A Truth Where Maybe a Little White Lie Wouldn't Have Hurt
The Secret Service announced that the location of Obama's initial meeting with Calderón has been changed from the Campo Marte to Los Pinos because of security concerns. I don't know if announcing the security-mandated changes to the presidential agenda is standard practice, but it doesn't seem like it should be, or needs to be. With Mexico as defensive as can be because of American comments about its insecurity, would it have killed the Secret Service to call it a logistical conflict, or to simply make no announcement about it?
