The top U.S. military officer said Monday the nation's military leadership is embarrassed by allegations of misconduct against several U.S. military members at a Colombia hotel on the eve of President Obama's visit over the weekend.
"All 11 were from stateside military 'orgs' brought to Colombia to be part of Joint Task Force Summit of the Americas," Col. Malcom told The Times.
Army Col. Scott Malcom, chief spokesman for U.S. Southern Command in Miami, said all personnel under investigation were on temporary assignment in Cartagena.
