Bush's Africa Trip Has Security Breach

A stowaway flew from South Africa to Uganda on the press plane accompanying President Bush on his visit to Africa and entered the compound where Bush met Uganda’s president, U.S. officials said. U.S. SECRET SERVICE agents conducted a security sweep on the plane after the unidentified stowaway was detained and removed from the compound on the shores of Lake Victoria where Bush met President Yoweri Museveni Friday. “He did not have a credential. He did not have a passport. He has nothing,” said White House travel office official Curtis Jablonka. He said the chartered United Airlines Boeing 747 carrying about 130 members of the press, White House staff and Secret Service agents had been “thoroughly swept.” The Secret Service typically provides security oversight for the delegation. “There was no indication the stowaway came within sight of President Bush,” Jablonka added.
