Benghazi Hearing Rand Paul: I Would've Fired You Over Benghazi


Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) grilled Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during today's Benghazi congressional hearing.

"I'm glad you've accepted responsibility for the worst terror attack since September 11," Paul fired.

The libertarian-leaning senator, who's a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, said he thought the September 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi, Libya, where four American diplomats were killed, was a "failure of leadership."

"If I were president at the time I would've relieved you of your post," Paul said.

The attack was initially reported by UN Ambassador Susan Rice as the result of a "spontaneous demonstration." However, intelligence available at the time described the attacks as planned and executed by an al-Qaeda affiliate. 

Do you think Rand Paul is right?
