"The Long Legged Mac-Daddy"
In an incident that underlines this administrations contempt for the Marines, 200 Marines were forced to Disarm and leave their weapons outside a tent where the U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was set to speak.
This is a highly unusual request since Marines in a combat zone are always supposed to have weapons within their reach. Normally, American Military keep their weapons with them when the defense secretary visits the fact that this was done today is very troubling!
According to reporters at Camp Leatherneck, the Marines were waiting to hear Panetta’s speech when they were abruptly told by their commander to get up, leave their weapons, including M16 and M-4 automatic rifles and 9 mm pistols, outside and return unarmed.I think this is a slap in the face to everyone who has been asked to put their lives on the line over there. And what kind of message does it send to the enemy when our government is basically saying that THEY DO NOT TRUST THE MILITARY?
I also believe that this is a telling move from the administration. In my opinion it signals not only an assault on the Marine Corp but the coming assault on everyone’s second amendment rights.
