Skip to comments.Secret Service agent: Clintonís staff rude, Hillary aloof
Posted on 03/08/2012 7:47:30 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
In a breach of tradition, a former U.S. Secret Service agent has self-published a book that savages the Clinton White House staff as arrogant and rude, suggests former first lady Hillary Clinton was aloof and charges that Bill Clinton endangered himself and agents for a totally pointless photo op on the South Korea-North Korea border.
In several anecdotes, former agent Dan Emmett revealed that Clintons young staff had fundamental traits of rudeness and arrogance that teetered on the verge of being dangerous at times. Most of these youngsters were from wealthy families, and many viewed Secret Services agents as the hired help, he writes in Within Armss Length, an autobiography that provides new details of the inner Secret Service.
In one case he told of an unnamed Clinton staffer who challenged a KGB agent during a 1993 presidential visit to Russia as if he were dealing with a Wackenhut security officer in Toledo.

“Clinton staffer who challenged a KGB agent”
Not a bright move.
I have heard about the Clintons’ arrogance and lack of breeding from MANY DC friends who were in a position to know.
we hvae heard for years how rude Hillary was to the people who protected her.
since as a former first lady she still gets SS protection I wonder if she will become more polite
Emmet probably served with Gary Aldrich. I may have read about him in Gary’s book, but it’s been a while and I don’t remember.
I suppose every president could have some details revealed that would be embarrassing, but when it reaches the level of Clinton and company, I think it’s a national security issue if the agents don’t tell all.
This incident on the bridge to North Korea could have caused a massive international incident. The guy was a juvenile jackass, unfit to be president.
Maybe GOMER, as in SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!
They believe they are untouchable, unassailable, and miles above the stupid little people who pay them.
There is no such thing anymore as a “public servant”.
Today, you will never hear anyone say, “I'm just a lowly civil servant. I don't make much money.” as you may in an old black and white movie.
Today, getting a job with the gubbermint is like winning the lottery. Pensions, Unions, Vacations, Conferences and travel expenses, Cars, Gas Cards, the best Health Insurance in the country, the best Dental in the country, free Tuition, and a salary that has been documented to be up 30% higher than a non-government worker doing the same job.
It is not just Hillary. All gubbermint workers assume that they are a part of the “ruling class”. And they are not far off.
There is also the book Unlimited Access by an FBI agent.
Clinton was a Prince compared to the CS we have in the White House now.
My patient attempts to reason were met with childlike emotion born of a past where no one in authority—probably beginning with her parents—had ever said no to her about anything
Pretty much sums up liberalism...
I always thought she was adyke.
Well, harrumph, I’m shocked, just shocked I tell you.
Yeah, that worked out real well...
Pesky renters. Bill/Hill: Up the rent you’re charging Secret Service and perhaps you’ll get some more upscale folks in Chappaqua. On the other hand, drag a hundred dollar bill around and...
I read “Unlimited Access” by Gary Aldrich years ago - basically said the same thing.
Looking their noses down on the rest of us? The 'eat cake' crowd - with attitude? Who woulda thunk it possible they could be insensitive jerks on top of all that? I'm shocked I tell ya...
My cousin did a stint as a white house military guard—whatever the title. Anyway, he said, after he got out of the service, that hillary was an overripe smelly old bitch. They all detested her nasty demeanor. She is an elitist tyrant with a viscereal hatred for underlings, especially in the military and law enforcement.
oh that picture is just ‘too funny’ neat job...who ever created it...
How would you like to scrap the barnacles of of her bottom
My daughter was an intern for a US Senator. She, and all the other staff members, were told that if they encountered Hillary in the hallways of the Senate office building they should avoid eye contact and NEVER say good morning to her. Also, never get on the elevator if she was getting on. No one was allowed to be in the elevator with her.
I just can’t imagine anyone wanting the job of possibly taking a bullet for Hillary Clinton.
She would get it anyway as secretary of state.
Got it from a very reliable marine source that Hilary the First Lady was so despised they went through her luggage, got one of her bras and posted it up on the squadron bulletin board. Sexist I know, but she was so disliked she was considered fair game.
I’m more interested in hearing what the SS has to say about the Obama White House & staff.
During the Clinton years, Hillary’s behavior was reported on but for whatever reasons didn’t get the press it deserves. Even to staffers and higher level people she was just plain rude. She expected people to dive into rooms when she came by. She didn’t want to share the hall she was walking down with people. I remember someone describing how he tried to say good morning and was stiffed. I also remember that she treated the secret service like dirt, and they called her monster. For this reason, I felt she was unworthy of being president.
In contrast, the both Bushes were models of courtesy to the people around them.
“No one was allowed to be in the elevator with her.”
Who in their right mind would want to get in an elevator with that crazy bitch? I’d be afraid that as soon as the door closed, her fangs would come out and she’d start trying to suck my blood.
IMHO this is a very bad precedent.I don’t care who is in the White House.
Thank you - it’s mine.
My friend worked with (baseball pitching great) Tom Seaver and was told the same thing about him. So every morning when my friend passed him in the hall he would say as cheerfully as he could, "Good morning, Mr. Seaver!" just because he thought it was funny as hell that he completely ignored him.
The SS couldn’t wait to dump her off on Diplomatic Security.
And from what I’ve read, Michelle Obama treats the little people in a similar manner.
Well, she is smarter and better than everyone.
You Freepers need to get this through your thick heads ... I'm not aloof ... it's just that it's hard to remain humble when you're the world's smartest woman ... and idiots like you radical right wing nuts fail to recognize this ... and pay me the proper respect that I'm due ... like bowing before your master ... and groveling ... and granting me the power I so richly deserve ... and challenging my rightful claim to the presidency ... and the supreme court ... and the papacy ... and ignoring a few minor transgressions like Whitewatergate and Fostergate ... and granting me time alone with Huma that I so richly deserve ... and reminding me that Chelsea is Web Hubbell's love child ...
She’s looking especially irritable these days... like she’s not getting any Huma lately.
You meant a government job in DC perhaps because this don't apply to the average government worker. You have to pay into your pension, it's called FERS, they match up to 5% (same as big companies), you don't get a car or gas cards, (you have a car to drive at work if your jobs requires it that is filled up for free but not for your personal use), you choose which health insurance you want (the same companies that's available to private companies at better or worse rates), tuition is reimbursed only if you pass and it applies to your job (big companies have this also), the pay may or may not be the same as a non governmental job. You also have to factor in that some jobs don't really translate to the civilian market.
I once turned in an expense report and was essentially ‘ordered’ to make it more. My supervisor told me that other people had made a similar trip as mine and I was making them look bad. Uh....OK, says I. Wild.
And you could go anywhere in the world all expense paid, and on top of it, you get $100 a day in per diem. So, I was getting paid to be on what was in most respects, a vacation.
It does depend on where you work, but if you get in the right dept, ... wow.
“She would get it anyway as secretary of state.”
Are you sure?
this site doesn’t list cabinet secs getting it unless the potus asks for it
A breach of tradition? Hardly. When has a tell all book not been written about a "first family" by an ex S.S. person?
I guess you.d have to go back to when the S.S. first started.
You know, it really HURTS when you almost laugh your head off. I hope you’re satisfied...
