Update: One Twin Stays, One Twin Goes

Nov 27, 2006 5:13pm

ABC News has now learned First Daughter Barbara Bush left Argentina late Sunday night, after being urged to cut short a birthday vacation trip by U.S. embassy officials concerned about the security of the Bush twins after a week of intense media coverage. Her sister Jenna, however, plans to remain in Argentina until Dec. 6, sources told ABC News.  The First Daughters’ visit to Buenos Aires to celebrate their 25th birthday was marred when Barbara Bush’s purse and cell phone were stolen during a visit to the popular San Telmo marketplace, despite the presence of the Bush twins’ Secret Service detail. ———————————————————————– Official Response from the US Embassy in Argentina: We have seen a report from news sources stating that Embassy officials strongly suggested that President Bush’s daughters curtail their visit in Argentina. This is false, as are other aspects of the report referring to the Embassy’s position on the visit. The Embassy welcomes the visit and has provided close support and cooperation.
