-- as his top officials coming under fire for targeting and even harassing Tea Party groups and conservative Americans who dared to criticized government spending and waste.
How can -- get away with that US and is it safe to say we can still trust our government -- us right now as a member of the senate foreign.
Relations committee and Homeland Security committees he we're talking about Kentucky senator Rand Paul senator -- -- the IRS on the loose but focusing only on.
Tea Party affiliated groups.
-- reaction and you heard about this before this became a big deal.
Yeah -- and one of the things is designed no one of the groups I've spoken to one of the 912 groups it was inspired by Glenn -- in Lexington Eric Wilson.
As a 912 group there -- thousands of members and they were targeted by the but no what I -- inexcusable as if the president really is outraged by this someone should lose their job.
-- one of my biggest complaints after 9/11.
Was with all the intelligence failures and all the failures to look at massage computer nobody was fired.
Same thing here.
There now saying well maybe they're not allowed to far people.
What kind of government allows you to abuse people for their political speech and believes and then not be fired.
-- with Ben Ghazi no one was ever fired they were transferred and moved around.
Government doesn't get any better because we never let anybody go -- senator this is getting bigger business started this small Cincinnati rogue operation now it's thirty California.
And now in Washington the tentacles are growing let's take a look at some of the people that are somehow linked to this story.
It -- demeanor does censor who you think should go I mean Doug showman he was former IRS commissioner appointed by bush.
Two months after he said he had no idea about targeting it turns out he was told in May about targeting.
Lowest -- senior IRS official are linked to this go back to 2011.
She's running the non -- excuse me the tax exempt.
Cincinnati office should she go.
Well I'm not sure who guys but it surely surely should be investigate anybody was aware of and approved of targeting people for their political beliefs and speech needs to be fired never in this position again and made an example of senator there's no there there the -- United States made it clear yesterday kind of angry.
Fuming he says why he keep -- focus here talking which is nothing new.
What's your reaction to that.
On the targeting with repeat that again a -- -- in Gaza yesterday the president took two questions.
One question but two answers one was the IRS the other one was about being -- he says -- I know they are there and nothing is new about this.
Yeah you know what I would say it's always been biggest to me amend Ghazi is they asked and pleaded for security in advance well in advance and it was denied.
When ambassador Pickering investigated he said well this the decisions were made well below Hillary Clinton.
To me that's the real problem Hillary Clinton should have been involved.
And it is her job as secretary of state to be involved with security in Libya that is not something Michigan -- I just never saw all the cables.
That's exactly why -- -- -- culpable and why don't think she was doing her job is it she wasn't reading the pleas for help and she was letting an underling if that's true.
Letting it -- linked take -- take the fall.
And make these decisions but -- the underlings not party the underlings moved around my guess is -- the underling would fire were fired.
Maybe that spill the beans on who actually was in charge of -- -- securities just so upset -- in the private sector people who actually the CEO or in charge.
Actually pay the price -- take the responsibility not lip service the president not involve the secretary of state not involve the attorney general's not a -- when it comes to you.
The -- IRS commissioners not -- that was just a rogue operation but your dad disagrees with you when it comes to being Ghazi.
He says it is aside Joey here's the quote this is congressman Ron Paul he says the real lesson of the guys who will be not be learned because neither Republicans or Democrats.
Want to hear it but it's our interventionist foreign policy.
And it's unattended consequences.
That created the problems your reaction.
Well my guess is if he were here he would not say all Republicans and I'm sure wouldn't be -- including me in that group.
But what I would say is that the point is is that with Libya and I've made the same point.
Many of the people who wanted to be involved in Libya also wanted to support Qaddafi with arms the year before and then they were for toppling -- the next year.
That's this eagerness to get involved in worsened -- says unintended consequences.
I think it's still yet to be determined what happens in Libya whether the government that takes over is more pro American or less pro American in the previous government same.
Exists in Egypt and the same exists in Syria.
Well sought as a bad guy and Syria I'm also worried about Al -- an al-Qaeda taking over the country.
And actually being more enemies of Israel than the current regime.
Right and -- I -- would you do and try to get that doctor out that help us get bin Laden hopefully you won't give up that fight.
We are working on it and everything we can do to get in free we will do great senator Rand Paul thanks so much.
