Trying to verify a story.

Synopsis: President of United States with school age child is asked for help doing school report on a country. President calls Secretary of State (maybe another position but think it was SOS) and says "I need to know about country X." Secretary of State does not know why question is being asked. Secretary gathers staff and they work all night compiling detailed dossier on the country.

In the morning the Secretary of State has the thick detailed report on the President's desk. The president realizes that he should have clarified what the assignment was about and explains research was for school report for his child.


1) Did this happen?
2) If so, what President?
3) What country was being researched?
4) Citation to verifiable source?
