Congressman Pete King, the Republican chairman of
he House Committee on Homeland Security, calls the
scandal involving prostitutes in Colombia “the worst moment in the
history of the Secret Service.” He’s wrong about that, writes
Ira Stoll. The worst moment in the history of the Secret Service
was November 22, 1963, the day John F. Kennedy was shot and killed.
It was the first and only time since the Secret Service was put
fully in charge of protecting the president in 1902 that a
president was assassinated.
The chairman of a House panel looking into allegations of misconduct by U.S. Secret Service agents last month in Colombia says he sees no need to meet with one of the prostitutes at the center of the scandal.
