Deputy chief of mission for the U.S. in Libya Gregory Hicks testified Wednesday that he was told not to meet with a congressman sent to investigate the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. Hicks said a State Department lawyer accompanied the delegation and attempted to be in every single meeting he was involved in.
Gregory Hicks, the deputy chief of mission for the U.S. in Libya and the highest-ranking U.S. official in Libya after the Sept. 11th attack on the consulate, described loving every day of his 22-year foreign service career until the attacks on the consulate.
Private testimony from the assistant of slain Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens contradicts assertions from the Obama administration. Gregory Hicks will appear before Congress on Wednesday.
