Senator Rand Paul Calls For State Dept Firings, Withdrawal from Afghanistan

Anyone making a decision that led to the U.S. Ambassador to Libya's death should at least be reassigned so they can't make decisions like that anymore


Sen. Rand Paul said Thursday that someone in the U.S. State Department needs to lose his or her job over the Sept. 11 attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that led to the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens.

"If someone made a decision that may have cost the ambassador his life, they need to be reassigned at the very least," the Kentucky Republican said after speaking to the Rotary Club of Louisville. "They need to lose their ability to make those decisions again."
