Hillary Clinton's "disastrous" record as former secretary of state — and her role in the deadly Benghazi attacks — show why she's unqualified to be the nation's president, according to critic Edward Klein.

In his blog Tuesday, the former New York Times journalist and author of "Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary," writes Clinton's "claim to commander in chief status was demolished" on Sept. 11, 2012, "in Benghazi, where four Americans lost their lives, including our ambassador to Libya."

"If this tragedy had been inflicted on any other major industrialized country, the foreign minister would have been forced to resign," he writes.

"That's exactly what Hillary should have done — taken responsibility for Benghazi and resigned. The fact that she is still trying to wiggle her way out of taking any blame is proof that she is not qualified to be commander in chief of the United States."

But her record is marred by other failures too, according to Klein.

According to Klein, Clinton was advised by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to "hit some foreign policy home runs" as secretary of state.

"But when she tried to follow his advice — as she did in Libya, the 'reset' with Russia, and the 'pivot' to Asia — the results were disastrous," he writes.

"Libya became a breeding ground for the Islamic State; the Russian 'reset' gave Vladimir Putin an excuse to annex Crimea; and the Asian 'pivot' encouraged Beijing to create an archipelago of militarized islands in the South China Sea."
