At Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi hearing today, Rand Paul broke ground by being the first politician to ask Clinton directly if she knew anything about these operations; in particular, about a ship containing 400 tons of SA-7 missiles arriving in Turkey, and if America had anything to do with it.
Clinton sidestepped the question: “You’re asking the wrong agency, I don’t know anything about that.”
Which is odd since U.S. officials told The Wall Street Journal in November that “the U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation” and that most of the personnel at the consulate were providing “diplomatic cover” for the CIA Annex.
