An AFP story, linked at the Huffington Post and elsewhere, reported on Malia Obama’s visit to Mexico despite a Texas public safety warning, she’s reportedly accompanied by 12 friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The Huffington Post story link now directs to the main page and the AFP item is fast disappearing from view.

The Yahoo News link now diverts to a completely different story, in contrast to the url: The headline now reads: Senegal music star Youssou Ndour hits campaign trail.

The International Business Times, among others, still has the story live – for now.

President Barack Obama’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Ann Obama, will be spending her spring break in the Mexican city of Oaxaca with 12 friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The young tourists will be in a downtown hotel in the city known for its colonial architecture and native traditions, reported a state police official…

The report comes at the same time the Texas Department of Public Safety has issued a warning, advising students on Spring Break to not travel to Mexico due to increased violence…

Update:   “White House Admits Asking Media to Scrub Reports of Malia Obama’s Mexican Vacation” Well, that’s all right, then.

From the comments section:

I just cringe a little every time anyone’s kids are used by either side to score points.

This isn’t really about the kid, though she’s obviously a player in the story. This is about Obama’s parental judgment, his lapdog media, national security implications and the incessant and excessive use of taxpayer funds to finance Obama vacations. All of which is fair game.

Update 2: The Blaze has more.

Update 3: Well, this splains it: We are dealing with the Child of your Lord, not some Bush Girl.

…This is the real story here. To the White House, these secret service agents are just serfs (Remember Ron Silver’s: “Wait a minute those are our planes now!” at the time of Clinton inaugural?) and as serfs any risk that they take are simply the proper service a serf does for his liege Lord…
