Paul: Benghazi should ‘forever preclude’ Hillary from presidency

The Hill | Elliot Smilowitz,  “Gadhafi is gone, but what’s left?”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) charged hard after Hillary Clinton on Saturday, saying her responsibility for the 2012 Benghazi, Libya, attacks shows she should never be president.

“I think that Hillary Clinton’s failure to defend our ambassador should forever preclude her from that office,” Paul said at the Iowa Republican Party’s Lincoln Dinner on Saturday.

He accused Clinton, at the time the secretary of State, of failing to adequately protect U.S. Embassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans who died in the 2012 attacks.


“The one thing you have to do as Commander in Chief is defend America and its interest,” Paul said.

He further said Clinton was to blame for Libya becoming what he called a “failed state.”

“Gadhafi is gone, but what’s left?”

Both Paul and Clinton are running for their respective parties’ nominations for the White House in 2016.
