Obama's Limousine Breaks Down In Israel by ochejoseph(m): 7:58pm On Mar 20, 2013




One of US President Barack Obama's limousines has broken down in Israel.

The black, heavily guarded limousine experienced mechanical problems in Tel Aviv before Mr Obama landed in the country for a state visit.

Media reports said the vehicle was mistakenly filled with diesel rather than petrol.

The disabled limo was swapped for a back-up, and Mr Obama's busy itinerary in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem on Wednesday was not affected.

"This is why we bring multiple vehicles and a mechanic on all trips," US Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said in a statement.

"Situations like this are planned for extensively by our advance teams so that the President's itinerary is unaffected by these types of issues."

Must have been the work of a terrorist mole.

Either that or the average Israeli is simply too daft. Imagine what they will say if this were to happen in Nigeria.

If Obama was visiting Nigeria u can be sure the secret service will come with their own fuel.

I am not in anyway surprise because nobody is perfect, some people just try to be more advanced than other.

If this type of situation happen to any African or the so-called third-world countries President, people would have been saying is because of their uncivilized or corruption or incompetence that cause it.

NO HUMAN BEING IS PERFECT!

That is a country that values the office of the president and therefore,they deem it fit that only noble men should occupy that sit.however in Nigeria,the reverse is the case because vagabonds have found their way into that office and its presidential status has diminished over time.
