Publisher's Summary

Written by the team of former Special Operations warriors who run, here is the definitive account of what happened before, during, and after the deadly Benghazi attack.
On September 12th, 2012, Brandon Webb learned Glen Doherty, one of his closest friends and his former Navy SEAL teammate, was killed alongside Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and two other Americans when the U.S. State Department and CIA headquarters in Benghazi, Libya, were sieged in a shocking terrorist attack.
For the next four months, Webb and his team at, the world's premier Special Ops website, embarked on a relentless investigation to understand exactly what happened to their countrymen, as well as the roles played by the Obama administration, State Department, and CIA. Drawing on unmatched sources, they spoke to individuals who would talk to no one else, including fellow Special Operations team members familiar with the African theatre, and well-placed contacts in the Washington intelligence community. This is their report - an unforgettably gripping minute-by-minute narrative of the events and their aftermath as they really unfolded on that terrible day in Libya.

Beware of definitive reports

If you are looking for a near complete absolution of President Obama's handling or mishandling of the Benghazi, Libya debacle, this is your book. The authors rely on the word of Obama appointees; his Joint Chiefs Chairman, Gen. Martin Dempsey, for example, who acts like a surrogate rather than a wise counselor to his Commander in Chief.

The authors rejected reports that General Carter Ham (Commander, U.S. Africa Command) in violation of orders, attempted to aid desperate American officials under siege in Benghazi for which he was relieved of command. "Great story, but completely false," the authors say, citing Obama appointee General Martin Dempsey who wrote:

"The speculation that General Carter Ham is departing Africa Command (AFRICOM) due to events in Benghazi, Libya on 11 September 2012 is absolutely false. General Ham's departure is part of routine succession planning that has been on going since July."

The authors wrote: "Contrary to the many media myths about Benghazi, requests for help were not denied by the Obama administration."

So there you have it. "Definitive!"

Great background and historical info

Great background and historical info for "13 Hours." Gives more perspective on who was involved and the facts about blaming a cartoon video for what happened. This area has been a hot bed of issues for the west since the 1700's
