A Voice From Libya Now Haunting Hillary

Greg Hicks was the deputy chief of mission in Tripoli at the time of the attack on Benghazi. He has recently retired from the State Department-and he is talking. Tonight he appeared on Megyn Kelly's show on Fox News. He does not think Hillary Clinton is fit to be president.

Hicks stated that in the months leading up to the attack, the mission was pleading for enhanced security (as we all know). Instead, their security detail was reduced and only two security officers were able to accompany Ambassador Chris Stevens to Benghazi when at least a dozen should have gone.

Hicks blames Clinton for delegating post security matters worldwide to her subordinates when it was the secretary of state who had the legal responsibility.

Hicks was also interviewed by ABC's George Stephanopoulos. He stated that he felt he was punished by the State Department for speaking out

I have a feeling Hicks will be seen and heard a lot in the coming weeks leading up to the election. This man was the deputy chief of mission in Libya., When he speaks, people should listen.

This is a ubiquitous problem throughout the federal government. There is simply too much data to process, too many decisions to make, for it to all fall on one person. Technically, inmates of federal prisons are "committed to the custody of the attorney general," who is hardly able to devote much time to assessing how each prisoner is faring.

President Roosevelt wanted to make some small accommodation for Jewish refugees circa 1940, but a cabal of conservative career civil servants in the State Department managed to sidetrack every presidential initiative.
