U.S. Secret Service agents recalled from Colombia for seeking hookers.

Adler said the entire unit was recalled for purposes of the investigation. The Secret Service “responded appropriately” and is “looking at a very serious allegation,” he said, adding that the agency “needs to properly investigate and fairly ascertain the merits of the allegations.”

The Washington Post was alerted to the investigation by Ronald Kessler, a former Post reporter and author of several nonfiction books, including the book “In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect.”

Kessler said he was told that a dozen agents had been removed from the trip. He added that soliciting prostitution is considered inappropriate by the Secret Service, even though it is legal in Colombia when conducted in designated “tolerance zones.” However, Kessler added, several of the agents involved are married.

2. They're the best of the best. Mostly.

Sometimes, things happen. Like that time in Dallas, when the guys who were supposed to be guarding President and Mrs. Kennedy went out for a good time.

That wasn't the worst thing someone in the Secret Service did that weekend.



Not this guy, though. Henry J. Rybka tried to do his job. And he registered dismay when ordered off the bumper at Love Field.
