    State Department accused of covering up sex and prostitution investigation

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. State Department’s ability to investigate wrongdoing by its staff is under question after a report that the agency tried to cover up several crimes committed has surfaced.

    Some of the allegations are against then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail who allegedly hired prostitutes, a U.S. ambassador accused of trolling public parks for paid sex and a security official in Beirut committing sexual assaults on foreign nationals.


    An internal memo from the State Department’s inspector general listed eight examples of wrongdoing by agency staff or contractors.


    The memo also seems to indicate that the government agency tried to use its authority to stop the investigation and instead, opting to have the official, whose name has not been released, meet with Undersecretary of State
    for Management Patrick Kennedy in Washington. The official was then allowed to return to his job overseas...

    According to the memo first obtained by CBS News, four members of Clinton’s security detail received one-day suspensions.

    This is getting ridiculous. Thoughts?

    Well, all I can say is finally this is all coming to light just how corrupt our current administration really is.

    I was taught to raise my hand and admit when I did something inappropriate or wrong. It's worked well all of my life. Washington, DC? Notsomuch.

    The transparency claims were taken out of context. What they were actually referring to was that the American PEOPLE would become more transparent to the government. Not the other way around. Recent events have revealed that this is indeed the case...

    I'm losing count.

    I think that's their strategy. Overwhelm us with so much corruption and scandals that we get tired heads and fall over in mental exhaustion.

    It's plausible given the Secret Service Scandal a while back.

    I'm not at all surprised by this. When the Secret Service prostitution scandal in Columbia was silenced so quickly last year I had a strong suspicion that there was more to the story.

    I would say that the shine is definitely coming off the apple and that this administration which was being treated like rock stars is finally being exposed.......as rock stars.

    We Americans have a habit of building this facade of genius and benevolence around popular figures. Inevitably it is chipped off and exposed for what it really is.
