Secret Service Scandal Rocks Obama Trip
Politico ^ | Friday, April 13, 2012 | Donovan Slack

Posted on 04/13/2012 8:04:16 PM PDT by kristinn

Up to a dozen Secret Service agents in Colombia for President Barack Obama’s 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 president’s 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 President’s 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 agency’s internal affairs component,” the agency said. “These personnel changes will not affect the comprehensive security plan that has been prepared in advance of the President’s trip.”

Sounds like a good way for Obama to get his

These Secret Service agents better be careful. They may all die in a plane crash or something. Like that SEAL team.

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.

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.

See?

They chose something sexual cuz maybe they SAW some BodyMan action from the First Muzzie.

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.

Secret Service.

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.

Remember what Obama said just a few days ago:

"I’m raising a family here. When we travel, we gotta travel through Secret Service and Air Force One. That’s not my choice. I think most folks understand how hard I work and how hard this administration is working on behalf of the American people."

Never mind..probably just a coincidence that it's never his fault.

Partly, but I’m thinking it’s also time to get them out because they have seen too much, or are at risk of seeing too much. This way their careers are flushed and (wonder of wonders) no one is going to place any credibility on what disgraced and bitter hound dog SS agents have to say about Herr Leader and Moochelle and their actions.

This smells of a purge.

A definite possibility, these guys are supposed to be
the cream of the crop, the only way this happened is a
set up.

I don’t get it.

They dont tell the truth about the manchurian Obama and they continue as if nothing happened.....

and they get canned for having a few hookers...

Where does this make sense?

What was it really? They didn’t want to do presidential blow? OR blow the president? Or they saw him doing blow? What is the real story?

Inside info:

It was not only Secret Service, but also some Army Special Forces guys.

They didn't pay some of the hookers.

At the hotel, they had to sign the girls in, so all the guys, by name are linked to the hookers.

All this is on hotel video.

Remember the German SS were origionally personal
security for the leader. Politically reliable,
sworn to protect HIM. Then they grew.

For the presidential security cadre to fall for
a honey trap is beyond belief, that means it’s
something else.

Why am I having trouble believing this?

Why would SS agents who are the creme de la creme risk everything for some prostitutes? One or two maybe in a compromising position, but 12?

It sounds like they needed to be rotated out fast and made examples of, or tarred and feathered, for some reason.

SS agents are far too professional and dedicated to risk their careers for something of little value.

I think they saw something or found out something they should not have and maybe were going to do a little whistleblowing, and we can’t have that now, can we?

Of course, just another American icon, the dedicated SS agent, willing to take a bullet for the Prez, is tarnished, thanks to the Usurper-in-Chief.

This is an embarrassment not only to the Obama administration but also to the United States.

We’re talking about a third world country and the bodyguards of the President taking advantage of their poverty.

By the way, this is one big reason why democrats support policies that increase poverty in the US and lowering the age of consent. Sorry but it’s true. They want to have power over them.

Not unlike the Muzzies. Sex drives them to go as far as commit suicide for Allah in return for 72 virgins.

Betting that this is some kind of setup, their absolutely best bet re safety is to go public ASAP.

I'm with the others here, one or two perhaps, but 12 strains credibility to the breaking point.

Yet again, the odious smell of Halfrican TraitØr is in the air . . .
