Paul: Bill Clinton Would've Fired His Secy of State for Benghazi Attack
Sen. Rand Paul said on "Outnumbered" that Hillary Clinton's failure to provide adequate security to the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi would have gotten her fired in her husband's administration.
The Republican presidential candidate based that conclusion on former President Bill Clinton firing his Secretary of Defense Les Aspin in 1993 over the loss of American lives in Mogadishu, Somalia.
Aspin had refused a request to provide extra military equipment for the U.S. mission. Paul argued that in 2012, Hillary Clinton's State Department denied requests for additional security in Benghazi.
"I think if Bill Clinton had been president ... he would have let Hillary Clinton go for not doing her job, the same way with Les Aspin," Paul said.
