Limbaugh: Benghazi Terrorist Capture 'Amazingly Timed Coincidence'

Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh discussed the breaking news that Ansar al-Sharia commander Ahmed Abu Khattal who is suspect in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that killed four Americans has been captured by U.S. forces.

Limbaugh said "the news media is going berserk" over the "amazing, timely coincidence" of the terrorist's capture. He added, "It was quite obvious this was a very timely headline given how things are falling apart in Iraq."

Limbaugh also stated he “will not be surprised” if Khattala blamed the YouTube video that the Obama administration claims caused the terrorist attacks back in 2012. Limbaugh played a montage of Obama administration officials blaming the attack on the US consulate on a YouTube video and asked “doesn’t it follow, with all of that blame on the video, doesn’t this suspect have to say the video made him do it?” He cautioned that he wasn’t predicting this will happen, only that it wouldn’t be surprising.

Cruz Calls Out DHS: Unaccompanied Minor Crisis the Result of Amnesty

Wednesday at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) confronted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about the increase of unaccompanied minors illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border by calling it a "direct consequence" of President Barack Obama's executive version of the DREAM Act.

Cruz said “In 2011, there were roughly 7,000 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended, In 2012, that number rose to 14,000. In 2013, it rose to 24,000. And, in 2014, your agency is estimating it is going to be as high as 90,000. In 2015, the administration is estimating that it will rise all the way to 145,000.”

“It’s important to understand what those numbers represent. These numbers represent children, Little boys and little girls, their parents are handing them over not to some noble social worker trying to help them. They are handing them over to international, global criminal cartels that smuggle human beings in. They put kids, among other places, on top of fast-moving freight trains. They are criminals who assault, sexually assault, and sometimes murder these children. These are little girls that are sometimes being sold into prostitution and sex slavery.”

“Mr. Secretary, you testified to this committee the increase is a result of violence in Central America and there is surely violence in Central America, but if you look at the statistics…midway through 2012, was when Administration unilaterally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who had been minors, with the so-called DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] proceeding. And, you can see sometime after that the numbers spike dramatically. Is it really your testimony that granting amnesty to some 800,000 people who came here illegally as children had no effect in causing a dramatic increase of children being handed over to international drug cartels to be smuggled in here illegally?”

Cruz also reported that estimates from the Obama administration suggest that 145,000 unaccompanied minors will be apprehended in 2015. He read a constituent letter sent from Brooks County, TX stating that “in one week of last July, I personally rescued 15 people...that were lost and close to dying from dehydration and heat exhaustion,” and “129 bodies of deceased illegal aliens” were found on private ranches in the county in 2012 alone.
