Hat tip Creeping Sharia
Last night, my wife and I went to see "13 Hours", the movie about the attack on our mission in Benghazi by the Libyan Al Qaeda-connected terror group, Ansar al Sharia. As advertised, it was a powerful movie, and I urge everyone to see it. It will leave you asking why US forces could not have been mobilized to come to their rescue. (I guess we have been asking that question for over three years now, haven't we?) This was a dual attack that began at the US mission at about 7:30 pm and carried over to the CIA annex only ending when Libyan forces came and escorted the Americans to the airport for evacuation. During all of that, one of the dead, Glenn Doherty, responded with others from Tripoli to Benghazi, was delayed for hours getting to the annex, only to die heroically defending it.
Keep in mind that three of the surviving heroes portrayed in this film have come out publicly. They appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News TV show and said that the movie is factually accurate. In the film, the CIA station chief is portrayed as having tried to stop the security contractors from responding to the mission when it was attacked. (That person, now retired and identified only as, "Bob", has given an interview in which he denies the charge.)
It might be a sad commentary on today's society, but how ironic if it would take a movie to finally turn enough American's against Hillary Clinton to bring an end to her presidential hopes.
And if that isn't enough, we have this news story coming out of Missouri (hat tip Creeping Sharia).
A final note: When 13 Hours ended, the audience applauded. That doesn't happen with too many films. Consider that.
