The White House was put on lockdown Thursday afternoon after two people decided it might be a good or fun idea to spend the rest of the day being questioned by the Secret Service. The pair reportedly "threw something over the fence surrounding the White House complex — one person from the south side and one from the north," the AP reports. They were both detained while those in the West Wing were told to stay inside, just in case. This is only a guess, but: Benghazi.
This is the second time in three days the White House was frozen due to a security breach. On Tuesday, a "brilliant but absentminded" IT specialist followed a motorcade carrying President Obama's daughters past a security checkpoint, because he was unfamiliar with the roads, he said. Maybe John Boehner can get to the bottom of what sounds like a cover-up.
