DCM Now A Desk Officer
By Harold Hutchison
Greg Hicks has recently been serving as a desk officer in the Foreign Service, a demotion from his former position as Deputy Chief of Mission. Hicks also detailed how he began receiving a “blistering critique” of his management style.
Hicks also said that prior to the attack, he had never received criticism, often receiving high praise for his conduct during and after the attack. He reported that his supervisor had not raised the issues prior to him asking her why UN Ambassador Rice had claimed that protests surrounding the Youtube video “Innocence of Muslims” played a role in the attack.
Hicks is testifying in this hearing as a whistleblower. Has the Obama Administration been retaliating against those who want to tell the truth about Benghazi?
