RUSH: So the father of the slain SEAL, "Who made the decision not to save my son?" This kind of thing is what opens the door to all kinds of theories. And you can plug whatever theory in you want to explain this. My only point is that you don't need them. Even though they may be accurate. And I wouldn't doubt any of them with what we're dealing with here, the kind of people, but even at that, whatever the reason, let's take the theory that this was supposed to be an arranged kidnapping. Let's just discuss it. Stevens was in on it, gonna be kidnapped in exchange for the Muslim Brotherhood getting the blind sheik back.
Now, remember, the new Muslim Brotherhood president, Morsi, has said the first things on his agenda when he won that election was getting the blind sheik back. It matters to them. Why does it matter to Obama that this guy be made happy? Why does it matter that he be pleased? That's question number one. Number two, what's the campaign advantage for a faked, staged kidnapping? Forget the campaign advantage. The bottom line is that American interests are subordinated to the preferences of somebody who's genuinely not our friend, the Muslim Brotherhood guy. And that Obama would go along with such a plan. You're gonna have a tough sell on that one, but there will be people who will believe it.
The same thing with the gunrunning story. The way this one works is that Stevens was actually running guns through Turkey for the rebels in Syria, and Assad found out about this. See, Obama couldn't be open about it because Obama's ideology doesn't permit him to do this, but he wants to take Assad out. He's probably being advised that Assad's gotta go for whatever reason so he reluctantly says, "Okay, but I can't do it openly. I can't show preference here. I don't want to offend the Middle East. I don't want to offend Islam or any of that," so they get this under the table gunrunning operation going. The problem is Assad finds out about it, gets word to the militants in Libya who are not too keen on the Muslim Brotherhood, they're not too keen on Obama, and they decide to take out the guy responsible for the gunrunning operation.
In either of these two scenarios, you still have secret operations being planned, orchestrated, and executed by the Obama administration for what purpose? Certainly not America's national interests. Both of these theories are to please others. Then you have what is more likely here, and that is simply the campaign determining that any kind of terror outbreak in the midst of this election, so close to the election, cannot possibly help. So action has to be taken to just pretend that it isn't happening. And if we can't contain that, then we'll come up with a phony reason why it's happening, which will always end up being America's fault somehow.
No matter which of these three you choose to believe, there isn't one of them that makes this regime look any good. For me, I don't need any conspiracy theory. The facts alone here that we know are sufficient. Folks, I have known since January 16th of 2009 that we were headed for trouble. I have known since the campaign of 2008 we were headed for trouble if Obama was ever elected. This is 9/11. We have the facts on the ground. We've got people claiming credit for this. We have the terror organization that's responsible for this claiming credit. We had every bit of evidence we needed to respond to this. We had every bit of intel, every provocation to respond to this. And this is when you double back to the families. The families don't look at this politically, and they don't understand it, and they don't like it. So they're going public with it.
Now, here's the latest on the White House and the three e-mails. This is yesterday's e-mail news. "The White House is declining to say when President Barack Obama first learned of three e-mails that the State Department sent to the White House on Sept. 11, 2012, directly notifying the Executive Office of the President that the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was under attack, that U.S. Amb. Chris Stevens was at the Benghazi mission at the time of the attack, and that the group Ansar al-Sharia had taken credit for the attack."
The White House will not comment on when Obama learned of this.
Remember, Obama goes out and says what he says in the Rose Garden, then jets off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser, doubles back to see Letterman. And then from Letterman he goes to hang out with Jay-Z and Beyonce
