Just how weak is presidential security anyways? A small Cessna plane smashed into the White House window when Clinton was in office, 9/11 showed us that the White House was woefully unequipped to handle a plane attack, and now a "potential terrorist" could get this close to Mr. Bush with a car full of stuff? Yikes. Seems LA Times is calling them on how close it was, though the Secret Service is downplaying the matter.

It seems a 29-year-old woman sped past police and Secret Service, and drove her car into the side of the building where President Bush was inside at a rally. Seems close. Of course the Secret Service is saying "He was never in danger," but I think its just spin. Imagine a car bomb driven by a suicide bomber.
