Secret Service agents on Obama detail sent home from Netherlands after night of drinking

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of the agents was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said.

The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed Tuesday evening that the agency “did send three employees home for disciplinary reasons” and that they were put on administrative leave pending an investigation. Donovan declined to comment further.

According to two people familiar with the Amsterdam incident, the three are members of the Secret Service’s Counter Assault Team, known in the agency as CAT.

I would also have to get drunk to serve Obumbo and company.

No kidding. I’ll bet their morale sucks because they know they are guarding a completely worthless piece of crap.

If I had to work that detail I’d probably start drinking again.

I figured by now all his guards would come from the Nation of Islam. How could he trust a patriot to protect him?

The maids should have taken pictures. Amsterdam is full of whores, too—real ones, legal ones—wonder if any of the working girls and boys were sleeping it off beside our Majesty’s Secret Service?

How could you stand this job, pledging to protect this lousy leader with your own life, without the comfort of the bottle or other drugs?

In the last two years of this sick administration, the entire corrupt operation will be in chaos and the USA will be the laughing stock of the world.

A mother duck and her ducklings decide to seek shelter next to a United States Secret Service agent. Note the FN P90. It’s very likely the agent is part of the CAT (Counter Assault Team). Agents used to carry the Uzi, but replaced them for the MP5 and P90, although the latter hasn’t completely replaced the former.

Obvious advantage over a traditional sub-machine gun or other PDW designs is the larger magazine capacity, smaller, slimmer profile and high rate of fire with a caliber capable of penetrating body armor to a certain degree.

Tasked to protect a despicable, lying traitor like Obozo could drive a guy to drink, I reckon.

Agents attached to Obama see little time with the families given the Obama’s away from the White House.

You are right on. The mother duck intuitively recognized the advantage of the superior weapon to her brood

Does anyone in FR-land know for sure if this is a voluntary assignment or one that an agent is simply given? It used to be highly sought. Now? I have no current info.

_____________________________________________________
I have no clue, but my guess is that it is an assignment.
I can not imagine anyone volunteering to protect the scumbags.

My thought exactly. It must be hellish to know you have to protect this imbecile.

In the SS protection division the detail of the president is the brass ring, until now.

Associated Press has updated and is reporting that there was only ONE besotted agent....the other two were deemed complicit, suspended and sent home because "they didn't intervene despite being in a position to assist the diminished agent".

If Obama wants a bunch of incompetent drunks defending him, I guess that’s fine with me.
