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.

Or natural causes.
If this would have happened under another Administration it would have been kept Silent and nobody would have known. The Press knows it, Prints it, and the boy has hardly landed. This whole Trip stunk from the first.
Check this OUT! This picture is worth a thousand words and more....
Cartagena, and Colombia in general, are dangerous places.
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.
Thanks for the inside info. Not as many readers will see it since this breaking news story has been removed from Breaking News.
Maybe some SS agent(s) saw Zero servicing somebody..
Regular democrat damage control..
Man, woman, child, animal?... Who knows?..
I wouldn’t’ be surprised at any of the four..
Like the Seals killing Osama’s look-alike..
Zero makes Newt seem like a holy martyr..
And everyone knows Newt’s a whore..
Am I the first???
Am I the first???
Where’s Edwards, Hart, Kennedy, when you need them???
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 . . .
All this is on hotel video.
You mean you expect me for one second to believe zero wouldn’t cover the ‘incidentals’ for his men as they secured the perimeter?
I have Colombian friends and they detest 0bama and can’t understand how the “Norte Americanos” could ever tolerate or accept such a person.
They also detest Hugo Chavez, 0bama’s buddy.
Odungo has to be careful who hangs out to dry, I’ll bet the SS has seen things that normally would have had him behind bars years ago. He may be setting someone up to keep them quiet, but it could backfire like anything else this moron has tried
Ordinary Columbian Woman
An unwise reprieve from the dispiriting task of protecting a practitioner of Marxism?
....then again...it could be the “cover” story to cover something else coming out....like clinton’s Monica hid chinese bringing bags of money to the WH. They know America’s thrust for scandal...throw out the red herring to occupy the front page while doing the nasty bits.
This is a video from THE incident:
I hoped they confirmed the gender of their Columbian prostitutes first.
There’s also the other zero stepping out with a detail that wasn’t her husband’s, if you remember.
