Air Force 1, Colombia, Cigars, Hookers, Angry wives;….. “Yeah, that Barack sure knows how to deliver a “war on women”….
Oh snap, it gets way worse. Reports now about how the story came out. Apparently the Secret Service did not pay all the hookers properly, so the Colombian authorities went to the State Department for reimbursement. The Hillary Clinton State Dept then contacted the Secret Service for confirmation before they released the funds.
You just knew there was gonna be a connection to a Clinton when you hear POTUS and Hookers in the same sentence.

COLOMBIA — The U.S. Secret Service is investigating allegations of misconduct by agents who had been sent to Cartagena, Colombia, to provide security for President Obama’s trip to a summit that began there Friday. (Hmm! Foxes guarding the hen house?!)
Edwin Donovan, an agency spokesman, said that an unspecified number of agents have been recalled and replaced with others, stressing that Obama’s security has not been compromised because of the change. Obama arrived in Cartagena on Friday afternoon for this weekend’s Summit of the Americas, a gathering of 33 of the hemisphere’s 35 leaders to discuss economic policy and trade.
Colombia gears up for Summit of the Americas: The coastal city of Cartagena, Colombia, will host leaders from the Western Hemisphere during the 6th Summit of the Americas on Saturday and Sunday.
Donovan declined to disclose details about the nature of the alleged misconduct. But Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, said the accusations relate to at least one agent having involvement with prostitutes in Cartagena.
In a statement, Donovan said the matter has been turned over to the agency’s Office of Professional Responsibility, which serves as the agency’s internal affairs unit.
“The Secret Service takes all allegations of misconduct seriously,” Donovan said. “These personnel changes will not affect the comprehensive security plan that has been prepared in advance of the President’s trip.”
Adler said the entire unit was recalled for purposes of the investigation. The Secret Service “responded appropriately” and is “looking at a very serious allegation,” he said, adding that the agency “needs to properly investigate and fairly ascertain the merits of the allegations.”. . .
Kessler said he was told that a dozen agents had been removed from the trip. He added that soliciting prostitution is considered inappropriate by the Secret Service, even though it is legal in Colombia when conducted in designated “tolerance zones.” However, Kessler added, several of the agents involved are married.

Now that’s how you screw the Colombians, Chicago style
NOTE: This appears to be another bad week for the president. Illegal Kenyan relative seeking "asylum" after living and working in the Boston area for over 20 years; Secret Service agents hanging with "ladies of the night", and let us not forget last week's meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington; ... the GOP should be able to create some terrific campaign videos for the 2012 elections. As Cheney says about Barry - "An unmitigated disaster to the country".
