Limbaugh on Khashoggi: 'Where Was This Concern for Our Ambassador and Three Other Men Brutally Murdered in Benghazi?'

2 hours, 21 minutes ago

Wednesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh compared the situation involving journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was allegedly brutally killed at a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, to that of the tragedy of September 11, 2012 at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Limbaugh noted the reluctance of the media and others to question the handling of the situation by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton versus how President Donald Trump will handle the Saudi government regarding the apparent Khashoggi murder. Partial transcript as follows (courtesy RushLimbaugh.com): Ladies and gentlemen, I have a question. I continue to get emails about the so-called Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. My question is a really rather simple one: Where was this concern for our ambassador and three other men brutally murdered in Benghazi? Somebody explain that to me? You realize how much attention is being paid to what… Has it been confirmed….? Did something happen since this program began? Has it been confirmed that Khashoggi was murdered by the 15 hit men from Saudi Arabia? Has it been confirmed? It’s not confirmed? So it’s still likely or thought to

And I don’t understand the people in this administration taking matters into their own hands and trying to sort of stick it out because they can keep things together. On the foreign policy front, he is cratering our reputation. He is making us an international joke. We are losing our influence.
