On Benghazi…

We know the State Department was watching live video of this. We know the CIA station chief, and we know that the State Department both had sent cables, e-mails, warnings to the White House Situation Room in the first two hours. We learned yesterday that the White House knew what was going on at the moment it was happening. We know that of the four Americans dead, two of them died in the last hours of what was a seven-hour assault. Now we are told that the CIA told these heroes to stand down three different times, to not go in, to not do anything, and Panetta is saying, "We didn't have any intel." That argument's blown out of the water. We did have the intel. We had the video. We knew that there was not a protest that spontaneously erupted into an attack. We knew it was premeditated. We knew who it was. We had the group that claimed credit for it, Ansar al-Omar Sharif, or whatever the name was. They went out and claimed credit for it. The leader of the attack is all over Middle East TV bragging about it.

On the new Benghazi revelations… the White House viewing the terrorist attack on a live drone feed… receiving emails from besieged consulate officials… refusing to take action to save them… and the refusal of the mainstream media to cover the story…

I want to tell you right now, there are only two explanations for this entire sordid affair. One is gross, unbelievable, incalculable incompetence. Two is sheer, bald-faced lying. Those are the only two explanations for what happened here and what didn't happen. Gross, corrupt incompetence or abject lying. What we're watching here today is the equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein helping Nixon cover up Watergate. That is what is happening today with this story. The mainstream media is Woodward and Bernstein. Watergate is Benghazi. Except this time, Woodward and Bernstein are helping Nixon cover it up.

Mark Davis is guest-hosting for Rush... On the motives behind a muscular American foreign policy...


I'm sick to death of "Oh we can't go in and look like we're trying to impose an American solution. We can't look, oh you know heavy-handed. We can't look, you know, colonial." Did we make Iraq the 51st state? Did I miss something? Hasn't that lie been told? Hasn't that myth been exploded? You know we tried to get Afghanistan to apply as a protectorate of the United States... we are not trying to take these countries, we're not trying to take their oil, we're not trying to run their lives. We're trying to level the playing field, we've gotta level a lot of things before we level that playing field, we're trying to literally level the landscape that contains Al Qaeda, the Taliban, or whoever else we're trying to get rid of. We have to actually kill people and break things. It's a war. It's a war. And we have to do that. Our goal is to set up a resulting landscape in which the surviving population – hopefully the vast majority of them – can look around and go, "Wow, now our future is our own. Now we can actually create for ourselves, the country where we can elect our own leaders, draft our own constitution, have our own laws." And hopefully enjoying those freedoms creates populations that are less likely to want to kill us.

On President Obama's approach to problem-solving.


It looks like it's Obama's plan to get the Middle East to love us by giving them more money. Which makes sense because Obama has been spending other peoples' money to buy loyalty, or votes, for his entire political career.
