They must save the smart agents for the President as earlier in the week one of Barbara's off duty agents was also mugged and badly beaten.
My mental image of Secret Service agents being sort of like Jack Bauer is crumbling.




First Daughter Barbara Robbed in Argentina
November 21, 2006 3:14 PM

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 and her twin sister Jenna.

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.

That must inspire confidence, when they people in charge of saving your life can't even thwart a two bit purse snatcher. If Al Queda wants to hurt Bush they should take out his daughters, it would obviously be a pretty easy job.

Pretty sad state of affairs when they don't even notice her purse and cellphone being stolen.

It's not like they have anything else to do but WATCH her and the surrounding area while they are on duty.

Talk about incompetance.

nobody is safe in Argentina, people are desperate down there...
and also, the Secret Service Agents were probably distracted by any of the walking by, incredibly hot, Argentinean women.... it's been a few years but i bet they're as hot as ever....
just wait until the Bush girls travel to Brazil with UNICEF... although you find a bit less crime there... those Brazilian women are hot... wow!
