    The U.S. ambassador to any nation ultimately decides whether Marines are authorized to carry ammunition, according to a GOP national security adviser knowledgeable about American embassy protocols.

    “In the end, the ambassador of any country has the final call on what to do in a country,” the source said. “The buck stops with you. You make every decision.”

    Security procedures are subjective and subject to change depending on locale, the source said.

    Each ambassador, in consultation with their Regional Security Officer (RSO), sets the policy regarding the rules of engagement, according to the adviser. The RSO is responsible for coordinating all security measures and reports directly to the ambassador in any given nation.

    What the hell does the Obama administration expect from the Marines they appoint to protect the embassies? Are we back in the days of Peanut Man Carter where Marines are ordered to surrender rather than protect the Flag and the Ambassador? The world is upside down to liberals.

    "A Marine spokesperson at the Pentagon denied reports that U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition in a statement to Fox News Thursday"


    How do we know this is true? Are they telling the media what they have been told to say? Sorry but too many people have lied and have people have died because of it.

    So now you're declaring that multiple Marines are lying? The sole bit of evidence you had was an unsourced anonymous claim from a blog, but unbelievably, you take that over the word of the Marines themselves.

    You guys are off the rails in the way you willingly fall for every idiot conspiracy theory that helps you hate Obama. No matter how retarded the conspiracy is, you all believe it without question, define it as absolutely true, and no amount of real world evidence can ever change your mind.

    Now, for more reasonable people, here's one actual response from the Marines.

    Subject: Marines in Libya and Egypt

    Ladies and Gentlemen-

    The following information is provided regarding Marine involvement in the recent actions in Egypt and Libya:

    Egypt:
    -The Ambassador did not impose restrictions on weapons or weapons status on the Marine Corps Embassy Security Group (MCESG) detachment. The MCESG Marines in Cairo were allowed to have live ammunition in their weapons. The Ambassador and Regional Security Officer have been completely and appropriately engaged with the security situation. Reports of Marines not being able to have their weapons loaded per direction from the Ambassador are not accurate.

    How many marines would it take to make embassys safe? In 2006 a new policy was implemented in teh State Department, the name of the new policy was Transformational Diplomacy and one of its purposes was to put diplomats in positions that didn't sound exactly safe. But then can an embassy ever be completely safe?

    Eight Marines held off 300 to 500 determined Japanese Soldiers during a nightlong series of repeated assaults the night of October 24-25, 1942 on the Island of Guadalcanal. Mr Obama and Ms Clinton could not afford such an event to mar their policy of reset with the Muslim world. Some have labeled the policy as appeasement, instead. The administration hired a British Firm who promised no bullets would be used. The Brits then turned around and hired locals who performed their own version of the saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." They turned the Ambassador and his troup over to the murdering thugs as demanded and fled. Libya must be an amazing place. Even simple goat herders could afford the i phones to take pictures of the nearly dead ambassador being sodomized to death with a steel pipe.
