ABC's Terry Moran Lashes Out at Rand Paul for Questioning Hillary: 'Did He Serve in the Military?'

Nightline co-anchor Terry Moran lashed out at Rand Paul on Twitter, deriding the senator for daring to bluntly question Hillary Clinton over her role in the Benghazi scandal. Moran mocked, "Curious: What is Rand Paul's foreign policy background? Did he serve in the military? Did he study, live, do business or charity overseas?"

Of course, what qualifies Paul to question Clinton is that he's a United States senator and Moran isn't. Over the years, Moran, a journalist, has offered his liberal slant on numerous topics, including business and economics. In 2009, the reporter fawned over Michael Moore's left-wing film Capitalism: A Love Story, gushing, "[Moore is] an American populist in the grand tradition, a provocateur, a comic, a rhetorical bomb thrower." What qualifies Moran, who has never run a business, to seriously discuss a film about capitalism?

On Wednesday, Paul grilled Clinton about her role in responding to the terrorist attack in Libya: "Had I been President at the time and I found out you had not read the cables… I would have relieved you of your post."

Moran has a long history of fawning over liberals and attacking conservatives. On Tuesday, he hyped Barack Obama as the "president with a purpose" whose inaugural speech was a "history-making call to action."
