Senator Rand Paul: If I Were President, Hillary Clinton Would Have Been Dismissed for Worst Tragedy Since 9/11

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky was perfectly clear about what he would do if he were commander-in-chief during the Benghazi scandal: relieve Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of her cabinet position.
Paul said that Hillary Clinton’s disregard of the requests for more security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya constituted “a failure of leadership” and was “inexcusable.”
“I think ultimately…yo
“Had I been president at the time and I had found that you had not read the cables from Benghazi, you had not read the cables from Ambassador Stevens,” he went on, “I would have relieved you of your post.”
As The Daily Caller pointed out, Paul accused Clinton of being directly responsible for the loss of lives in the September 11, 2012 attacks.
“Not to know of the requests for security really, I think, cost these people their lives,” he said.
“I don’t suspect you of bad motives,” he said, but added that “it’s a failure of leadership not to be involved. It’s a failure of leadership not to know these things.”
Rumors still abound that Rand Paul is angling for a presidential bid in the near future. The ability to hold people accountable for their actions is a quality that is sorely lacking in the current executive leadership.
