There are a few odd statements. Tareq asks, after all these frantic emails, whether Jones will be attending the festivities. He also writes that their “name was indeed on the list”.

Michele S. Jones just called regarding the state dinner at the White House for Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2009. I need the following information from Tareq and Michaele Salahi immediately so she can submit their information before 5:00pm today.
Need from Tareq and Michaele Salahi:
Full name, Social Security numbers, date of birth, citizenship.
This information is very important to be admitted to the White House for anyone. Please get back to me ASAP.
Michele is waiting a response now.

[To Rosalind Tyner from Tareq]
Hi Team THANK YOU!!! We are very much looking forward to it!
[He evidently emailed the requested info]
Friday 20th 4:37 pm
Hi Michele — thank you!!!
We are really looking forward to it.
I am forwarding this to you just in case as additional back up.
[Additional back up for what?]
Friday 20th, 4:49 pm
Hopefully I can get tickets for the Arrival Ceremony…the State Dinner is completely closed and has been for awhile.
As soon as I know, I will contact you. What is the best way to reach you?
Friday 20th 4:52 pm
Hi Michele. Thank you for this. The best way to reach me is on my cell.
We are honored to take part of the Arrival Ceremony.
Monday 23rd 11am
Hope you had a great weekend.
In preparation for tomorrow, do you know what time we would need to be there, and which entrance we should go through?
Are you attending tomorrows events?
Thank you very much & Cheers
[Why after all these frantic arrangements would he not know if she herself was attending?]
Monday 23rd 4:13 pm
I am still hoping that I can get tickets for the Arrival Ceremony tomorrow. They do have your information in the event that extra tickets become available and will notify me immediately. I still haven’t given up, but it doesn’t seem likely.
I have your number with me in the event I get a call after hours. I am calling Michaele now also, I have been trying to reach out to everyone to get them.

By the way — I know for a fact that these persons are unable to attend the state dinner & the reception portion:
1.) Senator Harry Reid and his wife (they have gone home early for Thanksgiving)
2.) Kuma Gupta and husband (unable to travel to DC tomorrow)
3.) Bob Stevens and his wife (top brass from Lockheed Martin)
[How did he know these folks weren't going to be there?]
Tuesday 24th 8:46 am
Good Morning Tareq,
The arrival ceremony (was scheduled to be outdoors) was canceled due to inclement weather. They are having a very small one inside the WH very limited space. I am still working on tickets for tonight’s dinner. I will call or email as soon as I get word one way or another.
[The crashers didn't attend the dinner. When husband got home, he plugged in his cellphone and heard Jones' message and sent this email. Emphasis added]

You are an Angel!
My cell phone battery died early this evening while we were in DC from our country home, so I just got your message now after driving back out. …But obviously it worked out at the end. … We ended up going to the gate to check in at 6:30pm to just check, in case it got approved since we didn’t know, and our name was indeed on the list! :-) We are very grateful, and God Bless you.
We just got home, and we had a very wonderful evening as you can imagine!
Look forward to seeing you very soon. Say when for dinner — we cant wait to see you and catch up and share memories of a true lifetime.
Tareq & Michaele Salahi

You are most welcome! I here the smile in your e-mail and am delighted that you and Michaele had a wonderful time. :-)
Have an extraordinary Thanksgiving and many blessings to you both!
