From WaPo:

The man who jumped over the White House fence and sprinted through the main floor of the mansion could have gotten even farther had it not been for an off-duty Secret Service agent who was coincidentally in the house and leaving for the night.

The agent who finally tackled Omar Gonzalez had been serving on the security detail for President Obama’s daughters and had just seen the family depart via helicopter minutes earlier. He happened to be walking through the house when chaos broke out and the intruder dashed through the main foyer, according to two people familiar with the incident.

Multiple layers of security fail at the most famous residence in the country?

Agents didn’t fire because they assumed he was unarmed? Assumed he wasn’t wearing explosives, too?

Who’s in charge here?

So the White House is basically being protected by Campus Security.

@lachlan I can't wait for Paul Blart foiled fencejumper's plan.

Thank goodness that guy was around. Still, we’d feel much better if the White House called in the big guns:
