Benghazi: When the 3:00 AM Phone Call Arrives

It’s all fun and games and campaign ad slogans, until the 3:00 AM phone call really does arrive:

“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 and move to the annex.”


— Gregory Hicks, the former chief of mission at the U.S. embassy in Libya.

As Bryan Preston asks, “How Do We Make Sense of Obama’s, Clinton’s and Panetta’s Actions During the Benghazi Attack?”

Update: “Four More Things We’ve Learned:” All roads — at least today — lead to Hillary.
