Obama says that he will be "angry" if scandals are true

| No Comments

As many as a dozen American secret service and military officers have been sent back to the United States from the Summit of Americas in Columbia for misconduct.

LA Times states that the misconduct has to do with the involvement of at least one agent with a prostitute. The agents were relieved of duty and replaced with new agents, according to a Secret Service spokesman.

LA Times reported that this happened prior to President Obama's arrival at the summit.

Obama spoke for the first time about this incident Sunday and said that he would be "angry" if these scandals were true, reported The Washington Post. "We are representing the people of the United States, and when we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards," he said.

Chairman of a House investigative panel, Californian Republican Darrell Issa told the Washington post that he is not sure whether Congress would hold hearings for the misconduct, but they will be looking "over the shoulder" of the Secret Service to make sure that the agency's methods for training and hiring agents are up to expectations.
