First Daughter Barbara (Bush) Robbed in Argentina
abc news ^ | 11-21-06 | abc

First Daughter Barbara Bush had her purse and cell phone stolen as she had dinner in a restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, even though she was being guarded by a detail of Secret Service agents, according to law enforcement reports made available to ABC News.

It was not the only mishap on the two-week trip to Argentina by Barbara (right) and her twin sister Jenna (left).

A Secret Service agent on the advance detail got into an "altercation" with someone after a night out and was badly beaten, according to the law enforcement reports. The Secret Service said today the incident was an attempted mugging that occurred while the agent was on his own time. The agent is doing fine.

The purse snatching took place on Barbara's first night in town while she was dining in the picturesque San Telmo neighborhood. According to the reports, the Secret Service agents failed to notice the incident.

The Secret Service would not comment on the purse snatching, and the First Lady’s office said they would not comment on any personal trip made by the daughters. There have been recent reports, however, that Jenna Bush has been living and working in Panama as an intern for UNICEF.

Someone's head is going to roll for this ....with every terrorist in the world gunning for an American trophy....this detail didn't notice a simple purse snatching right under their noses.

How to insure your career in the Secret Service is short and not very sweet.

Oh my!
Yes, that is one of the third world toilets, I was there a few months ago.
No way the SS can compete with the 'street' smarts of those maggots, they are tops.
But of course, a lot of those people would love to move here, and some do!
Argh!!!!

The Secret Service would not comment on the purse snatching

How can they explain this? Inquiring minds want to know.

"She was dining in the picturesque San Telmo neighborhood"

Whenever they call an area "picturesque", chances are you wouldn't dine there without a company of Marines at hand.
