Investigators probing the Secret Service prostitute scandal are looking into whether any of the girls involved were underage, Ronald Kessler, the journalist who broke the story, tells Newsmax.TV exclusively.
Kessler warned that more scandalous details of the Colombian cavorting are still to come, including the age of the prostitutes.

Kessler, Newsmaxs chief Washington correspondent, broke the story of the scandal over the weekend. The details have since been confirmed by the Secret Service, and President Barack Obama has called for an investigation.
Up to a dozen agents were sent home from Cartagena, Colombia, where the president was attending the Summit of the Americas.
Kessler, whose reporting partly led to the dismissal of FBI Director William Sessions in 1993, said Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan also needs to be fired, especially as this is the second major scandal he has presided over. He was also in charge when three intruders wormed their way past security to attend a 2009 White House dinner in honor of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh...

It's not the first time.....
Snip November 18, 2011: A SECRET booklet describing Barack Obama's Australian schedule down to the minute, as well as the breakdown of his security convoy and the mobile numbers of dozens of senior US and Australian officials, was found by the Herald lying on a Canberra street yesterday morning.
OK, I sztand corrected. This section seems pretty clear:
``(f) Definition.—As used in this section, the term `illicit sexual
conduct’ means (1) a sexual act (as defined in section 2246) with a
person under 18 years of age that would be in violation of chapter 109A
if the sexual act occurred in the special maritime and territorial
jurisdiction of the United States; or (2) any commercial sex act (as
defined in section 1591) with a person under 18 years of age.”
How the US expects to police activity among its citizens visiting a foreign country absent any complaint or notification from local police or victim escapes me. Sounds like another bad law on the books, as any unenforceable or victimless crime is a bad law.
Interesting. So the U.S. Federal Law Regarding Child Sex Tourism in effect sets an age of consent (18) for prostitutes used by Americans abroad. The penalty for a repeat offense can be life in prison.
This isn't really a matter of law. It's a matter of character. It's been a while since I have been interviewed by the FBI for my security clearances and my friends' security clearances, but my recollection is that back in the 70s and 80s they were most interested in in who one hung around with. Maybe Gary Aldrich would chime in about this?
Oh yes, it’s real. There are groups of people as well as law enforcement in countries frequented by sexual tourists, such as Thailand, who specifically watch for Americans engaged in this activity.
Dayum - what do they think they are? The UN?
See my post #37.
If it were just one or two, I'd believe it but they've gone too far with their little story. First it was a couple of SS, then it was eleven and then there were an unknown number of military officials. At first it was one prositute and $47 but now there multiple girls and their underage. Then we get some dude in the tub who looks very limp wristed. What's next? Yep, the more that's piled on, the more it stinks like set up.
They are probably former UN Employees.
“That is sexual tourism, and that is illegal.”
America does have the right to impose its laws on all, everywhere they go, whatever they do.
Other national laws are meaningless.
Conclusion: When an AgencyPerson makes work for lawyers and assorted govt. trough feeders, beware of their “We’re protectin’ those chilrun”. justification
I suspect them more of wanting control, and an ongoing place at the feeding trough, more than an honest desire to protect children who will be sex workers whether an American or someone else hires their services.

Fixed it for you. Important details are important. Let's try not to neglect them in the future.
“If you cant boink little girls in America, then you cant fly to Thailand and do it there either, nor can you fly to Columbia and do it there either.”
Logic 101 is your friend. Over-reaching government isn’t.
Don’t know or care what your point is.
I’m right and you’re not.
Yes, 12 agents.
What if...the misbehaving agents were hired by the Obama administration. If you have to get rid of only the new-hires it looks best to paint all of them with the same brush and fire them all.
Columbia is a university in New York.
“They are probably former UN Employees.”
Unlikely, as they didn’t pay for kiddie sex with USA donated food packages.
” I’m going to reserve an opinion for now, something stinks here. “
I’m with you on this.
Repition is not refutation.
Beware the fruminous bureausnitch.
You should eat some more guru chew, guru.
You have holes in your aura.
