Sex Tourism: Unanswered Questions In Secret Service Prostitution Scandal
Friends of Ours ^ | 04/16/12 | Friends of Ours

Posted on 04/16/2012 4:40:00 AM PDT by AtlasStalled

The alleged sexcapades by several Secret Service agents while in Colombia in service to President Barack Obama may not just be an embarassment for their country; rather, the objects of their affections may have been exploited against their will, and the investigation into the debaucherous debacle necessarily must include the circumstances by which the involved women found themselves in the meat market.

Legal prostitution in Colombia and other countries has generated a thriving sex tourism industry, and in meeting supply for the demand many women find themselves enslaved in the trade. For example, in Spain where prostitution is legal an estimated ninety percent of the 200,000 to 400,000 working girls in the country are trafficked against their will by crime groups including those from Colombia as reported by Suzanne Daley for The New York Times: "advocates and police officials say that most of the women are controlled by illegal networks — they are modern-day slaves." No doubt the situation is equally gloom, if not more so, for women in Colombia.

Just because prostitution is legal doesn't mean it's consensual.

Moreover, the age of consent is only fourteen in Colombia, and the unfortunate involvement of even younger children in the country's sex trade is pervasive. The Secret Service agents "had their pick of young girls with long, black and brown hair" at the Pley Club in Cartagena according to club employees as reported by the Daily News.

Hopefully, all the working girls at issue chose their profession of their own volition and are at least 18-years-old, but these are among the questions which must be convincingly answered in the ongoing investigation. After all, the Obama Administration insists it cares about women.

Actually, it is also what the Libertarians want America to be.
They are all over legalising prostitution and lowering or removing age of consent laws.

Some unanswered questions:

Were any of the Secret Service ‘white Negroids’ ?

Were they protecting the bamster’s hotel with baseball bats?

Was the prostitute demanding payment standing her ground, or was she just fast and furious?

You mean the White House has a war against ‘working’ women?

Is the homey homo in chief really really mad yet?

And sadly, the same appears to be true in Utah, where the GOP has been bought off by polygamist money, whose leaders have their pick of underage “celestial wives”.

Thanks goodness for conservative prosecutors and juries in Texas.

The premise of this post may well be true which is of course
sad but in addition this scandal may be an intentional propaganda stunt to distract from somthing else. They could cover up something like this if they wanted to, and I have watched those secret service guys up close and I don’t believe they are the type that would indulge in something like this. We should not jump to the conclusion about this that they want us to. When Clinton was President would you have expected something like this to be reported?

Unless the Cartagina 12 are mere Obama thugs dressed up as Secret Service Agents,this “scandal” stinks of a fascist president purging the presidential guard detail of those who do not subscribe to his rascist Utopia politics of tyranny.

Or was it someting they said to the Firstist Ladiest?

( Keep your hands off my wife.)

Is Obama not preparing his presidential guard for the racial /ethnic violence he is about to unleash on America?

And why should wise Black Folk,Asians , Hispanics and White Folk be cowed? They all need to be prepared to stand to, just like Zimmerman did.

Oh yes, the Martin/Zimmerman fiasco is meant to chill free speech, freedom of assembly, and neghborhood watches ALL across America.(Nobody should be shooting at looters or rioters trespassing illegally into citizen homes.....its historic justice for the alleged sins of our forefathers, Black Liberation fascist theology?)

The only person standing up now is Joe Arpaio.In Arizona the coming rascist mob will be met with lead pursuant to the 2nd amendment.

Travis, I have learned from long experience to doubt EVERY story from the MSM. I have been an insider in a number of incidents. The MSM NEVER gets the story straight. However, they are totally obedient to the progressive cause.

Did any SS agent even solicit a single hooker? Who knows. The entire story could have been manufactured. Look what they orchestrated to attack Herman Cain.

My hypothesis is that the Obama campaign is purging a bunch of agents who are not “reliable” and who might talk or leak damaging material in the upcoming election. Most of them are probably married, so the blackmail is doubly effective.

The MSM is a huge, lying propaganda machine. Every Freeper needs to understand this.

Forgot to mention that the MSM is now making the story more salacious by bringing up under-age-sex-slave hookers when there is NO evidence that any were involved.

Our economic success allows us moral sensibilities which aren’t realistic in some third world countries.

If our economy were in their position, we would eventually be doing the same thing.

That’s true, but I wouldn’t rule it out either, not if they found the girls at a brothel (The Pley Pen). Girls who can “present” well and are more or less free sometimes work the ritzy hotels. They can’t be teenyboppers, they must look classy enough and old enough to be “guests.”

But selecting them at a brothel, now you are talking organized crime, and often, sex slavery.

My first thought was the guy who didn’t pay the 50 pesos didn’t even realize she was a hooker in his room, until she asked for payment. Until then, I thought, the moron believed he was just so charming and dashing that the gorgeous babe at the bar just wanted to jump his bones for fun.

Let’s stop and ask ourselves: “For whom were these prostitutes being procured?”. Perhaps not for the Secret Service, but for members of 0bama’s entourage. And maybe all the prostitutes weren’t female - hey Barry deserves his fun, right?

I knew the facts in two large stories about 30 years ago. The MSM totally screwed up the story. They went for sensationalism and the facts were largely mis presented. I know it is much worse now. Their saying is “If it bleeds it leads.”

Example: In the 1996 election I personally knocked on the doors of 200 registered voters in Bob Dornan’s congressional district. I discovered that 50% DID NOT EXIST!

I gave interviews to the LA Times and OC Register. I offered to take them to voters registered to high school playgrounds and the homes of people who had lived at the same place for 20+ years yet now had an extra family of “phantom” voters living there. Nope. Not a word about the massive vote fraud that took Bob out.

Both newspapers kept playing up the illegal alien voter angle to try and make Dornan, who marched with Dr. King for civil rights, look like a racist. BTW, we obtained over 700 affidavits from illegals who said they were induced to vote and regretted it.

Since “ - - - sexcapades by several Secret Service agents while in - - - “ Columbia have been discovered due to refusal to pay a mere 47 USD, it is important for Congress to as the following question:

What have been the “ - - - sexcapades by several Secret Service agents while in - - - “ ALL OF THE COUNTRIES that Obama has visited in the last 3 + years?

BTW, a follow up question might be: “What % of these prostitutes were spies for foreign governments?”

Of all the politicians I have ever met, B-1 Bob was probably the most decent. It was a sad day when Dems took him via massive voter fraud. What was even more sad is that the GOP-e stood by and let it happen without so much as a peep of protest.

There was a story some time back (may have been a couple of years by now, if not more), where Rush was en route to a vacation in the West Indies, when a airport security person ransacked his luggage, found some Viagra, and made sure it got a lot of publicity in the media.

I prefer ideologues to professional pols.

Ideologues never change their minds because of polling data and contributions!

That said, Bob could sometimes be an abrasive loose cannon. That is part of why the pubbies did not try to rescue him.

I thought that he's probably already purged all those who aren't "reliable" and this is just the way his replacements typically act.

The MSM is a huge, lying propaganda machine.

That should have been painfully obvious after the '92 election campaign, when they enthusiastically trumpeted the lie of "Worst Economy In 50 Years", when it clearly had been far worse a mere 12 years earlier during the dying days of the Carter administration.

Interesting find this morning: my nephew looked up information concerning the poltical affiliation of all the SS agents caught in this embroglio. They are all Republican or conservative in some way, according to the site he visited.

After announcing his discovery I advised him to go back and burn a copy. It had been scrubbed.

Why are we finding out the name, photo and interview of the supposed hooker?

Who is supporting her now?

How did she get to the brothel/place in question in the first place?

How did she know to go there at that time?

Now a new generation of SS is going to understand the importance of sexual self control, too. Free sex (sex free of morals and love) ain’t free; especially for those special agents protecting the President’s life. The liberal culture is poison for character.

Later, I posted this:

Here is my theory about the media tempest over the SS agents:

No major MSM story is manufactured without a good reason.

If SS agents hired hookers, such things have probably been going on for decades. However, it would not surprise me if 90% of the allegations were invented out of thin air.

I think we are seeing an attack on the Secret Service and the purging of politically unreliable agents. Perhaps Obama wants HIS people in the SS.

A more sinister possibility is that they are intentionally impairing the SS and providing an excuse when the SS fails. What I am suggesting is that, perhaps, the SS agents protecting the Republican nominee or someone else will fail to stop an assassin.

We are dealing with a Maladministration from Chicago where pols are tied to organized crime and card-carrying communists. We already have the graft and corruption. The next step for a desperate Obama is whacking the opposition.

Anybody else think so?
