American Airlines Loses Netanyahu Bodyguard's Guns

World leaders are people just like the rest of us. They have dreams and flaws, put their pants on one leg at a time, and they’re not even immune to having their luggage lost or stolen while traveling by air. Not even when that luggage is the four Glock 9mms belonging to their personal bodyguard. UPDATE: The luggage has been found, but the guns are gone.

Four handguns belonging to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s bodyguard have gone missing after they were mistakenly put on the wrong flight to Los Angeles instead of Washington. Looks like American Airlines might have just upped United in the careless baggage handling game.
