Mr. Gregory Hicks testifying to The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

Mr. Hicks: "They were not authorized to travel.  They remained in Tripoli with us. The medic went with the nurse to the hospital to — and his skills to the treatment of and care of our wounded.


Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah):  “How did personnel react to being told to stand down?” 


Mr. Hicks: "They were furious, I will quote Lt. Col. Gibson, he said, 'this is the first time in my career that a diplomat has more balls than somebody in the military.'"
