>>> in the middle of all of those vile attacks on secretary clinton in her benghazi harings, there was one question that left a lot of people confused. it came from the tea party republican senator rand paul.
>> is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow transferring weapons to turkey out of libya .
>> to turkey? i will have to take that question for the record. nobody's ever raised that with me. weapons to turkey? what? secretary clinton clearly had no clue what he was talking about. but, senator paul was so proud of his cooky question, that he went on fox news to brag about it.
>> i think arms are being sold out of libya to turkey. i have no briefing of this, but there have been articles in news print and in the press.
>> no proof. no information. no problem. who is paranoid enough to come up with something so out landish? who could it be? folks, there's only one man for the job.
>> over 400 tons of weapons.
>> they put it on a ship. he uses ambassador stevens as the point man with this guy. and they funnel through turkey the weapons to the jihadists on the border.
>> of course, now it all makes sense. from glen beck 's chalk board to the united states senate . beck started pushing these theories back in october claiming that president obama was funneling weapons from libya to jihadists in syria. from there, it jumped to fox news and then the gop senate. that's exactly how they move to the mainstream. senator paul , did you think we'd let you get away with all of that turkey talk? nice
