  • Secret Service agent found drunk; three sent home

    Three agents who were in the Netherlands ahead of President Obama as protection detail were sent home after hotel staff found one drunk and unconscious.

    Three Secret Service agents guarding President Barack Obama in the Netherlands were sent home Sunday after a night spent drinking, media reports said. One agent was discovered drunk and unconscious in a hallway by staff at an Amsterdam hotel, the Washington Post reported Wednesday . The incident happened before the arrival of Obama on Monday for a nuclear-security summit in The Hague, as well as talks with world leaders on Russia and the Crimean crisis. The Secret Service reportedly confirmed that three Counter Assault Team agents have been put on administrative leave and returned to the U.S. for "disciplinary reasons". The agency has been working to repair its image after earlier scandals; in 2013, two members of the president's security detail were accused of sexual harassment, and in 2012, agents working in Colombia were dismissed after allegations they visited prostitutes.

    Looks like the pride taken with the job has fallen, well since 2008. What other event coincides with that? Hmm...

      Respect for the job, respect for your boss and respect for your country, the inmates in charge of the Obama asylum.

          Clearly a lack of governmental oversight and regulation. If only the feds had more money to spend, things like this would never happen.

            I'd have to be near-comarose drunk to willingly catch a bullet for that empty suit.

              Well it would be wrong to fire them. What they really need is several layers of (also non-terminable) managerial leash-holders to life coach them up on workplace appropriateness.

                We need promises to get to the bottom of the problem and hold absolutely nobody accountable.

                  Maybe they've taken to searching the unemployment rolls for the recently divorced or something.

                  First federal jobs program that might make some sense.

                    It's raining today where I live. Also clearly Obama's fault.

                    Seriously, y'all can't possibly be this stupid. Can you?

                      Yes. There is no depth of stupidity to which certain individuals here cannot reach.

                            Don't worry in about 50 yrs the liberals will declare they won the war on global warming. People will remind them co2 levels are higher but they won't care. The Earth will not have warmed, they will have won.
