Doomed Libya ambassador: 'We're under attack'

Washington (CNN) - Late on the night of last September 11, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens spoke to his deputy for the final time from the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

"Greg, we're under attack," Stevens told Gregory Hicks.

    "Wednesday's hearing is another chapter in what has become an epic back and forth between Democrats and Republicans on Benghazi, "
    One can't have an"epic battle" with Republicans. In this case they've got nothing and they know it.

  2. Wake up People!

    So did they get to the bottom of it?? Did President Obama hop a flight to Libya and help the attackers?? Did President Obama stand there laughing and smoking a cigarette while Ambassador Stevens and the others died?? Is President Obama the President of Libya???

    What a bunch of nonsense. Nothing but witch hunts, filibusters, and money wasted. And still no jobs bill. For those that need to know what a traitor looks like, just look at your current GOP. Ronnie is probably doing backflips in his grave.

    The only new info to this story is that Stevens called Hicks to say the consulate was under attack. That's it.

    Do not misunderstand me: the deaths of our people was tragic. But the Benghazi story is starting to look like the carcass of a roasted chicken at a large dinner party: picked clean. With the continuing lack of new revelations, it's getting offensive morally, not just politically.

    The Ambassador should have known to get out of Lybia earlier. He knew the people, he knew it was a dangerous position to be in and he decided to stay.
    Iraq anyone? How about 9/11? What about all the other attacks on our embassies under the shrub's administration?
    This is ALL about making Hillary look bad because they don't have anything else nor a candidate worth my dog's doo doo.
