As he prepares to make his debut on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Rand Paul says he plans on grilling Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the attacks that killed four Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, when she testifies at his first committee next week.

"I think she has to accept responsibility for Benghazi," Paul told Business Insider during his recent trip to Israel. "That's the problem with government -- government is anonymous and so no one is accountable. The reason you want somebody to be accountable is that you don't want someone to make that decision again."

"She needs to be held accountable for it, and I think she needs to answer questions for it," he said.

Paul added that he plans on demanding Clinton explain what she knew about the deteriorating security situation in Libya and provide details about who denied requests for additional security personnel at the consulate in Benghazi.

"In government, there is usually an incentive to overspend when it comes to security," he said. "You're in charge of security in Benghazi and someone asks you for a 16-person detail -- and the security people on the ground in Libya are asking you for it -- it's impossible to say no. So how did someone possibly say no to that security? That's an incredible ineptness."

"It was an enormous mistake," he added. "It was a career-ending mistake, I think."
