Help request. Does anybody have audio of Beckel's insult of Marines on The Five?
n/a | 9/24/12 | Texas Eagle

Posted on 09/24/2012 6:55:47 PM PDT by Texas Eagle

On Monday's edition of The Fox News Channel's "The Five", Bob Beckel insults the capabilities of our Marines by saying "no amount of Marines could have stopped the Embassy attacks".

That would only be true if those Marines had no ammo.

It seems like I've heard other RATS say the same thing over the past few days but I haven't been able to find any clips.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I heard that too. Guilfoyle responded by saying that the terrorists could have been defeated by a group of Marines because they, the terrorists, came in two separate waves.

I watched most of it, but must have missed that part. I do find it odd he would say something like that while wearing his USMC suspenders. Okay, well not really...

I've seen nothing online and I missed the show today. Needless to say, he's totally full of feces! An equipped platoon of Marines would have knocked those bastards out in short order, and any survivors would have been crawling away in pain or lying helpless in pools of their own blood!

Were those USMC braces that the buffoon was wearing? I didn’t know that he’d been a Marine.

There are Marines in the US Embassies to keep track of cryto gear, NOT to act as a fighting force.

A large facility may have as few as a dozen Marines, that is why the FAST teams were formed up.

The primary mission of the MSG is to provide security, particularly the protection of classified information and equipment vital to the national security of the United States at American diplomatic posts.(10 USC 5983)

The host country provides security.

He said he wore them on a bet with some heckler at an event he was speaking at.

More than likely to draw attention to himself.

Platoon of Marines and a minigun can keep the virgins pretty damn busy.

I don't know what kind of braces he was wearing, but he's a leftist. Nothing about any USMC service on wiki. I served as a Navy Corpsman with the Marines in Nam, and I wear regalia of my unit, but not of the Corps at large. My Brothers know what I am, they regard me as a Brother as I do them. But I don't seek any self-aggrandizement and I don't describe myself as a U.S. Marine. I'm an FMF Corpsman - and proud of it! God Bless the United States of America!

Yeah that worked out well in Benghazi.

The Middle East is not London or Paris. And Marines do not just protect crypto gear. It is part of their carge to defend personnel as well. But there were nomarines in Benghazi. None, nada, zip.

Not 'his'. Beckel was NEVER a Marine. Semper Fi is something foreign to him.

The comment was not a disparagement, it was a realistic statement. Bambi and Hillary, farmed security to a brit firm that agreed to unarmed security. The only armed men were the Seals that tried to help, rushing(or attempting to rush) new statements say they were taken at the safe house, though it seams they retook the compound at 1-2am after it was taken at 11:30 and then another wave came and over ran. Beckle is a lib, not a commie like bambie. I don’t agree with his politic, but don’t read more into him then what he is, a non economically educated leftist push poller.

Beckel is ashamed of himself because his father served and he didn’t.

True statement, however, they might have altered the outcome.

Attempting to download the whole show. I’m getting something now that looks as if I may be getting it.

I’ll check back in to let you know how it went. I should be able to carve out the part you want after I’ve downloaded it and converted.

Brother,

I was with 5th Marines (attached from 11th Marines) as well, mid ‘69. Were you at a place called Hill 55?

Semper fi.

Thanks for the assist. We’re doing a radio show here in NorCal and I heard Beckel say what he said right before I left for the studio so I didn’t get a chance to capture it.

Semper Fi, Brother! I can't recall whether I was at Hill 55 or not. When I arrived at the end of April we were sent out to the Arizona. Had some heavy fighting there 11May1969 - Mothers' Day Massacre. We were out there for about 5-6 weeks as I recall. In late May, we were back in An Hoa for a few days. Posted to Operation Pipestone Canyon late May - Gonoy Island defoliation op - My major exposure to Agent Orange. Thereafter, in the hills west of An Hoa - not sure where we were - near the Laotian border. I was medevaced out for a con-combat injury at the end of June - spent a couple of weeks at USNH Yokosuka. Returned to Nam and out to the Arizona in early Aug. Hit 18Aug1969 - back to the states and in hospital until January '70.

Thank you very much, my Brother! There are many things I am proud of in my life - but nothing else compares to the pride I feel from having served as an FMF Corpsman with the Fighting Fifth Marines in one of our Nation's Honorable Causes - And we were kicking ass when I was there!

Unfortunately Beckel is correct due to what operational rules would be applied. In 1980 , I think, the large US embassy in Rawalpindi, Pakistan was stormed by a large mob and burned and destroyed. One US Army communications warrant was killed. The embassy had a full marine security contingent. How did this happen? The state department types from the ambassador on down absolutely forbade use of deadly force or any real counter measures. Instead everyone was to shelter in place in a ‘saferoom’ in the embassy. It was just luck that the pak military got to the location before everyone roasted to death. In 1974 on Cyprus a mob of Cypriots attacked the US embassy ostensibly because the US was not doing enough to get the Turks from invading the island. Once again the embassy had a full marine security contingent and a mob was permitted to break into embassy ground destroy everything outside the building include torch cars and inflict significant damage on the structure and, and, using the flaming vehicles as cover a sniper team probably KGB knew where to fire into the embassy and kill the US ambassador. Again Marines had been told to stand down gather in the building and prepare to use minimum force if the building was breached. One Marine was killed by the snipers as well, apparently the ambassador's body guard. This happened a couple days before Nixon resigned so it never got the visibility it merited. battalion of Marines would be useless with the mentality of the FS types who absolutely under no circumstances are going to permit US forces to use deadly force to defend a US embassy. ‘It sends a terrible message redolent of 19th century colonialism. US Marines killing foreign nationals in their own country defending something as archaic as extraterritoriality’ Direct quote from an instructor at the Foreign Service Academy.

The Marines would NEVER take a POS like Beckel. He makes The FIVE UNWATCHABLE when it’s his turn.

Oh, I don’t know. Beckel is pretty humorous...if I’m in the right frame of mind. I don’t watch the show daily, obviously.

Well, I hate to have to say this, but the whole show did not download. I was able to pull down one segment, but it wasn’t the right segment.

When the download began, it did show the length to be the whole show. Unfortunately it didn’t all download.

Sorry about that. I’ll check out YouTube for you to see if it pops up. I’ll also check out FoxNews to see if they post that segment.

There’s something not as good as a live audio, and that’s the show transcript. FoxNews provides them for ‘the Five’. Yesterday’s show transcript should be available in the next day or so.

That got my attention when I heard Beckel say that. As a former marine I can assure Beckel that a small well armed marine squad could easily put down a mob of Islamists.

Not a problem. I appreciate the efforts. I DVRd the 11:00 showing. I'll just record right off the TV. I have the software to correct any inconsistencies and distortions.

Too bad there's no such software available to do the same to DemocRATS.

I agree. He certainly frames "democrats" for all to see. A week or so ago, his parting shot at the rest of the gang was something to the tune of "You are all free-market capitalists"...
