Obama, the elements in Dublin

A convoy of limousines President Barack Obama today got stuck on a ramp at the U.S. Embassy in Dublin, but Secret Service agents could move to forward or backward. The cameras stationed outside the Embassy captured how the vehicle he was unable to climb the ramp and blocked the exit of the rest of the convoy in which they were traveling Obama and his wife, Michelle.

Secret Service agents failed to move the vehicle despite several attempts. Finally opted for redistribution to the occupants of the car at the rest of the convoy and leave the embassy next door. The U.S. president arrived in Dublin for a visit where he met his Irish counterpart, Mary McAleese and Prime Minister Enda Kenny, before moving to Moneygall, the village center to Ireland a century and a half left an ancestor, Falmouth Kearney, seeking a better life in America.

Obama was scheduled to start tomorrow morning, but his departure has advanced tonight to the risk of Icelandic volcanic ash affecting Grymsvoen British air traffic.
