In a major embarrassment for Washington at the Summit of the Americas attended by more than 30 heads of state, 11 U.S. Secret Service agents were sent home and five military servicemen grounded over “misconduct” allegations in a hotel.
Prostitutes were taken to the hotel, according to a Colombian police source.
But, umm, why is this a scandal?
Every town in the US has tarts that will call in to visiting businessmen at their hotels. Why is the existence of the same in Latin America scandalous?
And surely no one at all thinks that “military personnel” never take advantage of those services at home?
