White House Locked Down After Woman Jumps Fence

Updated 7:03 p.m.
By Michael D. Shear
The White House was put into a brief lockdown Tuesday afternoon when a woman jumped the Northeast fence, officials said.

The woman jumped the fence at 3:17 p.m. and was taken into custody, according to a White House spokesman. The woman was not injured, officials said, and was transferred to the Washington metropolitan police.

The president was in the White House at the time of the incident, which briefly required White House personnel to remain in the building. Such lockdowns are not uncommon at the White House, usually the result of an unknown package nearby.

Reporters in the building were not allowed to leave their White House briefing area for more than an hour, the Associated Press reported.

The woman was not identified.

>P.S. Obama is not the "President" if he is not a "natural born" U.S. citizen -- regardless of whether he was in the White House at the time of the incident or not.

As President Obama was born in the State of Hawaii, he is indeed a US resident, and is legally the PRESIDENT OF THE US.

Deal with it.

It does finally show some sort of Intelligence!

No "problem" per se, except why someone born and raised in Peoria, Illinois would not take English nor a Government class in school?

So, again, you are falsely claiming that I DON'T wish there were "principled-liberals" on these threads for actual discussion of issues and policy? Whatever.

FairlingtonBlade:

Are you still around?

It might help if you actually believed in the concept of "principled liberal."

All you want is an audience for your pathologies, jaked. Anyone who reads two WaPo blog posts figures that out pretty quickly.

Yes, disproving your false claims ("he always leaves out a few key words") is like shooting fish in a barrel. I wish there were some more principled-liberals on these threads for actual discussion of issues and policy.

I've never been dishonest about my party affiliation and always answered any question about it (by those who answer my questions. of course):

Here in California, everyone is welcome to join the only such "Independent" party qualified for the ballot:

http://www.aipca.org/

Some more of our party platform:

"We Acknowledge the Creator’s Gracious Gifts

The American Independent Party gratefully acknowledges God as the Creator of all and appeals to Him for help in protecting all He has graciously given us. With all these gifts comes the right to use them justly. Hence all such rights are the gifts of God as affirmed in our Declaration of Independence. These include the right to life and liberty.

Declaration of Independence Rights are God-Given

All rights are unalienable in that none have a right to take them unjustly. Liberty includes the pursuit of happiness, which is the possession and exercise of virtue. Liberty includes the right to use and claim as an individual possession any unclaimed thing received from the hand of God, in or upon or above the Earth. This right to any possession includes its entire use, that is, its exchange, control, protection, and entire disposition. And the first and greatest of these possessions is our life."

...

"The Protection of Life, and the Duties and Rights of Families

We believe in protecting all human life however weak, defenseless, or disheartened; we endorse the family as the essential bulwark of liberty, compassion, responsibility, and industry; and declare the family's right and responsibility to nurture, discipline, and educate its children. We maintain that all humans are persons from the beginning of their biological development and especially deserve our love and nurture when they are weakest and most dependent."

Thank you for proving I am not a GOP nut at least ; )

jaked is a registered member of the American Independent Party (he always leaves out a few key words). Alan Keyes, presidential candidate. You have to wear sun glasses to their conventions or the light reflecting off all those tin foil hats will blind you.

I am registered INDEPENDENT. But, assuming I am one of the "nuts" you are referring to, please explain how me asking "alaskan2 whether he /she thinks that Nixon was innocent equates to "waaah waaah waaah". Thanks in advance.

All I hear is "waaah waaah waaah" from the GOP nuts who still frequent this site with no other purpose than bash Obama. You guys are losers.

plummerjones:

They are also under the illusion that Obama cannot lose the election in 2012 (they've never heard of one-term wonders like "Carter" or "Bush41", I guess).

alaskan2:

You are free to "discount" whatever you like, of course, but simply because the GOP didn't expose something (that Obama is trying his hardest to hide) does not mean it is untrue. As an example from the flip side, Richard Nixon hid his involvement in the Watergate break-in until the tapes were released -- the Democrats never "exposed" him -- do you also think that Nixon was innocent?

Actually feliciawilson-atta Obama is president of our beloved country for the next four years. (The same beloved country he is detroying by the way) You see, in America presidents serve 4 year terms. I guess you did not take elementary government or English for that matter. "Ain't" is not a word.

JakeD- I cannot believe I'm still seeing, after all this time, anyone still bringing up that old birth certificate garbage. If there was any truth to any of the claims made by people I am now forced to assume are mentally challenged or wearing tin foil hats, the right would have been all over it. I now know I can totally discount any posts by you as you are not part of the real life discussion taking place on these pages.

I'm not crying about pResident Obama.

JakeD, cry all you want, for the rest of your life, our cherished President Obama is president of our beloved country for the next 8 years. Ain't no one listening to you buddy.

That wasn't a woman, it was jaked in his bathrobe looking for Obama's long form birth certificate.

P.S. Obama is not the "President" if he is not a "natural born" U.S. citizen -- regardless of whether he was in the White House at the time of the incident or not.

And, a tree was blown over by a storm on the White House grounds. Interesting times we find ourselves living in.
