Earlier today on his radio show Rush Limbaugh theorized that Iran might have been tipped off by Democrats that the US was going to bomb them.
Now, folks, I’m gonna acknowledge that I’ve heard this. I don’t know if there’s any truth to it at all. And I have not seen it on what I consider a trustworthy website, source. But it’s the kind of thing that has happened before, so you don’t immediately discount it.
Remember last week when Trump announced that we were not gonna take military action, retaliatory action against the Iranians shooting down our drone, and the president said that he asked his military experts how many people would die in the operation. The president said they told him about 150. And the president said (paraphrasing , “They shoot down an unmanned drone, if we retaliate and 150 innocent people die, that’s not proportionate so we’re not gonna do it.”
Now, the stories that surfaced were that there were people in the White House meeting and there were some Democrats in the meeting, committee chairmen, who immediately made phone calls to Iran with the location of the attack, and that the Iranians then moved a hundred to 150 men, women, and children who are afraid of climate change into that location.
In other words, they weren’t there. So the bottom line is that there were people who sabotaged the operation by calling the Iranians and leaking the location so they could then move kids and women into it.
Now, as I say, there’s no proof for it, but that kind of thing is happening. The Democrats have a long history of aligning with American enemies. They did it with the Soviet Union when Reagan was president. They did it almost weekly when we had an ongoing dispute with the Soviet Union over the disposition of the state of Nicaragua and the Contras. They were undermining Reagan policy in Nicaragua openly.
They were sending Democrats down there and advising the Soviet client state leader Daniel Ortega what to do, what not to do, what to say, what not to say. He would say wrong things and they would send other Democrats down there to chastise him. George Miller from California was one of the big liaisons. Jim Jones of Oklahoma was another.
The Democrats have a history of this. They have a history of undermining Republican administrations with this kind of thing, even though there’s no proof for this. But it’s one of those things that you hear, you just don’t immediately discount it. You remain open to further proof coming in for it because it’s sadly not something that has not happened before. It has.
RUSH: Back in 1987 Pat Leahy, Vermont senator — Pat “Leaky” Leahy — tipped off Moammar Khadafy of an upcoming operation to destabilize his regime by the Reagan administration. Democrats have a track record of attempting to undermine Republican administration military operations.
Just to close the loop on this, I had a piece here in the Washington Times. It was a column back on April 7, 2010, by Hans A. von Spakovsky. Sounds like a Bond villain, but he’s not. He’s an academic. He’s an intellectual writing there at the Heritage Foundation, Hans A. von Spakovsky.
And here’s the upshot of it. “In July 1987, The Washington Times reported that Mr. Leahy had disclosed secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration to topple Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy. Federal intelligence officials told the paper that Mr. Leahy had communicated a written threat to expose the operation directly to CIA Director William Casey. Then, just weeks later – surprise, surprise – news of the secret plan turned up in The Washington Post, causing it to be aborted.”
Now, this is what got Mr. Leahy the nickname “Leaky,” Senator Depends. This was an attempt to undermine the Reagan administration’s military operation against Khadafy. This is after, if you recall, what was that, Pan Am flight whatever it was that was blown up over Lockerbie – (interruption) Pan Am 103. It blew up over Scotland. We found out who did it. It was agents of Khadafy. And the first attempt to retaliate Leahy found out about and blew it, blew it up on purpose.
So when you see things like Democrats made a phone call, somebody made a phone call to the Iranians, enabling them to move civilians into the target area, you don’t immediately discount it. It’s not something new.
As I say, during the Reagan administration, there were repeated efforts by Democrats, Senator Kennedy, practically the entire Democrat House caucus trying to undermine Reagan with the Soviet Union directly and with one of its client states in Nicaragua.
Although Rush says he has no evidence this is certainly something that must be looked into. The Democrats have proven they will stop at nothing to the President and former Obama Administration members have been caught talking to the Iranian regime behind the back of the Trump Administration.
