More Concerns About Obama’s Security [VIDEO]
President Barack Obama arrived Tuesday in Afghanistan on the anniversary of the killing of Osama Bin Laden, it was supposed to be a secret, but news of the trip leaked out hours earlier, raising new concerns about the president’s security.
The Afghan news station TOLONews reported early Tuesday that Obama had arrived in Kabul, hours before the White House’s embargo was lifted. Other news organizations also carried the report attributed to unnamed Afghan officials.
The National Security Council and the U.S. Embassy in Kabul both initially denied the report, and Obama’s official schedule indicated that he was still in Washington.
Former President’s including George W. Bush wouldn’t tell reporters in advance where they were going. This all comes on the heels of an investigation on how the U.S. Secret Sevice interacted with prostitutes in Columbia in advance of the president’s recent visit.
And a new report this morning that one of the agent’s has Western New York ties.
The Daily News reported that Arthur Huntington, the agent who allegedly refused to pay the prostitute the $800 she said was her rate, attended Roberts Wesleyan College in Chili. A list of “Key Alumni” on the college website includes “U.S. Secret Service – Arthur Huntington.”
