Mary Bancroft – Master Spy

“I can’t understand what the f–k you are saying.” The voice came from an elderly lady in the back row of my computer class. It was from Mary Bancroft, a part owner of The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of Autobiography of a Spy and was the woman behind the plot to kill Hitler, the lover of CIA chief, Allen Dulles, the lady who invited me to dinner to meet Woody Allen and, yes, Mary Bancroft was my computer student.

Secret Service Shenanigans

Not everyone is unhappy over the incident

Senior Senate Republican Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley says Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan told him Tuesday that he’s referred the matter to the agency’s inspector general.

Other lawmakers Sullivan met with on Tuesday say he reports getting conflicting accounts about whether the 20 or 21 women who met with eleven Secret Service members and ten military personnel in Cartagena, Columbia were prostitutes. Other sources state the girls were not prostitutes but minors, but that has been contested,

Cocaine and several bottles of whiskey apparently fueled the fling according to the hotel staff.

The room where the drug fueled orgy was held was trashed by the Secret Service (two of which were supervisors) and military personnel (of which five are elite special forces men). The hotel staff went to the room with the police after one prostitute raised hell after a Secret Service member initially refused to pay her.

According to the hotel staff, “The prostitute was screaming in the lobby that he didn’t pay her,” the early-morning shift worker recalled. “She looked like she had a few drinks in her. She just wanted what was promised to her.”

“The agent was supposed to pay her a “bar fine” (really a fee for the pimp) on top of the pay rate for her sexual services, but he didn’t,” he said. Her name was reported to be Dania.

“When I went upstairs I walked into a messy room. The room was littered with two whiskey bottles—and a line of white powder, I believed to be cocaine, was on top of a round glass table in the room,” the hotel staff member said.

Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan reports to Homeland Security head, Janet Napolitano. Whoever these girls may or may not be, hookers, spies, or schoolgirls, Secretary Napolitano is livid even apoplectic over the affair. It is feared she may have a conniption fit over the incident.

In order to enter through the top security surrounding Obama’s secret service agents, and a couple of dog handling marines, the girls had to give their identities. This has enabled the authorities to track down the girls and question them. The concern is that some of the girls may be in the pay of Al Qaeda or other Arab terrorists.

One of the Secret Service officers,  David Randall Chaney, 48, has agreed to resign and the other, a supervisor, intends to retire according to the agency. A third, Greg Stokes, who was assistant special agent in charge of the K-9 division,, has been recommended for firing, but will have an opportunity to appeal, officials said.

It is incredible that any of the agents should be allowed to retire. The agency has stated that the suspected agents have or will be given lie detector tests.

Since, however, these agents have been trained on how to fool lie detector tests, what good will the tests do? Perhaps the the entire group, the eleven Secret Service agents, and the ten military men should be put to another type of test.

They should be waterboarded!

    I hope all of these guilty sons of mother’s-of-whores will lose their jobs, their pensions, and go to prison for doing this to our PresidenT.
    I’m furious at what has happened! Janet Napolitano needs to step down as well,.
