This was the first question that came to my mind. I have been to an American Embassy in a very friendly country where there were many armed Marines in full view and probably many more unseen. How could this have happened in a country in turmoil being taken over by islamists? Who could be so incompetent as to not have full security for all American installations that our Ambassador would visit or where embassy personnel would be stationed? And the Egypt ambassador ensures that the marines present at that Embassy are not armed!?! This is PC idiocy so far over the top as to be criminal. And they are going after Romney for his remarks. Well, the truth hurts, but someone's has to say it.
