GOWDY: Do you know why requests for additional security were denied? Do you know why an ambassador asking for more security days and weeks before he was murdered and those requests went unheeded? Do you know the answer to why those requests went unheeded?
RUSH: I’m sure the media listening to this had no idea, and I’m sure the information contained in the questions stymied them. “What do you mean, additional requests for security?” I’m sure they feverishly wondered, “Additional requests for security, who wanted more security?” “Do you know why the ambassador asked for more security days and weeks before he was murdered?” And, of course, yeah, the stock and trade answer is, “What are you asking these questions for? Everything’s been answered here. You heard Mrs. Clinton, what difference does it make now?” This is Clinton’s answer to this, what does all this matter now, what difference it make now, how it all happened and why? “What difference does it make now?” she said. Here’s the next series.
GOWDY: Do you know why no assets were deployed during the siege? And I’ve heard the explanation, which defies logic, frankly, that we couldn’t have gotten there in time. But you know they didn’t know when it was gonna end. So how can you possibly cite that as an excuse? Do you know whether the president called any of our allies and said, “Can you help? We have men under attack.” Can you answer that?
RUSH: Now, Gowdy has all these answers, by the way. He knows the answer to every question he’s asking. What he did here was turn the tables. This is a press conference. This is a Republican press conference. They’re supposed to make a statement, blah, blah, blah, and then open it up for questions. When he got to the mic he decided to ask them questions, basically, “What do you people know? Do you know anything about this? And if you don’t, do you even care?”
