This is the rust castle show Howard and charge my batteries specialists. That -- good morning to you folks five and a half past 10 o'clock. Couple of hours away from Rush Limbaugh and we'll try to get you there. In the meantime you know I've got a lot of stuff to talk about today. And movement despite this dagger stuff that I have again one I'm most interest today and is whatever's on your mind what Amber's going through your mind right now. Maybe it's something you just realized maybe it's something. You've been trying to get off your chest for a long long time whatever that may be. You're more than welcome to -- -- miss it if you're willing to talk on the air about it. And you know what you believe and why you. Leave it -- use one of our -- advantage talk on numbers. Rebuild 2329673. Spartanburg 5749673. Another way to look at that 232 WORD in Greenbelt. 574. WORD. In Spartanburg. And then if you'd rather text we've got the WORD. Tax line number that one is seven. 1307. Yesterday. At this time. I shared with -- the entire. Piece that aired Sunday night on sixty minutes. About been Gaza. Does this is this issue much. For the first time we about western witness coming forward. You know explaining. In great detail what. What happened there. And he was using an assumed name Morgan Jones. Speaking with Lara Logan. And I just can't tell you how many people. Responded which show him. I for one really appreciate you know sometimes as a talk show host. You have to make that decision you have to say okay is it time to move all. It was question -- again yesterday. Because this thing's been going on for fourteen months now. And just now we have people coming forward. In the question that's been coming in and consistently. Since we did this yesterday from blisters this program is. Ross how can how can we force. Our elected representatives. To do something about this. I wish I had an easy answer and it. Mice my first thought is. You have to call yet to be vocal. Not just calling them to -- lead vocal on a program like -- compassionate about in many of you worry yesterday I appreciate that. I didn't know how long people would wanna talk about it dominated. The last two hours of her program. And when when people do. And when they're not distracted. It really does go a long way. In creating I guess what we call in the business a boss. That's what happened yesterday. All of a sudden. It's not that Ben Ghazi. All of a sudden is -- gone never going to be solved nothing will ever happen about this. You have even the liberals. Asking questions now nobody really represents that better well. Maybe Bill Maher but -- Some of those people on MS and speak but would you think about that you think of Chris Matthews. I want you to hear what Chris Matthews had to say after the sixty minutes report. Well I thought we could hear what Chris Matthews with -- have display. This computer I had to just so you'll know I had all kinds of audience set up. -- and its going through its recycling now. Because I was gonna play for you now only some pieces that you did not hear. On the sixty minutes -- I mean there's no question it was al-Qaeda or let me try this again Chris Matthews on bin Ghazi. Where were the people that -- come. We're back Republicans don't need much or reason -- bring up -- guys see which is my concerns are buzzing after a story airing last night on CBS's sixty minutes why did intending any new bombshells that didn't raise a very real important questions for an attack that lasted more than seven hours why didn't reinforcements arrive in time. And that's sixty minutes -- reporter Laura Logan interviewed Gregory hicks the number two diplomat Libya who is based in nearby Tripoli. And this is -- recalling the moment he rise -- health. Wasn't on its way. -- and the county -- and potentially. Yeah I can block. Ministry assets -- on their -- and he and effectively and they're not. And I think for a moment. I just -- lost. Just couldn't believe the answer. And then amid calls a did -- but told him listen you've gotta tell those guys community help coming. Brandon Webb is a former US navy seal and author of -- -- did definitive report. And Jay Newton small reporter with time magazine. Let me go to -- first I guess this is the question that gets to me if you're out -- pinned down -- -- word gets back to Washington and real time at the secure national security. The agency credit NASA security desk why didn't we try to send somebody from somewhere what. Happen. I Chris I think -- people need to understand is that is the situation where the as much as the people on the ground working with the State Department in Libya and knew that the that the threat was the was there and and it -- the security of the State Department just wasn't prepared to deal with this situation and and by being prepared you have. Well a list of things that when something goes wrong like this he go down that list -- you make certain phone calls and notify certain people. I mean not just. Wasn't the case they had numbers for a of from the DOD that had expired. And it then you run into a situation where these agencies that the -- the State Department in the military don't necessarily talk to each other and -- You know as an American Ned doesn't work for me the presidency at best security agency -- were sitting in the White House when he pours seven there's officers on deck. They're getting an instantaneous report on what's happening there. Why what were they looking at in terms of assets they could is that whereas the US cabaret and he is an American image where -- at a table that could have come or try to get there within how many hours of talk to save the lives of the people still living. Where were they and why weren't they called to do it as I'm gonna ask a question I get an answer. Tonight I I agree I mean there's there's some blame on the secretary of defense. So even Chris Matthews. -- word today. I'm gonna aspect question. Until I get an answer. This thing is not dying it is not going the way. You know I pledge I will I will never forget been -- I think it's more important now. Than ever. And I and I got to tell you fox. We the American people we have to make sure that those folks in congress know we are not distract it. I mean everybody's obsessed with obamacare. The new revelations last night my goodness talking about Chris Matthews. -- -- saying you know I'm I'm gonna keep asking these questions. BC and Brian Williams. Great reporting by Lisa Myers last night. Made it -- incredible accusation. Let me read the first paragraph from the reports President Obama repeatedly. Assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law. People who like their health insurance would be able to keep it. However. Millions of Americans are getting or are about against. Cancellation letters for their health insurance under obamacare say experts and the Obama administration this is the -- Has known this for at least three years four sources. Deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC news that fifty to 75%. Of the fourteen million consumers who buy their insurance individually. Can expect to receive -- cancellation -- letter or the equivalent over the next year. Because their existing policies don't meet the standards mandated. By obamacare one expert predicts. That number could reach as high as 80%. And all say that many of those forced to buy -- your new policies. Will experience quote quote. Sticker shock. So that's bad enough. But in -- in some strange I think we talked obamacare to death. There's some of us who knew what this was from day one. -- that's being confirmed out. Even NBC news. It's jumping on this word -- event. And then CBS -- sixty minutes. Out of the blue. Our report that Logan says they've been working on for over a year and she's on the record this morning saying Lara Logan. If there was all kind of pressure on them not to error what they did on sixty minutes Sunday night but my goodness CBS is there now. On Ben Ghazi NBC. Revealing the truth. About obamacare but Obama does know about it he's known about it for at least three years this was a conference day one. But despite all of them and that -- the IRS where's the investigation and that we talked about yesterday in SA. Spot and it seems like on anybody and everybody. Including Merkel and other foreign leaders so all of these. Issues. Not going away. But I don't all those issues I think Ben -- to me personally. Is the most devastating and the most important. So I wonder what the lives are thinking now when even Chris Matthews said you know want. All of these excuses don't work for me. Where were the people that could've helped why it why weren't they sent I'm gonna keep their quote Chris Matthews which are never in my wife thought I would do. I'm gonna keep asking those questions until I get an answer. Even Matthews knows. And you Obama supporters you know what to. The truth will -- for. That's what we try to get out here. So let's take some calls here Helen in Greenville so you still fired up about Ben Ghazi Helen. You better believe I am. But what I don't understand Albert Benoit put to work -- couldn't nobody in my they have asked the president. Do. Do you have an attempt to duplicate or with. All it will try to you know -- -- -- you know they can't go around it and -- -- -- -- give you a question. Right and then not do ignored the people have been attacked armed at all. There are grow a bit -- Keep quite important -- that nobody does. You have accused who's. You know it no matter what comes down. Well Obama didn't know about that he didn't know that we were. Despite on Burkle he didn't know he didn't know about this obamacare thing before it was ruled out yet right. Yeah right and accorsi hadn't -- anything about Ben Ghazi. He couldn't donate anything about that he's the president he's got he's got important things to do he's got to go out there and campaign he's got to go out there and play more golf. You know that's that's kind of the Meredith here. But you and I -- know that that's a crock and and now when you really do have CBS. Or NBC. Where's ABC I mean all of this. Where you actually order a more than anyone young are. -- -- I need that apparently was still -- kept open -- -- to talk import policy intern snowball that's the truth. So no final question why do you. Need to make -- profiles often. -- don't -- them all and end of the logical question Helen is this. Mr. President why would you make it up why would you lie now why would you and Hillary stand there in front of the coffins. Having Hillary. -- was almost in tears over -- -- talked about how she worked with him she -- standing there in front of the -- still talking about the video. Right so I don't know why would you make us. All want the rapper oh no no no but 400 pound ammonia in it. But I don't. Urgent and important I'll -- it. Probably a lot about it but you don't. I mean especially that -- have played yesterday from the sixty ministries -- you've got. Eight lieutenant colonel Andy wood who was the green beret commander. What are the top American security officials in Libya. Based in Tripoli. Who talked about how he met with Stevens every day in the last time he went to bing Ghazi was in June before the September attack. Danny said believes there are kind of tried to assassinate the British ambassador. And he says to him. It came as no surprise because al-Qaeda was doing what they have promised to do to attack the Red Cross to attack the British and then to attack the Americans in -- dossier. I mean that and then in in some of these excerpts that they have to edit out for time constraints. You've got this Morgan Jones saying well listen what I was there because I've I was you know in charge of security. There was an IED attack. Last summer right before the attack where they they actually blew out part of the wall of the front gate of the -- whatever was consulate. -- and -- you know like I'm -- -- aren't all -- currency edged and that entrapment well. They also talked about how one of the security officials that we have hired in Libya. Was -- Throwing a grand need over the war all of the consulate. -- and end what they talked to him and they told not to do it again he was right back on the tail. Supposedly for security. For all the good work there. He is out there I just don't know why would volley which he talked about and it's not -- -- eat a report that -- Well I wonder. Do you do you honestly think Obama. Will ever have to have faced the music on big Ghazi. And when when would that happen held. I don't doubt it but it ain't so it is the only way they would back out or -- -- -- so I'm not trying to thank you don't match. People that might student quite wonder I wonder Chris Matthews would ask him that question. -- wish he would. Missy you are while -- -- -- added you know they were wrong concede -- acknowledge you know the. -- the -- were even Chris Matthews won't deny. I I I think that says a lot. Addiction. Right Helen thank you so much we talked a glint in Greenville high -- Okay go -- and frustrated like I'm doing okay. I'm glad to hear that are glad to hear that some armed armed there's been -- thing. I would just unloaded not a need to hear all they got that arm. Those sixty minutes spaceship. Actions you are every play right. But dirty -- -- military will say one thing. Homeowner or. Yeah -- there are DOT states. Department of the most aren't all they have contingency plan is constantly updated. Our goal number contact points constantly updated. I mean that's that's just a bunch all watch -- if I'm out. There are part of a bit machine. And they're trying to say that they didn't have contact numbers and there's certainly other. I had I -- that for a minute. Yeah I'm I'm and it anybody that would -- that Clint has just got to be dumber than dumb. Well we are talking about Tito and it's all old information -- that make up the majority of today's population. -- with our American Idol then. All what's going on in this country. Did they are but the astonishing thing now is sixty minutes and thank you -- I appreciate debt. John Hendrick her -- wrote about this and power -- blog. Here's part of what he says sixty them the minutes is normally a reliable Democratic Party news out. But Sunday they turned their back on their friends in the Obama administration. When they scathing report on the big Ghazi scandal CBS says the report. Was -- than a year in the making. He says it's too bad some of this couldn't come up before between twelve election still better late than never. He like I said yesterday didn't watch. Sixty minutes on Sunday. But there are many people out there who did and the buzz is all over the place. In Gaza he says is a real scandal. People have been lied to -- any shared what sixty minutes posted. You know they're at their tweets. While the program was on Sunday night here's what sixty minutes was tweeting. Contrary to early White House statements -- Ghazi was a plan to sophisticated attack by al-Qaeda. By the barely protected American compound here's another one. Security offers -- Morgan Jones says hours before the attack Stephens told him he was worried about security at the compound here's another. A security official says the attack in but Ghazi was no surprise. Because al-Qaeda had posted their plots against the British and US online here's another. CIA quick reaction force ignored orders to wait. Went into the compound and -- sixty terrorists. And save five Americans here's another. Quote you're gonna get attacked and -- Gaza is security official says he told Stevens three months. Before the assault. One more prior to the attacks -- approved a table to DC that said quote. The al-Qaeda flag has been spotted flying over government buildings. -- that for sixty minutes. So world -- I can honestly tell you folks that I know. I don't -- I hope it goes. Your comments more than welcome to 1045 you're listening to WORD. 1063. News talk in sports this is -- Russ castle show. Our bad charts by three specialists -- mama gotta squeeze boxing -- -- council probably try to figure out what attacks that two minute -- 1034. 46 away from eleven good to have you -- -- advantage talk lines. Rebuilt 2329673. Spartanburg. 57496734. And is in -- Hi friends. Good morning rest -- -- acting can't we're missing the point here read this is an off election year. Without any Specter of obamacare and you know -- it's a perfect time to split decision in. It is better to wait for next year Art Carney can say hey we've heard discussed at this certain being talked to that you know that. We've already resolved all those relationships. At the and that's why this Christmas either complicit with this whole. They. John Edwards -- where we were if we were let's say a year from now a few weeks away from the mid term election they wouldn't dare bring this up. Couric so this is a way to placate their conscience or something now if that's what. Take a plot to get it away into the doldrums you know a little bit and I'm awake and joke and joke Obama or somebody comes clean which. Or they're not gonna do unless congress. Really forces this issue. Well I but they haven't hearings go along and see how much we've heard about it until the curtain. You know where Hillary Hillary -- you know what difference does that make funeral I hope that -- that -- heroes for president. -- -- win already under -- she was heckled you know a guy still -- and you let them die. I didn't -- it -- I I I I can only speak for myself. Taught to my car dash in Europe London did it but did this isn't getting to the people that are gonna vote there. Cory Booker is next president you know an -- -- that and all -- democratic system emerged. Maybe I'm just stupid. Job but I -- I you're all these other talk shows they're pretty much follow the formula. And they're going to be talking about a lot about obamacare not that it shouldn't be talked about. But when when sixty minutes or Chris Matthews jumps on -- even before they jumped on board I'm not -- have been -- ago. And and -- until we get some. Indication. And I hope people like -- gallery or Duncan from our area will lead the charge. And put the pressure on Boehner to appoint a special prosecutor no excuse for that there why -- these two. Leave the way. Trade -- that can help -- former prosecutor right here in the upstate issued subpoenas. -- I just talked about subpoena he doesn't present the right word subpoena you in effect at the the the records for the health care dot gov web site. Well why you're working oppose. Subpoenas. Congressman -- -- Include some for. Hillary Clinton. -- four slowest learner. For the survivors of the gusts. Regularly go. I -- yesterday I mean this if I have to turn off the entire audience I'm not gonna let Cisco. -- I think it's that important. But -- to give me the feedback if I'm boring you with the issue -- to give me the feedback. Or you can join me and saying we will not let this go. Right to computer all of a sudden is working again some of the things you did not hear. From the -- sixty minutes interview. Including. A question and answer session with a guy named Tom Jocelyn. He is one of this country's leading experts. When it comes to al-Qaeda. Who's responsible for Ben Ghazi who carry out that attack I would say probably to find its al-Qaeda. And that's whether it was ordered from al-Qaeda senior leadership or was decision meet in a decentralized fashion from al-Qaeda leadership in North Africa either way it's al-Qaeda. And when you look at all the actors involved can we pull prism and Ozzie came all the different -- come together on that night -- go to terrorist act they all have one thing income. Every threat leads back to a known al-Qaeda operative are known -- Qaeda organization every single one of. We knew and we knew it was a terrorist attack. We knew from the get go that it was a terrorist attack. There's -- there's just no doubt about it so. Folks I mean yeah. Why. Would Obama. And Susan writes all those folks why would they go out there and make up that story. About the video. Question these to be answered why would they do that. Because they're they're they're covering up something. Right. It didn't take. Much intelligence to have to figure that out. And then Morgan Jones. The security -- first got to come forward. Talking about two Lara Logan sixty minutes Marie Jones not his real name. But he's talking about two separate security breaches at the US compound in bin Ghazi. That occurred before. September 11 2012. One involving an IED. Led Morgan Jones to believe. That the compound was being watched hears that. -- -- At the continent. Before the attack on September 11 you can't tell -- about that. Yes it was those -- -- two incidents. One happened the day after I got. Paper slips. One of the guards who previously worked. Commission. True grenade over the wall at that -- plane was never at rest -- -- touched. He was arrested but not around. Even though he was caught doing it. The police say anger and there was another spiritual -- there but it wounds. I think around June time somebody put an idea against the the front. Of the mission wall near the gates. The gospel -- it immediately. Smoltz. Something funny. The smoke rubbery smell it blew up and down into a large section of the -- that. And apparently a -- could not overcome. Trust in original. -- -- that. Which you don't see much of what maybe he -- out. Which means god is great community here when someone puts and I will be at your front gate composed -- -- -- wall. What does that tell you about. The end of. You know he probably knew that for golf went out. You because he is he would have known he needs to be a good chance of being shot. -- Probably been watching this for all. Isn't it into an amazing. He talks about going back folks tumble last April. Arms or. April 2012. April 2012. You got one of the employees. When a grenade over the what was arrested. Just come back to work the next day no problem. But the Libyans we hired for quote quote security at what different just blows. In Ben Ghazi Libya and didn't another part. Was was at the beginning of December 2012. Months before what happened on September 11. And you hear him talk about. They put two and I EG an improvised explosive device. They put it right there near the front gate and of course this is radio you can see of the sixty minutes -- -- shot. Where they cut away and they show that wall that was blown apart. This is an IED. -- months before. What they were doing. And Lara Logan asked questions so when they put nine. What does that tell you what that they've been watching you they're testing you they know the guards are armed. They know the guards even if they were armed or not gonna do anything. It all of this now. Is coming to -- To dump their for a while but it really come into like a sixty minutes is government. Those are two excerpts. That were aired on Sunday night. So. Folks I can honestly it's even worse. And I thought -- books I thought it was pretty obvious. But here you have testimony from people who Revere -- importance of this Morgan Jones guy he was there he was a security expert. And he's telling the story about what really went down in Ben Ghazi. In the relevant questions. Still out there today who gave the stand out more. Even Chris Matthews why weren't. At least some people who were available where were worth it why weren't they sent. Don't have friendlies. Stephens and and Smith and authority and -- don't they really deserve an answer. As Americans folks of south Carolinians. Yes they deserve an answer that's what we should be saying yes. Can you imagine the agony that these families are still going through. They were promised. They're moms have gone on TV instead yeah. Barack Obama Hillary Clinton promised us that we would get if they still don't have answers. And why. We knew it was al-Qaeda they had telegraphed what they were gonna do everybody else was gone except us why. They blew a hole in the front gate. We knew there was no who. Security there. Got Libyan throwing grenades over the wall. Meanwhile back at the White House. What are they doing. What's Panetta doing. At the department of defense and what the hell was Hillary Clinton do. Q so close to Stephens. She said standing there in front of his coffin. What she's doing. This woman wants to be president of the United States of America -- kidney. Now Rachel it's it's beyond an outrageous trees and I'll say it. It's treason. These soldiers and their families betrayed. We we we can not let this go sorry. I said my piece. You're welcome to share yours. 2329673. In Greenville Spartanburg 5749673. WO -- detects one number. It's 71 threes -- seven quick break. 1045. RA 1049. -- in Greenville -- Well I'm very. Well that's very very disturbed about you've been guiding principle that there -- no one has been -- to any real. Well accounting. But I would really concerns me is what is. Occurred here in America the rising numbers of well Muslims and Muslim influence and here in America. What will happen when they begin to. Strike and they have spit and -- have to have acted out -- are so low power our. Law enforcement agencies have been to respond. Notice how they've been given -- take the yet to Boston marathons these guys seen on tape. And don't buy and I'm sure there weren't these guys to walk around backpack and -- didn't -- one Derek even -- them in the beginning up their efforts because why. Well they might get arrested or civil rights violation yeah. -- haven't sacked by this I really -- Why is it is. I lives as I've said. Through the Watergate scandal and I remember watching them on TV and thinking it really. Could you be you can't get any worse than this and now I feel silly I feel silly. When you can mix should never contrived -- was not part of a quality this man rock. Exciting Obama this part of a -- presentation and a -- it's giving you can't talk obedience to. It's always Hillary Clinton. And so was Leon Panetta. You don't like I they're zero bureau picked up. I believe a lot of our politicians and I -- most McKinnon and we human -- man. Oh by the way McCain said yesterday. -- to the effect. You know other than their spin gutsy thing. Hillary Clinton is great. You know McCain likes Hillary Clinton. Well I you know what's behind that I believe I noticed most when. Well -- money. -- could very well -- Thank you -- let's see what Allan has to say hi. Regarding breast cancer. I don't remember premier medical I did about a month month month and a half ago. I did speak to you about -- Grassley. Ever think maybe he. Maybe. That the troops who -- come out of this but I ordered. I remind you what I told you know it was a body inside government friend that told me -- I'm not gonna do what government. But he told me that they have -- been has -- happened. Below down I think remember it very -- Jude been at one investment he said it wasn't all that important but the ambassador award as a gay person. And he had been sent to a Muslim country which is almost death for certain anyway. But. -- that ambassador Stevens had been a while waiting for quite awhile. While he was there to let -- be transported. Rule will be here. To see -- reader and -- Turkey and Syria. Threat to world. At a strip the whole thing and eventually he had refused to allow that to happen anymore. And because he has switched his mind and then. -- was objecting to letting their items go through -- -- To Turkey and Syria. That. The Obama administration. Left him out by himself -- knowing what was coming. No well he told me either Hillary Clinton. People don't have to believe that produced Tony what an insider told Graham and I just have to be. I know several insiders were right I don't. It just happened in my life some. I still respect rights act again attempt approached her identity as I understand. He basically told me at one time that I would be risking your slice but. He told me that Hillary Clinton had sent him. The ambassador back to Libya. On purpose at that time. He or she knew he was going to be -- Our -- got to leave it there -- 1054. Now.
