US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta afraid of our own troops - US Soldiers had to disarm during Panetta's Speech

U.S. Soldiers asked to disarm during Leon Panetta speech
US soldiers were asked to disarm during a speech by Leon Panetta, the American defense secretary, in a sign of grown concern over spates of seemingly random violence in Afghanistan.


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."

Their afraid of something like the beginning of the movie "No Escape" when Ray Liotta is marching in a parade and shoots the commanding officer in the head.

Some Major General said the reason for disarming the Americans was because the Afghan military that were present were unarmed and they wasted uniformity.

To this I say BULLSHIT. If uniformity is so important to this fucking idiot, then they should have ARMED the Afghans.

Panetta is an Olympic caliber asshole yet he is one of the "best" in Obama's regime.

Until this cuntry fights wars the same way they did on Iwo Jima the military is fucked. Tells you what disgraceful, low life Scum are in charge these days. I've got your "rules of engagement" right here. Same goes for the mean streets in America.

I can't remember all the details, but Odumbshit visited one of the military academies a few years ago and made everyone leave their dress swords off.

I guess I would've said fuck Panetta and not gone to see him rather than leave my weapon behind in Afgoatfuckistan.

Fucking nigger lover.

American soldiers do not randomly kill. Ever.

A few may misinterpret their mission status and make a judgmental error but you ll get that in war zone.

God bless our troops*. * this Does not apply to muslim double agents who do not believe in god anyhow.

During the 1st Gulf war when president Bush Sr. addressed the troops, they were disarmed. When Bush jr was there they were also disarmed. So what's your point?

Watch your six. Marines don't like being called soldiers. If necessary, call them naval infantry.
