Secret Service Agents in Obama's Detail Sent Home After Boozy Night

Three Secret Service agents in charge of protecting President Obama in Amsterdam were sent home Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, sources familiar with the incident told NBC News.

One of the agents was found intoxicated in a hotel hallway Sunday morning by hotel security, who contacted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands, the sources said.

The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip.

The agents were put on administrative leave but have not faced any other disciplinary action, the sources said.

Secret Service officials insist that they have raised their standards and toughened the codes of conduct following a scandal in Cartagena, Colombia, in April 2012. That's when a dozen agents and officers had gone out, drank heavily and then brought prostitutes to their hotel rooms prior to the presidentís arrival.

Obama landed in the Netherlands on Monday for a week of diplomacy in Europe and Saudi Arabia.

Nice going guys..you would figure after that 2012 scandal they would wise up. Most likely they will keep their jobs and given a medal for a job beyond the call of duty.

What's wrong with these people? The SS is suppose to be "The best of the best". They're acting like a college fraternity. Maybe it has something to do with the level of respect they have for the one they're protecting. In which case I'd go out and get drunk too.

Yeah look at Michelle's private trip to China..boat load of security, vanguard of cars. no press and a open credit card..something like the tune of $10-15 million dollars. I think we the taxpayers should send her a bill..both of them spending like drunken sailors on OUR dime.
