The Sick News Report Of The Year: Marine Guards In Egypt Not Allowed To Carry Live Ammo

With tip of the Stetson to Instapundit for the link, The Washington Free Beacon reports Marine guards at Silary Clinton’s Cairo embassy are not allowed to carry live ammunition.

Briefly quoting the Washington Free Beacon report, you may be well advised to reach for the barf bag, linked above:

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.”

Of course, Secretary of State Silary Clinton’s husband Willie is the one who disarmed our military in the first place, leading to tragedies like the Fort Hood massacre, and the Benghazi massacre. So I suppose we should not be surprised that embassy guards have also been disarmed and rendered helpless in the combat zone Cairo has become. But a lack of surprise should not mean a lack of outrage.

This is nothing less than reckless disregard for the lives of embassy personnel and their Marine guards. Everyone involved should be dismissed from the diplomatic service and someone with los coronas as big as a boar hog’s put in their place.

    This report turned out to be a hoax perpetrated by radio talk show host Jay Severin. The Marine guards were not disarmed or deprived of live rounds at any time.

    I am friends with the Marine who guarded Anne Patterson in Cairo all through the revolution and all the tumult in Tahir square and at the embassy in Cairo until only a couple of months ago when he was transferred to another country and he has assured me that this store was untrue.
