I think it was certainly an embarrassment, and perhaps have caused some individuals, specifically opponents, to question whether or not this indicates anything about the secuirty of the country. With that being said, it is certainly good that nothing bad happened to the President, Vice-President or any of the other dignataries. Also, there is a silver lining in the unfortunate event though, that is, the security procedures must be re-evaluated because a lapse in security measures CANNOT EVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!
Nevertheless, it is almost troubling that it took place anyway because it could have been anyone else- who knows?, and the outcome could've been quite different.
