We did not crash Obama party, say Salahis


Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the Virginia socialites best known for their polo events, were splashed in the global media after they were able to attend the gala, even though they were not on the official guest list.
 “We were invited, not crashers,” said Michaele, speaking to NBC’s ‘Today Show’ programme.

“There isn’t anyone that would have the audacity or the poor behaviour to do that... certainly not us,” she said.
Appearing on the national broadcast with his wife, Tareq said the row over their attendance at the Tuesday dinner has been a “most devastating” experience.
Salahi told the channel there’s more to their side of the story — an explanation that would exonerate them from allegations of misconduct in the breach of White House security.

Michaele and her husband Tareq attended the dinner at the highly secured White House on November 24 allegedly “uninvited” and managed to shake hands with Barack Obama, with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh looking on.
The denial by the couple, who also are reported to be aspiring reality television stars, came as the US Secret Service began a probe to get to the bottom of the breach of several layers of security at the White House event.
