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
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.
One evening in about 1988 we were chatting with some friends and one mentioned that she had just returned from a visit to East Germany and talked at length about her experience.
My friend bemoaned the fact that he would have to go home and make a report of this conversation.
