South Africa: Obama sends feds to protect USA team.
There are some websites out there that continue to highlight the goings on in South Africa. Here is another post from the CoCC website.
Obama administration takes unprecedented action to protect an American sports team.
The Columbian soccer team had $2,500 looted from their hotel rooms by hotel staff in South Africa. The same thing happened to the Egyptian team during preliminaries.
Now the Obama administration has ordered federal agents to South Africa to protect the American team. A large force will protect American soccer players whenever they leave their hotel rooms.
Bill Clinton and Joe Biden are attending games and will be surrounded by armies of federal security forces. (So much for loving diversity!)
