…it may as well be in Amsterdam!
The Secret Service sent three agents home from the Netherlands just before President Barack Obama’s arrival after one agent was found
totally wasted inebriated in the hallway of an Amsterdam hotel.
You’d think after the Colombian Prostitute Scandal the boys would wise UP!
After that little dust UP, our taxpayer dollars were used to write a 145-page report. Issued late last year by the Homeland Security Department inspector general, it determined there was no evidence of widespread misconduct within the Secret Service.
Following the South American prostitution scandal, the agency put new procedures in place, including a ban on bringing foreign nationals to hotel rooms where agents and officers are staying, which, BTW, anyone smart enough to get a job protecting the President would know!
According to The Washington Post, the agents sent home from Amsterdam were placed on administrative leave.
On the flip side, they were on their own time and the POTUS wan’t even in town – yet!
Is it a ‘boys will be boys’ thing, the high pressure of standing between the big guy and a bullet, are these left overs from the Clinton administration, or have they just hired a bunch of frat boys?
And, is it really that big of a black eye for the US?
But, again, I must say, “If you’re gonna get drunk and pass out in a hotel hallway, I can’t think of a better place than Amsterdam!”
