Less Obvious Than You'd Think

One would think that the security gate at the White House would be rather obviously a security gate, but I remember thinking that I could see how a driver would accidentally head through it given the right circumstances. A lot of people come in and out of that place every day, so it can't quite be a fortress even if there are snipers on the roof.
The man arrested Tuesday afternoon when he followed the Obama daughters’ motorcade made a mistake and was simply confused about D.C. roads, the U.S. Secret Service confirmed Wednesday.

An Internal Revenue Service computer worker, the man does not come to downtown Washington often and did not realize he was trailing a Secret Service motorcade.
