WASHINGTON (AP) — The attention-hungry couple that crashed the Obama administration’s first state dinner admitted to a friendly Pentagon official that they went without a confirmed invitation — just in case they got approved at the last minute.
Tareq and Michaele Salahi claimed a dead cell phone battery prevented them from hearing a voicemail earlier that day advising them they did not make the guest list.
What a brilliant strategy! Show up “just in case” and use the “dead cell phone battery” defense.
Imagine where you could go and who you might meet. Who knows, you might get on TV or even in (gasp) Java!
