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.
Within hours, Stevens and three other Americans were dead, victims of an armed terrorist assault that has since become a political and foreign policy flashpoint in Washington's partisan wars.

>> Washington’s partisan war
Was Watergate a partisan war?
It's only a "partisan flashpoint" to those who don't care that four Americans died and don't want to hear why.
There was no protest. It began as an armed assault.
It was an armed attack, and the hospital was under the control of the attackers.
Watergate was a partisan war in that it served then what it serves now - the liberal/socialist agenda.
“We’re under attack”....”sorry,Chris,the Commander-In-Chief is boarding Air Force One momentarily to attend a pivotal fundraiser in Vegas.Keep your head down,OK?”
But isnt that the real question that these hearings have brought to light, taxpayers pay billions of dollars so the Pentagon has fast reaction military options available like the FEST, et.al., but at the very outset every military option was taken off the table even though admittedly no one knew how long the attack would last... The key question is why werent these options at least launched? If the media actually did its job then that would be the question that would be demanded a response... Obama said everything that could have been done was done.. That is a lie testimony reveals a whole host of options that were considered and then scrubbed but why? If you question this you are now partisan? How about if you question this you are an American, failing to question it shows just how far your head is up Obamao’s behind. It is way past time for a special prosecutor and he starts putting people under oath in the admin, then the sorry political truth will come out but of course the rats will contine to claim at this point ..... What Does It Matter? Credibility is the answer to that question...
It’s not partisan to the Media when the Right is under scrutiny.
She had more in her budget for protection.
When I heard that the situation had evolved to them going to a safe haven and then that we could not find the ambassador, I alerted my leadership that we needed to go forward and consider the deployment of the Foreign Emergency Support Team, Thompson said during his opening statement.
I notified the White House. They indicated that meetings had already taken place that evening [deciding against deployment], Stevens added, explaining that he was told it was not the right time and it was not the team that needed to go right then.
Obama and Hillary both got their “3 am phone call” and they failed utterly, abysmally to rise to the occasion.
Remember that fuss in the 2008 Democratic primaries, when Hillary ran the attack ad against Obama suggesting that he was too inexperienced to handle a national security “3 am phone call” as well as Hillary would.
Here they both got a “5 pm” phone call (or thereabouts), with hours and opportunities to save the lives of Americans under attack by jihad terrorists.
Both Obama and Hillary failed the “phone call” national security test, completely.
It is really much worse than failing to rise to the occasion. They actively worked against providing help both before and during the attack and then invented a lie out of whole cloth to cover it up.
