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.”

I think a LOT is going to come out about this walking sack of crap in the white house once he is out of office.
A lot of tongues will be loosened. He can’t stop them all.

I used to be 100+ percent pro-cop and law enforcement etc...Sadly, my trust has diminished substantially.

To be perfectly honest, I no longer trust government or their agents.

I would bet most were black. Obama hates having white Secret Service agents around him, so does Moocher.

Kinda like Chinese Foot Binding for females long ago-—painful for the women, but “attractive” to the men.

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.

Now that I believe.

” - - - serves as the agency’s internal affairs - - - “

I believe that is the same problem that got the employees in deep doo-doo.

Sounds like a good way for Obama to get his picked people in place.

You are a wise man. And, that's not the first time I've thought that.

Regards,

TS

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

These guys were all from the Protective advance party (see other news sources) and in indian country with a history of FARC and narco terrorist activies of a high order. It strains credulity that a dozen of them on the eve of the president's arrival would gather together at a single choke point with local whores under controll of whatever underground/criminal element and be oblivious of video cameras. It's the time that the advance team would be prepping the arriving team on terrain, assets, known bad guys, high potentials, etc. Not a nine to five and it's Miller time job.

My cynical inner lizard brain whispers that such a gathering might be a cover to discuss matters away from others. Wouldn't be the first time ideas other than sex were discussed in a bordello...maybe something to do with oaths? But that's the stuff of novels and movies isn't it.

Yes - good analogy.

I’d believe anything about these priveleged Praetorian Guards.


Yep.

Top people throughout Defense, Intelligence, Justice, etc have been compromised.

Not a peep from any of them against the treachery we’re expeiencing under this Regime.

“These guys”...would gather together at a single choke point with local whores...”

Are you implying that only male SS agents could be susceptible to local whores? Give it a break. The hetero and homo female agents are suspect as well...

More likely, Barry was photographed with his butt buddy.

Oh....you will NOT be sorry. Not one bit.

I still need to purchase that last one. (I’m WAY late...)

The BLUE one is eerily close to what could happen here, in a heartbeat, today. Now.
