They are serving this country in an area where they are not welcomed. They are sacrificing a great deal, away from home, away from their loved ones. And our leaders decide that they want a group of soldiers to leave their firearms OUTSIDE of a meeting hall where the Secretary of Defense was to address them.
So there they are……. potential targets gathered in a group, with no means of defense. What was to stop any of the Afghani’s from forging a quick attack? There are still unanswered questions over the thwarted attack as Panetta arrived. And the country is still reeling from the Koran burnings and the weekend massacre at the hands of one of our soldiers.
Or was our Secretary of Defense fearful of his own troops?
So, what say you!!
