  • White House invader had folding knife

    Boston Herald - 09/21/2014

    A Texas man was armed with a knife when he made it into the White House in an alarming security breach that has put the Secret Service under fire as Islamic State terrorists are calling for attacks on American soil.

    “This was a very serious breach considering the ongoing threat from ISIS. I think that the Secret Service messed up seriously,” said Edith Flynn, professor emeritus at Northeastern University and a terrorism expert. “They’re going to have to have a serious review of their security measures. No one should be able to enter the White House the way this man did, whether they’re not with it mentally or otherwise.”
