The first-term senator went on to compare Benghazi to the 1993 mission in Mogadishu, Somalia, in which 18 U.S. military members were killed. Two months after the tragedy, President Bill Clinton announced the resignation of Les Aspin, then secretary of the defense. Aspin had taken heat for denying security requests for U.S. forces in the region just a month before the attack.
“He ignored the request and he resigned ultimately in disgrace,” Paul said. “I think had Hillary Clinton worked for Bill Clinton, she’d probably have been fired.”
Paul has been hounding Clinton over foreign policy and Benghazi for the past year, and he frequently brings up the former secretary of state as he lays his own groundwork for a possible presidential campaign.
