Trickle Down Danger

Can someone please explain why the Marines were stationed at the Egyptian Embassy at all [WITHOUT AMMO]?  How can they be denied ammo that could save lives?  Is the Obama Administration out of their minds?  You know how the Dems blasted "Trickle Down Economics" under Reagan?  

This is "Trickle Down Danger"!

If this turns out to be true, the Ambassador to Egypt Ann Patterson should be tried for treason.  I imagine it goes higher than her though.

REPORTS: No Live Ammo for Marines

Marine blogs say U.S. embassy did not authorize service members to carry ammo

U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.
Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”

U.S. officials have yet to confirm or comment on the reports. Time magazine’s Battleland blog reported Thursday “Senior U.S. officials late Wednesday declined to discuss in detail the security at either Cairo or Benghazi, so answers may be slow in coming.”

If true, the reports indicate that Patterson shirked her obligation to protect U.S. interests, Nightwatch states.
