The dozen Secret Service agents sent home after a prostitution scandal in Colombia were busted after at least one of them refused to pay a hooker, sources said.
The scandal a black eye for the United States reputation abroad was revealed Friday before President Obama arrived in Cartagena for the Summit of the Americas.
The 12 agents were part of an advance team meant to secure a local hotel before the summit began yet their attention apparently turned to taking advantage of Colombias policy of legal prostitution.
They had arranged to have a bunch of prostitutes come by and one of the agents refused to pay a prostitute, said author Ronald Kessler, one of the leading experts on the Secret Service. Yes, doubly good judgement there.
[snip] Prostitution is legal in Colombia, as long as it is conducted in so-called tolerance zones.

They didn’t pay because they thought it was covered under ObamaCare.
Just doing things the Chicago way...
The only possible explanation is that they were directed to procure a few hookers for Obama and Obama was not willing or able to pay.
oh. so it’s not that they were in contact with hookers, it’s that they didn’t pay them?
These are Geithner’s boys. All take and no give.
But, that’s the hallmark of the Obama crew. Their motto: “Screw You”.
If this is true (really wondering about that) this almost leads to the question whether those guys are perhaps accustomed to impressing ladies with their job and status, and since prostitution is illegal in most of the USA - may not even have considered the young lady really wasn’t there as a starstruck ‘important guys in uniform’ groupie?
One would certainly hope it was an honest mistake, if it really happened.
Why is the Obama Admin making a media circus of this. They should be discreet. It is foolish for them to make enemies of the SS.
They acted no differently than any garden-variety United Nations diplomat.
And they mistakenly procured females.
It seems the first reports were they were fired because of hookers.
Now, it seems hookers are legal so they are being recalled because someone didn’t pay.
Next up...is someone going to claim rape?
This whole thing seems so contrived.
I hope one of them starts talking...
They make me sick..
Since they didn’t pay the hooker would this be the “war on women?”
They make me sick..
Is it possible that instead of refusing to pay, they may have KILLED a prostitute? What else would require diplomatic intervention?
How about the Secret Service team had been compromised so they had to pull them all out and used a BS excuse about a hooker.
Its clear that where ever Obama goes, people get screwed!
He is working for Obama. Sheeple are supposed to give them free “stuff”.
Maybe they didn’t want to pay because they didn’t think they were prostitutes? That the babes just wanted to be with the cool Secret Service dudes?
Unlikely, I know.
