    Can't believe no one else has posted on this yet.

    Think maybe it's time for Secret Service Director, Mark Sullivan, a hold-over Bush appointee, to move on?

    I mean, first there was that little matter of Reality Show Wanna-be's crashing a state dinner party and managing not only to party hearty without being detected - but to walk right up to President Obama and get a picture with him - and now this?

    A sex/prostitution scandal in a foreign country while they are there on the tax-payer's dime? Supposedly there for the purpose of protecting the president? Not just one or two agents - but ELEVEN agents and 5 members of the US military!! And caught over what I have just heard described on television as a dispute between 2 of the agents and a hooker over a whopping $47.00 bill.

    I have also heard, again on the televison and do not have print media back-up, that these were not just ordinary, low-level agents but that 2 of them held supervisory positions and 5 of them were special op.

    Could they possibly be that stupid??? Are they merely 11 renegade agents or is there some wide-spread discipline problem in The Secret Service? Or is it more sinister than that and protecting Obama just isn't considered a priority by the Director and the attitude, like sh!t, flows downhill?

    If the charges are true then the people involved should lost their jobs and pensions. In the case of the military people court marshals and dishonorable discharges would be in order.

    As to Sullivan losing his civil service job (not patronage appointment), that would be appropriate. They (the administration) have to be careful since the spurned agents may have tales to tell about the CiC and his activities with his boys when he send Michelle out town of on her many vacations. So if this is hushed up or the agents are protected you will know why.

    The Director of the Secret Service is an appointed position. Sorry.

    If that is the case then Clinton appointed him to the Assistant in 1999 that positioned Bush to put him in the top job. I would refer you to his bio at the SS website.

    Not sure why you are trying to make this a partisan issue. The issue is his performance.

    The US is truly an ugly american abroad, and it is no wonder so many people hate us.. this scandal along with many others, only serve to cast us all in a negative light.

    During the Bosnia foray, Dyncorp was actively involved in the sex trade of young women and when exposed it was swept under the rug.. and dyncorp continues to get government contracts.. without ever being held accountable.

    There are a litany of transgressions that we as a country commit under our flag, and nothing is ever addressed so why bother..

    This is one of a string of serious incidents, and bet you nothing much happens here either..

    Ain't that the truth....however I doubt this will add much more than embarrassment to the sentiments about us abroad.

    After we blew up the Chinese Embassy in Kosovo in 99' "I was a Canadian" for the remainder of my time in Indo because "Americans were bad".

    There have been times that I have been traveling in small towns in the Yucatan, and early in the morning see drunk American kids out driving in Jeeps jeering and making sexual comments to Mexican women, who for the most part are not only beautiful, but very modest.

    We cast a bad shadow across the world...

    And when I get there I will find exactly nothing to confirm what you've just said.

    Fact is, The Assistant Deputy Position is an internally assigned one - only the Deputy Director is appointed.


    DHS | Director, United States Secret Service Mark J. Sullivan

    I took a lesson from the thread on The Mommy Wars. Some reporter with the flimsiest of ties to the Democrat Party suddenly becomes the spokesperson supreme for all Democrats - including the President. I figured, hey, two can play at this game......

    I mean, if you can take a CNN political pundit and falsely turn her into an "Obama advisor, they " I can certainly, truthfully, take a political appointee and mention who appointed him.

    Imagine having 10 exquisitely trained killing machines furious at you for ruining their lives. This is what that one moron agent who wouldn't pay gets to look forward to.

    Who would have thought the GSA could teach the Secret Service anything? You just know though that if there were any hookers at the GSA party they would have been paid twice.
