Cartagena made famous by Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, is about to get more publicity in all the wrong ways. While Jewel of the Nile involved government, scandal, and intrigue, it was a movie plot and exaggerated for our entertainment. The real-life scandal brewing involves 11 secret service agents to the President of the United States of America, and most are/were married. Those statuses, on both counts, could change shortly. There are clauses in the security clearances that were broken, for obvious reasons. Married security servicemen could become victims of blackmail as a result of interludes with prostitutes…imagine? No, probably best we don't; however, these men were acting in a fashion unbecoming security agents, in the first place, and placed themselves and their country in jeopardy.
It’s impossible to be honest about this story without mentioning that it is no wonder the men protecting the POTUS may be under-qualified, because the POTUS (himself) could not pass a security test to be his own secret service agent. The men who serve as security for the little dick-tater are probably suffering from the lackluster effects of the man they are hired to protect. The POTUS lies, ignores the laws of this land, insults his country, and shows great disdain for our allies. Is it any wonder these men see nothing wrong in breaking their own security agreements? Not really!
The only thing that is truly surprising is that it has taken this long for one or more of his men to screw up in such a manner as to have the press in another country “Up in Arms” over behavior exhibited by the POTUS and his security detail. One can only hope that none of the 11 men accompanying the POTUS on this trip were assigned to his daughter’s spring break in Mexico.
First, we had Republicans abusing women. Next, we had the Trayvon Martin case, and now; we have Agents Gone Wild in Columbia. One can only wonder what will be next to keep Obama’s record out of the news until after the elections, much less the fact that the man doesn’t qualify to be a presidential candidate, which the media would have to report if they weren’t supplied so many distractions.
