The Washington Post sure wasn’t concerned about what happened to our Ambassador Stevens and the three other men who fought bravely to the death on a rooftop in Benghazi. Reported at the time were that other American individuals were injured and flown to Bagram Air Base in Germany. Forced to sign a non-disclosure as to what happened, silencing them forever. Never questioned. Little is known about those who survived the Benghazi attack.
The State Department confirmed in March, after multiple inquiries by Fox News, that a total of three diplomatic security agents, as well as a State Department contractor, were among the Americans injured during the terrorist assault which killed the two former SEALs, Ambassador Chris Stevens, and Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith.

Now the WP has their knickers in a knot over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi but of course, one of their own. Really? The bio if this fellow Khashoggi given by Rush at the end clip.
Here is a link that Limbaugh mentioned for the Bio on Khashoggi
The fate of Khashoggi has at least provoked global outrage, but it’s for all the wrong reasons. We are told he was a liberal, Saudi progressive voice fighting for freedom and democracy, and a martyr who paid the ultimate price for telling the truth to power. This is not just wrong, but distracts us from understanding what the incident tells us about the internal power dynamics of a kingdom going through an unprecedented period of upheaval. It is also the story of how one man got entangled in a Saudi ruling family that operates like the Mafia. Once you join, it’s for life, and if you try to leave, you become disposable.

Rush Limbaugh had a few choice words on the disparity of the two stories which I will get to in a minute.
But first let’s think about what we have been up to, or what we might know that the CIA or others have done in our name. This from the CIA gov site.

This gives a good overview:
Last let us not forget this one from Hillary Clinton and her handiwork over Benghazi way that gets us back to the point of the post:
But then again, what difference did it make?
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.
Here goes a part of the Rushbo tape that I managed to find. Transcript below.
Listen to it at Breitbart: HERE
So now we are going to blow up our relationship because the Saudi Prince was attempting to westernize? So this Muslim Brotherhood fellow by the name of Khashoggi is a turncoat and anti Westernization? And with this power struggle let’s destabilize the Middle East and our economy. Was he really that dumb to think he could saw the guy up in the consulate and no one would know that video would show the guy went in and didn’t come out? Yes, I know, the Saudis export terrorism. Just like so many other nasty dictators that we deal with. Just maybe he is different. Not a crazy man that we now will attempt to overthrow or kill which is more likely.
Starting to sound a bit like the Shah of Iran that we so easily dispensed with?
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 be… And the story is that it took him seven minutes to die, that they dismembered him alive, at some point gave him drugs to knock him out, and then they listened to music while they did all of this. And of course until I blew up the theory that the Apple Watch contained the evidence, they were gonna try to make it look like proof existed in the form of audio recordings.
Khashoggi knew what was in store for him and he had finagled his Apple Watch to record the stuff somehow on his iPhone. That is very, very unlikely because of it being technologically impossible, barring just only two exceptions. I would have a tough time believing Khashoggi even knew to do or how to do. But all of this concern. And remember Hillary Clinton, when repeated questions were asked about how in the world four Americans were allowed to be murdered in Benghazi, with no assistance, and Hillary Clinton’s reaction?
(paraphrased) “What difference does it make now?” she said in frustration. Does anybody see a disparity here in proportion? Now, of course, we all understand why. The Democrats seriously believe they have a way of blaming Donald Trump for this. CNN all afternoon has tried to make it look like that Trump knows the Saudis did it and is trying to provide them cover. That’s… It’s despicable! The graphics that they are using to try to make that case. But I think there’s a lot proportionality missing here. Again, I don’t think the media realizes how obvious their subterfuge is to people now.
On Tuesday’s program Rush gives the background of Khashoggi that you won’t hear the MSM tell you about. It starts at about 58:00. A Muslim Brotherhood man opposed to the Westernization underway in Saudi Arabia.
We are the good guys. We don’t slice and dice. Bravo.
