Commentary: I’ll Say it Again: Don’t Bother Charging the Salahis — Move On

WASHINGTON — I’ll say it again, as I did recently: the feds shouldn’t waste their time trying to figure out whether to criminally charge the famous White House party crashers,  Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

It’s a waste of time, and a distraction from the task at hand: plugging up all the security gaps that allowed the couple to attend the Nov. 24 state dinner.

We need to move on, correct what needs correcting. Besides, charging the Barbie Doll couple with something like criminal trespassing will only look petty.  (To add to the embarrassment, we now learn that a third person, a D.C. man named Carlos Allen,  made it into the party without being on the official guest list.)

In any event, if  the Salahis must be punished, I suggest they be charged with making the Secret Service and White House look foolish. In the court of public opinion, they’ve already been found guilty of that charge.

Besides, we should be grateful it was the harmless-publicity seeking Salahis, not an underwear bomber, who pointed out the flaws in the White House security.
