Secret Service Puts New Rules in Place

The U.S. Secret Service imposed new rules "aimed at tightening oversight of its employees on international trips in the wake of the Colombia prostitution scandal -- banning staff members from bringing foreigners into their hotel rooms, drinking alcohol within 10 hours of duty and visiting "non-reputable establishments," the Washington Post reports.

Meanwhile, CBS News reports the agency is now looking into reports "that Secret Service personnel traveling in 2009 with former President Clinton partied at strip clubs on a visit to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and that agents and White House staffers went to a Moscow night club known for its sexually charged atmosphere prior to Mr. Clinton's trip to Russia in 2000."
