13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (a movie blurt)

An eye-opening film from the perspective of the security team that survived the 9/11/12 Benghazi attack, the story is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book, 13 Hours. The book is a true account of events that resulted in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, primarily because they were outgunned and outnumbered. Anyone who is not quite clear about the controversy behind the Benghazi fiasco might want to see this film for a reality check. That’s because five out of the six private military contractors who actually fought to defend the other Americans in a compound recount how the help they received was not enough and came way too late. A must-see to get another perspective, or perhaps the only perspective as some parties are not forthcoming with all the facts. This is a well done film with engaging characters, one of whom is played by John Krasinski.

  1. Oh! It’s that Michael Bay movie! I’ve seen the trailer and was amazed by all the explosions going on, but nothing about the plot really glued to me afterwards. Adding that book to my immense TBR list though; sounds like something that could really be eye-opening.
