Just days after the attacks, United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on five Sunday news shows with the now discredited tale of demonstrations prompted by a YouTube video. Yet Greg Hicks, who stepped in when Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered in Benghazi, now claims that "from the get-go," he, along with the rest of the Obama administration, knew immediately that this was an act of terror. So when Ambassador Rice was peddling a story at odds with the truth, even contradicting the new president of Libya sitting next to her making the claim that what happened at Benghazi was "preplanned, predetermined," Hicks was beside himself.
"I've never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day," Hicks said. "My jaw hit the floor as I watched this."
