Rush Limbaugh: Maybe killing bin Laden, Obama bragging led to Benghazi attack

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh suggested on Monday’s show that President Obama may have been the inspiration that led to the terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last fall.

Just one week before the attack, while in full campaign mode at the Democratic National Convention, Obama proclaimed:

“A new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.”

In response to a caller’s question, Limbaugh said,  “Nobody stopped to think that maybe killing bin Laden and running around bragging about it, as Obama did, might stir something up on September 11th somewhere. And it did. It wasn’t a video.”

Limbaugh added that Obama wanted voters to believe “terrorism has been dealt with,” as a result of the death of bin Laden and that’s why he couldn’t admit that Benghazi was a terror attack, according to Mediaite.
