Report: Obama Ambassador in Egypt Forbids US Marines From Carrying Live Ammo …Update: Pentagon Denies Report

Unbelievable. The US Ambassador to Egypt forbids US Marines at the embassy from carrying live rounds.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:

U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.

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.”

U.S. officials have yet to confirm or comment on the reports. Time magazine’s Battleland blog reported Thursday “Senior U.S. officials late Wednesday declined to discuss in detail the security at either Cairo or Benghazi, so answers may be slow in coming.”

If true, the reports indicate that Patterson shirked her obligation to protect U.S. interests, Nightwatch states.

UPDATE: The Pentagon later today denied this report.

    We have so many criminals in the current administration, we may require the equivalent to the Nurnberg trials. This ambassador has criminally neglected her responsibilities. Holder and Napolitano are implicated in Fast & Furious. Holder’s also implicated in numerous actions where he and his political appointees interfered with official business, overruling career professionals and ignoring the law. We learn as of yesterday that HHS Secretary Sebelius violated the Hatch Act and should be punished, though we know Obama — the lawbreaker-in-chief — will almost certainly do nothing.

    And going along with them all is a criminally corrupt news media that functions as an extra-legal Democratic party machine. No wonder the left must win at all costs.

    Since its out and about… its all but an open secret that most US soldiers stationed anywhere are not giving ammo. Outside of MPs its rare to find armed US soldiers. Sure they carry guns with mags in the breech but they have no bullets.

    The easiest way wipe out the US military would be to host “joint exercises” and then attack them because its well known that during most “joint exercises” the military is forbidden from carrying live ammo or even blanks… while other countries will have fully armed soldiers doing the same training, often timing standing right next to the ammo less US soldiers.

    And now that it has been announced that the few Marines guarding the US Embassy in Cairo are not permitted to even CARRY live ammo, never mind load it, by a do-nothing political appointee of a do-nothing “president” who hasn’t even bothered to attend his national intelligence briefings, even on the day after a US Ambassador was brutally raped and murdered, the US Embassy in Cairo will be overrun tomorrow by the maddening hordes.

    I say we put Libs and their families in the embassies and then ask them if they want marines to carry live ammo.

    If I was not allowed to do so as a marine there. I would quit, refuse duty or request transfer as the idiot wont give them the tools to do their job safely.

    They probably couldn’t get ammunition after all the different federal domestic agencies that bought hundreds of millions of rounds to use against … us?

    Assuming this report is accurate, this ambassador should be removed from the post immediately. Embassy workers are being put at risk for the sake of political correctness.

    “If the Ambassador doesn’t issue bullets, the marines should find some way to get their hands on some. ”

    The embassy more then likely still keeps the ammo in its arms room. The problem is when bullets start flying the civs hide… and finding the muti-ppl and keys/combos needed to open said room takes time. Time that generally is not there. One of the reasons I always carried a wide range of knives was because you never knew when you would be placed in a dangerous “event” and be purposely left ammo less. Knives even fighting knives are pretty easy to keep hidden from the civs when on duty. Due to the way some embassies are setup it can be somewhat easy to engage in hand to hand combat at a choke point giving you at least the chance if trapped inside to hold out. Knife fighting is basically a lost but very very important art of combat. More so for the US Military in which it is all to common to be left with guns…. but no ammo for them.

  • Chris in N.Va.

    While remaining discrete, I will mention that when I was in the USAF stationed at a DoD facility here in the U.S. (back in the early 1970s, when various terrorist groups were also flexing their muscles), the Marine guards manning the building entrances were not allowed to have a clip in their holstered .45 sidearms.

    The ammo clips were to be kept safe and sound in their spiffy little white belt pouches. (“Excuse me, Sir, but could you halt your attack momentarily while I take the time to lock-and-load? Thank you so very much!”)

    Fortunately the ones who patrolled the greater area outside in jeeps with a variety of other weaponry were not so stupidly restricted.

    Nice to know our self-important Ambassadors are of similar mental capacity as the aforementioned side arms (look nice on the outside but empty and ineffectual on the inside). Typical of politicians and petty bureaucrats worldwide — small caliber and immense bore.

    That seems very very odd. Most of the time they have local forces in front of the embassy to act as a buffer so that US guards are not directly pitted again the home country population. Normally what happens is the locals up and leave in these arab countries when a riot is scheduled. They are often given days sometimes weeks of notice before these events. I have never heard of an embassy that was strictly guarded solely to local country forces… however it is an obama world now anything is possible when it comes to pure insanity.

    this is actually a long term policy, the sitting ambassador makes the decision.

    In case of a breach in the compound defenses–and the Egyptian guards desert their posts/join in with the attackers–would there be time for Ambassador Patterson to reconsider her decision and let the Marines load their weapons with live ammo?

    Does she not realize that she & other American women in the compound would be violated by the mob?

    The day this story broke, I was wondering how three Marines lost their lives in this fiasco, with no reports of any dead protestors. I mentioned it to my wife, and we both concluded that something just didn’t add up. Now, it all makes sense … sort of. How stupid is it to station defenseless Marines at a foreign embassy, surrounded by an angry, anti-American populous? You just have to wonder if, at some point, the military isn’t going to tire of this nonsense …

    just a sample:

    Obama (#13 – page 1)

    [Illinois: The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks. At a “Democratic Unity” march on Chicago’s West Side, a flyer invited community members to join with a host of local democratic candidates. The only two west-side Democrats not listed: NP members Danny Davis (U.S. House candidate) and Michael Chandler (Alderman and Ward Committeeman).]

    Obama’s Papa (“PROBLEMS FACING OUR SOCIALISM”)

    [“There is a statement made on nationalization [in Sessional Paper No.
    10]. True there are cases in which nationalization is bad, but there are,
    likewise, quite a few benefits to be derived from it. On this subject I
    would like to refer the authors to Prof. Bronferbrenner’s [sic] work on
    the “Appeals for confiscation in Economic Development”* [sic — the
    referenced article is titled “The Appeal of Confiscation in Economic
    Development”]. Nationalization should not be looked at only in terms
    of profitability alone, but also, or even more, on the benefit to society
    that such services render and on its importance in terms of public
    interest ..”]

    Obama’s Mama (will post more later)

    [When Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii, she was a full fledged radical
    leftist and practitioner of “Critical Theory” (Is the examination and
    critique of society and culture.. Which had two different meaning”
    .. a stricter Marxist as a revisionism or visionary.]

    Obama’s Uncle Jerry (#6 – page 2)

    [Islam and BLT are theologies that have a political goal of making
    all politics submit to their demands. Submission is the political goal.]

    Obama’s Aunt Frances (#17 – page 1)

    She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, andfinally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. [.]

    In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation
    (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls
    on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force.
    As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle.
    Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular
    in the 60s.

    “So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations,
    sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes.[.]

    and then there’s the Ayer’s, Khalidi’s, Farrakhan’s, al-
    Mansour, Black Panthers, Rezko, Auchi, etc, etc, etc..

    RE: 1983 Beirut truck bomb that killed 241 Marines, from Deseret News
    “To signal they were neutral in the civil war, the Marines were stationed between warring factions. They made their base at Beirut International Airport — the tactically unwise low ground.

    They carried weapons, but the rules of engagement mostly forbade them from keeping a round in the chamber. They had orders not to shoot unless they were direct targets and knew for sure who had fired first.”

    and, from Wikipedia
    ” President Ronald Reagan appointed a military fact-finding committee… to investigate the bombing. The commission’s report found senior military officials responsible for security lapses and blamed the military chain of command for the disaster. It suggested that there might have been many fewer deaths if the barracks guards had carried loaded weapons…”

    in August 2011, over 20 SEALs were murdered in an inappropriate slow-moving helicopter because of incompetent (or worse?) senior leadership (how high up?)
    aside: the reported bin Laden raid was May 2011… just wanted to keep the timeline in order

    I agree with #16. If we aren’t going to arm our Marine guards then what are they there for? What “protecting” can they do with no ammo for their weapons? And if this dumb bi*ch Anne Patterson should change her mind after the killings around the countryside then it’s to damn late for the Marines in Libya. And Obama thinks he can tell the family members who listen to him on TV and the radio and that is supposed to bring them solice, he’s got another think coming. He will never find these guys and neither will the Libyan security police or their military counter part. When the people themselves all over the country are committed to bringing about this Islamic takeover then they certainly aren’t going to be civilized about it in any way.

    I hate this bi*ch Anne Patterson!! She is guilty of murder just as if she was the very people who pulled the trigger killing our brave men who are risking their very lives at the hands of the State Dept. They have nothing to say that’s why they are not saying anything about the Marines not having any way to do the protecting they were given to do!! I believe she should be arrested and charge with neglect of duty and willful endangerment of the Marines under her charge!! I want her to feel the same terror these brave Marines had to have felt trying to figure out how they were going to escape death. I want her to suffer badly. I want her to go to the families of all these people who were murdered in Libya. She should be executed just like these Marines were.

    Whether the Marines had ammo or not, the Egytians attached our country. The last time someone attached us, 911, we went and killed the offenders. If the countries at hand do not want to take on the problem let us kill them. One more thought, what would the Russians do?

    I wonder what would happen if there was an embassy from another country in the US where armed guards shot down US civilians for protesting something against that country.

    Let’s not forget that a villian is a hero in his own story. We see them as terrorists, but might it be possible that we give enough justification to be seen as the same from their perspective?
