US President's daughter robbed in Argentina
A daughter of US President George W Bush has been robbed of her mobile phone and purse in Argentina, despite her heavy Secret Service protection.

ABC News, citing police sources, reports that Barbara Bush's purse was snatched at a Buenos Aires restaurant during a night on the town.

Secret Service agents did not notice.

Kim Bruce, spokeswoman for the Secret Service - which provides protection for the President and family - says, "we don't have any comment on that."

The White House did not immediately return telephone calls seeking comment.

Barbara, named after the President's mother, and her twin sister Jenna turn 25 on Saturday.

The twins were dining in San Telmo, Buenos Aires's picturesque arts and dining neighbourhood.

ABC News reports that the theft was not the only difficulty the Secret Service faced during the fraternal twins' two-week visit.

One of the agents got into an "altercation" after a night on the town and was beaten.

Oh how we laughed :D

Maybe GWB will invade Argentina to find and arrest the terrorist?
He won't let a dago by.

Naaah, if they didn't have towels on their heads we won't worry about it that much.

Secret service agents do not party while on assignment. :=

If the agent was assaulted, he likely used some modest restraint while on foreign soil. Sounds like part of the story was accurate - they were not on first daughter detail at the time.

There will be hell to pay back at the debrief regarding the stolen items, however.


At least the girls were behaving. :p
