Skip to comments.Secret Service agent: Clintonís staff rude, Hillary aloof
Posted on 03/08/2012 7:47:30 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
In a breach of tradition, a former U.S. Secret Service agent has self-published a book that savages the Clinton White House staff as arrogant and rude, suggests former first lady Hillary Clinton was aloof and charges that Bill Clinton endangered himself and agents for a totally pointless photo op on the South Korea-North Korea border.
In several anecdotes, former agent Dan Emmett revealed that Clintons young staff had fundamental traits of rudeness and arrogance that teetered on the verge of being dangerous at times. Most of these youngsters were from wealthy families, and many viewed Secret Services agents as the hired help, he writes in Within Armss Length, an autobiography that provides new details of the inner Secret Service.
In one case he told of an unnamed Clinton staffer who challenged a KGB agent during a 1993 presidential visit to Russia as if he were dealing with a Wackenhut security officer in Toledo.

“Clinton staffer who challenged a KGB agent”
Not a bright move.
I have heard about the Clintons’ arrogance and lack of breeding from MANY DC friends who were in a position to know.
we hvae heard for years how rude Hillary was to the people who protected her.
since as a former first lady she still gets SS protection I wonder if she will become more polite
Emmet probably served with Gary Aldrich. I may have read about him in Gary’s book, but it’s been a while and I don’t remember.
I suppose every president could have some details revealed that would be embarrassing, but when it reaches the level of Clinton and company, I think it’s a national security issue if the agents don’t tell all.
This incident on the bridge to North Korea could have caused a massive international incident. The guy was a juvenile jackass, unfit to be president.
Maybe GOMER, as in SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!
They believe they are untouchable, unassailable, and miles above the stupid little people who pay them.
There is no such thing anymore as a “public servant”.
Today, you will never hear anyone say, “I'm just a lowly civil servant. I don't make much money.” as you may in an old black and white movie.
Today, getting a job with the gubbermint is like winning the lottery. Pensions, Unions, Vacations, Conferences and travel expenses, Cars, Gas Cards, the best Health Insurance in the country, the best Dental in the country, free Tuition, and a salary that has been documented to be up 30% higher than a non-government worker doing the same job.
It is not just Hillary. All gubbermint workers assume that they are a part of the “ruling class”. And they are not far off.
There is also the book Unlimited Access by an FBI agent.
Clinton was a Prince compared to the CS we have in the White House now.
My patient attempts to reason were met with childlike emotion born of a past where no one in authority—probably beginning with her parents—had ever said no to her about anything
Pretty much sums up liberalism...
I always thought she was adyke.
Well, harrumph, I’m shocked, just shocked I tell you.
Yeah, that worked out real well...
Pesky renters. Bill/Hill: Up the rent you’re charging Secret Service and perhaps you’ll get some more upscale folks in Chappaqua. On the other hand, drag a hundred dollar bill around and...
I read “Unlimited Access” by Gary Aldrich years ago - basically said the same thing.
Looking their noses down on the rest of us? The 'eat cake' crowd - with attitude? Who woulda thunk it possible they could be insensitive jerks on top of all that? I'm shocked I tell ya...
My cousin did a stint as a white house military guard—whatever the title. Anyway, he said, after he got out of the service, that hillary was an overripe smelly old bitch. They all detested her nasty demeanor. She is an elitist tyrant with a viscereal hatred for underlings, especially in the military and law enforcement.
