Secret Service Escort Says US Agents ‘Showed No Respect’

Secret Service Escort Says US Agents ‘Showed No Respect’

One of the Colombian escorts at the center of the Secret Service scandal emerged from hiding today, recounting in detail her night in Cartagena with a member of President Obama’s protective detail and saying she fears for her safety.

Dania Suarez, a 24-year old dark-haired beauty, appeared on a call-in show carried by Colombia’s W Radio and Carocol Television Friday morning, telling callers the agent was “heavily intoxicated” and everything in his luggage and his papers was left open in his room and could have been easily stolen.

Asked if she had been a spy could she have removed the papers, Suarez said, “Absolutely, absolutely.”

“Clearly, in those moments, if I had wanted to, obviously, I could have done so,” she said.

Suarez says she met the agent at a disco where they danced and she began to rub her hands over his body.

“He didn’t know how to dance,” she said of the agent, identified in published accounts elsewhere as Arthur Huntington, who has left the Secret Service under circumstances that are unclear.

She said that Huntington did not appear to be searching for a prostitute but that “I found him.”

Suarez said Huntington fell asleep when they returned to his room and refused to answer the question of whether they actually had sex.

“If I answer this you will know what happened,” she said.

Suarez said the agent “did not feel he got what he was being asked to pay for” and that this led to dispute over how much he owed her at the end of the evening.

She said she does not consider herself a prostitute, but an escort because prostitutes “are lower class and live in brothels.”

She confirmed other accounts that the agent offered her $30, which led to a confrontation at the agent’s door which drew the attention of the hotel manager and local police.

She said the agents pleaded, “Please, please no police, no police.”

“Between all of them, they collected the money, $250, and that’s what happened in the hall,” she said. “They were part of Obama’s security group and I told them I was going to call the police so they can pay me the money.”

Suarez said she left Colombia for a few days because of concerns her life could be in danger and has had no contact with any American official.

“Maybe they are just as dumb as the Secret Service agents,” she told the station.

Throughout her appearance this morning, dressed in a skimpy green blouse, Suarez laughed and smiled even as the host reminded her of the seriousness of the scandal.

“This is who I am and all I really care about is my mother and my young son,” Suarez said.

About vincepalamara

Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology. Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and supboena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy. Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda and The Not-So-Secret Service. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 120 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works. Vince has appeared on the History Channel, C-SPAN, A COUP IN CAMELOT, KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT, National Geographic, PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library. Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.
