Brennan says no Secret Service security breach

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House's top counterterrorism adviser says the Secret Service's prostitution scandal did not expose weak spots in the president's security.

John Brennan says the disciplinary actions taken against the officers allegedly involved shows that Secret Service will take whatever action is necessary to ensure that potential threats won't get an opportunity to "penetrate the security shield that surrounds the president."

Eight Secret Service officers were fired and three others disciplined for their behavior in Colombia where they were setting up security for a visit by President Barack Obama.

The agency has issued new rules of conduct for its officers, including prohibiting entertaining foreigners in the officers' hotel rooms.

Brennan spoke Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

    I don't know what this country is coming to, But I do know, It's not like this mess. I as a citizen we want better than this. Everywhere I travel around the world All I ever hear when They find out I am a US citizen, they make fun of our leader and country. Something is very wrong with our leadership. And if people don't see it for what it is, Then we have a blind eye. I was in london Last month, All the people in the pub I was in Keep asking me about the crime here in the USA, All they here is that were are murdering people, All we like to do is kill each other, Now that is sad to hear.
