I see that Ahmadinejad is in New York. Where did he fly in to (I assume JFK) and what on? For that matter, the same question applies to other world leaders (e.g. whoever cuba sent)... Anything on flightaware?

I didn't know that SWF is the 'parking lot' of such aircraft after dropping off their leader's and related pax at JFK.
As to SWF, note the C-5's in the background. For those who don't know, SWF is also a NY State Air National Guard Base, whom have an operations base of a number of C-5's (seen as many as 5 parked side by side there - impressive sight) and other Military freight aircraft. As part military facility, SWF probably also offers considerable security structure and staff for such aircraft.
