Washington (CNN) -- Five members of America's elite Army Special Forces are among those under investigation in a prostitution scandal in Colombia, two U.S. officials said Wednesday, as the controversy continues to swirl in both countries.

Eleven Secret Service members have been implicated in the probe, while as many as 10 U.S. military personnel from all branches of the armed forces are being questioned about potential misconduct after an alleged prostitute complained about a lack of payment.

As someone who used to live in Thailand, this kind of thing is nothing. Saw the military and government security types in Bangkok participating regularly in party’s that would put this little Columbian soirée to shame. Common knowledge for most of us that were living in Bangkok and just par for the course. The only problem here is it sounds like the Secret Service guys screwed up and gave the media an excuse to get involved.

These guys are being targeted soley because they are heterosexual. If they had all been gays getting their jollies at an AIDS-infested homosexual bath house, NOT A WORD would have been said by the Monolithic Media.

What exactly is the "potential misconduct"?

During my time in the service, a young, healthy, single airman could pretty much put it wherever he wanted except maybe the CO's wife or daughter and most certainly not his son.

This is all a smokescreen. What is the real issue? The hildabeast being caught, on camera, with her girlfriends?

From my Shore Patrol days, our in-uniform equipment included clubs ... and packets of condoms to be issued upon request.

I wonder if that idiot still thinks it was a good idea to “stiff” his hooker and make a scene.

During R&R in Bankok you could get group discounts!! Hookers were in the hotels the govt assigned as billets while you were there. The medics would issue condoms.

Hillary wants to be seen partying right when SS & Military are busted for partying.

So she aligns herself with them, rather than distancing herself from them. In other words, the opposite of what you'd expect.

So she wants to show suppoort and solidarity with them without saying so. So who are they? They're the ones closest to the president. They know things about what goes on around Obama. And now they're being attacked, maybe politically purged.

So Hillary wants to let everyone know that SHE knows WHY they are being purged. So, she parties like they did, to send the message that she can access their testimony for her political benefit at any time.

Or...

She's partying because she didn't like them, and she wanted to laugh at them by getting away with the same thing they were being busted for.

Hard to tell with her, she's such a crazy, malicious bitch.

Or both reasons, at the same time.

Hillary’s known for screwing her friends straight into hell.

Hey!

They wrote “prostitution” and “probe” in the same sentence!

(what else makes those forces “special”?)

I have a theory that is so wild, so off the wall bizarre, that if true, could rewrite history. Call me a conspiracy nut, but here goes:

A bunch of guys got drunk, hired some hookers and got caught.

Or maybe they were going to expose her - so she beat them to the punch.
