Obama Limo Towed Away after Wrong ‘Fill’er Up’

When nothing can go wrong, something usually does. Everything was carefully planned for Obama’s visit – except for the man who put the wrong kind of gasoline in Obama’s limo.

One of the American staff taking care of President Barack Obama’s visit put the wrong gas in the president’s limousine, disabling it and leaving officials scurrying for a replacement stored in Jordan.

The staff member, whose face should be red as a beet, apparently got mixed up between benzene and diesel fuel.

The president’s personal limousines arrived separately on one of two large C-17 cargo planes that also brought two of the president’s Marine One helicopters, Black Hawk helicopters, hundreds of security guards, and a “nuclear briefcase,” Yisrael HaYom reported Wednesday.

One of the limousines was supposed to wait for President Obama in Jerusalem, where he arrived by helicopter.

After the foul-up was discovered, before the president landed at Ben Gurion Airport, an American helicopter flew to Jordan to bring the second limousine. Details were sketchy, but it may have been the second of the president’s limo that was on hand for the president’s short visit there before he flies back home from Israel Friday afternoon.

The limo is an armored Chevrolet known as “The Beast,” as illustrated in the video below.

  14. Role Guy says:

    Who wrote this article? The idiot with the limo did not put the wrong "gas" in the car, ANY gas woudl be wrong, since it has a diesel motor. The correct word in the statement would be "fuel", not gas. Where are the editors who should review these reports before posting them? Reporters are not as well trained or educated as they used to be a few years ago.

  15. Role Guy says:

    What happens when they give the guy in the back seat the wrong "fuel"? Seems like he has already stalled out.
