Here's the part not included in the [post...says a ;lot for the President.

"Chilean security tried to stop the president's Secret Service from accompanying him," said White House deputy press secretary Claire Buchan. "He told them they were with him and the issue was resolved."

"They are with me...if they don't come in, I don't come in". Issues settled.

Thanks for telling "the rest of the story." I was getting sort of concerned for the President because I thought that maybe he was going to go without his guys.

I was watching him arrive this afternoon and was wondering how the USSS and the chest thumpers in Chile were getting along....always a problem with those peckerwoods.

Secret Service agents are supposed to protect the President and protect in a manner which will not bring embarrassment to the President. That President Bush had to intervene on behalf of the Secret Service agent might say to someone higher up within the ranks of the Secret Service that the agent gave the appearance of not doing his job.

Now I'm wondering if the agent will be reprimanded or blamed in any way by his Secret Service supervisors for any part in the disagreement with the Chilean security. It is my hope that he isn't, but those guys in the Secret Service have very rigid rules and regs to follow.

I am very proud that we reelected an honorable and real man to lead our country. God Bless President Bush.

Thank you for the 'rest of the story'.

Didn't really want to comment until I had all the facts!

If John F'n Kerry were to be confronted like this, I am sure he would have checked with the French before taking any such action.

That was my first thought, why on earth wouldn't they let the President's secret service in? Funny, but when I heard GWB was going there yesterday, I immediately began praying for him.

Next time I'll pray for the secret service, too. :)
