Pat (one of my readers) informed me that I had gotten an important part of the TN incident wrong. I went with the idea that the slain Marines were on recruiting duty. They were not. These Marines were either on I&I duty or drilling reservists.
I appreciate the correction and wanted to set the record straight. One thing I did get right though...we should do EVERYTHING in our power to prevent this from happening again. Marines should not be placed in positions where they cannot defend themselves. It is beyond obvious that the US has been infiltrated by terrorists due to our immigration laws and that these people are targeting the military. With that being the case it is past time Recruiters and I&I personnel were armed.
