virginia and was not on the official guest list but managed to get inside and was detected only after they could not find any seats in the South Lawn tent where the dinner was held.

U.S. Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan says, “An initial finding has identified one of our checkpoints that did not follow proper procedures.”

The couple were described as aspiring reality-TV stars and polo-playing socialites. Now, a dozen pictures posted on Facebook appear to show the couple posing with dinner guests including Vice President Joe Biden, Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty, CBS News anchor Katie Couric, and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
