‘Had I been President, I would have relieved Secretary Clinton of her duties’

WASHINGTON, D.C. - This morning, Sen. Rand Paul attended his first Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, which involved the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and the subsequent deaths of four Americans. Below is video of Sen. Paul's remarks and questions:

As good as his question were, she just blew them off and didn’t give any information about where she was during the attack, was she watching it in real time, where Obama was and why the orders to have the Marines that died to STAND DOWN during the attack.

Did he get to the bottom of it?

Did he ask the question that exposed this administration’s culpability in this matter?

When he said that I think she almost relieved herself.

Had we more like Rand Paul in gubmit, we’d actually have a chance to eliminate low temp failures like the Hillabeast.

But we don’t and no harm was done to the beast.

Incompetency rules, as usual, and we no better off today than we were yesterday.

It will take a singularity to cause a change.

And that change will be CW-II.

Would have been nice if he had help from the other Senators given the little time each had for inquiry. McCain and Johnson helped a little but that's it. You should be more upset that all the head nodders.

Rand kicks Clinton's butt, direct link to vid :

Sen. Rand Paul Questions Secretary Clinton at SFRC Benghazi hearing (vid)

Clinton accepts full responsibility now that she's leaving anyway. I guess in 2015 when she announces her run the MSM will portray her as the hero of Benghazi for 'taking responsibility'. Did she admit to doing anything wrong?

I'm speechless.

Cankles said that there is regulation(s) that state incompetency (my paraphrase) is no reason to remove a "leader"

THAT'S why it's in front of a senate committee ... it can't be morally nor legally removed .. it's a friggin' parasite.

IT is not a typo.

While I do smile at that humor :D

Yes, I do. Men died here. If we cannot provide them any justice other than this ass kissing farce that just occurred, then America is not worth a bucket of spit.

If anyone can’t get to the bottom of anything, it is the fecless, impotent, useless republicans of America.

My hatred and disgust of them knows no bounds.

Anybody remember when Hillary/Bill hired a friend of theirs who’s resume consisted of being a nightclub BOUNCER to head up security for the White House??

Yeah, Hill-Dawg is serious about security.

Bottom Line: The House will not draw up articles of impeachment over Benghazi. This is all so much post election empty drama and Ogumbo and Clinton know it.

Bill said Hillary wasn’t near as good at blowing things off as Monica was, but Huma seems to be satisfied.

I see Hollaryus performance as Secretary of State as being disastrous, HOWEVER, I expect John Kerry to be tenfold worse.On the one hand I am glad to see Hillary gone, but on the other I have a fear of a proven traitor taking over the job.

Thanks for posting that video. Senator Rand Paul was superb in questioning Hillary. She as usual side stepped any responsibility. Whitewater redux.

We all need to thank him for his courage and encourage him to continue holding their feet to the fire since no one else seems to want to do it. His DC phone message box is full, but I was able to get through to his main KY office and also sent him an email.

“”Anybody remember when Hillary/Bill hired a friend of theirs who’s resume consisted of being a nightclub BOUNCER””

Yes, I do but I sure don’t remember his name.. They threw him under the bus as I recall.

I didn’t get to watch 100% of the morning SHOW, but I didn’t hear her say, “I don’t remember”, “I don’t recall”, “I have no memory of that” which I expected. Maybe the questions will be tougher with the House Committee this afternoon and we’ll see some of that. Hopefully the questions will be tough and she’ll lose her cool AGAIN!

The Susan Rice debacle exposes the conspiracy and collusion of the Obamatons as they mulled over, "Wadda we do now that five Americans have been killed"

Tossing Rice a millstone and sending her to Sunday talk shows to tell The Big Lie WRT Benghazi proved to be the coupe d'etat----as Rice sank to the bottom of the Secy of State pool.

FALLOUT Fem libs musta lacerated Obama for forgetting himself and rushing to "rescue" a damsel in distress under Repub attack.

Fems don't like to see "manly" stuff inflicted on independent women.

BTW, was Susan at the inaug? (/snix)

Hillary :’I take full responsibility even though I did nothing wrong and made no mistakes. It was those holdover Bush appointees that screwed everything up. I warned the President to can them but he is just too nice a guy for his own good’

Yes, his name was Craig Livingston. He was a thug from their Arkansas days and he was the one who acquired the hundreds of FBI files on their political enemies.

The official line, accepted without question by the watchdog media, was that nobody knew who hired him. He just sorta showed up one day in the White House offices and got to work.

How is it possible that the Secretary of State does not know if we are shipping arms from Libya to other countries in the region? That statement alone should be grounds for her dismissal.

There aint’ no crying in Congress. If you can’t control your emotions there how can anyone trust your judgement anywhere? I would have demanded her resignation just as I would have demanded Powell’s resignation on September 11, 2001

The ruling class consists of the self appointed ELITE, and they are all above the law.

It’s noting but second rate kibuki theater with the hegemony’s top whore in review.

IOW, Ryan failed. No one wants those questions to be answered.

No one ever raised the possibility to Hillary that Turkey was involved with some type of transaction involving Stevens. She does not even know that Stevens was meeting with Turkish officials just hours before the attack ? Should not the entire Turkish incident been a significant part of any investigation of Benghazi ? Our leaders are beyond useless and they are gonna get many of us killed.
