You would think that by all the hue and cry coming from all corners that the U.S. Secret Service raped, pillaged, plundered, sodomized and ripped the tags off their mattresses to break laws down there in Columbia.
Now boys will be boys as the testosterone flies but this is not Tailhook or sexual harrasment.One day before they were to be briefed and two days before President Hipster was to arrive in Columbia the SS boys and some military personnel decided to have some fun and blow off some steam by consorting with prostitutes which is a LEGAL profession in Columbia by the way for you Pollyannas out there.
Unless someone comes up with a plot out of an Austin Powers movie where the SS agents were going to have their brains transplanted with a mind control chip or they had perfect body doubles of them with killer robot brains to take the Presidents life, everyone just calm down and stop getting your panties in a wringer.
The boys did not break any laws, did not harm anyone and other than one of them who obviously was the stupid one and decided not to pay for his hooker so she started wailing like a whore in church singing Amazing Grace, and the cat was out of the proverbial bag.
The feces hit the fan and the media mongers started chumming the waters with “investigations”. Now we have SS director Mark Sullivan and Senator Susan Collins of Maine, the senior Republican on the Homeland Security committee looking into an investigation.
So some of the boys will take early retirement, some will transfer, some will be deployed elsewhere, the investigators will beat their chest that they cleaned up the service and boys will continue to be boys.
In case you think I am being lenient on the boys, I hope they were single because if they were married then they deserve to spend eternity in a shopping mall carrying the little woman’s purse while they make sure the mother in law has all her necessities met.
