Sen. Rand Paul (KY-R) To Hillary Clinton at Senate Foreign Relations Committee Hearing on Benghazi Terrorist Attack: ‘I Would Have Relieved You Of Your Post’ (VIDEO)

 

Yesterday during the  Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Benghazi, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Paul was one of the few that held nothing back and held Hilary Clinton’s feet to the fire for the responsibility, culpability and accountability for the Benghazi terror attacks. During his statements to Clinton Rand Paul stated, “Had I been president and found you did not read the cables from Benghazi and from Ambassador Stevens, I would have relieved you of your post.”

 
From the HUFPO:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) criticized Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing over the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

“I’m glad that you’re accepting responsibility,” said Paul. “I think ultimately with your leaving that you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11. And I really mean that.”

“Had I been president and found you did not read the cables from Benghazi and from Ambassador Stevens, I would have relieved you of your post. I think it’s inexcusable,” he said, referencing Clinton’s comments that she had not read all of the documentation surrounding the attack.

“I think we can understand you’re not reading every cable,” Paul said. He added that he didn’t suspect Clinton of “bad motives” but said that it was a “failure of leadership.”

      SEN. BOB CORKER (R), TENNESSEE: ….

      CLINTON: … So, yes we now face a spreading jihadist threat. We have driven a lot of the AQ operatives out of the FATA, out of Afghanistan, Pakistan. Killed a lot of them, including of course, bin Laden. BUT WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THIS IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT.

      While acknowleging the spreading jihadist threat Clinton has a way of blaming America … not Islam. It is America’s inability to communicate …It is America’s inability to build relationships. Maybe it is the current administration’s politically correct refusal to respond with strength instead of appeasement … strength that would deter Islamic aggression that puts Americans at risk..

      CLINTON: … We can kill leaders, but until we help establish strong democratic institutions, until we do a better job communicating our values and building relationships, we’re going to be faced with this level of instability.

      What looks to forming up as a ‘Government Mob’
      did little to examine the details and truth of the
      Benghazi criminal culpability on the part of Mrs.
      Clinton and her staff. Unable or unwilling to properly
      respond to calls for help is dereliction of duty at
      the least IMHO. Most of the inquiry was fawning
      over Hillary as opposed to discovering the facts
      in the case.

      Did you notice Paul’s voice after the session? Seemed a full octive highter after Hillary finished with him….. LOL

      Rand has a way of communicating the truth
      simply and effectively. Apparently the truth hurts
      some more than others.

      #4- Public—I am a long time supporter of HRC, and while I appreciate your humor—here is the point:

      AMERICANS WERE LIED TO AGAIN!

      My hometown, born and brought up, is Winchester, Mass. We lost a native from there in the Benghazi incident- and like Hillary said- 4 Americans died!

      Here is where I DO NOT AGREE with her! “What difference did it make?!”

      I tell you the damn difference. It was previous to the election, and timing was CRUCIAL for President Barack Obama. So, again- for several days if not WEEKS after the attacks—THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WAS LIED TO THROUGH THE MSM and THE WHITE HOUSE DIRECTLY!

      It’s a good damn thing HRC is stepping down, because, of course, now AFTER THE FACTS COME OUT- she shoulders and takes all the blame.

      Who does HRC report to? And, yes- she should have been replaced instantly, but WHO IS ACCOUNTABLE AND WHO IS HER BOSS!

      That’s right. Our Commander in Chief. So laugh all you want, Public. When the President of the United States of America cares more about public perception of him and winning another election, rather than the SAFETY of Americans he was sworn in to office to protect—and worse—when the WHITE HOUSE SPOKESPERSON and everyone else on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave immediately puts out LIES to the American public—

      Houston—WE’VE GOT A PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      ‘Nuff said.

      Oh, wait- Sorry just one more thing.

      I’m an American and I do not trust our President Barack Hussien Obama as far as I could throw the guy.

      Sad. But true.

      Hillary Clinton has been a progressive socialist most of her life. These people are all about the destruction of our country and turning it into a dictatorship or a Democracic socialist European style country. Telling a few lies to further their agenda and escaping responsability is what all the delay was about. Protecting Obama’s crazy foreign policy towards the mid-east was the reason for the cover-up.

      Hillary Clinton is a lackey for the Democratic party and will do or say anything required to keep them from being exposed.

      [...] Obama may seem to think that Hillary is the best Secretary of State ever, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky would have had her fired. [...]

      I suggest you wiki Pat Tillman to see what happens when our finest are killed and we want someone held responsible. Of course you could wiki USS LIBERTY and shake your head wondering why we give any support to Israel, while you are at it please list those punished because of Oklahoma City or 9/11

    11. NGBoston on January 29th, 2013 6:28 am

      #10- Public—I am very familiar with the Pat Tillman tragedy and that story bothers me.

      I mean truly bothers me. So what is your point?

      What about President Obama and his minions and the White House Press Corp putting out the story for over 2 weeks that the killings had something to do with a protest and a video that was seen?

      WHAT ABOUT THAT?

      Stick to the facts and explain to me please (aside from the obvious answer that dumb ass Americans once again voted for the most divisive and inexperienced President in Modern US History)–

      explain to me how Barack Hussien Obama got re-elected? Because what—he was the lesser of 2 evils or some BS like that??

      THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WAS REPEATEDLY LIED TO, and by the way- I don’t trust my own Government any more than I would trust a Fox in a hen house, so get over it. I am realistic to understand the Government certainly has it’s share of corruption as well.

      The Tillman story was one of those cases where it actually sickens me.
      ______________________
      SM: Its typical liberal deflection from their playbook on page 7. When ever one of their heroes is called out and exposed for a deceitful liar, they say, but what about this? The fact of the matter is that a liar is a liar. In one case we have a family that was lied to for a govt/military to save face. In another we have an entire US population lied to so a president could win reelection.

      Pat Tillman was a true American hero, Obama is a liar.

      If the terrorists had changed the course of the election as you seem to believe would have happen had the “truth come out” what could we expect in 4 years? Less terrorism?
      I heard the president say terrorist in the rose garden with my own lying ears the next day. My point was not from some playbook , but examples of deaths without responsibility or serious repercussions. NGBoston, I don’t trust fox either…lol

    13. NGBoston on January 29th, 2013 10:15 pm

      #12-public. Wow, that’s all that you got? A lame Fox News joke.

      Like I said, try your best to stick to the facts. As Red pointed out a Liar is exactly that….a Liar.

      Once a Liberal Bleeding heart, always a bleeding heart Moonbat.

      You can continue to bury your head in the sand while at the same time worshipping the Obamassiah.

      I’m all set with his inexperience and Socialist politics. He is literally running our Country straight into the ground. It’s your freedom of choice if you want to go along for the hell ride, many of us here decided to bail and not vote for him in the first place starting over 4 years ago.

      [...] at their most desperate hour. You would dare make such a comment after the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton had Susan Rice go on 5 Sunday morning talk shows and blame the attack on a VIDEO tape. I though [...]
