FLASHBACK: Sen. Rand Paul Accuses Obama White House of Covering Up Benghazi Gun-Running Program (Video)

Back in January Senator Rand Paul suggested that the the Obama Administration may had been smuggling guns to jihadist groups in the Middle East in a possible “international Fast and Furious” gun running operation.

In February Rand Paul weighed in again on the Benghazi terrorist attack telling FOX News there may have been a gun running operation going on in Benghazi.
Paul said,

I really think part of the cause may have been there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and distributing arms to the rebels… They’ve interviewed the captain of the ship. A ship from Libya sailed for Turkey a week before the ambassador was killed. It was full of arms and the interviewed the captain and he actually specifically talks about the distribution of the arms to Syrian rebels… And I think the administration needs to answer are they running guns through Turkey to Syria.”

Tonight CNN reported that “dozens” of CIA operatives were on the ground in Benghazi during the attack.
