It Works The Other Way, Too

Your read this?

The woman who heckled President Barack Obama during his speech at the National Defense University on Thursday gained access to the closed event by saying she was a member of the press, the university said.

Medea Benjamin, the leader of the human rights activist group Code Pink, stood and shouted several times as the president gave his national security speech focused on drone use and closing down the Guantanamo detention center.

Officials at the university, located at Fort McNair in Washington, D.C., later said Benjamin was able to get into the invite-only speech by saying she was with the news media. It was unclear which media outlet she told them she was with.

“The individual who continued to attempt to interrupt the president’s speech at the National Defense University was given access via the list of media attendees expected,” the university said in a statement.

The "vultures".  More details.
