Gregory Hicks, a former top U.S. diplomat in Libya, said he was effectively “demoted” after questioning United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice’s explanation that the deadly Benghazi attack was the result of a protest over a video.

Mr Hicks testified to members of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday that he was “stunned” and “embarrassed” upon hearing Rice blame an anti-Islam YouTube video for the assault. He said he voiced his concerns, and upon returning to the U.S. received a “blistering critique” of his management style — even though he had recently been praised by both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It is quite obvious that there is confusion and trouble in the ranks of the Obama Administration. Do you think he will try to find a way to blame this one on President Bush too?
