Politico: Rand Paul: Hillary Clinton ‘absolutely’ to blame for Benghazi

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said Friday that he considers Hillary Clinton “absolutely responsible” for failing to stop the chaos and bloodshed at the American diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, last September.

Speaking to reporters ahead of his address to the Iowa GOP’s Lincoln Dinner this evening, Paul accused Clinton of ignoring diplomatic security as secretary of State. He expressed disbelief at suggestions that Clinton should be absolved of blame because diplomatic security-related cables never got to her.

Clinton is “absolutely responsible,” Paul said. “She was in charge of the State Department. She was asked repeatedly for increased security for Benghazi. Some of the media have been reporting that because she didn’t read them she’s protected – she wasn’t responsible because she didn’t read them? I fault her absolutely for not reading the cables.”
Paul added, “Part of being in charge is triaging what comes to your desk and what doesn’t come to your desk. And to say that Libya wasn’t important enough for her to be reading the cables from the ambassador asking for more security, I think was inexcusable.”
