NEW INFO: Amb. Stevens Was Taken to Hospital Under Enemy Control
In a new revelation that former UN Ambassador John Bolton called "stunning," one of the Benghazi whistleblowers said that the body of Ambassador Chris Stevens was brought to a hospital under the control of terror group Ansar al-Shariah, which was later blamed for the attack on the U.S. Consulate. He said that there were discussions at one point on whether a team needed to be assembled to rescue Stevens from the hospital.
Hicks is a State Department's Foreign Service Officer and former Deputy Chief of Mission/Chargé d’Affairs in Libya.
Republican lawmakers still want to know how the administration’s narrative of the attack was formulated, including when and how it was decided that officials would claim publicly that it was not a planned terror attack.
Other issues include why requests for more security at the U.S. Consulate were apparently ignored and whether the U.S. military could have gotten to Benghazi in time to stave off the attack.
