Gregory Hicks, the former Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya who testified before Congress about the 9/11 attacks on an American diplomatic facility earlier this year, believes he has been “punished” for speaking out about the Obama administration’s response the night of the attack. He said he believes at least two of the Americans lost that night could have been saved in the United States had responded in time.
Hick said he will continue to talk about the attacks because “the American people need to have the story” of what took place that night and the four Americans who were lost in the attacks “should be remembered.” He also believes that former Navy SEALS Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, who died eight hours after the initial attack on the diplomatic mission, could have been saved.
While Hicks still remains on staff at the State Department, he has not been reassigned a post since being called back from Libya. In a statement to This Week, the State Department said Hicks was not removed from Libya due to statements about the Benghazi attacks and is working on reassigning him.
