An interesting scene at the Republican Convention. Eleven protesters got through security with valid passes to stage a protest right in front of the podium. This in spite of the huge show of security around the convention site.
CNN reported that yesterday a lone protestor, with a valid pass, started climbing into the Vice President's space at the convention.
In the same story, the CNN reporter noted that when she set off a magnetometer, no one checked her.
Is this another indication that the show of security has nothing to do with real security. Is it just to scare Americans?
