RUSH: Folks, anybody want to bet me that this Benghazi suspect, at some point — they’ve captured the militia leader, leader of the Benghazi attack — anybody want to bet me that sometime this week he will admit that the Internet video is what made him so mad that he rounded up his buddies and began the assault on the consulate? I am just going to tell you, I’m not going to predict that, but I want to go on record here on June the 17th making it very clear that, if that does happen, I, for one, will not be surprised in the least. It would fit perfectly, ’cause — grab sound bite 21. Let me upset the applecart.
Let’s go back and listen to this montage. This is from September 20th through 28th of whenever the Benghazi thing happened, it was after that, and we’ve got a montage here of eight days, not one of these is repeated.
OBAMA: I don’t care how offensive this video was, and 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, who is extremely offensive video.
CARNEY: The unrest we’ve seen has been in reaction to a video.
OBAMA: Is a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage through 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: That’s Obama telling the Star Wars bar scene attendees at the United Nations why we just don’t ban the video. (imitating Obama) “Well, you world leaders may not know it here, but we have a Constitution, damn it, and I can’t just put somebody in jail for what they say, but I’m gonna put this guy in jail for what he did.” And they did put him in. So doesn’t it follow, I mean, with all of that blame on the video, doesn’t this suspect have to say that the video made him do it?
