A shocking report by TMZ has surfaced on Feb. 25 that First Lady Michelle Obama was lacking the full security clearance during her Academy Awards appearance. The First Lady was the only person to open and view the Oscars envelope to announce that “Argo” won Best Picture Oscar for 2013.
Any packages or envelopes are usually scrutinized by White House Secret Service agents for clearance first. However, we learned this was not the case when the envelope was officially opened for the first time, without full security clearance.
Did security agents clear anyone before the envelope was handed to the president's wife?
According to TMZ, “it’s practically inconceivable that any package – even a high-profile Oscar envelope – would reach the First Lady without being thoroughly vetted first.”
The Academy did defend the act by reassuring that the PricewaterhouseCoopers accounting firm were the only ones who had knowledge of the winner contained in the envelope.
However, was the auditing firm enough security to ensure the envelope was safe and who was watching PricewaterhouseCoopers in preparing the confidential letter before it reached President Obama’s wife?
Would you be concerned over this alleged breach of security for First Lady Michelle Obama or is this something to cringe about?
