Hanging around Friday at CPAC was Ricky Jones, a counterterrorism expert who planned the "take down" of the White House in new movie "Olympus Has Fallen," which screened at the conservative conference Friday night. "The plausibility of the White House having an attack at some point, it could happen," Jones told Yeas & Nays. "Would it be successful? I don't know -- I doubt it."

One of Jones' biggest contributions to the film was helping create a bad guy Secret Service agent (we won't say which one it is) who assists the North Korean terrorists. "It would never happen because they are such dedicated men and women. But for the film, for the kind of intelligence they needed to have leaked to take the White House, that would be the only way they could do it for the film," Jones said.
