Los Angeles Times: Marine Held as Police Seize Plastic Explosives http://latimes.com/news/local/la-000060441jul24.story?coll=la%2Dheadlines%2Dcalifornia IN BRIEF / OCEANSIDE Marine Held as Police Seize Plastic Explosives From Times Staff and Wire Reports July 24 2001 A Marine at Camp Pendleton was arrested after police allegedly found him in a motel with a 1-pound block of C-4 plastic explosives apparently smuggled off the military base. David T. Holden, 18, was taken into custody early Saturday after police said he and three other Marines were found with the C-4 and a small amount of drugs in a room at the Beachwood Motel. Marines use C-4 during training exercises but are prohibited from taking it off the base. It is sought by terrorist groups on the black market. Copyright 2001, Los Angeles Times

How long until Feinstein uses this to justify more gun control laws?

Forget rock stars... Marines know how to trash a hotel room, but good.

There are plenty of terrorist purchasing agents in Oceanside looking for dopey boots who will do stupid things in exchange for cash, drugs, booze,women, etc. I remember listening to the stories during NIS counter terrorist/ espionage briefings, and how most of those caught were not aware of the true nature of their dealing.

Trashing a hotel is considered to be a fine art. I never asked about the pool or anything else....It was always, "how much is this place insured for?" Seriously, I hate it when a young Marine(or any other service) gets in trouble for something stupid. I was fortunate to have had strong NCOs that taught me what NOT to do....or at least how not to get caught. But, if they were doing drugs.....FRAG 'em. Semper Fi! Lew

I knew it was just a matter of time before the Marine-haters posted this... [:D][/sarcasm] Seriously, if he did it, they oughta hang him by his balls until the crows have picked his bones clean. Stupid bastard should have thought about how his actions could embarrass the Marine Corps, and who was going to end up with that C4. Does the USS Cole ring a bell? [pissed] Jarhead out.

If you don't consider a pound of C-4 interesting, I pity you!

The drugs are a definite no-go, but what's wrong with bringing home a little C-4 to do some fishing? Sure as heck is better than "beating the water" all day with a fishing rod and some smelly worms.

The coolest thing about the guys on this board is the thought process. This story's message is: Marines on drugs=BAD, "borrowed" C4="interesting".
