Secret Service agent clashes with Chilean police

you go Shrub!

http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/americ....ap/index.html

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- President Bush stepped into the middle of a confrontation and pulled his lead Secret Service agent away from Chilean security officials who barred his bodyguards from entering an elegant dinner for 21 world leaders Saturday night.

Several Chilean and American agents got into a pushing and shoving match outside the cultural center where the dinner was held. Bush noticed the fracas after posing for pictures on a red carpet with the summit host, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and his wife and first lady Laura Bush.

Abandoning the other three, Bush walked over to the agents, reached through the dispute and pulled his agent from the scrum.

The president, looking irritated, walked away with the agent. The incident was shown on APEC television.

"Chilean security tried to stop the president's Secret Service from accompanying him," said White House deputy press secretary Claire Buchan. "He told them they were with him and the issue was resolved."

I saw this, Bush just had to vouch for the guy and that's all that happened.

Move along, move along, nothing to see here.

Chile calls off Bush banquet after security dispute

SANTIAGO, Chile (CNN) -- Plans for a state dinner for President Bush at Chile's presidential palace were scratched Sunday after the United States insisted on security measures that Chile called unacceptable.

I think it says something about Bush's character that he wasn't going to let them push one of his guys around.

You should. It has significance, unlike Bush's performance in Chile.

He probably didn't believe in slave labor and made a choice.
