Katie Couric, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked:
Great question Doug, especially a police officer that shot someone protecting her.
I'd be remiss not to share the following, and to admire the bluntness of the Armed forces , and to their apparent ability to drop liberals jaws.....
Unfortunately, it's been proven false by Snopes. But I love the sentiment anyway....
This is a reported portion (disproved later by Snopes.com) of a National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.
(I this is one of the best comeback lines of all time… )---
So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.
Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
But you're equipping them to become violent killers.
Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you’re not one, are you?
The radio went silent and the interview ended. All over America, people were thinking: Semper Fi, Marine !
