RUSH: I was thinking about Tommy Vietor who was on Fox with Bret Baier not long ago and Bret Baier kept asking about Benghazi. (imitating Vietor) “It’s two years ago, dude.” Remember that? Okay, so they arrest this guy, “So what? It was two years ago, dude.” But there’s more to this, folks. I want to read you some quotes from this guy that he gave the media in various reports. His name is Khatallah, by the way. And my point is, when you hear these quotes you’re gonna hear somebody who sounds remarkably aligned with Obama.
You remember during the 2008 and 2012 campaign I kept saying it’s remarkable how much Ahmadinejad sounds like your everyday Democrat today campaigning against Republicans and the country? Well, try this. In the 2012 New York Times article, the Benghazi suspect accused the leaders of the United States of, quote, “playing with the emotions of the American people,” and, quote, “using the consulate attack just to gather votes for their elections.” It sounds just like what Obama said that the Republicans were doing.
And then he said, “Why is the United States always trying to impose its ideology on everybody else? Why is the United States always trying to use force to implement its agendas?” Now, forgive me, folks, but that sounds exactly like the way Democrats look at this country. I’ve been following these people for 25 years, and they refer to us as imposing our will on foreign countries. And the thing is, I’ve never looked at freedom as an imposition, which is what we do. We liberate people. We bring them freedom. And this guy, “Why is the United States always trying to impose its ideology? Why is it always trying to use force to implement its agenda?”
I mean, I can hear Harry Reid. I can hear Tom Daschle. I can hear Tom Foley, any number of Democrats my whole life sounding the same way. And then Khatallah also said, “Contradicting the accounts of many witnesses and the most recent account of the Obama administration, he contended that the attack had grown out of a peaceful protest against a video made in the United States that mocked the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.”
I knew it. I didn’t see this before yesterday when I made this prediction. Actually, it’s not a prediction because turns out he had already said it and had been on record saying it. But I didn’t know that, I swear to you, or I would have said so yesterday. But in 2012 in this interview with the New York Times he contended the attack had grown out of a peaceful protest against a video made in the US. Sounds just like Obama. Sound just like Hillary. But at least now we know why Obama thought it would be safe to capture the guy. ‘Cause this guy’s gonna give the White House version of events. This guy is going to give, via testimony, the Susan Rice version of events. A video made him and his friends mad, and offended them, and that’s why they did it.
