Jenna Bush Calls Her Dad On Ellen

9 posts in this topic

Did anyone see Ellen this week when she had Jenna Bush call her dad on the show? Apparently some kid figured out Bush's number based on what was shown.

That is pretty cool. But, yeah i don't think somebody could get the number from that, at least what was on youtube. There wasn't any DTMF, and Jena dialed so fast she was giving thoughtphreaker a run for his money.

I have no way of confirming this, but I heard that there was more then one version of the video, one of which contained the touchtones.

As faceman was saying, though, I heard Strom was taking a lot of trips to DC lately :P .

I wonder if this is related? Although the article seemed to indicate that the person involved just called the main whitehaus switchboard, which is pretty easy to get ahold of (http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/ lists the number as 202-456-1414 ) .

Teen caller tricks White House

A teen-ager says he convinced the White House he was Iceland's president and managed to schedule a call with George W. Bush but was found out before he got to talk to the U.S. president.

"My call was transferred around a few times until I got hold of Bush's secretary and managed to book a call meeting with Bush the following Monday evening," Vifill Atlason, 16, told Reuters.

The teen-ager posed as Icelandic President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson when he made the call on Dec 1.

Icelandic police turned up at his door two days later -- the day of the planned call -- and took him in for questioning.

"They told me the CIA had called the National Commissioner of the Icelandic police and asked if the police could try and find out where I received that phone number from," said Atlason.

The teen-ager said he was unable to recall where he discovered the telephone number for the White House.

"I know I've had it on my phone card for at least 4 years now and that an Icelandic friend gave it to me, but I don't remember who," he said.

At a White House news conference Monday, Bush spokeswoman Dana Perino said her understanding was that Atlason had called a public line "that anybody can call," according to a transcript.

Local police confirmed the National Security Unit at the national police headquarters had asked them to bring Atlason in.

Jon Bjartmarz, Chief Superintendent at Iceland's national police headquarters, said Icelandic police had not spoken to their U.S. counterparts about the matter. He declined to say how police were tipped off about Atlason's call.

"As far as we're concerned, there will not be any further investigation, and I don't know if the American government is taking any action because of this," he said.

He could of possibly have access to some equipment on the same network that they broadcast from or could possibly have access to a live satelite stream of the show. I've heard rumors of people being able to adjust satellites in their backyard and get raw NBC broadcasts and stuff like that. Dont know if its true or not.

Man. The CIA sure are wasting their time if they have to ask questions like that. Maybe they could check the whitehouse website? ffs.
