[quote:calin:MV8yMjYyNDEzXzM4NDUwMDc5X0ZDRDNBM0FF] After the paper questioned the costs of a planned family safari, the White House nixed the plan. "The president and first lady had also planned to take a Tanzanian safari as part of the trip, which would have required the president’s special counter-assault team to carry sniper rifles with high-caliber rounds that could neutralize cheetahs, lions or other animals if they became a threat, according to the planning document. But the White House canceled the safari on Wednesday following inquiries from The Washington Post about the trip’s purpose and expense, according to a person familiar with the decision." http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obamas-family-trip-africa-cost-60-100-million_735195.html [/quote]
President Obama and his family will be going to Africa later this month. But the trip won't be cheap; it's expected to cost American taxpayers $60 to $100 million, according to the Washington Post.
"When President Obama makes his first extended trip to sub-Saharan Africa later this month, the federal agencies charged with keeping him safe won’t be taking any chances. Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A
Navy aircraft carrier
or amphibious ship, with a
fully staffed medical trauma center
, will be stationed offshore in case of emergency," reports the Post.
"Military cargo planes will airlift in
56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bullet-proof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay
Fighter jets will fly in shifts giving 24-hour coverage
over the president’s airspace so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close
