It looks like five members of the U.S. military have been caught up in the unfolding prostitution scandal involving members of the Secret Service startioned in Columbia. The full statement from U.S. Southern Command:
MIAMI - United States Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM) announces April 14 that five U.S. service members assigned to Joint Task Force Summit of the Americas in support of the United States Secret Service violated the curfew established by the United States Senior Defense Official in Colombia and may have been involved in inappropriate conduct. The conduct is alleged to have occurred in the same hotel where the recalled United States Secret Service agents were staying.
The personnel are currently in Colombia but confined to quarters and under orders not to have contact with other individuals. They will return to the United States with the rest of the support contingency at the conclusion of the mission.
Gen. Douglas Fraser, Commander of USSOUTHCOM, said that he is "disappointed by the entire incident and that this behavior is not in keeping with the professional standards expected of members of the United States military." He went on to say that after a thorough investigation, punishment, if appropriate, will take place in accordance with established policies and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
