Secret Service hooker flap over $47
NY Post ^ | 4/15/12 | GEOFF EARLE in DC and DON KAPLAN

Posted on 04/15/2012 5:56:05 AM PDT by jimbo123

A Secret Service agent shamed the United States after a wild night of babes and booze that ended in an argument with a Colombian hooker over as little as $47.

One of 11 elite agents assigned to ensure President Obama’s protection at a summit meeting in Cartagena, Colombia, was busted after his lady of the evening refused to leave his hotel room in the morning without her fee.

That woman was one of 11 hookers hired by the agents — and the only one who hadn’t left Cartagena’s swank Hotel Caribe, where White House staffers, members of the press and dignitaries are staying during the Summit of the Americas meeting, sources said.

Wait, the scandal with the whores is going to be blamed on "Bush," right?

Never served overseas in the military, did you?

Do you know why R&R is also referred to as I&I?

And he was shocked to discover she wanted money!

Didn't she realize they work for a commie and she was expected to share the wealth.

The service members, with the Southern Command, are still in Colombia “because of the expertise and the knowledge that these guys have,” a military spokesman told CBS News.

Agreed. But it seems a whole different level of seriousness when its a presidential security detail and not just soldiers on R&R.

Have to admit colombian babes are hot! Id probably cave if one just smiled at me while stone cold sober.

I just grabbed this off the net, but it's about what I'm guessing the scene at the hotel pool and bar looked like at any given time. Their Cartagena lodging was at a first-class beach resort hotel, in a city just crawling with chicas guapas.

The USSS advance team might have had a little more on their minds than security, when checking out the hotel bar and pool.

Finally. An Obama scandal where it’s appropriate to blame it on Bush.

Holding the conference in Brazil would have solved that problem.

Not 24 hours a day.

Look, I don’t know you, but I know men in their 30s, who consider themselves top-tier macho studs. Hell, I was a USN frogman overseas myself. Do you think they are monks? They are NOT. Especially not when spending a week in the advance party at a hotel crawling with feminine beauty of the highest order. Believe me, they are not monks!

And here's the real story:

Without mentioning the Secret Service scandal specifically, Obama — who arrived in Cartagena on Friday — blasted “flashy” coverage of the controversy.

Obama "blasted" the coverage, not the story itself. Because everything that goes wrong is the fault of the press for reporting it.

The company I used to work for held a gathering of newly acquired divisions at a Tulsa hotel some years ago. After the dinner, there was an open bar and many adult beverages were consumed.
I arrived late and asked about the tab as of 11:30 pm. It was $2300 and change.
I asked the bar keeper to announce last call and put the bar bill on my credit card.
The next day, I mentioned to my boss that my expenses would be a bit heavy and explained why.
He signed off and nothing was ever said...

It would be interesting to find out how much of the old guard in Barry’s SS detail had been replaced by those picked specifically for their fealty to him and his program.

Everything that goes wrong is the fault of somebody else. In this case it's the press. Other culprits have been Bush, Congress, the rich, Bush, oil companies, the "1%", Republicans, Bush, health insurance companies, millionaires and billionaires, Paul Ryan, and Bush.

I wonder how many were picked because they looked like Obama's son (if he had one).

Years ago, I was a nanny for 6 kids. After being lied to by one of the teenagers in my care, I had a talk about honor. I told him that we all were born with this gift but once we lied or did something to make people not trust us, all the money in the world cannot restore it. I don’t know if he ever told his parents what I said but I hope he remembered what we discussed.

When hubby and I were dating, he was in his hotel room and there was a knock at the door. I thought he was putting the phone down when he said, I’ll be right back’ and he thought he was going to call me back and thought he hung up. A coworker was at the door. She had been drinking and liked what she saw earlier so thought she would ‘partake’. Unbeknownst to future hubby, I heard the whole thing. He was gentlemanly and refused to humiliate her but firmly told her he would see her tomorrow. Fueled by alcohol, she was insistant and refused to take no. I heard him say, “I am going to watch tv alone and wake up alone and you need to do the same. Good night” before he closed the door.

I married him, not only because I completely love him, but because he does the right thing when no one is looking.

These SS’s wives are in for a world of pain and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. I am thinking this may not be the agents’ first rodeo but is certainly their last- at least on the taxpayer’s dime.

I don’t believe this story for a minute - it smells to high heaven. It’s far more likely that these men were set up for demonization because they saw something potentially damaging to Obama or some of his staff, and they have to be discredited and silenced or their reputations ruined to protect someone.

No, it was as simple as a few guys little heads got their big heads in trouble and the other guys went along and they just let their guard down.

My little head has made me do stoooopid stuff in the past that I cringe over now(and at the time). Good thing my GF has my same drive or I would still be doing stoopid stuff.

First off - we do not know what really happen.

We only know what is being reported.

Remember, the media will lie to protect those they support.

If I believed in conspiracy I would say they where set up. Why, one or more of them pissed off the administration some way or they saw or heard something that they shouldn’t.

Now they are being demonized so that anything they have to say now will be dismissed as sour grapes.

I am waiting for one of these secret service agents to begin leaking information and then we may find out the real story.

I want to see names and faces. This can’t be our Secret Service. The bamster left the SS behind and took his Black Panthers for a South American joyride. I can see them now protecting the prez outside the hotel with their baseball bats.

It also proves that U.S. hookers are smarter than those south of the border. One of ours would have cried rape and soaked up the media rapture.

Seriously, why aren’t these guys named and faces shown. Wonder how many would be ‘white Negroid’ ?

First off - we do not know what really happen. We only know what is being reported.

One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is how Freepers can write thousands of posts about the dishonesty and deception of the media, yet when a sensational and salacious story such as this breaks they accept it simply because their own experience makes it plausible. They simply ignore that cover stories are crafted for maximum plausibility.

As I posted earlier, I don't know any more than the rest of the posters, but this story just smells wrong and MY first inclination is to doubt. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

It may be just as described, but it also has a whiff of setting things up for a "purge" of the Secret Service and it's chain of command to replace them with people more personally loyal to Obama. IOW, his own Praetorians. We'll just have to wait and see.

This sorry episode only proves an old adage. Two organs in a man’s body require large quantites of blood to operate properly, one between the shoulders, the other between the legs. Many men do not have sufficient blood to operate both simultaneously, so when one starts operating, the other must necessarily shut down.

We have a relative who is in the business. There is no doubt the as the security services of SS and State have expanded and there are a lot more guys in the business the drinking and whoring have gotten bad. Plus fights etc. Most of it never is made public, but our relative thinks they should be dry when on assignment overseas, but then half might quit.

Nobody here seems to consider the most obvious explanation - that this was a covert op orchestrated by an enemy power (e.g. Cuba) to embarrass the U.S. and the Obama administration.

On the other hand, our enemies probably love Obama, so scratch that theory.
