Secret Service personnel were more red faced than ever last night as 9/11 Mastermind and Al Qeda leader Osama bin Laden managed to sneak into a White House party, mingle with guests and even have his picture taken with the president without being noticed.
"We admit, this was an egregious error on our part", said Secret Service spokesperson Sheila Wentz. "I can assure you, steps have been taken to find the person responsible and they will be punished!"
It appears bin Laden simply walked into the function and he was mistaken for Saudi Arabian diplomat Al Faisal Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud and was not asked for identification.
The Secret Service employee who allowed bin Laden to pass stated, "all those Arab guys look alike! They all have beards and turbans! It was an honest mistake!"
The Secret Service has been under fire for allowing Michaele and Tareq Salahi to attend a formal White House dinner uninvited and, just this past weekend, for not only allowing tourists Harvey and Paula Darden to have breakfast at the White House but insisted the couple attend the breakfast even though they had no credentials and were simple sightseers.
"I told them I don't belong there", Harvey told the news media. "But they forced me to have breakfast with the president!"
Bin Laden left the party and is still being sought by CIA and Secret Service agents.
