Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said on Friday that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi is reason enough on own for Barack Obama to lose the election.
Whatever happens on Tuesday next week, an investigation into what took place during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate should result in heads rolling, he added.
Limbaugh, addressing his listeners ahead of the final weekend of the
presidential campaign, spoke at length about Benghazi, pointing out
that mainstream media are starting to mention the attack.
“This continuing, enraging story about Benghazi — that alone is reason
enough to fire Barack Obama,” Limbaugh said. “Those of you in this
country who are military families, you have served, you have worn the
uniform, you have family members who have worn the uniform, if I were
you, I would be outraged. I would be unable to contain myself.
"I'm already that way. It is stunning what we are continuing to learn. And
it is dribbling out.
“David Ignatius is now writing columns about it in the Washington
Post,” he continued. “Tom Brokaw even talked about it today on the
Today Show this morning. It is dribbling out. And whatever happens on
Election Day, this is gonna be investigated. This is gonna cause heads
to roll. This is inexplicable. What is happening —what did happen — is
inexcusable. The White House has been lying. The State Department has
even been lying a couple of places.”
Limbaugh said the White House insisted for days that a YouTube video
of an anti-Islamic film was responsible for the attack and pointed out
that reporting by Fox News shows that "cables from the consulate
itself made clear that they expected an attack from local militia
groups in the hours before the terrorist attack” and that Ambassador
Chris Stevens personally sent cables in August warning the White House
that Al-Qaida was rehearsing for an attack.
Stevens, Limbaugh said, “feared an attack. He wanted security. He
wanted defense structure.”
Hours before the attack, cables were sent by the consulate indicating that it expected trouble and could not trust local security, Limbaugh said.
“Before this is all said and done, it's gonna leak,” Limbaugh said. “The trail is gonna go right back to the Oval Office and the Situation Room and the president and whoever was in there with him. I don't know; it's a crying shame what is happening.
“This is far more than Watergate," Limbaugh added.
Responding to a question from a caller, Limbaugh continued to tear into the Obama administration.
“They were told not to offer any defense of the consulate or the ambassador or any of the people there, he said. “To say that they were ‘told to stand down’ doesn't cut it. They were ordered to do nothing! They were ordered not to help! They were ordered not to offer a defense. And as we know now, Tyrone Woods violated orders and went anyway because that's the nature of these people.”
“We were strategically, purposefully lied to from the highest levels of the regime,” he said.
