RUSH: Not enough intel. The Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, says we didn’t have enough intel. We didn’t have enough intel to go in and help these people out. Let’s see. We had two drones overhead. We had a video feed from the security cameras around the compound. We had a live radio connection, and we had e-mails, and we had all the details in the White House Situation Room within two hours, including a claim of responsibility from the group, Ansar al-Sharia. In fact, we have been told, ladies and gentlemen, the White House State Department, probably up to 400 people were able to watch this attack that took seven hours in real time. Now, what the hell else more would you need before doing something about it?
Let’s talk about the families for a second here. The families of the four. It’s not about politics to them. None of this is about politics to them. It’s about honor, it’s about integrity, and the obvious lack of that in high leadership positions in our government. Now, this family, the Woods family, father of Tyrone Woods, was on a couple of radio shows yesterday, Charles Woods. They weren’t going to come forward. They weren’t going to make a public statement. But when they saw the e-mails that were leaked, when they learned what was known — see, they accepted what was originally told to them by Hillary and Obama, that they’re gonna get the guy who did the video, they’re gonna move heaven and earth to find out who did this. “Don’t worry, we’re gonna find that guy who produced that horrible video.”
When they found out, when the family found out what was known, they decided to accept requests to do interviews in the media, because what the families have rightly concluded — not me, folks, and not you, and not anybody else in the media, what the families of these four have concluded, and you would, too, if you were in their shoes — is that the White House knew, the CIA knew, the Defense Department knew, the State Department knew, and they didn’t do anything. Remember, two of these four died toward the tail end of what was a seven-hour ordeal. Two of these people were ordered to stay away and went anyway and died. And so their families now know that that probably could have been prevented.
When you are a family member of a volunteer in the United States military or the intelligence agencies, do not doubt me when I tell you that they trust that the president of the United States means it and recognizes it, the basic responsibility is to keep Americans safe who are in harm’s way. So they’ve got questions that are erupting all over the place. And thus they’ve made the decision to come out and reveal the lies they were told. Over their son’s coffin they were lied to at that ceremony that we all saw at Andrews Air Force Base. This man, Tyrone Woods, was not in the compound, folks. He was at the CIA annex.
That’s the breaking news from Fox today. He was at the CIA annex. They were told three times, they were denied permission to go offer assistance three times. They were told to stand down three times. The safe house is a mile away from the consulate. They heard the distress call and they went there to help, unlike anybody in the Obama administration, unlike anybody in the Obama campaign, unlike anybody at the regime, they went to help. Everybody else sat around and watched Tyrone Woods get murdered. They didn’t do anything to help, and then they made up bogus reasons. Hillary Clinton lied straight to the father’s face about what caused the death of his son. Joe Biden made crude jokes about their dead son. Did you hear about that?
I’m gonna say exactly what Biden said here, and if some of you are gonna be offended by the discussion of the male anatomy, I’d like for you to listen to something else for just a couple minutes. I’d like you to just tune out, ’cause I don’t want to have to deal with people complaining that they were shocked ’cause we’re not trying to shock you here. Biden went up to this man’s father, and said, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?” Biden thought he was complimenting the man and his son. He walked up to him, Biden sauntered up, not whispering, not speaking respectful, Joe Biden, “Hey, Chuck, stand up, let ’em see you, hey.” “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?” It’s Tyrone Woods’ father. He thought he was being complimentary. The one who disobeyed orders, stand down three times, and went anyway. Two sound bites from the father, Charles Woods, on the radio yesterday in Portland, Oregon. Here is sound bite number one.
WOODS: When he came over to our little area, you know, I could tell he kind of just mumbled, you know, “I’m sorry.” His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. It was like shaking hands with a dead fish, you know. It just didn’t feel right.
RUSH: He’s talking about Obama. But keep in mind, folks, these people were not gonna go public with any of this. They were not gonna go public, the dignified way to do this. But they saw the e-mails. They found out they were being lied to and they found out that assistance could have been offered, could have been on the way and it wasn’t. “The father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the terrorist attack said Obama wouldnÂ’t look him in the eye,” you just heard that, and that “Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his sonÂ’s body returned to America. … Woods said Biden came over to his family and asked in a ‘loud and boisterous’ voice, ‘Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?’ ‘Are these the words of someone who is sorry?’ said Woods.”
Here’s the second sound bite. After he mentions that shaking hands with Obama was like shaking hands with a dead fish, Charles Woods continued.
WOODS: Now it’s coming out that apparently the White House Situation Room was watching our people die. This was happening. This is what Hillary did. She came over and, you know, she did the same thing, you know, separately came over and talked with me. I gave her a hug, shook her hand, and she did not appear to be one bit sincere at all. You know, she mentioned that thing about, “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.”
RUSH: That was supposed to please ’em. That was supposed to mollify them. And, by the way, I should say that this man’s description, Charles Woods’ description of Obama’s lack of concern, matches what we have heard from other parents in similar situations.
