New Rules for Secret Service in Wake of Colombia Prostitution Scandal … No Booze, No Strip Clubs, No Hookers … No Kidding?
Wouldn’t one think that there were already a comprehensive policy of Ethics and Standards for the Secret Service?
In the wake of the Secret Service Colombia “hookergate” that has seen multiple agents dismissed and others reprimanded comes a supposed new enhanced standard of Ethics and Standards for Secret Service personnel. The recent Colombia Secret Service hooker scandal brought light on a glaring issue. However, like most scandals, this seems to be just the tip of the iceberg. There have since been reports of Secret Service misconduct in El Salvador (VIDEO).
Called Enhanced Standards of Conduct, the new guidelines given to all Secret Service personnel make clear that standards of behavior required in the United States apply on missions abroad, the sources said.
Effective immediately, the new standards require detailed briefings before each trip that will include safety precautions and any necessary designations of establishments and areas that are “off limits” for Secret Service personnel, the sources said.
Also in the new standards, foreigners are banned from Secret Service hotel rooms at all times, except for hotel staff and host nation law enforcement and government officials on official business, according to the officials, and all Secret Service personnel are prohibited from going to a “non-reputable establishment.”
Good grief, Secret Service agents need chaperones? Really, what is this a high school day trip?
One provision requires at least two senior supervisors — in essence, chaperones — for agents on some trips abroad.
“That certainly is something that’s new and surprising to see that, in effect, you’ll have somewhat of a chaperone … going to foreign countries with the agents,” O’Connell said. “I think the agents, for the most part, that have been doing their jobs for a long time, aren’t going to be affected by having somebody looking over their shoulder.”

Besides being disgusting, these secret service guys have a total lack of respect for this president…..hmmm wonder why.
There was a time in this journey called life that I felt so secure. All was right with the world. As per the saying … ignorance was truly bliss. Then during the maturing process I learned … my loving parents were fallible … other caring adults in my life were fallible … trusted friends were fallible and … our wonderful democractic system was fallible.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:11
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man (woman), I put childish ways behind me.
THE SOLID ROCK
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
Edward Mote 1797-1874
The only thing that has been pointed out already is that it is not fair to judge the entire agency by the actions of 12 or so individuals.
It really is an embarrassment, but I bet Slick Willy is a bit envious that he had to settle for Intern Monica Lewinsky when high class Columbian Prostitutes were being enjoyed by SS Agents. Just had to throw that in there.
