President Obama responded to the scandal that has rocked the Secret Service over allegations that agents were caught in the company of prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia.
“If it turns out some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then, of course, I’ll be angry because my attitude with respect to Secret Service personnel is no different than what I expect out of my delegation sitting here,” Obama said in response to the incident.
“We represent the United States,” Obama acknowledged. “When we travel to another country, I expect them to observe the highest standards because we’re not just representing ourselves. We’re here on behalf of our people and that means we conduct ourselves with the utmost dignity and probity and obviously what’s been reported does not match up with those standards.”
“I’ll wait until the full investigation is completed until I pass final judgment,” Obama concluded.
