    I don't even understand what the problem is here. They did nothing illegal.

    So you don't think that the President's Secret Service detail should be above reproach? That it's okay they engage in conduct that would make them susceptible to blackmail? That it's okay to let a protected space be infiltrated with prostitutes...who may or may not be prostitutes? Who may have other agendas? Ridiculous.

    I don't see anything wrong with using prostitutes.

    That it's okay they engage in conduct that would make them susceptible to blackmail?
    Blackmail for what? They did nothing illegal. Other than their wives, if they're married, who would care?

    That it's okay to let a protected space be infiltrated with prostitutes...who may or may not be prostitutes? Who may have other agendas?
    That should be a problem no matter who they bring into protected space. Is that what they did? Bring unauthorized persons into protected space?

    Would I be guilty of overstating the obvious were I to remind you that there are some perfectly agreeable gentlemen who would be quite willing to offer their services gratis?

    I don't either, except when one is expected to protect the POTUS and secure a hotel.

    Blackmail for what? They did nothing illegal. Other than their wives, if they're married, who would care?
    Blackmail for violating their contract of employment. And, of course, blackmail if they're married.

    That should be a problem no matter who they bring into protected space. Is that what they did? Bring unauthorized persons into protected space?
    They were there to secure the space for the POTUS' visit. And, yes, it should be a problem no matter who they bring into that protected space.

    I guess I could have phrased that differently, huh?

    There isn't enough information on the layout and what parts of it were sealed off or what parts were still open to the public, so I can't really comment any further at this time. If they really did bring in unauthorized persons into the secured areas, I'm sure they'll be disciplined accordingly.

    This did not place Obama in danger and there were military personnel poking around as well. This situation sucks for these guys....

    the U.S. military said five service members may also have participated in the alleged misconduct.

    The 11 Secret Service agents accused of soliciting prostitutes were put on leave and Obama offered regret over the incident overshadowing his diplomatic mission to Latin America.

    The military service members were confined to their quarters in Colombia and ordered not to have contact with others.

    All the alleged activities took place before Obama arrived Friday in this Colombian port city for meetings with 33 other regional leaders.

    Put together, the allegations were an embarrassment for an American president on foreign soil and threatened to upend White House efforts to keep his trip focused squarely on boosting economic ties with fast-growing Latin America. Obama was holding two days of meetings at the Summit of the Americas with leaders from across the vast region before heading back to Washington Sunday night.

    Do they even go into their house or do they simple leave their housekey on the doormat and go to their new digs at Motel 8.
