In a highly unusual move, around 200 U.S. Marines were asked to leave their weapons outside the tent where U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was set to speak during his trip to Afghanistan on Wednesday.
He [Maj. Gen. Mark Gurganus] said he had given the order because the two dozen Afghan soldiers also there were unarmed and he did not want to treat them differently.
Murdered Afghans, murdered Marines… all the same to Panetta. He knows any and all of the people he’s so brutally abused in Afghanisan are as likely to kill him as look at him. Probably more likely to kill him than listen to him.
Part of the drill when you’re a War Criminal. At least his bodyguards didn’t kill any disarmed Marines.
