    Consulates rarely if ever have a Marine guard.

    A stunning report released Wednesday night at the national security newsletter NightWatch says that U.S. Marines guarding the embassy in Cairo were not allowed to carry live ammunition, thereby limiting their ability to protect the facility when it came under attack...

    It does not make sense that in a hot spot such as this, especially on the anniversary security was not allowed to be properly armed. Moreover, these rioters did not just show up and scale the wall in seconds, it took a great deal of time. Long enough to get the required ammunition if this is true. However, the Pentagon denies that this is true anf that soldiers did have ammunition.

    A Marine spokesperson at the Pentagon denied the Free Beacon’s report in a statement to Fox News.

    Pentagon Lt Col Chris Hughes told the outlet: “The Ambassador and RSO have been completely and appropriately engaged with the security situation. No restrictions on weapons or weapons status have been imposed. This information comes from the Det Commander at AMEMB Cairo.”

    doesnt make any sense to have unarmed US forces

    But what is illegal is to have a foreign military force to protect an embassy

    What is allowed is to use paid private security officers to protect staff.

    SUch as the criminal Balckwater security thugs that are slaughtering civilians in places such as Iraq and then asking questions later

    When you use sources and express yourself in a coherent manner making cohesive statements we shall talk. Until then I am eating animals crackers together with Chia seeds and yogurt just reading this wonderful thread.

    Trained Marines are being treated like Barney Fife?

    US Foreign Policy has gone completely haywire.

    Slightly off topic, but are you aware rules of engagement on the orders of US commanders in Afghan are now so constraining that troops cannot open fire on Taliban fighters ;with Weapons in their hands. The Taliban has to be engaging Troops first.

    sounds like youre on a very nutritious and healthy diet

    I should be able to lift my intellectual capacity so that I can attain the sublime cerebral standards you have set for me as a person by the end of April 2014.

    Until then you may have to put up with the truth - I realise there is pain involved when self appraising the USA in an open and honest way, but it must be done I'm afraid
