VIDEO: Benghazi Whistleblower Gregory Hicks Describes ‘Saddest Phone Call’ That Ambassador Stevens Died

Testifying in today’s House Oversight Committee hearing about last year’s terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi, former chief of mission at the U.S. embassy in Libya Gregory Hicks became emotional as he described receiving the news that Ambassador Chris Stevens had died: ”At about 3 a.m., I received a call from the prime minister of Libya. I think it’s the saddest phone call I’ve ever had in my life, and he told me that Ambassador Stevens had passed away. I immediately telephoned Washington that news afterwards and, again, accelerated our effort to withdraw from the compound move to the annex.”
