President Obama's Limo Breaks Down in Israel
20 Mars 2013 - Autoblog
Reports are coming in from Israel that President Obama's limousine, often called "The Beast," has broken down. You might be wondering how the most protected vehicle in the world could break down on an overseas visit, and the answer would surprise you. Apparently, somebody filled The Beast with diesel fuel instead of gasoline, according The Times of Israel. As the report goes...
"The Americans filled it up with diesel, rather than petrol," reports Channel 2 - stressing that it was the Americans, not the Israelis.
What does the Secret Service do when the US President's ride has been compromised this way? Since calling a cab is out of the question, they reportedly have a replacement limousine being flown in from in Jordan. "Son of Beast," we'll call it.
