Secret Service Sex Scandal Not Just "Boys Being Boys"--They Put the Leader of the Free World at Risk
That nearly a dozen secret service agents were involved in a prostitution scandal in Colombia, unfortunately, is not just some case of "boys being boys." This is one of the lapses in consciousness that can get somebody--somebody very important like the president of United States---kidnapped or killed.
