On June, 2013, a leaked internal document obtained by CBS News said staff protecting ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regularly solicited sex workers. The reports also allege a drug ring may have provided narcotics to state department contractors in Iraq. (Source)
Most of us remember Former Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton as an advocate of universal human rights, democracy, women rights and the freedom of expression.As the prime ambassador of the US, she has been touring the world, reminding us, from every podium, the high moral grounds the US stands on and how it is imperative for the US to bring democracy and human rights to the world. Afghanistan was invaded under two slogans, democracy and women rights, in July 2012, in Kabul, she said:
‘…women in the country will not be sacrificed’, ‘…women and civil society groups will be essential to this country’s success.’ She said, ‘If they are silenced and pushed to the margins of Afghan society, the prospects for peace and justice will be subverted.’ (Source)
It is also interesting to note that the ‘Secretary of State, held the responsibility of overseeing the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP Office), which is an office dedicated to abolishing sex trafficking and forced labor worldwide. The demand for prostitution leads to sex trafficking, ergo, those who purchase sex contribute to the sexual slavery of women, children, and men. Those who turn a blind eye to these johns are just as complicit.’ (Source)
The question is can a state, run by such corrupt offices be responsible for bringing high value moral principles to the world? Was it rightful for Mrs. Clinton, to have stood on the podium, in numerous countries around the world, when her own office was swirling with abuse, right under her nose?
Previously the US and certain western countries have shown integrity in the matter of the sexual conduct of at least their highest office-holders and it is portrayed that high officials would resign immediately and apologize publicly. But her case has strangely been put into oblivion and the mainstream western media has not made much out of it… does Hilary aspire to stand for office in the next term, will America be ruled by sex-offenders in future.
Aurelia Fedenisn, the whistle blower in this case, called it a cover-up and has a memo detailing the investigations, which she says included “several allegations of criminal wrongdoing in cases, some of which never became cases.”Fedenisn claims the findings were met with resistance from State Department higher-ups…
She said, the officials “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” — a problem the report says was “endemic.” The memo also reveals details about an “underground drug ring” was operating near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and supplied State Department security contractors with drugs.

CBS News reported June 10, on an internal State Department Inspector General’s (IG) memo about “several recent investigations [which]were influenced, manipulated, or simply called off.” that members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail ‘engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries’ — a problem the report says was ‘endemic. If true, is it any wonder former-Secretary Hillary Clinton evaded answers as to why there were four dead Americans in Benghazi on her watch, when she cannot ferret out security agents using prostitutes right under her nose?

Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton, this is not the only allegation she is surrounded by, we have seen her getting in trauma for not being able to answer the Ben Ghazi incident, and furthermore she has been alleged to have used her position to have the Department of Homeland to unfairly obtain U.S. visas for foreign investors in a company run by Hillary Clinton’s brother.

What should alarm us is not the criminal record of an individual, rather what is alarming is the global attitude of gratification towards the US, to be the role-model and the prime arbitrator in global matters. Perhaps it is time for the world to review its choice of blindly following the US as a world leader.
