    The reports talks about Cairo, not Libya.

    But it would explain why we have a dead Ambassador in Libya

    Please, PLEASE let this not be true.

    If they had our boys in that fucking shithole as security without ammo then someone needs their neck stretched.

    Using bullets to kill is offensive to Muslims.....they like to chop off heads.

    All of our embassy security folks should be armed with live ammo. I'm flabbergasted if they don't have live ammo. Who in bloody hell would have US Marines at an embassy in the ME with no ammo??

    Anyone breaking into an embassy is stepping onto US SOIL.

    The guards should shoot to kill.

    "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.”

    It will be like Holder acting as an accessory in Brian Terry's murder, don't expect Obama to cooperate with the investigation or provide any information
