    To be honest -- it's highly suspect. It's from 2010; and it's based on an anonymous source from an unidentified location.

    Rear areas, especially around ISAF headquarters (ISAF is mentioned in the article) were given instructions to unload weapons when in the Afghan HQ compounds; but were loaded (not chambered) when travelling to/from those locations. Me and my guys, we always unloaded at the main gate in front of the Afghans, then discretely re-loaded when they weren't looking.

    I normally don't think much of Snopes.com, at least not in the last few years, but they effectively debunked this, and it was just posted in the last 24 hours.

    In other words, bogus as a $3 bill.
