Why would a liberal like Senator Collins have a problem with this?

Oh, its an election year.

The summit was to also focus on sexual exploitation and sexual slavery. Obama again proved do as I say not as my Secret Service does. He was only mad as he didn’t get to play with the boys this trip. But Hillary did get to play with the girls. Now why did she not get admonsished by the President or the press?

Well, a fish rots from the head down. The dirtbag street culture of the obama scum has infected the SS, along with the FBI, BATF, etc etc.

Fast and Furious eh boys?

Let’s do the math? 11 agents and 20 women.

Hell, in my day any 11 of us Lieutenants would’ve done better than that.

As a former Marine who has hit more than a few liberty ports ... this kind of stuff has been ongoing for a long time ... don’t give me this SS agents are a breed apart. They’ve been pulling this type of BS off for a long time. This time they were caught with their hand in the cookie jar ...

Somewhat surprisingly, there is an Israeli connection here. Some folks think that this was a Mossad operation run by Netanyahu to let Obama know that Israel is displeased.

Leaving the current resident of the White House out of the equation, I wouldn’t trust any man who would betray his vows to his wife. Certainly not to lay down his life to protect the president. He simply is not a man of his word. One can try to justify it all he wants, but the fact remains that a man who would step out on his wife is a man who cannot be trusted with anything of value.

Worked these details for 21 years.... After the vip departs it was a wheels up party. Never beforehand. Afterwards we enjoyed the local attractions etc...

If we messed up while on travel we would have been banned from personal security details an supporting the technical services division of the USSS.

Show yer ass an they will kick it !

Can't speak for all men, but the SS HAS to be a cut above. The HAVE to know what they do is literally the most important job in the world, protecting the President. If they are "party dudes", they have no business being SS.

God forbid any POTUS was assassinated because of some lame-ass security breech.

Don't these guys get briefed about things like this? It has to come up in training.

“One can try to justify it all he wants, but the fact remains that a man who would step out on his wife is a man who cannot be trusted with anything of value.”

You didn't get the memo? You can't talk this way in 2012; moral relativism and all that. What they do with their personal life is none of anyone’s business and doesn't impact their professional life anyway, oral sex is not really sex, it depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is...

from my sources, this behavior is nothing new

We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;
While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, fall behind",
But it's "Please to walk in front, sir", when there's trouble in the wind,
There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind,
O it's "Please to walk in front, sir", when there's trouble in the wind.

It was ever thus, and ever will be. Yawn.

Really? ANd which sources are those.... current secret service agents???

I have carried a security clearance for most of my career. I am not part of the secret service. The rules are VERY CLEAR when I travel (particularly over seas) I MUST report every contact that I have. I am debriefed thoroughly when I return.

These yahoos are either the dumbest drunks around or something else is going on that is very very scary

And still the Drive-By Media has never looked into Barry's Wild Limo Ride in Gurnee in 1999. Since Barry is now the leader of the dysfunctional and party-hardy GSA and incompetent party-hardy USSS, he was simply ahead of his time when he was a lowly Ill-Annoy legislator.

Really???? Are you a secret service agent??? Do you carry a security clearance in any of your work?? Or are you like Bradley Manning and carry a clearance and totally disregard it?

There are folks who take their clearances seriously and treat them with the appropriate behavior. Not everyone has the morals of slimy alley cats

I'm hoping it's just burned-out drunks after too many deployments. Just hoping, mind you, but that's not what I think is more likely -- another corrupt agency.

Look at the crap the GSA has done. At one time, they were the penny pinchers who drove every bid to the minimum.

You may know Marines. You may have the same slimy morals as the alley cats that roam the garbage filled streets of any give port. But you do NOT know ‘the breed’. In fact you would never qualify to be part of the breed.

Could be that Obama-influenced cronyism in hiring eroded the character and professionalism of the SS, assuming this conduct was not common practice under other administrations as some Freepers seem to imply.

...married secret service agents joke during aircraft take-off that their motto is "wheels up, rings off".

And when their wives find out, it's "pick up phone, call divorce attorney, and rake cheating husband over the hot coals" time. Stupid, stupid men.

The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about this, was that they were on a scouting mission for Odumbo.

The second thing was, can you imagine the media outrage if this had happened when Bush was president?
