Obama: I'll be angry if agent scandal is true By: Josh Gerstein April 15, 2012 06:21 PM EDT

CARTAGENA, Colombia — President Barack Obama said Sunday he will be “angry” if there’s truth to reports that Secret Service personnel patronized prostitutes ahead of his visit to an international summit meeting here.

“If it turns out some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then, of course, I’ll be angry because my attitude with respect to Secret Service personnel is no different than what I expect out of my delegation sitting here,” Obama said in his first public comments on the incident that occurred at a Cartagena hotel last week.

“We represent the United States. When we travel to another country, I expect them to observe the highest standards because we’re not just representing ourselves. We’re here on behalf of our people and that means we conduct ourselves with the utmost dignity and probity and obviously what’s been reported does not match up with those standards,” Obama said at a joint news conference with the summit’s host, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

The episode involving Secret Service and members of the military has cast an embarrassing shadow over Obama’s weekend trip to an international summit meeting involving more than 30 leaders from throughout the Americas. Obama said Sunday he expects the Secret Service’s investigation of the incident to be “thorough” and “rigorous.”

The incident also sucked much of the attention away from the rest of the summit, including discussions of the future of Cuba relations, the situation in Iran, drug de-criminalization and even new tensions over the Falkland Islands.

Sounds like Obama’s ploy worked just fine.

He’s just angry they got caught.

They are just following the example the left has set for them. Sluts Inc, a subsidiary of the Obama Admin.

So, they shuld have apologized to the prostitutes and bowed down to them and it would be OK? It's the Obama way.

Sounds like the Secret Service and military have lost respect for the dear leader. These guys know weakness when they see it and they are not respecting him any longer.

I don’t recall this ever happening with any other president.

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.
