Here is vintage video of right-wing radio show host Rush Limbaugh getting confused by a liberal caller…
On October 23, 1983, two truck bombs struck separate barracks housing United States and French military forces in Lebanon, killing 299 American and French servicemen. An obscure group calling itself ‘Islamic Jihad’ claimed responsibility for the bombings.
Why does the caller say that Reagan “cut and run?”
Wikipedia: “On February 7, 1984, President Reagan ordered the Marines to begin withdrawing from Lebanon largely because of waning congressional support for the mission after the attacks on the barracks. The withdrawal of the 22d MAU from the BIA was completed 12:37 PM on February 26, 1984. Fighting between the Lebanese Army and Druze militia in the nearby Shouf mountains provided a noisy backdrop to the Marine evacuation. One officer commented: ‘This ceasefire is getting louder.'”
