May 2nd, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) Members of the U.S. Secret Service have visited the Intercontinental and Marriott hotels, as well as Clinica Biblica, where agents assessed whether the medical center was prepared should President Obama require attention.  A U.S. Air Force helicopter has also been stationed on the medical center’s helipad.

 

Emergency plans indicate that Obama would be transferred to Clinica Biblica to receive basic care before being flown by helicopter to Air Force One, where doctors that are part of his entourage would treat him.  Doctors and hospital staff at Clinica Biblica will stay overnight at the medical center on Friday.

 

Meanwhile, the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS), has requested a list of all guests that will be staying at hotels near the Foreign Ministry on Friday.

 

Officers and staff at the Juan Santamaria Airport, where Obama will arrive, have also undergone a series of blood and urine tests to detect the presence of drugs, in addition to criminal background checks.

    How much of our money can this corrupt administration possibly spend on the clown in chief for a photo op and vacation to the wonderful country of Costa Rica? He only wanted a vacation away from DC to avoid facing his miserable economic mess at home. What a pathetic excuse for a chief executive. 3% of his time spent on the economy says it all!

    I would certainly hate to be a politician and have to endure intrusion on my privacy 24 hours of every day. Each dog to his own bone, I suppose.

    This is the President of the United States of America. We should show respect. Society is in a state of decline and it is easy to see why.

    Funny. Once Obama heard that Guardia was the designated emergency hospital he said, “No way, I’m going private. Call Clinica Biblica and make arrangements!”

    Looking at the pic, does it appear Obama is either putting his piece away or just moving it to a less obvious position on his hip? If he is carrying, so much for his aversion to firearms. And dig the shades! Playing SS agent, is he?
