Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 12, 2014

Top Secret Service officials ordered agents away from their posts patrolling the White House perimeter in 2011 to check on a personal friend and assistant of the agency's former director. The Secret Service agents were diverted to monitor a rural residence outside La Plata, Maryland, nearly a one-hour drive from Washington. Agents were told that then-Director Mark Sullivan was concerned his assistant, Lisa Chopey, was being harassed by her neighbor. They were sent to monitor the neighbor over a period of two months. Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed an "investigative" vehicle was sent to check on the physical safety of Chopey, an employee, but said that only occurred on the Fourth of July weekend in 2011.

It says they were members of the 'Prowler Detail'. They wander the perimeter of the WH without a specific assignment. It does seem like it's an abuse of assets and funds. They spied on a private citizen, no less.

I would not have minded if SS called the local police just to say they would appreciate some help. But diverting agents makes Obama that less secure.
So who decided this? I doubt it was White House staff because they want the agents around.

Is there a statute of limitations for discussions, Twinpac? It just came to light.

I know that DIABLO.

But a hit piece from 3 years ago. Get real!

Bad judgment I agree. But a crime! Hardly.

I did not write it was a crime, Twin.
What is your prob??

My mistake, DIABLO. You said statute of limitations on discussions.

No there isn't. Provided it's newsworthy and at least a little bit relevant. Beyond that, it's just a a hit piece you scrounged up that you think will discredit ~ who knows who?

You aren't fooling anybody.

Since I already opined it was not the White House staff, Twin, I guess I secretly want to attack Freemasons or Elks Club.
Get help.

Attack anybody you want. You couldn't possibly look any more foolish.

End of conversation.

Okay, Twin. Remedial DR for you:

The incident was 2011. The ARTICLE just came out Sunday.
I attacked no one and exonerated so far the White House.
Why you think I have attacked anyone on the thread is beyond me. Please show us all where I did that.
Reuters is hardly a "hit piece" news organ.
Get help.

Why all the attacks on Diablo? Guess nobody cares about Secret service abusing their authority and harassing a directors friend neighbor. Not to mention your tax dollars pay for it. So the next time you people complain about police abuse think of yourselves as hypocrites. The article is not an assault on Obama if that's what your only concern is.With all the stories coming out about their behavior it would seem like the Secret Service needs an overhaul in leadership.

I asked you a question, dave. Are questions considered whining where you are from? If so, what's with your incessant whining in post #20?

You really should THINK before you post, dave.

Excellent 'self retorting retort' smothered with clueless irony. That goat fellow certainly is clever.

Did you make it up to see the Hunley when you were in Savannah?

I'll be in Savannah myself in a couple weeks. If I have time I'm going back for my second look.

Five posts so far from our resident oil rig internet genius, and not one is a comment on the thread.

Roustabout, heal thyself.

Someone considered that "newsworthy."

Nice when you have your own private police force.
