Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had a heated exchange with Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky this morning during her testimony on Capitol Hill.
Her mistakes, he added, “cost people their lives.”
“It’s inexcusable that you did not read these cables,” Paul said. “I would have relieved you of your post.”
Clinton, for her part, defended her actions. “The administration has sent officials to the Hill thirty times,” she said. “We’ve been as transparent as we can.”
