Secret Service Misconduct
April 16, 2012 by staff
Secret Service Misconduct, The number of U.S. military members under investigation for alleged misconduct at a Colombia hotel on the eve of President Barack Obama’s visit over the weekend may be greater than the five originally cited, officials said Monday.
Pentagon press secretary George Little said Monday that he could not provide a specific number, but that military members who are being investigated were assigned to support the U.S. Secret Service in preparation for Obama’s official visit to Cartagena. He said they were not directly involved in presidential security. “We believe that there may be more than five involved in this incident,” Little said.
The Secret Service sent 11 of its agents home from Colombia amid allegations that they had hired prostitutes at a Cartagena hotel. The military members being investigated were staying at the same hotel, Little said.
Army Col. Scott Malcom, chief spokesman for U.S. Southern Command, which organized the military team that was assigned to support the Secret Service’s mission in Cartagena, declined to say how many additional service members are under investigation. He also would not say which branch of the military they were from.
