AFP story on Obama daughter’s Mexico trip scrubbed from Internet
Daily Caller ^ | 3/19/2012 | Staff

Posted on 03/20/2012 4:11:48 AM PDT by IbJensen

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 Quién.com 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.”

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 other American. Little Malaria and chums sun themselves on an elaborate vacation in Mexico while her father whittles away at what's left of the U. S. economy!

How’d she get there?

Who’s paying for the rooms and food for her and the agents?

Who are the adults with the group?

The 25 secret service baby sitters we employ for such outings.

Thirteen year olds need some international travel time away from their parents, and something we should all be happy to pay for.

Glad she can enjoy the vacation while the rest of us have to work and sacrifice!

There is just no excuse for this .... but that’s typical of the Obama ‘gypsies in the palace’. I’m sure the stories are being ‘scrubbed’ not so much for the kids’ safety, but because the president’s PR staff is realizing this looks super bad - yet another unbelievable Obama vacation to (IMO) an unsuitable place, with a gaggle of friends along (I’m sure their parents are personally footing the travel/SS protection bills, right? /s)

Just some of the “on the job training” she is getting. Both her parents are experts at getting what they can from the peons of America. This needs to go viral across the world to show what this group of trailer trash is doing/stealing from all of us while the rest of the nation is going under. Time to clean the house and get the parasites out.

The pictures aren’t helping the PR folks either - looks spoiled, bored, and a few other things. Something else I noticed .... there are no black friends?

On a side note, I’ve had more fun in a bus station than it looks like those kids are having. What is that holding pen they’re cooped up in?

Excellent observation.  There's no way that's accidental.

Ha ha. The US department of state just issued trvael warning to Mexico in February. Obama children and their playmates roam freely.

So Malia invited 13 of her little playmates. I wonder how those select few in her class, which is part of a small private school, felt when they weren't invited.

I just hope they all have access to contraception in a foreign country, after all US public schools are providing for 12 year olds. Well, maybe their school gave them enough for the trip, or the SS agents were told to make sure the girls were protected. Wow, what a risk! Sending your children to a country that doesn’t provide contraception.

That kind of stuff is going to make us on FR look sort of lame.

The other daughter, Sasha, is really named Natasha — kind of like a soviet spy might be named.

The pictures here with the article show the daughter that I thought was Sasha - the older girl. Malia is about a foot shorter than this girl.

She’s 13. A 13 year-old girl only has three friends: Despair, Loneliness and Misery. They are the hopeless victims of venomous fate.

Whereas 13 year-old boys live by one creed: I fart, therefore I am.

so they use Secret service agents as baby sitters, use our money to end their kid and her friends on vacation in another country and then try to have all of this scrubbed from the world.

Imagine what other things they have done which we have no idea about .

Now we know then will there be reports on this in this country on the TV and radio?
I won’t hold my breath, because if the public were to be informed the left would never get elected again

Maybe those were the ones whose parents never contributed to Baby Doc Baraq's campaign or party?
