Misconduct alleged against Obama's Secret Service agents on Colombia trip - Washington Times:

President Obama’s weekend trip to Colombia is being rocked by the disclosure that up to a dozen Secret Service agents there have been relieved of their duties amid allegations of misconduct with prostitutes.

As the scandal unfolded Saturday, the U.S. Southern Command announced that five U.S. military members also had been confined to quarters as a result of possible involvement in the incident. Gen. Douglas Fraser, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, said he is “disappointed by the entire incident and that this behavior is not in keeping with the professional standards expected of members of the United States military.”
