Testifying before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Gregory Hicks, the former deputy chief of mission/chargé d’affairs in Libya, answered questions on Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice blaming a spontaneous demonstration for the Sept. 11, 2012 embassy attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“In a phone call after the interview I asked… [Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs Beth Jones] her why the ambassador had said there was a demonstration when the embassy had reported that it was only an attack,” Hicks said. “She said I don’t know… The sense I got was that I needed to stop the line of questioning.”

The attacks by Islamic extremists killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
