Posted on 04/13/2012 8:04:16 PM PDT by kristinn
Up to a dozen Secret Service agents in Colombia for President Barack Obamas trip there have been relieved of their duties amid allegations of misconduct.
The Secret Service did not detail the accusations but said they did not affect security for the president, who landed in the country Friday for a weekend at the Summit of the Americas.
The Associated Press reported that the allegations involved prostitutes. The actions happened before the presidents arrival on Friday, the AP reported, citing unnamed sources.
There have been allegations of misconduct made against Secret Service personnel in Cartagena, Colombia prior to the Presidents trip. Because of this, those personnel are being relieved of their assignments, returned to their place of duty, and are being replaced by other Secret Service personnel, the Secret Service said in the statement.
The Secret Service takes all allegations of misconduct seriously. This entire matter has been turned over to our Office of Professional Responsibility, which serves as the agencys internal affairs component, the agency said. These personnel changes will not affect the comprehensive security plan that has been prepared in advance of the Presidents trip.

I was thinking basically the same thing...everything Obama touches turns to $hit.
Sounds like a good way for Obama to get his
picked people in place.
These Secret Service agents better be careful. They may all die in a plane crash or something. Like that SEAL team.
I’m reading Matt’s “blue book” right now...and that was THE first thought that came to mind.
Obama administration’s motto “party like a rock star!”
The Secret Service, like the FBi used to be an admirable organization.
Now just more excessive, often politically motivated, government dead weight, taking up space, and soaking up taxpayer money, until their pensions kick in.
I’d bet the SS could be cut by 50% without affecting essential security issues.
Yep... that fish that is the fedgov is pretty much rotted all the way through
Thanks kristinn for posting this.
Let’s see, the President is an ex-cokehead, he’s in Columbia....hmmmmm.
I think that the story is sheite and that your post makes sense to me. Scary.
...everything Obama touches turns to $hit.
What is “Matt’s blue book?”
Meh —they’re dirtying these guys up cuz the bad guys know they SAW AND HEARD SOMETHING.
Fired in this way, later on when they can’t make a living, no one will listen to them if they end up spilling the beans.
“Wild claims by a DISGRACED ss veteran...”
They chose something sexual cuz maybe they SAW some BodyMan action from the First Muzzie.
yes... anyone worth their salt and could be a negative, or worse, being Pro Constitutionally , has just been removed.
The night of the long knives is upon us.
Be ye sheep in the pen for slaughter, or be ye FREE
The individual must choose, and make links with those that are like minded FreeMen, verbally, only....
Trust now, is put only in ones own ability to gather and forge what defense is able.
The hordes are ready, the lines drawn, the postulation of those who are to govren for us but really govern for themselves.......
Should the last bastion of FreeMen become shackled, or shall each individual sacrifice what God taught us to hold sacred, our lives...... I choose to believe he taught us to give our life in the defense of remaining FREE.
I wonder if they were hand picked, and what the diversity breakdown is. Perhaps affirmative action played a role. I know it did for the big O.
Everything else about this administration is unprofessional. I don’t see why the SS should be an exception.
Remember shortly after 9/11? A Secret Service agent, who had joined the force during the time of the Clinton era when no one was being security-checked or even drug tested (because nobody would have passed), was confronted trying to fly private airline to Texas White House where Bush was vacationing.
He had a loaded service sidearm and a book about Islam in his possession. His "papers were not in order" as they say. He disappeared down the memory hole and we never heard another word about him, or what the hell was going on.
Not from The Bush admin, not from Rush, not from any of the bloggers, nobody. The event never happened and the agent never existed. To this day.
I'd believe anything about these priveleged Praetorian Guards.
I was wondering the same thing :)
I thought these guys were just the "warm up band".
