The official Presidential limo, dubbed "The Beast" for it's weight and protective wizardry "broke down." Why? A blown hose? Timing belt? A Big Gulp splashed outta one of the cup holders?
No. We are to believe that the most protected, scrutinized, vehicle in the world was "accidentally" filled with diesel instead of gasoline. Really.
Please read the article from the UK Guardian. What stunned me is that a "back up" vehicle is on it's way. From Jordan.
This just feels so damn wrong and inept. And conspiratorial. Sorry...but I cannot wrap my mind around these reported series of events involving Presidential safety while in the Mid East.

You can't put diesel into a gas engine, the diesel nozzle is too big for a filler neck on a gas car....
You can however put gas into a diesel tank because the diesel is bigger than the gas nozzle....
They think we are all idiots don't they?!
The official limousine awaiting President Barack Obama's arrival in Israel malfunctioned after its driver refueled it using gasoline rather than diesel fuel, an official said Wednesday.
