Netanyahu’s bodyguard guns disappear. Welcome to the USA!

Not even officers from Israeli security service Shin Bet can escape the scourge of lost [and stolen] luggage it seems.

A bag belonging to agents travelling with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was mistakenly put on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, not to Washington. Alarmingly the bag contained four 9mm Glock handguns, which are now missing…

The Israeli officers were accompanying Mr Netanyahu to Washington for White House talks with President Barack Obama.

NBC News reported that the handguns had, in accordance with security procedures at New York’s John F Kennedy airport, been placed inside checked luggage. The luggage was then supposed to be put on a connecting flight to Washington however, American Airlines workers at the airport instead sent it right across the country to LAX in Los Angeles.

By the time the luggage was located and recovered, the guns had disappeared, and are presumed to have been stolen.

Hey, life in the fast lane – in 21st Century America.

    I’m not sure I see the problem here.

    All they had to do was walk down the street and purchase as many replacement Glocks as they wanted.

    Hell, they could have purchased thousands and thousands of Glocks and shipped them back to Israel.

    Talk about having a non-problem! Not having a handgun in the good old USA has to be at the very top of the list!
