Skip to comments.Members of elite Secret Service unit among those suspended in Colombia

Two Secret Service supervisors and three members of the agency's elite Counter-Assault Teams were among the 11 agents sent back from Colombia and placed on administrative leave over allegations that they brought prostitutes to their hotel rooms in Cartagena, law enforcement officials tell NBC News.
The involvement of Counter-Assault Team (CAT) members-- who are not members of the Uniformed Division, but full-fledged Secret Service agents -- ratchets up the seriousness of the incident, officials said. The heavily armed agents play a key role in protecting the president, serving as part of any presidential motorcade, usually a few cars back from the president's. Their responsibility is to "neutralize" any attack "as quickly as possible," according to the Secret Service website.
"Their job is to fend off a heavy assault on the motorcade to give POTUS a chance to flee to a safe locale," one law enforcement source familiar with the investigation told NBC News, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Did some someones see something they weren't supposed to see? Is this a preemptive strike?
Is barry-o back toot-ing up the blow?
Beautiful women aren't the only thing Columbia is famous for.
Actress Sophia Vigara....also called Sophia “Viagra” by some....is from Colombia.
I don’t like the TV show “Modern Family”....too many annoying liberal characters....but once in a while I’ll tune in to see Sophia Vigara....she is smoking hot.
If any of those Colombian ho’s looked anything like Sophia, then I can somewhat understand why these guys gave in to temptation and threw caution (and their pants) to the wind.
If you need further proof, go to BroBible.com. They have a pictorial spread of the 50 hottest Colombian Women.
You’ll thank me for the Davallos Twins and the Montoya Twins.
My good deed for the day is now complete.
I’m sure there are beautiful women anywhere, particularly among the crowd that make their living at being beautiful, so to speak.
Colombia is not that big a drug center anymore, so I don’t think it was blow.
If the SS group was indeed low-level, I’d suspect they just got out of control and unfortunately the press was standing by.
However, I recall reading a couple of years ago that Obama actually had non-Secret Service people protecting him (NOI? - they sure looked like it) and that the SS was very upset about this. So this may be an attempt to discredit the SS. Then again, it may be nothing.
If they do a thorough investiagtion they will probably learn that some of the hookers were underage kids.
Honestly, I don’t see what all the fuss is about...
Scandal related to 0bama administration? This is meant to have the “bribery and kickbacks” in the GSA story fall back to 4th page at the bottom, perhaps crowd out any ongoing coverage of Fast & Furious... just the media helping him out again.
I predict we will see a steady stream of such stories between now and November.
It is a smoke screen designed to hide stories of real corruption, fraud, abuse, and high crimes. Not to mention our staggering economic problems.
Notice the twist this AM where they had stories about 14 y/o sex slave hookers. Prurient speculation to get the viewers hooked.
