Later, he complained that other pictures he took had been removed. He said: 'Whoa....some1 has got into my phone + taken down my pics off twitter....this is jack Bauer in Washington?!'

He also posted the message: 'My pic of the security was removed quick, rapido, sharpish, fast....they don't play here in DC...I feel like I'm on 24 right now #baffled.'
