    Less than a week after a US staff sergeant allegedly massacred 16 civilians in Kandahar, American soldiers were banned from bringing guns into a talk by Mr Panetta at a base in Helmand province.



    Around 200 troops who had gathered in a tent at Camp Leatherneck were told "something had come to light" and asked abruptly to file outside and lay down their automatic rifles and 9mm pistols.



    "Somebody got itchy, that's all I've got to say. Somebody got itchy – we just adjust," said the sergeant who was told to clear the hall of weapons.



    Major General Mark Gurganus later said he gave the order because Afghan troops attending the talk were unarmed and he wanted the policy to be consistent for all.



    "You've got one of the most important people in the world in the room," he told the New York Times, insisting that the decision was unrelated to Sunday's killings. "This is not a big deal."

    So our Defense Secretary is afraid now that Marines may go on a shooting rampage while he's around and murder him? These are Marines, I doubt they would need a weapon to take out this fool if they wanted him dead. Way to insult them more.

    I'm at a loss for words at the stupidity of this move and the implications that go along with it.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I guess that we should be grateful that he let them have their weapons back before they went back into combat. He did let them have them back, right?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

    Just a test run off what they have designed for the entire American populace. A harbinger of the vision for the future the Dimorats envision.
