Special Forces in Tripoli Ordered to Stand Down
The House Committee on Oversight and Government released that account from the interview its investigators had with Hicks. This comes after the White House, and the Departments of State and Defense have assured the public that no assets were available to rescue the Americans in the CIA annex. According to the Hill, Hicks who was the ranking diplomat in Lybia once the ambassador had been killed was informed of Steven's death by phone by the Lybian prime minister who agreed to fly the special forces in Tripoli to the besieged annex in Benghazi. Irony! The prime minister of Lybia did more than the president of the United States to save the live of Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
