This isnt the first time the limo has broken. He was in it when there was a massive suspension failure when he was in Ireland leading to the limo beaching itself on a curb ramp.

regarding the limo story.. my thoughts are that someone snapped the car on the flatbed and made up a story, the world wants to call the US dumbfucks and so the "story" gets out there. I have more faith in the people that surround the president and are in charge of his security.. to believe that the vehicle would get the wrong fuel.

anyway.... this guy I have no faith in:

There was a pretty good show on Nat Geo net the end of the Bush administration about his trip to Africa and Iraq. They followed the advanced team and the actual flights. The fuel is tested I think a month if not longer in advance and then sealed by the Secret Service to keep it from being tampered with. In some countries fuel is brought in.
