In light of testimony given by State Department whistleblowers this week about the September 11 attack in Benghazi, Senator Rand Paul has penned an op-ed in the Washington Times essentially saying former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should never hold high office again.

When I took Hillary Rodham Clinton to task in January for the mishandling of security in Benghazi, Libya, I told her that if I had been president at the time, I would have relieved her of her post. Some politicians and pundits took offense at my line of questioning.

During those hearings, I reminded Mrs. Clinton that multiple requests were sent to the State Department asking for increased security measures. I asked if she had read the cables from Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens asking for increased security. She replied that she was busy and had not read them. I find that inexcusable.
