WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul bluntly told Secretary of State Hilary Clinton Wednesday that he would have fired her over her handling of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya.
In a lengthy attack on a potential 2016 presidential election foe, Paul repeatedly hammered Clinton and the Obama administration.
“One of the things that disappointed me most about the original 9/11 was that no one was fired,” Paul said, calling the 2012 attack the worst act of terrorism since 2001.
Later, Paul pressed Clinton over a conspiracy theory popular amongst conservatives that the late Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was involved in a CIA effort to ship guns to Turkey.
