Obama's Libya Lies: Worse Than Watergate

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Do you realize an American was arrested because of this lie?  An American citizen! I know he was arrested ostensibly on a bank fraud payroll violation, and everybody knows that's a crock. 

The death of our ambassador and three other Americans was chalked up in a UN speech and for eight days after or longer to a video that nobody ever saw. Now the State Department has essentially said: "We didn't link the Libya attack to the video.  We didn't do that! That wasn't us."  Quote: "The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video..."

So some top officials at the State Department, folks, are unwilling to fall on their swords and take the blame for the lies about the Benghazi attack.  The Administration Press, the AP, is reporting that State Department officials have briefed reporters about what really happened at the US consulate there, and they say they never linked the attack to anti-Muslim video.  By the way, the State Department had a conference call yesterday and they neglected to invite Fox News. 

Imagine that. 

It was an oversight, an oversight.  Jay Carney, the White House spokeskid, has not faced the press in over a week and a half.  There hasn't been a White House press briefing.  I'll tell you, I'm getting the sense that the wheels are falling off.  There's something else that's happening.  You know, Jack Welch came out among many and said that the unemployment number last week had to be wrong. There was something wrong with it. It had to be irregular.  It wasn't right. 

And, of course, everybody jumped on his case. The regime and even some conservative commentators said, "Jack, Jack, don't go there. There's no conspiracy here," and Jack Welch has doubled down.  He's got a piece in the Wall Street Journal that says (paraphrased), "I'm damn right about this.  I'm not backing down.  There's something highly unusual about this."  It was noted in a piece in the American Spectator today that you don't need Jack Welch.  You got me. 

I predicted a year ago that this unemployment number would be reported at this time under 8%.  How did I know?  Because it's not an economics issue; it's all political.  It's one of the easiest predictions I've ever made, that the unemployment would go down. All I had to learn was that no incumbent ever been elected, reelected with the unemployment rate over 8%. (chuckles) Well! Guess what's gonna happen in the month leading up to the election? 

The unemployment rate's gonna be under 8%. 

With this bunch in the White House, you'd be fool not to predict that. 

A lot of people in the media and some left-wing bloggers are starting to scratch their heads about the inability of Obama and other members of the campaign and the regime to stop talking about how badly he did in the debate.  "Okay, you had a bad night. Forget it; move on.  Why keep talking about it?  Why keep reminding people how badly Obama did?"  Ann Althouse in Michigan has an interesting theory about this, and I'll paraphrase her. 

She said, essentially, that the reason the campaign will not let go of how poorly Obama did is that they want everybody to think that's what happened.  It wasn't that Romney was good; it wasn't that Romney was anything special. The reason that debate happened the way it did is because Obama had an off night. Obama was the shock and surprise. Obama was off his game. Obama was pathetic. Obama was pitiful. 

You keep repeating it over and over and over again because you don't want people to realize how great Romney was.  That's her theory, and I like it.  It's unique. It's great thinking. There's another analysis out there that says that the regime has been totally preoccupied with making sure every week that they are the front-runners, that they are in the lead.  You do this for momentum, you do it for attitude, you do it for fundraising.

And the debate's thrown all that out of whack. 

The momentum is not with the regime and Obama. 

They're not perceived to be leading now in all the polling data.  Clearly the polling data is trending toward Romney now, particularly in independents, and there's a polling group...  Let me find this.  Suffolk Polling.  Suffolk Polling has pulled out of North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida.  Romney has won those states, in their view.  They're not even gonna waste any more time or money polling. 

I've never heard of 'em, I don't think, but they're there, and they have been actively polling, and they've decided to pull out, and they say that Romney's gonna win North Carolina, is gonna win Virginia, is gonna win Florida, and they don't need to poll anymore; they know this.  If that's true -- if that's true -- there really, really is something going on out there. And I, folks...

If you have been listening regularly to me, you know that I think there has been something big time going on out there for a long time. I talked a little bit yesterday about how I don't believe these wild gyrations and fluctuations in the polls.  I mean, I don't think massive numbers of Americans shift their opinions multiple times, drastically, as the polling data would indicate.  But the big story today is the State Department throwing Obama under the bus.

And, at the same time, throwing Hillary Clinton under the bus, which is a not-much-discussed aspect of this.  But I'm gonna tell you: These guys in the Obama camp can't even... I don't even think they can do a cover-up well.  It's amazing how incompetent they are at a cover-up.  But this is a huge story, because you have the State Department now basically saying that Obama was lying, that Jay Carney was lying, that Hillary Clinton was lying, that Susan Rice was lying.

Anybody else from the regime who went out and tried to blame what happened to our ambassador at Benghazi and in Cairo on this video was lying, big time.  Top officials at the State Department are unwilling to fall on their swords and take the blame for the lies.  The AP, Administration Press, is reporting State Department officials have briefed reporters (all except Fox, they weren't invited) about what really happened at the US consulate there, and they say that they never linked the attack to the anti-Muslim video.

"That was not our conclusion," and the question about linkage is for others to answer, which, if the State Department says we had nothing to do with it, where else did this lie originate? Where else could it have originated? The White House, which is quite telling. This is a major falling out here between the radical left State Department, the radical left White House. The State Department has thrown everybody at the regime overboard and under the bus on this. This ought to be the lead story. I mentioned yesterday or the day before in a brief monologue about how I think the current acceptance of all of this economic deterioration as the new norm is directly traceable to Bill Clinton and his moral failings and our being told that we had to accept that as the new norm.

I made the point here that this is bigger than Watergate. If Watergate were to happen today and it was a Democrat president, it would be tolerated. It would be applauded and praised as brilliant political strategerizing and foresight in thinking if the Democrats did it. But, folks, an American citizen is arrested, an American ambassador is dead, three other Americans are dead.

One of them, by the way, Mitt Romney -- we got the audio coming up if you haven't heard this -- knew one of the SEALs killed in the Benghazi attack. He met him by accident. Romney showed up at the wrong house in his neighborhood for a holiday party. He showed up at the wrong house, they let him come in anyway, and in the process he met a SEAL, admired him greatly. It turns out he was one of the four killed in Benghazi. We have the audio coming up. You'll hear this.

Remember that picture of the filmmaker all covered up, being dragged out of his house by sheriff's deputies out in California, trundled off to jail. Obama at the United Nations, Obama everywhere apologizing for this citizen, apologizing for our First Amendment, apologizing for freedom of speech, blaming the death our ambassador on the video. And we all knew the first time we heard that it was a lie. We all knew the video wasn't responsible for what happened in Benghazi. The regime said that there was a protest at the consulate and the protest got out of hand. We didn't have the proper security to handle it and it just escalated, and it was all brought on by the video.

No, there was no protest. That's the next thing the State Department says. There wasn't a protest. There wasn't anything that started innocently and got out of hand. It was a terror attack from the get-go. And the president and Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton and Jay Carney and whoever else they threw out lied for eight to ten days, maybe two weeks. I've put together audio montages of all of this for you to hear.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Do you remember, the administration spent $70,000 running a television ad campaign in Pakistan featuring Hillary Clinton, featuring Obama apologizing for the video?  Obama went to the UN and apologized to the world for the video.  The producer of the video, nobody, nobody has any idea now who he is, arrested at 1:30 in the morning.  Plenty of cameras there and lights on a bank fraud parole violation.  Seventy thousand ad buy, television, we played the audio for you from that ad.  Where is Hillary Clinton?  I haven't seen her.  Nobody died in Watergate, let alone an ambassador.  This is outrageous.  It is unreal what has happened here.  Knowingly blaming a video and insulting everybody's intelligence in thinking that people would buy this. 

And, in the process, what was Obama actually doing?  Exonerating terrorists.  The terrorists who killed the ambassador, who attacked our embassy consulate in Benghazi, is exonerated. It wasn't their fault. It was the video.  You know why that is?  Well, because Obama Killed Osama, and along with that he killed Al-Qaeda.  So Al-Qaeda couldn'ta done this. It had to be the video because Obama, why, he killed Al-Qaeda.  Obama's our hero. He's our dragon slayer. He got rid of the bad guys. There aren't any more terrorists.  Uh-oh.  Terrorists just killed our ambassador and attacked our consulate.  Nah, nah, video did that. 

From the Administration Press, the AP: "Al-Qaeda Making Comeback in Iraq, Officials Say."  Right on schedule, Obama proudly proclaims the war in Iraq is over. We're out of there. It was an unjust and unnecessary war.  And Al-Qaeda is making a comeback in Iraq.  Al-Qaeda is making a comeback in Egypt. Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are making comebacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  And the president of the United States blames the American Constitution, the First Amendment, and a guy that makes a video that was on YouTube in June.  Here's the first of several montage sound bites about all of this.

OBAMA:  I don't care how offensive this video was, it was terribly offensive and we should shun it.

HILLARY:  This video is disgusting and reprehensible.  It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.

CARNEY:  Let's be clear.  These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region.

OBAMA:  You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character, an extremely offensive video.

CARNEY:  The unrest we've seen has been in reaction to a video.

OBAMA:  A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.

RICE:  It was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video.

OBAMA:  I know there are some who ask, "Why don't we just ban such a video?"  The answer is enshrined in our laws.  Our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech.

RUSH:  In that montage you heard President Obama, you heard Hillary Clinton, you heard Jay Carney, who has not been heard from in a week or two, the White House press briefings.  You heard Susan Rice, who said it was spontaneous, not premeditated.  Wrongo.  State Department.  Now, you might say, "Why is the State Department coming clean?"  They're showing up under oath today in front of a congressional committee.  They will be under oath.  They are decidedly not gonna commit perjury for Barack Obama.  I guess they couldn't find Bill Clinton. 

They couldn't find Bill Clinton because he's out on the campaign trail telling everybody that will listen that the real Mitt Romney was not the guy at the debate.  The real Mitt Romney is the guy we're putting in the ads. (imitating Clinton) "I don't know who that guy was.  That was a poser, a great impersonator, but that wasn't the real Mitt Romney.  The real Mitt Romney is the one you've seen in our ads."  So they couldn't find anybody to lie under oath.  Clinton's on the campaign trail, State Department says, "Ahhh, we're not doing it. The video had nothing to do with it.  There was no protest.  It was premeditated by Al-Qaeda."  Let's go back, Barack Obama, September 25th, United Nations General Assembly.

OBAMA:  That is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, is a crude and disgusting video, sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.  Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.  It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.

RUSH:  They have to be laughing themselves silly at us.  They have to be laughing themselves silly at Barack Obama.  If they're not laughing at Obama and instead applauding Obama, then we got a bigger problem than anybody thinks.  So we hope that the terrorists around the world are laughing at the guy, not applauding him.  But my friends, this is almost indescribable, the scope of this.  This is a scandal.  I mean, nothing happened in the Bush administration that even approaches this.  Watergate doesn't approach this.  On and on and on, lying about a video, arresting an American citizen, $70,000 ad buy in Pakistan to advertise the lie.  

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, another reason that this scandal is so big and so important is because not only did they deflect blame after the terror attack to the maker of some video nobody saw and then arrest the guy without bail, keeping him in jail -- and going on television and running ads blaming the video for a week and sending everybody out. The fact of the matter is, there were threats. There was intel.

There were a number of threats of terrorist activity, planned attacks against our consulate and the embassy in Libya. They were ignored by the administration. Ambassador Stevens, now deceased, begged for help! We know this now. We know that he knew, or thought because of intel, that an attack was imminent. He wanted a barbed wire fence. It was refused! There was no acknowledgement that the threat was real.

There was no effort made to protect the ambassador, no effort whatsoever made to prepare for an attack. All that happened was on the day of the attack, our embassy in Cairo issues an apology before anything happens, an apology for this video, hoping that the apology for the video -- which nobody had seen and, frankly, few knew what the embassy was even talking about. I didn't know that this video existed when they apologized for it. I'd never heard of it.

I'm sure 99.9% of people in the world had never heard of it, and yet they're apologizing for it. We're told, "Well, we just want to make sure that they know that we're not the enemy and we don't wish them any ill harm and we don't want them to attack us." Right. Conflict Resolution 101. Express your guilt and then say you're sorry and then beg 'em not to do any more to you, and all they do is laugh at us.

Now, US News & World Report is saying that there's a damage control meeting at the White House this afternoon between President Obama and Mrs. Clinton. It's a Washington Post story today: "The fatal attack on a US diplomatic compound in Libya last month has become a test of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s leadership and a threat to her much-admired legacy as America’s top diplomat..."

What "much-admired legacy"? This woman is the biggest hype job I have ever encountered, next to Obama. From the smartest woman in the world to this. She's never done anything. Everything she's put her hand to has ended up being blown to smithereens or botched. Hillarycare, you name it. The way she handled the bimbo eruptions with Clinton. The vast right-wing conspiracy on the Today Show.

And now this?

If she has time to meet with Obama, how come she doesn't have time to go up and answer questions before the congressional committee today? Anyway, there was a damage control meeting, a big meeting of Obama and Hillary, to figure out what lie they're gonna tell later today to explain all this. We have a rogue State Department saying: It wasn't us, and it wasn't a video, and we never said it was a video.

Robert Gibbs, the White House spokesman before the spokeskid Jay Carney... Was there somebody between Gibbs and Carney? Maybe not. Doesn't matter. Gibbs was the first one. Robert Gibbs was saying, well, Susan Rice, the ambassador to the UN, went on all the Sunday shows but she wasn't lying. No. No, no! Susan Rice wasn't lying. She was relying on intelligence briefings.

Now, here's what to bear in mind about that.

The State Department is part of US intelligence community. There's a State Department intelligence division called the Bureau of Intelligence and Research. The BIR. The BIR works closely with the CIA, the Directorate of National Intelligence, and the National Security Council, especially on intelligence matters related directly to US diplomacy. Now, if the State Department is now saying they never put out any info saying the movie caused the attack in Libya...

That's what they're saying -- there wasn't any video; we never said that -- and they're also saying this was not spontaneous. There was no protest here that led to this. State's part of the intelligence community that puts out intelligence briefings. How are we supposed to believe that Susan Rice was relying on intelligence briefings? There wasn't any intel that made this absurd movie claim. That's what the State Department's saying.

The State Department is part of the intelligence community. Robert Gibbs, in an effort to protect Susan Rice -- who's married to a producer at ABC's This Week, by the way, Ian Cameron. (I tell you, that town's incestuous.) So they're out there saying that the State Department, which is part of the intel community, never said there was a video. They never had intel saying there was a video.

So how are we supposed to believe that Susan Rice was relying on intelligence briefings? Gibbs? It's just another lie on top of another lie. These people are amateurs at cover-ups. You know why? Because they've never had to cover up anything! They've had the media willing to do it for them, but the media isn't now. It's interesting. The media is turning on this bunch in a couple places.

The media is fit to be tied over the regime's use of the Big Bird ad. They're embarrassed. And from their standpoint, you kind of have to understand it. You can see why. They've gone out of their way to call Romney a felon. He doesn't care when some guy's wife dies of cancer, that he's not particularly fond of people that have less money than he has. You know, all this stuff. They've done it! They've carried the water every which way, and Obama's not stepping up.

Obama phones it in at the debate, and they have to cover for that by asking, "What went wrong? He's the smartest guy in the world, so what happened?" And they make up all the phony excuses. Now, as a means of trying to reclaim lost ground, they run a Big Bird ad. And to top it off there was a tweet. I thought this was a joke when I saw this yesterday. I ran this down to make sure this actually was said, and it was.

There's a White House or campaign press secretary by the name of, I think, Jennifer "Jen" Psaki. And when the hubbub over the Big Bird ad hit yesterday, you know what she said? (impression) "President Obama is the only candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird and Elmo." In the midst of all of this, in the aftermath of Obama's dismal debate performance and the media turning on them, the Big Bird ad.

It's chump change. It's small stuff. I can't believe this. They're turning on him on that, and they're having problems with this State Department business. Anything they can't save him from is a problem. Anything they can't cover up themselves is a problem. So if they can't do the cover-up then it's left to Obama to do it, and I tell you: These people are a bunch of amateurs, 'cause now they want to say that Susan Rice wasn't lying. She got bad intel.

Well, the State Department, just to walk you through it again, the State Department is part of the intel community.  They get briefed along with all the National Security Council people and all this, CIA.  They have their Bureau of Intelligence and Research.  That's their intel unit, and they're saying publicly there was no intel suggesting the video had rankled emotions in Benghazi.  And they didn't ever say so.  So Gibbs has to be lying when he says that Susan Rice wasn't lying, she had bad intel.  The State Department says, we didn't have any intel like that; we didn't put that intel out.  Gibbs says she got it from the State Department. The State Department doesn't want to lie 'cause they're going up under oath this afternoon before a congressional committee. 

So there was no intel that made this absurd movie claim.  The White House made it up, folks.  The White House made it up and then they gave it out as marching orders to Susan Rice and to Jay Carney who, again, hasn't been seen in a couple weeks.  Hillary Clinton, ran the ad in Pakistan, got the audio from that coming up just to remind you.  There was no intel that made this absurd movie claim.  So Gibbs is lying about that.  The White House made it up.  So, see, Obama had a choice.  Blame the movie or blame the utter failure of his policy in Libya, and he decided to blame the movie because what we have here is an utter failure in Obama foreign policy in Libya.  And you know what it's based in? 

It's based on pure liberalism, based on the phony concepts of liberalism, which states if you make friends with bad guys, the bad guys will love you.  We got rid of Khadafy, Libya hated Khadafy, ergo, Libyans love Obama.  Not the case.  Not everybody in Libya hated Khadafy.  But certainly not everybody in Libya loves Obama.  Probably quite the opposite.  So Obama is assuming, like he assumes here, that everybody loves him and everybody is in awe of him, The One.  So he rolls the dice, the Libyans love him, they won't do anything.

Al-Qaeda behaves as Al-Qaeda will. A snake's a snake. A scorpion's a scorpion, you've heard the story. We have an utter breakdown in foreign policy and Obama can't say, "You know what, my policy was really bad and I blew it, and I'll get better."  No.  Blame it on a American citizen that had nothing to do with it, the maker of an obscure, wacko, amateurish video. Make sure the guy gets arrested. Apologize all over the world for it. And it all unravels because the State Department won't fall on the sword for The One.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Back to the audio sound bites. This is President Obama at the United Nations on September 25th.

OBAMA:  The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.  It's time to heed the words of Gandhi.  Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true Democratic spirit.

RUSH:  The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, carrying on this lie, this cover-up that all of this slander of the prophet of Islam led to the death of our ambassador.  Here's more.

OBAMA:  In 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with a click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete.

RUSH:  It's pathetic.  It's a speech before the United Nations General Assembly.  And it continues this mirage, this myth that a filmmaker is responsible for the death of an ambassador.  This is profoundly embarrassing.  We are surrounded by incompetence, lies.  It's embarrassing.  Here's the ad.  We were attacked on 9/11.  The State Department again, just to reiterate, there was no protest. It did not spontaneously erupt. It was a preplanned terror attack.  We never had any intel that a video had anything to do with this, and yet this nation, the President of the United States, Hillary Clinton, voice a television ad broadcast in the Muslim world in Pakistan, apologizing for the video.

OBAMA:  Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths.  We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.  But there is absolutely no justification of this type of senseless violence.  None.

HILLARY:  Let me state very clearly, and I hope it is obvious, that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video.  We absolutely reject its content and message.  America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.

RUSH:  What, did she think everybody in the audience is five years old or something, the way she's speaking?  Anyway, this is a coordinated lie continuing to be told, planned, and executed by the administration to cover up for an absolutely failure of American foreign policy, failure of Obama foreign policy.  So he brings Hillary in and they discuss how to do this, and they corrupt everybody.  Well, I think this bunch is corrupt before they got there.  Jay Carney, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and any number of other Democrats who join the chorus that it was the video.  Folks, I'm making a big deal out of this because this is a huge deal. 

I can't believe this has happened.  The State Department is throwing Obama under the bus.  There was no video. We didn't say it was a video. We had no intel blaming the video. There was no protest.  The State Department is saying: Everything that the administration has told you, we didn't tell 'em.  They made it up.  We have to assume that. 

Here's Susan Rice, by the way.  She was all over the Sunday shows on September 16th.  This is Meet the Press, David Gregory.  The question: "You talked about this as spontaneous.  Can you say definitively that the attacks on our consulate in Libya that killed Ambassador Stevens and others was spontaneous?  Was it a planned attack?  Was there a terrorist element to it?"

RICE:  What happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video.

RUSH:  Oh, of course.  Of course, prompted by the video.  And Robert Gibbs is saying today that, (paraphrasing) "Well, yeah, she wasn't really lying. She just got bad intel at the State Department."  Again, the State Department, they're part of the intel community.  They've got their own intel division.  They say, "We didn't have such intel."  Folks, they're literally just making this up.  I want you to hear this montage again of all the top level regime figures spreading the lie that's now been exposed. 

OBAMA:  I don't care how offensive this video was, it was terribly offensive and we should shun it.

HILLARY:  This video is disgusting and reprehensible.  It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.

CARNEY:  Let's be clear.  These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region.

OBAMA:  You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character, an extremely offensive video.

CARNEY:  The unrest we've seen has been in reaction to a video.

OBAMA:  A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.

RICE:  It was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video.

OBAMA:  I know there are some who ask, "Why don't we just ban such a video?"  The answer is enshrined in our laws.  Our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech.

RUSH: If they will lie to us this brazenly, this blatantly in the face of contradictory evidence, what else will they lie about?  What else have they been lying about?

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, the State Department intelligence division. They have their own intelligence division. Just like the DIA, Defense Intelligence Agency. The State Department has their own, and you would assume that it reports to the White House like the all the others do. The CIA reports. That's when Obama cares, by the way, about getting a briefing. But his national intelligence director is a guy named Clapper.

So you would assume that the State Department's intelligence agency is reporting to Clapper at the White House. The BIR has to report someplace. It probably is James Clapper who is the Director of National Intelligence. In fact, Clapper and Hillary had a private meeting with congressmen and told them that what happened in Libya was not premeditated. It was spontaneous. It was brought on by the video.

September 20th, 2012, from TheHill.com: "Clinton Fails to Convince Republicans on Administration's Account of Libya Attack -- Republican lawmakers left a closed-door briefing with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other officials on Thursday still unconvinced by the administration's assessment that last week's attack that killed four Americans in Libya wasn't a premeditated act of terrorism. 'They're trying to cover their behinds,' Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas) told The Hill upon leaving the House briefing with Clinton..."

"They're trying to cover their behinds."

Which they were.

They were lying to members of Congress. Now, the hearings are underway. If this were a Republican administration that had done this, these hearings would be on every television network, and there would be a demand to get to the bottom of this. An American ambassador is dead! Now, I don't know what you call it. You can call it a failure of foreign policy or a refusal to acknowledge repeated warnings. I don't care what it's called.

We have glaring incompetence, and the reason for it is political. The reason Obama... I'm sure it was Obama who sent word out to ignore all these terrorist warnings. The reason is 'cause there aren't any terrorists left. He killed Osama! Do not discount this, folks. Do not allow yourselves to not appreciate the importance of this. Killing Osama Bin Laden carried with it the notion that Obama had wiped out Al-Qaeda as well.

We'd cut the head off.

Why, without the head, there's no body!

So the whole notion was that our brave, young president -- the first black president who was supposedly a military pacifist -- look, this guy is tougher than Bush! He's tougher than anybody. When the time came, he took out Osama, and, with it, all of Al-Qaeda. Well, if that's your storyline, then Al-Qaeda can't be responsible for any terrorist activity in the Middle East, in Cairo or in Benghazi. So that's why you lie about it.

That's why you ignore it.

And you roll the dice that they're not gonna do anything, and then you roll the dice that if they do do something, the media will cover for you, because they always do. So you roll the dice, something happens, and an ambassador dies. "Oh, no. Eh, well, we'll blame the video." They sent people out all over television for two weeks blaming the video, and the media dutifully covers this as though the video's responsible.

They follow along while the producer of the video is arrested at 1:30 in the morning, dragged out of his home in California, dragged off to "interrogation" and jail on a parole violation on a bank fraud charge. But everybody knew. And then after that happens, Obama goes and takes a victory lap at the UN and runs an ad in Pakistan: "We're not gonna put up with this kind of blasphemy!

"We're not gonna tolerate the prophet being made fun of even we have a First Amendment. We're gonna put people in jail that do this, and we want the world to see that we'll put people in jail. We want the Muslim world especially to see that we will jail American citizens who make fun of the prophet." Blah, blah, blah, blah. But then the State Department yesterday said none of it was true.

There was no intel citing the video.

There was no protest.

It was not spontaneous. It was preplanned. It was premeditated. It was an Al-Qaeda terror attack. And so now Mrs. Clinton and President Obama are having an emergency meeting in the White House this afternoon to try to imagine up the next phase of the cover-up. Let's keep on with the audio sound bites. Let's go back to September 26th on the Today Show. Ann Curry, who had been fired, was somehow brought back to interview the Libyan president.

She said to the Libyan president, "What is your evidence that it was a preplanned act of terrorism?" See, this guy was out there saying, "It wasn't a video! The video didn't cause this," and the media was outraged. What do you know? You're just the president of Libya! Our president says that it was a video and that it was just a spontaneous protest, and you say it's not? How do you know?

MAGARIEF: Number one, is choosing the date, 11th of September, has all the significance. If we take the facts about the way it was executed, there is enough proof that it is a preplanned act of terrorism.

CURRY: This was a preplanned attack, not a reaction to a controversial movie?

MAGARIEF: Yes. I have no doubt about this.

CURRY: Do you think the movie had anything to do with this attack on the consulate?

MAGARIEF: It has nothing to do with this attack.

RUSH: "It has nothing to do with this attack." This is on September 26th. Ann Curry did her best to carry the water for the regime, but the Libyan president wouldn't play ball. The Libyan president didn't blame it on the video. By the way, the Heritage Foundation on their Foundry page... We ought to link to that. I just told Koko to put the Heritage Foundation Web link up. It is a great timeline.

It's an incriminating timeline of the Obama administration and Libya, and it puts all this in context. And when you see it this way, in a timeline, the folly of this administration trying to blame this on anything other than Al-Qaeda is instantly obvious. So if you have a chance, go to RushLimbaugh.com and find the link to the Heritage Foundry page for this timeline.
