Fox News:
The Secret Service has revoked the security clearances for the 11 agents accused of misconduct over a prostitution scandal in Colombia -- as the Pentagon looks at broadening its own investigation into the incident, which the top U.S. military official calls an embarrassment.
The fallout from the alleged misconduct has spread across both the Secret Service and the U.S. military. On the Secret Service side, a senior law enforcement official confirmed to Fox News that all 11 who were recalled and placed on administrative leave have had their clearances revoke. The official added that among the 11 are two supervisors and three members of the counter-assault team, indicating that senior officials are involved.
The incident late last week not only overshadowed President Obama's visit to Colombia but has raised troubling security questions. Some lawmakers have said agents could have been compromised, or opened themselves to blackmail, because of their actions.
Obama said Sunday he would be "angry" if the allegations turn out to be true. Defense officials said Monday they, too, were "embarrassed" by the role of military personnel.
"I can speak for myself and ... my fellow chiefs, we're embarrassed by what occurred in Colombia," Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a news conference. "Several of our members distracted the issue from what was a very important regional engagement for our president."

Starts at the top. Only under a 'leader' like Obama could an organization of international fame fall into disrepair.

This is very true. Corporate culture flows down from the top. Can you imagine this kind of thing happening under GW Bush or his father. The surprising thing is that it didn't happen under Clinton. Maybe all the hookers were already booked.
