President Obama's Limo Breaks Down in Israel

May 28th, 2013

President Obama arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel last Tuesday for a visit. President Obama was scheduled to spend time with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, including participating in a press conference and taking part in a working dinner.

While President Obama joked with Prime Minister Netanyahu that "it was good to get away from Congress," for a while, the trip did not get off to a smooth start. Before President Obama even arrived in Israel, mechanical difficulties had begun.

President Obama's limo, often called "The Beast," was shipped to Israel ahead of his arrival. This heavily armed limo is used on the President's trips to transport him around town to various engagements. The Beast broke down and had to be towed in Jerusalem. The Secret Service refuses to discuss the nature of the breakdown, but major news outlets are reporting that a driver mistakenly filled The Beast with gasoline instead of the diesel fuel that it requires.

Fortunately, the Secret Service ships multiple limousines for each of the President's trips, and they travel with a mechanic.
