RUSH: Larry in Kansas City, Missouri. There is no Kansas City, Kansas, that's a myth, I know. Welcome to the program. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. Mega dittos. I've been listening since the early nineties.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.
CALLER: I can't tell you how honored I am to be talking to you.
RUSH: I'm glad you made it through.
CALLER: Well, thank you. I'd like to switch the discussion over to Benghazi just for a second if you don't mind.
RUSH: No, please do. That's outrageous, too, what we learned about that yesterday.
CALLER: Oh, it's gut wrenching. But it is my opinion that Hillary wasn't falling on her sword when she invoked the phrase "the buck stops here." What I believe is that she was actually standing up with all the dignity she could muster and taping a sign on Barack Obama's back that said "the buck really stops with this guy."
RUSH: Why? She didn't say that, so why are you interpreting that?
CALLER: Well, she did say that the buck stopped on Benghazi, the buck stops with her, and it was the very next debate that Barack Obama was forced to say that he takes full responsibility for Benghazi, because I think everybody knows that when you say the buck stops somewhere, it's supposed to stop with the president.
CALLER: And I really believe, honestly, that that whole phraseology comes from Bill Clinton, because I think that was his way to get back at Barack Obama for pulling the race card on him.
RUSH: Well, I would love nothing more than for that to be true, but we have to admit now, that's a stretch.
CALLER: Well, it may be, but I do think that what she was doing by accepting responsibility was, when they were looking for responsibility, she stood up and took one step backwards.
RUSH: Well, I think what's going on, I think the Clintons are consulting with lawyers, 'cause this is going to get investigated after the election. All the rocks are gonna be turned over on this. There's gonna be hell to pay for this. Folks, just what we know now, there's gonna be a price to be paid, and I think Bill and Hillary got together with some lawyers and they sent her out there. She did not take responsibility for what happened. She said that she accepts that the security of the consulate and the embassies is her responsibility. People said, "Okay, so she's falling on the sword for Barry." But she did not specifically take responsibility for allowing the attack to happen. She did not specifically say that.
Now, what we have learned, Catherine Herridge is the latest reporter at Fox, it was Jennifer Griffin on Friday, Catherine Herridge yesterday, she found a cable from the ambassador himself, Chris Stevens, from August. The cable went to Obama. It went to everybody. It went to State, went to everybody. They all saw it. The cable said that Al-Qaeda was amassing. Al-Qaeda, which Obama said today in Green Bay again, (imitating Obama) "Al-Qaeda is in retreat." I forget what his term is. "Al-Qaeda is on the run and Osama Bin Laden is dead." Well, in August there's a cable from our ambassador: Al-Qaeda is amassing, and they are preparing for an attack, and he requested security. He got nothing.
There wasn't one request for security that was honored at any time. A month before, a day before, and the seven hours of the attack, there was not one request that was honored for help during the attack, security beforehand, not one was honored, even though it was known that it was Al-Qaeda planning an attack and that it was Al-Qaeda that carried out the attack. Everybody knew and still maintained it was the video.
