A new administration policy?
Barack Obama disarmed the US Marines at the Inaugural parade this year.
Dishonored and disarmed: Bolts are clearly missing from these Marine rifles during President Obamas inauguration parade. This is an unmistakable insult to the honor of the Marine Corps
Its not the first time the Obama Administration disarmed US Marines at an event.
In March 2012, US Marines were told to leave their weapons outside the tent during Leon Panettas speech in Afghanistan.

It sounds as though hussein is afraid of how own troops. I hope that he has a reason.
They refused to follow the Undocumented Tyrant’s
demand that they first micturate on the US Constitution
and then pledge allegiance to the Moslem Brotherhood.
Yes, and likely both reasons.
The reason this was done is because he did not want one of these fine young men to shoot him..He knows as well as we do honest people hate his rotten guts..
The (Fly-ridden) Closer!
Stalin was afraid of the military too.
This is not a new policy. When the University of Delaware ROTC drill team marched in an inaugural parade in the 1960’s, the bolts had to be removed from their ‘03 Springfields.
Probably not a bad idea since, like me and thousands of others, they are sworn to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic and have been trained to kill Communists and radical Islamists.....
That oath to “...support and defend the Consitution against all enemies foreign and domestic...” taken by the Marines seems to be a bit of a problem for Double-O bama
The Marines pledge to protect from enemies foreign and domestic so 0bama probably had good cause to disarm the guys right here in America.
bet he doesn’t trust them
Obama might have given the order. Or he might have simply approved of the order. Or he might have been completely unaware that the order was even given.
He’s afraid of looking like Anwar Sadat (?) after a military parade.
O'Lenin does not trust the military and has emasculated it with his admittance of open homosexuals and weakened it by placing women in combat. He is purging the officer corps just as Clinton, another Leftist, did and as Carter did. He fears the military will intervene against him. That fear is surely misplaced but he is a Leftist and cannot shake it.
Yes, considering the Marines' oath it's not at all surprising that Zero felt they needed to be disarmed!
In 1981, wheen George Bush came to the Philippines, we were ot allowed to carry any weapons
This article is an over-reaction it sounds like
However, I wonder if they have pictures of years before
One of obozo’s handlers must have pointed out that when culling the military to only include soldiers who would fire on American citizens that includes naturalized citizens!
reason rhymes with treason
When Obozo cuts 20,000 marines from the payroll, how do you think they will vote?
He must know how thoroughly despised he is. He deserves every second of fear he is experiencing. As arrogant as the O_b_tard is, he must understand that actions have consequences.
Soon, the only ones (legally) holding guns will be the Obamanoid “Hmeland Security” JBT’s.
He’s afraid of ending up like Anwar Sadat. Keep worrying, Obama.
You’re right. This policy goes way, way back.
No. It's been around for many years and several administrations.
But we don't want facts to get in the way of a good conspiracy.
“It sounds as though hussein is afraid of how own troops. I hope that he has a reason.”
Afraid of ending up Anwar Sadat
Bolts were normally in place except in very rare cases. An inaugural parade was one of those very few.
Some rifle tosses couldn’t be performed because the missing bolt shifted the weight enough to make the toss dangerous. These were not part of the “normal” Manual of Arms. :=)
I feel that most of "his" troops would never back his war on Americans. That is why he is building his own army. This ass is a communists want to be dictator and millions of Americans just do not get it yet. Hopefully when they wake up it will be not too late to impeach him.
Early in the war in Iraq, my son was back filling for military police that had been deployed. W came to Montgomery and My son was one of the troops tasked with guarding AF 1 while it was on the ground. Most of the troops were not issued ammo. My boy and a few others had live ammo. I assume the most reliable troops had the ammo.
And there's going to be another 50 outraged replies to this thread that don't notice the several informed replies pointing out this was a long-standing policy.
There's a whole cottage industry blaming Obama for policies extending back through the GWB adminstration, Reagan, or even further back. This sort of nonsense destroys the credibility of legitimate criticism of Obama.
After Ft. Hood, perhaps they believe they’ve been infiltrated by muslims who would want to assassinate the POTUS or other high officials. It seems plausible to me.
You can bet your sweet bippy those Marines were not ASKED to be there but ORDERED to be there.
It has become quite obvious what Odumbo thinks of our military. Consequently, he is crapping in his drawers thinking one of them might just ‘off” him for what he has done to them. Shameful!
It’s fear of Romanian term limits.
He must remember Sadat's death, which goes to show that he knows something.
I think Hussein, knowing he is a fake Commander in Chief of our military, is afraid of the military having guns around him. His twisted mind thinks without a bolt on those guns, no military guy can hurt him.
Your son a member of the 20th in Montgomery by any chance?
College ROTC drill teams and US Marines?
Not exactly the same...
Obama won’t have those scary Bitter-Clinger Marines anywhere near him once he gets his Civilian National Security Force staffed and armed.
Not exactly the same...
The policy of not allowing functional weapons for anyone is exactly the same as it has been for decades.
I think at this point Obama has more to fear than just them.
Like I’ve said before: He is a walking Psychiatry textbook. Bless his heart, he needs to be moved to a nice place where he can’t hurt himself.
Time to disarm the Secret Service, too.
No, he’s in the 187th ANG.
Same 50 or so people will deny they can be manipulated by the media.
