More criminal negligence coming from the Obama administration. It seems that the US Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson did not allow the US Marines who had been charged with guarding the Embassy compound in Cairo to actually carry any live ammunition. The only reason I can think of for this is that the Ambassador was afraid that armed Marines might "cause an incident" despite the fact that an incident was already caused by the marauding hordes violating international law by invading our embassy compound and by the Egyptian government not defending our compound as they are legally bound to do. This also speaks volumes of how little the folks at the State Department think of our Armed Forces personnel. All you have to say is "don't fire unless there is an imminent danger to our lives" and a Marine will follow those orders. You don't have to take away their ammunition and leave everyone defenseless if the worst case comes to pass (as it did in Libya).
