Posted on 04/14/2012 3:57:37 PM PDT by lbryce
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.

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.
My goodness, servicemen and bar girls in a foreign
land, what is the world coming to.
How many of the media staying in the SAME hotel
had girls staying with THEM??
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 bastards trip to Colombia.
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?
Military men buying hookers? I’m shocked!
Mitt Romney’s mother wears army boots.
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
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?
I did a keyword/title search several times and only got the single article I posted on the subject. Wopuld you kindly provide the link to the duplicate you are referring to? Thank you.
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.
Next weeks Breaking News: Obama eats live human babies. Signs No Live Baby Eating Bill... HR666.
Barry corrupts everything he comes in contact with. Just look at moo-bama for example.

not that I don’t think these fine men could just be immoral pigs, because I think they could be, but this story is all too pat...didn’t Clintoon “transfer” troopers and Ss agents at his discretion?...
Gee I wonder if they will remember to wash the sheets for bambi.
Second Request: Gay State Conservative; Would you please kindly provide the link that you said my post is a duplicate of? Thanks very much.
This case seems more like that of one Clayton Hartwig, USN.
This is WTF, right?
Winning The Future, Obama says...
Never let a crisis go to waste.
Lbryce: there are now tens of threads about this. Ignore the duplicate ‘complaint’. We dupe every hot topic because every new thread tends to bring out new facts or observations. You’re OK. Ignore ‘dupe’ people who don’t provide the link for the thread that superseded yours.
USSS TSD (Tech Services Division) uses active duty DOD troops in EOD, Communications etc ... not to mention the AF 1 crew, Marine 1 Crews as well as the C-17’s carting the “Beast” and other motorcade special purpose vehicles around as well as CAT teams, etc etc ...
I’ve seen me do it !.......:o)
Stay safe !
I still do not see the big deal in this whole supposed “scandal”.
I don’t care what these people do, and why am I supposed to?
I’ve gotten my share of weirdos, manic FReepers who’d harass me to no end about having posted a duplicate.
Thank you very much for taking the time to enlighten me on the subject. I need to know the significance of all messages I get, lest God Forbid I get ZOTTED.
Oh, we’ve all been zotted from time to time, just relax. Those of us who want to be here are still here, as we maintain decorum over the years.
Everybody swings to and supports the USSS when needed. FBI, everybody.
My take on this is that somebody thought he was just so damn charming and dashing, that the gorgeous model-hot babe at the bar really just dug him so much, she wanted him to take her to his room.
Then he was shocked to find out that the beautiful and eager lady was a working gal, and stiffed her. What fun. I’d love to know the real story, but I’ll bet it was hilarious.
Then, everybody else who had been anywhere near the working girls got thrown under the bus too.
Maybe the Keynesian-Kenyan should borrow Louis Farrakhan’s body guards. At least you’ll know where they are 5 times a day.
I don’t care how low morale is, that is no reason to go screw the natives.
These are trashy people who have been hired by this regime.
I wonder if BO sent one of the agents to score him some coke?
The Secret Service should go on strike for an in house brothel. Maybe Obama probably wants the New Black Panthers to start running the show anyway.
This entire Presidency is a complete joke.
Perhaps because they help protect various people of national importance?
Since Obama is following the Marxist Playbook of Despots rising to power - this has all the earmarks of a purge to install his own junta forces, his own private praetorian or SS.
Nothing is as it is portrayed with this regime.
Sinister is what clouds every aspect of it.
Better to discover it now. Secret Service agents who can’t keep it in their pants are susceptible to blackmail and corruption. And if, heaven forefend, their being compromised leads to a dead Kenyan, the MSM will make him out to be a martyr and we’ll never see the end of the conspiracy theories. See JFK for an example of what happens. Dead Dem presidents don’t die, and they don’t fade away, either.
Very good as he is pretending he made the free trade agreement happen instead of the actual truth, that he held it back.
This is reminiscent of the way a certain tyrant set up his security detail.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Yes, the historic parallels between Obama and European fascists are overwhelming.
If the five military guys are proven to have any association with hookers....they will be kicked out. That’s the “new” military that has evolved over the past decade. Most of the GI’s from the Vietnam era will laugh over this, but we’ve sanitized ourselves to such a degree....that we have to be clean and pure.
As for the Secret Service guys? I think they are finished too. They will all be working for some state police unit in Kansas or Texas within six months. Clean and pure....that’s the standard.
"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization".It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.Most of the activity of the department [KGB] was to compile huge amount / volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion. Publisher, editors, journalists, uh actors, educationalists, professors of political science. Members of parliament, representatives of business circles.Most of these people were divided roughly into two groups: those who would tow the Soviet foreign policy, they would be promoted to positions of power through media and public manipulation; [and] those who refuse the Soviet influence in their own country would be character assassinated OR executed physically, come Revolution.

Don't need no Weatherman to see which way the wind
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
