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.
Update: "Four More Things We've Learned:" All roads -- at least today -- lead to Hillary.
