AFP story on Obama daughter’s Mexico spring break with 25 Secret Service Agents scrubbed from Internet

by on March 21, 2013
An AFP report that President Barack Obama’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia, is spending Spring Break in Oaxaca, Mexico appears to have been completely scrubbed from the Internet news sites that first reported it. Pictures have appeared in Mexican magazine Quié allegedly showing Malia visiting Oaxaca.

AFP, the French news agency, first reported around mid-day Monday that Malia Obama was vacationing in Mexico with 12 friends under the protection of 25 Secret Service agents and a number of local police officers.

The International Business Times reported that “the group arrived in Oaxaca on Saturday and reportedly visited the architectural site of Mitla.”

The Department of Public Safety, a Texas law enforcement agency, issued a warning on Tuesday against students celebrating their spring breaks in violence-torn Mexico. The Huffington Post reported that in February, the United States State Department “recommended that Americans avoid travel to all or parts of 14 or 31 Mexican states. It’s the widest travel advisory issued by the U.S. since Mexico stepped up its drug war in 2006.”

Since the story was first reported, it appears to have been scrubbed from a number of news outlets. The Huffington Post, International Business Times, The Australian, The Telegraph and Global Grind have all removed the article. AFP, which initially reported the story, now links to an unrelated story on “Sengalese superstar Youssou Ndour.”

    Democrats want to ban guns so that regular citizens cannot protect themselves, yet this kid gets 25 Secret Service agents plus local cops to protect her on a frivolous vacation. Mayor Bloomberg of New York goes to sleep every night surrounded by ARMED guards. Fat slob Rosie O’Donnell wants to ban guns, but hires a bodyguard that CARRIES A GUN to “protect” her.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is DEMOCRAT.

    If it requires 25 agents to keep one kid safe, the kid should stay in the US; there is absolutely no reason why the secret service should be protecting Malia’s 12 friends. The Obamas consider themselves more entitled than any others to sit in the WH.

      What applies to Americans does not apply to the Obamas.
