The Not-So-Secret “Secret Service” Busted in Columbia

Last week, almost a dozen Secret Service agents were placed on administrative leave, after allegations the men brought prostitutes into their hotel rooms during the presidential summit in Cartagena, Columbia. Apparently, the Secret Service men were busted after one of their agents argued with a Columbian prostitute over her $47 fee. The agents sent to protect President Obama and who stayed at the hotel, during their stay, were apparently drinking heavily during the day and partying at night. The activities of the Secret Service agents could have exposed President Obama to potential assassination attempts and may have resulted in blackmail of the agents, as many of the agents are married in the United States. President Obama has reserved decision pending the conclusion of his investigation into the alleged acts of the Secret Service. However, it is evident that what happens in Columbia definitely does not stay in Columbia. Obama said to reporters, “I expect that investigation to be thorough and to be rigorous. If it turns out that some of the allegations made in the press are confirmed, then of course I’ll be angry.”
