committed suicide a day after failing a national security polygraph and being stripped of his clearances and access, according to sources.The suicide occurred a couple of weeks ago and, I suggest, without a solid reason. Prieto had an affair and lost his job. Many, many men have found themselves in the same lascivious circumstances, dusted themselves off and moved on.
Rafael Prieto, a supervisor on President Obama's Secret Service detail, was found dead last weekend in the passenger side seat of his roommate's car in the garage of their Washington D.C. residence, clutching a photograph of his two children, multiple sources told FoxNews.com.
The suicide came a day after a Do Not Admit email sent agency-wide for Prieto was sent by the Security Clearance Division.
A senior law enforcement official confirmed Prieto's clearance had been pulled, calling it "standard practice" for an employee going through an "administrative process." The official said the investigation "was related to clarifying a long-term ongoing relationship with a foreign national."
Unless there is something more sinister in Prieto's background, I suggest that suicide wasn't a rational response. After all, CIA Chief David Petraeus recently had an affair and lost his job but didn't off himself.
