Last night, as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepared to take off from JFK, an alarm set off a "massive air and water search of the airport perimeter," reports the New York Post. The intruders got within half a mile of Bibi's plane, which would have been bad had they been terrorists as opposed to four fishermen who had unwittingly breached the airport's no-go zone. Meanwhile, several airport security officials are likely back on the job market.
