UPDATE 3: Brother Duff's provocative speculation aside, this looks more and more like a four-way goat-fest. 1) Idiot prostitute tried for $800 instead of the customary $60-80. 2) Secret Service cherub lost it. 3) Colombian police were not at all cool. 4) CIA fixer was asleep. Journalists are after the Secret Service “racist bitch” that may have made all of this much much worse, her identity should be public knowledge by the week-end.
Two Secret Service agents ousted over scandal identified
UPDATE 2: Party line is that this was a wicked party that violated no local laws but was a breach of expected professional as well as personal ethics, with 20-21 women being involved (at the Colombian rate for gringos, $60 each). It defies belief that one of the US personnel would be dumb enough to stiff the Colombia prostitute (pun intended) and allow the situation to get to the point that the police were called. There is more to this story not yet in the public domain. Congress is raising legitimate questions about counter-intelligence vulnerabilities, but since Congressional delegations are notorious for precisely the same sort of behavior, one has to wonder where this will end up. We do have to wonder at just how stupid a Secret Service person has to be to register a hooker for the night and then not pay her. Had they been nurse-maided by CIA, there would have been no records, no price disagreements, and no blowback. Meanwhile, GSA is taking a hit for $830,000 in fiesta expenses. ” It's the culture, stupid.”

UPDATE 1: From inside the Secret Service, a lot of attention being cast on a female member of the presidential detail who is a “rascist bitch” and has been looking for a way to lash out at Obama…..along with serious concerns that there really is a plot that their and US counterintelligence missed. (US CI is practically non-existent–NSA does NOT “really” change its priorities for a Presidential visit prior to or during; nor are threats against the President a national intelligence collection priority). So this makes three scenarios: real plot missed by US CI and discovered by Colombian CI, not US CI; political theater with the detail being unwitting dupes; and internal break-down of both screening and discipline. We wait with bated breath–meanwhile, White House continues to cover up US unemployment and job losses; morally and intellectually challenged Secretary of the Treasury; the Japanese melt-down (pun intended); and other failures.
Assassination Colombia – What If It Ain’t About Whores?
Was Presidential Detail Penetrated by an Assassin?
by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
Cartagena, Colombia (VT) The story, one a child wouldn’t believe, is that our Secret Service and Army advance teams, those that arrange for presidential security, were arrested for failing to pay one or more whores for “services rendered.”
The real deal is very probably this:
At least one of the members of the presidential detail is suspected of working with foreign nationals to arrange the assassination of President Obama.
A certain nation comes to mind, one very close to former Governor Romney, the GOP candidate hopelessly behind in the polls, a candidate belonging to a religion seen as a dangerous sect, a candidate hated by most American women and women vote.
Phi Beta Iota: Joe Biden is the Trilateral and Goldman Sachs owns the Treasury and the corner office reserved for the National Security Advisor. The assassination of Obama would elevate Biden to Sacred Cow status, and despite his many public gaffes, virtually assure “continuity of operations” and not having to deal with the Romney-Bush crime families up close. HOWEVER, there is an even chance that this is a covert operation intended to be “leaked” as a pump for political theater. The Caribe Hotel is now the “service” hotel in Cartagena, the wealthy go to the Hilton and other new hotels on the man-made peninsula that put the Caribe out of business. The Israeli government cannot be ignored. From the USS Liberty on, they have been very comfortable murdering US citizens and US officials when it suits them to do so; they are well-entrenched in Latin America, and Colombia may be–outside of Guatemala–the single most hospitable southern nation for an Israeli false flag hit on a US President. We are certain the Secret Service has not done its religious counterintelligence homework on its own staff–which is probably as penetrated by Mormons and Jews as are the FBI and CIA. On balance, the Colombian government appears to have been totally professional and on top of its game. The Colombian government knows the truth; the Secret Service and White House know the truth — We the People will not know the truth for some time. The eternal question remains relevant: cui bono?
