Secret Service reels from prostitution scandal

(CBS News) President Obama says he wants a thorough investigation of a Secret Service scandal connected to his weekend visit to Colombia.

Nearly a dozen agents are in trouble, along with five members of the U.S. military.

The agents were in Colombia preparing for the president's trip when they were accused of hiring prostitutes.

It's been an embarrassment for the White House and the Secret Service.

Eleven members of the elite agency are now on administrative leave.

As Mr. Obama was wrapping up his trip Sunday, he called for a thorough and rigorous investigation.

"If it turns out," he said, "that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then, of course I'll be angry."

The focus at the news conference as he ended his two days in Cartagena was supposed to be on trade and security in Latin America.

Instead, the scandal engulfing the Secret Service remained in the spotlight.

"We're here on behalf of our people," the president said, "and that means that we conduct ourselves with the utmost dignity and probity and, obviously, what's been reported doesn't match up with those standards."

The allegations include reports of drinking and soliciting prostitutes Wednesday night at the Hotel Caribe.

The scandal broke open Thursday morning when an argument allegedly took place between one of the Secret Service officials and a woman who said she hadn't been paid.

Prostitution is legal in Colombia, but the concern is that the security of the president could have been compromised.

Members of Congress vowed to investigate.

"Whatever they do in their personal lives should not be done in Colombia, and should not be done when they're getting ready for the president of the United States to come in," said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. "Their job is to protect the president."

None of the Secret Service members were in the elite detail that protects the president. And officials said this incident was more about personal misconduct than it was an operation failure.

"They do very hard work under very stressful circumstances," said Mr. Obama, "and almost invariably, do an outstanding job."

Let there be a lesson learned from this. Pay dem h0's now or you gonna be paying dem big time later on.

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

I have never heard of anyone arguing with a Ukrainian prostitute over $47. Just sayin'

But when Bill Clinton did this, in the White House, with a 19 year old, it was "just sex" and none of our business. Strange. Why would this be different?

This despite the fact the infamous "Sparrow School" in Moscow taught Russian women to extract information using sex. Imagine that. You mean a married man placed in a position of sex scandal may release certain information rather than have a scandal? Who knew? The Sparrow School still operates as a private business to train prostitutes and other women who simply want to be the best at sex.

I would say "Who cares"? It is just sex.

No big deal. The "wheels down/rings off" activities have been a well known part (and some might say a perk) of overseas government TDY as long as I can remember.

If they had been gay male prostitutes it would be OK. Typical war on women from Dems. Deny women the choice to be prostitutes but use them for such and refuse to pay them!

I am guessing they were arguing over who was going to pay for her birth control!
