We remember when Hillary Clinton blows in the hot seat -- -- Ghazi and does he was asked about -- and so much is being reprimanded the State Department over.
The people who make judgment -- need to be replaced fired and no longer in a position of making these judgment calls had I've been present at that time.
And I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi you did not read the cables from -- Stephens -- relieved you of your post.
Under federal statute and regulations.
Leadership is not grounds for finding a breach of duty.
Our bottom line three months later three months after that no one's been fired.
And -- it's expected to either.
And that makes Republican congressman.
Scott -- furious.
He's trying to do something about it -- very what you're gonna do.
Well we've got a bill where we what we -- power the the the leader of state and -- State Department to actually fire people who are derelict in our duty because right now.
There's this thing called the accountability review board who can kind imply.
Or even say that people have been derelict of their duty in this case for people lost their lives but -- can do nothing about it.
So while I don't know that I necessarily agree with the fact that we need an accountability review board I mean we've got a secretary of state we've got a president and these folks are -- positions and ought to be able look.
Fire people that are derelict of their duty.
We have this accountability review board so my plan is -- while working on some other things to make sure they get some teeth in there.
They can recommend firing of people who are derelict.
-- -- -- You're in the government -- -- but maybe you'd have a better idea that's why is it's so hard to fire people and government in -- mind as -- -- mean if you even -- the wrong way are.
I don't know how bad ratings a year and on your toes.
So in other -- his performance or lack thereof then reward and nor -- -- But not a government they said these committees and -- system and as a review process that could take weeks months even years.
No one is -- -- Well look you know I think that there are some system set up to save some folks we don't like it when the secretary when she was the First Lady went into that then White House Travel Office and fired everybody wholesale just because.
They might not have agreed with -- been a member of her party and and -- think we necessarily agree with that so maybe there's a reason for these review boards but not being able to fire people who are.
Insufficient in their duty to the point where people get killed at those -- -- there's it's like to travel also you would agree or disagree with whether that's wise or even PR wise to do but I -- These are not political appointments these are right these are -- this is something where you would just say stop perform don't performed.
But keep get fired.
Right and then and and I agree absolutely.
I guess this process has been in place there's been I think about nineteen of these review board since 1988 convened.
So this is our process while I think it should be streamlined which is what we're trying to do here the other question really is is we've got a secretary of state.
And if she can't fire people or he can't fire people.
Who can at that point at what point do they did they need to say RB and so the committees working on the next phase of this is just looking at things like that the other thing to consider here is is this.
Accountability review board.
Didn't even question the secretary of state or the deputy we wonder what probability -- have been.
And -- We don't well that's a problem now it is as anyone and do you think anyone well be fired -- to Gaza to hundred times coming got to know each.
It it sure doesn't appear to be that -- I think that the hearing you know we requests it required we get investigations going on but I think.
That the former secretary feels like she's answered adequately in this issue is behind her and of course.
We in the congress don't feel that way at all we don't feel like we get any answers we have no accountability and nobody's been held to task on this for Americans are dead and we know where are we.
Congress and thank you very much.
Thank you very much have a great day.
