Obama in Cabo, Secret Service Told to Behave
United States President Barack Obama is in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, meeting with world leaders during a G-20 summit. A large portion of the meetings are dedicated to discussing the European fiscal crisis and the future of Greece.
Press members attending the meeting soon noticed no Secret Service agents were staying in their hotels. Agents were allegedly sent emails before the trip to tell them to be on their best behavior. Agents were also told to attend mandatory training courses for a new set of guidelines during trips.
In April, Secret Service agents were involved in an incident with prostitutes while in Cartagena, Colombia. Since the incident, at least 12 agents have left their positions or have been reprimanded. The incident in Colombia has revealed a plethora of accusations including Secret Service agents abroad.
President Obama is expected to finish up with meetings and leave Mexico today, June 19th.
