Government official admits past Secret Service 'misconduct'

A U.S. government official familiar with the Secret Service acknowledged past missteps by Secret Service agents Thursday but was quick to defend the government's internal review process.

"We have had employees that have engaged in misconduct," the official said. "People make mistakes."

His comments come amid reports of misconduct by Secret Service personnel in Colombia and El Salvador.

    The white feminists who are the devil's wives and his human concubines were the most vocal in their hatred toward BLACK AMERICANS , and were the most vocal in demanding the deportation of native born BLACK AMERICANS to AFRICA under immigration laws and they were most vocal in supporting racial profiling in which many BLACK AMERICANS were arrested and were either martyred within the prison system or deported to AFRICA ,where many of them were martyred there and were buried in mass graves in both the SUDAN and in the CONGO. It was this act as well as the rise of the hiphop nation is what has contribute to the black holocaust in which much of the black human population in AMERICA were exterminated 1968-1993-2001.Meanwhile a new demonic black america has arisen from both black antebellum and hiphop nations and is based on stereotyipcal images of low class ,poverty stricken and criminally prone blacks and have replace the black human population . The white feminists(DEVIL'S CONCUBINES) have been trick in beliving by using the hiphop nation against ANDRE ,that it will be easy to get rid of him. Neither SATAN nor will the demons who ruler AMERICA from those black americans churches will be suprise by ANDRE HIMES miraculous survival in the future since by looking his forehead they knew what the white feminists(DEVIL'S CONCUBINES) did not know.

    We don't need a whistleblower to tell us of past secret service misconduct. The secret service sneaking ho's in for JFK is even shown on the History Channel for crying out loud. Agents covering for Hellenor Roosevelt's gay lovers even. Sheesh.

    What "mistakes"? This was a failure to use good judgment.

    A lion woke up one morning feeling really rowdy and mean. He went out and cornered a small monkey and roared,
    "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?"

    The trembling monkey says, "You are, mighty lion!

    Later, the lion confronts a ox and fiercely bellows,
    "Who is the mightiest of all jungle animals?"

    The terrified ox stammers, "Oh great lion, you are the mightiest animal in the jungle!"

    On a roll now, the lion swaggers up to an elephant and roars,
    "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?"

    Fast as lightning, the elephant sna tches up the lion with his trunk, slams him against a tree half a dozen times leaving the lion feeling like it'd been run over by a safari wagon. The elephant then stomps on the lion till it looks like a corn tortilla and ambles away.

    The lion lets out a moan of pain, lifts his head weakly and hollers after the elephant -
    "Just because you don't know the answer, you don't have to get so upset about it!"
