Latest intruder who manages to bypass White House security is … a toddler

So easy a child can do it. “It” in the previous sentence is eluding the many layers of security in place to keep invaders out of the building that provides a home and workplace for the president of the United States. Security at the White House has admittedly been pretty lackluster lately, but Sunday it was breached by a 4-year-old, who managed to bypass a security fence and get onto the property.

The Washington Post reported that security guards noticed the young intruder and rushed to the area with their weapons drawn to see what was going on.

No one was exactly sure how the child got past security, but it appeared he somehow got through a secured area by crawling under a bike rack on Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House gate. The child was later reunited with the parents and was not injured during the incident.

This is just the latest in a series of physical security breaches at the White House. In September last year, a man jumped over the White House fence and pushed his way past a female Secret Service agent, making his way in to the building, before being taken down by another Secret Service agent.

In January, a drunk government spy crashed a drone into the White House lawn causing massive concern about the danger of similar drones being used to attack the White House.

In early March, two high-level Secret Service agents were arrested after they drunkenly plowed their car into security barricades at the White House after a long night of drinking and driving.

Last October, Bob Schieffer of CBS News raised the rather astonishing question of whether the lapses were a reflection of racism, that President Obama wasn’t being as well looked after as he might if he were white.
