'Thousands of bees' swarm White House

A swarm of "thousands of bees" gathered outside the White House this morning.

The small army of insects hovered as President Barack Obama tried to leave the White House to play basketball at Fort McNair, according to a pool report.

By the time the president returned at noon, the bees were apparently nowhere in sight.
