Rand Paul v Hillary Clinton on Benghazi: “I would have relieved you of your post.” (Video)

by Kate on January 23, 2013

Really, there were only 3 notable moments in this morning’s Senate Hearings on Benghazi Senate Lovefest for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. There was John McCain’s very good statement challenging her account – but it feel short of getting a full-bodied answer from Hillary. There was the exchange between Senator Ron Johnson and Hillary in which she almost went nuclear shrill over – clearly he touched a nerve. And then there was THIS – the clean throat punch from Rand Paul in which he says to her:

“So we have a review board. The board has 64 things we can change. A lot of these are common sense and should have been done. But the question is, it’s a failure of leadership that they weren’t done in advance and four lives were lost because of this. I’m glad that you’re accepting responsibility. I think ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability of the worst tragedy since 9/11. And, I really mean that. Had I been president at the time and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not read the cables from Ambassador Stevens, I would have relieved you of your post.

It really was a delicious moment. You can watch the video below.





Thank you Senator Paul. You did our country a great service today.
