What the ….?
U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.
Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition, according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.
U.S. officials have yet to confirm or comment on the reports. Timemagazines Battleland blog reported Thursday Senior U.S. officials late Wednesday declined to discuss in detail the security at either Cairo or Benghazi, so answers may be slow in coming.
Cuz, y’know, they really can’t be trusted not to shoot the place up...
Whiskey Tango Fox...
Marines without bullets ... check.
Enemy given secret location ... check.
MSM ready for deflection ... check.
Intel meetings missed for plausible deniability ... check.
Company switched to weapons-off ... check.
All 0bama needs now are galoshes and an umbrella (and a piece of paper to wave)
And above all, DO NOT use harsh language. That really makes em mad.
There’s only one thing worse than not a having a firearm.
It is time to clear out the "Occupy White House" crowd.
Islamic mole as assistant to the Secretary of State... check
LOL....I miss Zell. He has a way with words.
That illustrates the lack of leadership from the top down.
What complete moron made this decision?
This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.
It would be great if this news would make it to the masses via MSM.
For now it seems only mom-n-pop websites are revealing it.
Just this week:
CRUCIFIX MASTURBATION FILM WINS Venice Film Festival
The DNC made and DNC/YouTube released anti muslim flick is fake.
It’s purpose is to take focus off of US economy.
I just heard on Hannity that there are conflicting reports. Some are now saying that the Marines do have bullets. What to believe? If so, why didn’t they use their weapons? Things that make you go hmmmm.
The Commandant of the Marine Corps should have resigned instead of enforcing this order. If I was a Marine and ordered to go to an embassy in a foreign nation I’d end up in the brig.
And obama and Hillary should be prosecuted.
