(Newser) American Airlines shipped guns belonging to the bodyguards of the Israeli prime minister to the wrong airport. In what might be the world's most awkward example of airline incompetence, 4 Glock 9mm weapons were mistakenly sent to LA, not Washington, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was set to meet with President Obama. When the luggage resurfaced, the guns were missing, notes the BBC. Now the airline—and everybody else—is struggling to figure out how it happened.

We lost your guns. Sorry.   (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File)
