Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a Senate hearing that if he were the president at the time of the Benghazi consulate attack, he would have fired her, adding that “I think it’s inexcusable.” He also said her stepping down indicates that she accepts “the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11.” Um, I am guessing the Newtown school massacre doesn’t count. How come he was so quiet when on Condoleezza Rice’s role in the mess in Iraq?

Hillary Clinton leaves behind an impressive 20-year history in Washington D.C. and I scarcely believe what happened in Benghazi, as unfortunate as it was, will derail any presidential aspirations she may have for 2016.

  • Janet:

    I am forced to agree with your assessment of yourself.

    50 years of history of the Progressive machine dominating the Black community has not derailed your intent at SALVATION THROUGH POLITICS. I can’t imagine that you will allow “An imperialist attack on Libya” that was sold as a “Humanitarian Mission” or the active insertion of the CIA (and Drones) into a sovereign African nation to become a “deal killer” for you.

    I only worry that you won’t be able to make note of the heightened NATO action on the African continent at present and be able to make ANALYSIS – INDEPENDENT of your ideological and partisan interests.
