In 'highly unusual' move, Marines asked to disarm before Leon Panetta speech
In the wake of the recent Afghanistan massacre, the D.C. establishment are becoming more aware of the animosity and tensions that are overwhelming the U.S. military. Take notice however, that the reactions to such realizations are not efforts to lessen or relieve the torments facing our troops; but to protect and shield those in power who take cover behind police and provoke wars for others to fight. Whether it's the anti-protest law, a new crowd control device or disarming troops; the powers that be are preparing for an uprising.
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.
Although the military said the order was not given in response to Sunday's shooting of 16 Afghan civilians allegedly by an American soldier, it possibly underlined how high tensions were running after the incident.
