Marine Security Guards Become Crises Reaction Forces

My daughter is currently serving at her second posting as a member of this elite group.

“In the wake of Benghazi, I think there’s an expectation that Marines and sailors will be there and respond within hours to a threat against our diplomatic corps, U.S. citizens or interests abroad.” — CMC Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr. at the Senate Armed Services Committe Testimony | January 28, 2015

Being a U.S. Embassy Security Guard may traditionally have had as much appeal as standing on a busy mall acting as a slug-eyed meme in a costume.

Recent Benghazi, Libya, Turkey, Pakistan, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Egypt and Mali embassy and diplomatic mission attacks in some of the 175 embassies worldwide, the job has been redefined as a crisis-reaction one.

Dec 2009, Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45, chief of the CIA base in Afghanistan and seven of her staff were killed by an informant after claiming to have infiltrated al-Qaeda’s innermost circle, staged a suicide attack, killing the seven eight U.S. operatives. Matthews had been deployed to Afghanistan to a CIA operating base seven months before her murder. She was recognized as one of the CIA’s top experts on al-Qaeda and terrorism.

April 10, 2010, grenade and car bomb wielding terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate and the Pakistani intelligence headquarters in Peshawar, Pakistan, in simultaneous attacks. 50 were killed, none Americans.

In 2011, the U.S. warned of attacks on the embassy in Mali and in 2012, demonstrators stoned the embassy in Mali.

In Sept, 2012, Demonstrators attacked the U.S. embassies in Yemen and Egypt, protesting the film made in the U.S., the “Innocence of Muslims,” that portray Mohammad as a womanizer, a homosexual and a child abuser. That week U.S. ambassador Stephens was killed in Benghazi, Libya that week. That same year in Kandahar province, Afghanistan terrorists attacked a U.S. Army convoy carrying an Embassy employee, killing a U.S. soldier. Also in 2012, multiple attempts were made against U.S. embassies and diplomatic missions throughout Afghanistan and in the Philippines. In Egypt, protestors stormed a U.s embassy.

11 September the attack on the U.S. Special Mission, a mission annes, and on U.S. convoys that killed the U.S. ambassador Stevens and three other U.S. personnel took the center stage for terror attacks against U.S. embassies that year.

IN February 2013, a suicide bomber detonated 6 kilograms (13 lb) of trinitrotoluene (TNT) and a hand grenade—at the United States embassy in Ankara, killing a Turkish security guard and wounding three others, including a journalist.

The previous list is just highlights some of the more publicized attacks on U.S. mission.

U.S. Marines to be deployed as security guards have to undergo special training in weapons and tactics.
