Obama's daughter spends spring break in Mexico
Edmonton Journal ^ | June 5, 2012 | Agence France-Presse

Posted on 09/06/2012 8:36:50 AM PDT by Daffynition

OAXACA, Mexico - The elder daughter of U.S. President Barack Obama is spending her spring break in the historic Mexican city of Oaxaca in the company of 12 friends, a state police official said.

The young tourists, including 13-year-old Malia Ann Obama, are staying at a downtown hotel in this city famous for its colonial architecture and well-preserved native American traditions, the official said.

"We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites," the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.

Malia Obama and her friend are guarded by 25 U.S. Secret Service agents as well as Mexican police, the official noted.

Why haven't we heard about it?

The Obama Administration has had the Secret Service scouring the web ordering that any website mentioning this be taken down because letting the travel plans out could have endangered the president's daughter's security.

Security isn’t the only issue. Deluxe king’s court vacations that even most CEOs couldn’t afford don’t play well politically.

Isn't this just damned ducky! Spring Break? Spring was a season (almost two) ago. She's a sharp one.

"Daddy, you've been telling everybody and their brother that you need a do-over of the last 4 years to get done what you promised you'd have done by now."

I just want a Spring Break 'Do-over'.

Doesn’t our own State Department not recommend travel in Mexico? Oh wait....I forgot they had two jets, and 25 secret service men.

That’s the problem with posting old news, the SS was worried about web sites mentioning her whereabouts when she was actually on vacation. This far removed from the event it doesn’t matter.

Well, apparently a great *white-out* has happened regarding this story....which is only still available on a few Canadian news sites.

Heh. Funny that.

This was all over FR when it happened, months and months ago. This admin sends free condoms to 11 year olds and doesn’t want his daughters punished with a baby.

You can add 2 and 2

LOL....well, thank goodness we have a transparent administration.

The White House has admitted to telling news agencies to pull stories on Malia Obama visiting the Mexico for spring break, Politico reports.

Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emailed Dylan Byers:

From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.

You misunderstood the headline.

They were using “code words”.

The two were actually somewhere in S. Arizona.

Articles about this were posted many times on FR - from the time it was a plan (March) till after it was completed.

A simple google search on obama daughter mexico site:freerepublic.com displays all those posts.

I still think it was a hostage event for some big-time meeting of important people a la whatever family was responsible for protecting hostages in “The Godfather”.
