Secret Service Scandal Widens to US Military (Ho! Hum! Another Day Another Bammy Scandal)
AP via Yahoo News ^ | April 14,2012 | JULIE PACE and LIBARDO CARDONA |

An embarrassing scandal involving prostitutes and Secret Service agents widened Saturday when the U.S. military confirmed five service members staying at the same hotel in Colombia may have been involved in misconduct as well. The allegations overshadowed President Barack Obama's diplomacy in Latin America and threatened to bruise America's image.

The White House found itself having to insist that Obama still had full confidence in the agency designed to protect his life.

What is the big deal? The Obama Screw-up Scandal of the day is part of doing business with the administration. Look, it's not like Bammy had any real world work experience. So cut him some slack so he'll be all fresh and prepared in 2013 for his new job.

Someone wants to get rid of one or more of the members of the first advance team. The way to do that is to manufacture a scandal and then pull the individual’s (or individuals’) security clearance (clearances). No clearance, not job, problem solved.

This method has become very widespread in the executive branch under this administration.

Morale in those agencies must be lower than whale crap. Bubba the love sponge Clinton must have been hard to deal with, but at least he did the job semi-seriously.

I can’t imagine the internal conflicts the Secret Service and military officers assigned to Obama must be feeling. They all swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. They are obviously intelligent and motivated. When they see the President committing what their minds’ insist is treason to the Constitution, it has to have an affect.

I can very easily imagine a few start getting bent and frayed around the edges. Booze and hookers is about what I would expect.

What could you be negotiating in Columbia that would warrant having only a hand picked team within ear shot? I wonder what subject could be? Coffee? /sarc

I did an article title/keyword search and all that came up was the story I posted. Would you kindly send me the link to the duplicate story you’re referring to?

This scandal has overshadowed the Kenyan bastard’s trip to Colombia.

Good.

He will probably blame the Tea Party for it.

This is reminiscent of the way a certain tyrant set up his security detail.

Is it possible the advanced team took exception to Obama meeting someone in say the coffee business, perhaps the advanced team did their due diligence and found something troubling about someone who would meet Obama, perhaps that concern ruffled some feather?

If your life depended on the integrity of one or more of the following groups, which, if any, would you trust?

Presidential Secret Service Detail
Presidential Military Aides & military advance party
Presidential Press Secretary & his Staff
Presidential Chief of Staff & his Staff
The President

If your life depended on the integrity of one or more of the following groups, which, if any, would you DEFINITELY NOT trust?

If either of these questions seems too difficult, ask yourself, which groups have been subject to the most thorough vetting?

This story brings to mind a bit of history involving another embarrassment to America’s finest fighting force.

Anyone remember Sgt. Clayton Lonetree, USMC?

He was a Marine Security Guard in, I believe, Leningrad or maybe Stalingrad about the mid 1970’s. He and a couple of other Marines got a little too close to a couple of nice Russian girls, one of whom had an Uncle Sascha who just happened to work for the KGB. The girls persuaded the lonely young Marines to let them in the Marine House and Lonetree eventually started providing classifed docs to Uncle Sascha’s niece who provided it to Uncle Sascha.

He’s probably out of Leavenworth by now.

Re: Anyone remember Sgt. Clayton Lonetree, USMC?


Just did some quick research. It was 1985 and Moscow. I misspelled Sascha. It is Sasha. Lonetree was released 2/26/96. Hey, I was only off 1 decade. Sorry, I should have done my due diligence before I posted above. That said, I still am impressed that I was able to remember that much from so long ago.

Barry corrupts everything he comes in contact with. Just look at moo-bama for example.
