Gimme Back My Bullets

Filed under: Military,Politics — The Professor @ 4:22 pm

There are reports originating on USMC blogs now ricocheting around the interwebs that US Marines guarding the US Embassy in Cairo were not permitted to carry live ammo.  (The Beaufort Observer located near Paris Island also reported on this.)

FWIW. The Pentagon denies this.

And WIW?  Not much.

Regardless of the truth of this particular rumor, it is plain that the security in Cairo, and especially in Benghazi, was criminally lax.  Local security-clearly vulnerable to penetration by terrorists.  Insecure building.  No robust US military presence.

Not that you’ll learn this with the MSM, which is one-half of the beast with two backs-the administration being the other  half.
