ABC Exclusive: Secret Service Bragged About Protecting Obama While Partying At Colombian Brothel
ABC News ^ | Tuesday, April 17, 2012 | Reena Ninan, Christine Romo and Mary Bruce

Posted on 04/17/2012 9:28:13 AM PDT by kristinn

CARTAGENA, Colombia — ABC News has learned exclusively that the Secret Service officials accused of misconduct in Colombia revealed their identities by boasting at a Cartagena brothel that they worked for President Obama.

Partying at the “Pley Club” Wednesday night, eleven members of the president’s advance team allegedly bragged “we work for Obama” and “we’re here to protect him.”

The officials spent the night throwing back expensive whiskey and enlisting the services of the club’s prostitutes, according to a bouncer at the club and a police source.

Sources tell ABC News several of the men agreed to pay for, and received, services from the “highest category” prostitutes available at the club, who charge upwards of $200.

The men paid for the sexual services in advance but when it came time to settle the bill, there was a dispute over the charges.

The group became belligerent and the police were called. The argument between the officials and the bouncers from the club escalated and ultimately spilled onto the street, according to several eye witness accounts.

(Video report at link worth watching. Includes visit to club and mention that up to 20 U.S. military from all four branches involved, bringing number of U.S. personnel involved up to 31.)

>>”Laptops and phones were stolen and are now in the hands of foreign agents.”

>That is a GREAT theory!!!!!!

Yeah, I’m guessing Hugo Chavez arranged it with money from Russia/China and maybe Iran. Chavez and Iran want the SS info for poss. attack on the President and details about SS security protocol to increase their own security detail.

Russia/China want the military computers/smart phones to check military encryption and any possible stuff they can glean.

Anyone can guess that these scantily clad women were sent to the rooms under some other reason. They probably had 10 go to the rooms and 10 try to fish guys back to the brothel. They got the SS liquored up, and the guys did what any other guy did before sex (emptied his pockets of his smart phone and left his laptop against the wall). The guys woke up with a bunch of Columbian police with some girls shouting that they weren’t paid, they were beaten, or threatened with guns.

The guys who went to the brothel stripped and had their smartphones taken by the girl serving the liquor. The men were stripped of their security clearances because THEY WERE STRIPPED OF THEIR PHONES/LAPTOPS.

Were they staying at the Caribe on their dime or the Government's dime.

If they were at the Caribe on the Government's dime then they are still on duty. They are still representing the Government even though they are off assignment.

What other ways are there to shame the nation? Could elite dems dress the Statue of Liberty in an outfit making her look like a hooker?

Or maybe...

Run Blackhawks over Chicago - citizen-intimidation of the kind Louis Farrakhan would dream up (if he had any power) - or some North Korean despot...

Clinton did tacky - but not on this level... He was never able to pull down the Secret Service to a ‘liberal elite’ level.

What’s next?

Hopefully, the government has an “auto-brick” code built into the OS so that anytime a designated DNS from a gov’t laptop or phone shows up, the OS goes into a false operation mode or something that looks like a memory freeze while the HD is 1 and 0 scanned several times.

They better have something like that because if they don’t, they’re asking for incidents like this.

Yes, I feel sorry for all involved. What a self inflicted mess! I cannot imagine how the USSS feels about this. I'd be heartbroken but furious at the same time. And the families....how do you go home knowing what you did? Crap! Start crawling and beg for forgiveness over time....

They don’t seem very bright. Its not rocket science here. Did they actually walk into a bordello and BRAG about how they work for the President? The minute they said that,,, the prices doubled. In a way, it kinda proves their innocence overall. Rookie mistake,,,, probably arrived in a luxury car too.
Those women can smell money better than a dog looking for dope.

So overall, the agents walked in and said, ‘Hey,,, big money here,,, and I work in a job where we have to keep it really secret,,,, ‘

I doubt it would be Israel, Israel knows that Obama’s out in 7 months anyway. However, I would guess that if this were Mossad, they’d make their money work harder and send the hookers to EVERY attendee there. Might as well get as much as you can. It really is fascinating because I seriously doubt that these guys would have their security clearances revoked unless they were looking for SECURITY ID’S THAT WERE UNCLEARED TO POP UP TRYING TO ACCESS GOVERNMENT SERVERS.

It really is sad if this is true. People in Washington like the lala world they live in - all of our enemies can somehow become our friends if we just try hard enough, and all of the US citizen can be declared enemies if they don’t espouse the Democrat party line.

Assuming this is true, are these guys nuts? Why didn't they just wear T-shits with a Bull's Eye painted on them? Did it ever occur to them that members of one of the Columbiam drug cartels would love to whack a few of these guys just to prove they could?

We have other professionals living on the Taxpayer’s Dime, a.k.a. congresscritters, who enrich themselves with insider trading practices and whose decisions affect people’s lives much more than than those made by some wayward SS agents.

When our disgusting CongressCritters screw the pooch, the President is not at risk. If the USSS screws the pooch, the POTUS may die.

This is not about some Private First Class Soldiers having the times of their lives. This is about a once upon a time very professional elite agency that has the lives of the First Family in their hands. So get serious. You are not at the playground anymore.

“Putin/Hugo/Castro “

....and Farrakhan? He sure has been blasting someone(s) have not lived up to the brothers. Sounded like someone was in for a world of pain. Someone who had turned on his people while grubbing money.

Could this be related to prostitute thing? Obama will most likely get new agents but maybe they won't be the best agents.

Something is going on in the background; I smell a patsy or patsies - the SS and military partiers? Farrakhan speech was very incendiary.

I’m now thinking along the same lines. Maybe a bad thing was intentionally set up and not to be wasted. (I can never forget how that line goes!).

But, after hearing Farrakhan’s speech, I’m not sure if this is something to help BO or not.

300 million people are worth more than one POTUS who can easily be replaced.

This story smells from day one. What these men did and what they reportedly said is so far beyond the pale of their responsibilities that I cannot believe it is true. Not just the lack of decorum, but the entire jeopardizing of the tenets of even basic security was violated.

I totally agree with you. I can't even imagine that these are the same type of SS agents who would have taken a bullet for Reagan.
