The deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya during a 2012 attack on a diplomatic outpost in Benghazi told investigators he thought the strike was "a terrorist attack from the get-go," according to interview excerpts released Sunday on CBS News's "Face The Nation."

"I thought it was a terrorist attack from the get-go. I think everybody in the mission thought it was a terrorist attack from the beginning," Gregory Hicks said in an interview with investigators shared with "Face The Nation." The excerpt was one of several host Bob Schieffer revealed on the program.
