Glenn Beck on Wednesday said a Fox News report confirming that the U.S. was running guns from Benghazi to Syria before the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others on September 11, 2012 "must end the hope of any presidency for Hillary Clinton."
"Fox News just confirmed we were right on that," Beck said on his radio program, playing audio of him saying the same thing in the days and weeks after the attack. "If you want to know what's really going on and have a pretty good idea of what's happening today ... you should probably listen to this program. If you want to know what happened three years ago, listen to the regular news. Because now it doesn't matter!"
Beck said former President Bill Clinton taught the nation that if you deny wrongdoing for long enough, as he did with Monica Lewinsky, the American people will have moved on by the time the truth comes out.
"You lie, lie, lie, lie. Drag it out. People get sick of it," Beck summarized. "People don't want anything to do with it and it's over. The most damaging thing we have learned in 50 years, maybe in the history of our country, was that lesson. We did it wrong."
Beck said Benghazi is Watergate and Iran-Contra combined, and "if this country has any chance of getting well," it cannot elect the woman who was secretary of state at the time.
"I said at the time they were doing something illegal. And the president was told, 'Go away, Mr. President, so you are not touchable on this,'" Beck remarked. "Remember how far they distanced him from that? And we said at one point, 'Do you want the president of the United States to look like a guy who had a nap during a fire fight?' It didn't make any sense leading up to the election, unless they were doing something illegal."
"And the president, standing in front of the UN and lecturing the United States of America about a video," Beck added in an agonized tone. "It had nothing to do with the video! They were running guns."
Beck said Hillary Clinton learned from her husband to deny wrongdoing until the people no longer care, but she added an element of indignation to it.
"The fact is we had four dead Americans!" Clinton said at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing. "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans?"
"Or is it because you were running guns to Syrians against the law?" Beck demanded. "Why did they not send somebody in? Why did they let the bad guys break down the gates and steal everything that was in that house, including the ambassador? Because there was evidence of gun running there. So they couldn't go in and save him."
Beck said between Clinton's work as secretary of state and the allegations of corruption at the Clinton Foundation, "if we don't clean up that Clinton mess, it is indeed over and we are ... worse than Mexico."
