from my sources, this behavior is nothing new.
I don’t believe your sources and you shouldn’t either.
My understanding as well....but who blew the whistle on this? Has that been disclosed?
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 !
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
