    I don't have enough information to make a decision whether anything has been intentionally pulled down.

    But if it was, I'd assume it's because of security reasons.

    Just out of curiosity, why would the Obamas let a 14 year old go by herself to a foreign country?

    From what I can see, I think it might have been a school trip.

    It looks like she might have gone. I'm assuming the articles were probably taken down for security reasons - I mean, if I was the President, and my daughter was going on a school trip to Mexico, I'd want as few people to know about it as possible.

    Try using Google for a search and clicking the resulting links that don't take you to where they say.

    I don't buy the security theory.

    What parent would send their 14-year-old daughter to a country officially declared as dangerous as Mexico is?

    Would you?




    Edit: ftr, she's only 13 ....

    Just out of curiosity, what makes you think she is by herself? The story said she was with other girls, which leads me to suspect it is a school trip of some kind. I would assume there is some type of adult supervision, and I know the Secret Service is there.

    No, but I can't send the Secret Service along to protect her.

    But Mexico????? Adult supervision and secret service or no ....


    It being Mexico is probably why they're getting the references expunged from the news feeds ... but WTF were they thinking to begin with?

    Yeah, I found that. That's why I think that she probably did go.

    Why else, if not security?
