"there are plans for these situations that automatically go into effect".
Sure there are. Without knowing exactly what happened, at a minimum I would expect the following:
STAFFER: "Mr. President, small plane has crossed over the White House restricted airspace. We have scrambled jets to intercept. Congress and the White House is in the process of being evacuated, and the First Lady and the VP have been moved to a protected location. JCS is on top of it and we have elevated the threat level to red.
DUBYA: "Alrighty. Sounds like things are under control. Keep me posted if it turns for the worse while I finish this lap."
STAFFER: "Yes sir. I have a communications officer that will be riding with you."
DUBYA: "Sounds good."
You should quit your day job and become a "Hostile Threat" advisor. God only knows we need more of them
The DU needs to do better instructing you folks
on posting to people who are informed.
You lost, get over it.
President: "AGAIN? How many friggin' times have I told you security guys, DO NOT bother me with this. There are hundreds of incursions per year! You are security, deal with it."
