Could it be true?
Were the U.S. Marines prohibited from carrying live ammunition for their weapons?
If so, how could they possibly protect diplomats? Maybe with fixed bayonets? Maybe?
The Washington Free Beacon is reporting the no-ammo story. Supposedly, Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson denied permission to the Marines to carry ammo. If so, Patterson and Hillary Clinton should be dispatched to protect the embassy. Let them follow the advice of the Illinois State Police and use nail files, if attacked.
