President Barack Obama’s visit to Colombia is making more headlines for Secret Service agents’ scandal than his meeting with the regional leaders. To be true his meetings and important deliberations on drugs and bilateral relations with different leaders have failed to excite public.
What everyone seems to be talking about and more eager to known are more and more details about President Obama’s Secret Service agents’ sexual exploits in a country where sex sells like everything else. And the highly trained agents who wear best clothes seem to have pounded on the idea with their ruthless might.
At least 11 agents who were part of the entourage of President Obama and were tasked with his security have been sent back home with immediate effect. Meanwhile with men interested more in sexual escapades, reports suggest that more women agents have been deployed to keep President secure. These female secret agents known for their beauty and brain besides their fighting skills are well versed in Spanish and so more suited to take care of Presidential security.
The reports of secret service agents could have never been leaked, had it not been the very irresponsible attitude of an agent who brought one prostitute in his room and kept him there for long. He didn’t get the name of prostitute registered with the hotel and this caused an alarm.
Meanwhile US officials have admitted to the misconduct of the officials. A press release expressed anger over bad conduct of the officials saying, “may have been involved in inappropriate conduct…The conduct is alleged to have occurred in the same hotel where the recalled United States Secret Service agents were staying.”
A top official of secret service assured that it, “had no impact on the Secret Service’s ability to execute a comprehensive security plan for the President’s visit to Cartagena…This incident is not reflective of the behavior of our personnel as they travel every day throughout the country and the world performing their duties in a dedicated, professional manner…We regret any distraction from the Summit of the Americas this situation has caused.”
Meanwhile people are interpreting the incident in their own ways. A reader has this to say, “Smoke and mirrors. I doubt this is real or if it is, its a setup. Obama and the DEA want to draw attention away from the topic being discussed at the summit which is the legalization of drugs in Latin American countries that reap hundreds of thousands of deaths due to the failed US war on drugs and these countries want no more deals with the US”.
