WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's safety was not jeopardized by the actions of Secret Service agents who brought prostitutes back to a Colombia hotel on the eve of his arrival, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano assured a Senate committee Wednesday.

"There was no risk to the president," she told a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the first public questioning of an administration official since the scandal broke as Obama prepared to visit Cartagena for a summit.

Napolitano said that a review of Secret Service records showed no similar episodes of misconduct that might have warned of brewing problems at the agency. The Office of Professional Responsibility has looked back at two and half years of complaints and found "there was nothing in the record to suggest that this behavior would happen," she said.

Funny , She has to be an idiot, there can be no further explanation.

She says she looked at the records and could find no evidence that this ever happened before. So everything is cool.

Did she really expect to find in the records that SS Agents had hired hookers? Certainly as dumb as that a-hole was who didn’t pay the hooker he isn’t stupid enough to put in the record that he had hired them before. The rest of them arent that stupid either. She never heard of the fraternity of LEO’s

They have never been CAUGHT before——idiot.

You forgot the part about the other story out there today. Apparently at least some of the SS agents were too drunk to perform and went right to sleep after bring the hookers back to the hotel. So you have passed out agents and hookers hanging out in their rooms.

I personally don't care if his life was in danger or not. I do care about national security and this is unacceptable.

Once all the prostitutes were determined to be females, there was no threat.

Physical risk...maybe not. National Security risk with a spy sleeping with a SS agent or a military man. Pretty sure that would be one. Big sis punts again.
