It turns out the White House party crashers got to meet Pres. Obama last Tuesday night at the state dinner. Michaele and Tareq Salahi got to shake hands with the President while in the receiving line.
We'll show you the White House photo of the meet-and-greet tonight on 360°.
Meanwhile, there's a confession from the Secret Service.
The Director of the agency, Mark Sullivan, released this statement tonight:
"The Secret Service is deeply concerned and embarrassed by the circumstances surrounding the State Dinner on Tuesday, November 24.
The preliminary findings of our internal investigation have determined established protocols were not followed at an initial checkpoint, verifying that two individuals were on the guest list.
Although these individuals went through magnetometers and other levels of screening, they should have been prohibited from entering the event entirely. That failing is ours.
The Secret Service safely processed more than 1.2 million visitors last year to the White House complex. In the last several years, the agency has successfully protected more than 10,000 sites for the President, Vice President and other Secret Service protectees, screening more than 7 million people through magnetometers at campaign related events, with more than 1 million during the Inauguration alone.
Even with these successes, we need to be right 100% of the time. While we have protocols in place to address these situations, we must ensure that they are followed each and every time.
As our investigation continues, appropriate measures have been taken to ensure this is not repeated.
The men and women of the U.S. Secret Service are committed to providing the highest level of security for those we are charged to protect, and we will do whatever is necessary to accomplish this mission."
We'll have the fallout and new details on the case.
We're also following developments in Tiger Woods' SUV accident.
Police said just moments ago at a news conference that the pro golfer hit a fire hydrant and a tree when leaving his Florida home early this morning and was "in and out of consciousness" and had cuts to his lips when officers arrived on the scene .
Police also said Woods' wife used a golf club to knock out the rear window and remove him from the vehicle.
Gary Tuchman is on the scene and will have more for us tonight on 360°.
