Reports suggested that the misconduct involved prostitutes in Cartagena, site of the Summit of the Americas. A Secret Service spokesman did not dispute that.
A US official said 12 officials were sent home. The agents were staying at Cartagena's Hotel Caribe, which is also hosting members of the White House staff and press corps during the summit
A hotel employee said the agents arrived at the beachfront hotel about a week ago, and claimed they were drinking heavily during their stay.
The employee said the agents left the hotel Thursday, a day before Obama and other regional leaders arrived for the weekend summit.
The Washington Post reported that Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, said the accusations related to at least one agent having involvement with prostitutes in Cartagena. The association represents federal law enforcement officers, including the Secret Service.

First I’ve ever heard of anything like this
If I had to guard Obummer’s worthless hide at the possible cost of my own life, I’d drink heavily too.
SOunds like this was the team that goes in there first to check out th place. Everything checked out so it’s Miller time.
Do as I say not as I do
And was this a woman agent or a male agent????
” First Ive ever heard of anything like this “
Lots of ‘firsts’ in the history of the Obama Administration — tossing the Secret Service onto the sacrificial altar for yet another ‘smokescreen’ story would certainly be in character....
Any bets on how this besmirching of a heretofore (mostly) pristine organization gets more MSM coverage in a weekend than “Fast & Furious/Gunwalker” got in two years??
You beat me to it.
I think he beat all of us to it.
It’s never “Miller Time” while in country. Sounds more like a bunch of kids on their first overseas field trip. Somebody ignored the Embassy’s warnings during the inbriefing, and got compromised. Big time.
Oh, oh - young alpha males drinking and running around with loose women - what’s next, baseball players chewing tobacco?
Oh, wait, no - that vice is now off limits, too.
Looks like America will have to fall back on the old standbys - watching politicians lie, cheat, and steal, and reading phony puff pieces written by journalist con artists about Marxist thugs in congress and the White House.
But, hey, at least those nasty men aren’t drinking and running with fast women.
If this had happened during the Clinton years...
Obama’s war on the Secret Service?
That was my thought too.
Gotta wonder what the rest of the story is...besides the distraction angle. If Secret Service ever talks, Barky’s number is up.
They are probably not worried about enemies because Obamma mamba Jamma Lenin Khomeini is one of them don’t you know comrade..wink wink..nod nod..
men are complete idiots when it comes to sticking their anatomy in some nasty place.
It may be the beginning of Obamma surrounding himself with folks ready to force Obamma on the American people. Perhaps he worries about the secret service not backing him in a coup.
