Marines in Afghanistan ordered disarmed near Panetta

Secretary of Defense Forces Marines to Disarm

In what many in the military are calling an unprecedented attack on our military, 200 Marines at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan were forced to disarm and leave their weapons outside of the camp. The orders were given to 200 Marines who were gathered to hear U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta speak.This is a very troubling story! Normally the Marines are always supposed to have their weapons with them in a war zone. And in the past they have always been allowed to keep them no matter who was speaking. And why wouldn’t they – they are supposed to be the ones protecting these political figures in the war zone.
