Hicks: Stunned, Embarrassed by Susan Rice Talk Show Appearances

'My jaw dropped'


Under questioning from Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) about Susan Rice’s appearances on Sunday talk shows where she erroneously called the Benghazi attack a spontaneous response to a YouTube video, former Dep. Mission Chief in Libya Gregory Hicks said he was stunned by her remarks.

“I was stunned, my jaw dropped and I was embarrassed,” Hicks said.

Everyone at the embassy thought it was a terrorist attack, Hicks testified.
