Benghazi: Navy Seals Heroes of 2012

I’m waiting to see the movie `13 Hours’ : The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. It’s due out soon in Australia.

This movie is about the Battle of Benghazi when the US Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer, Sean Smith, were killed during the attack on September 11, 2012.

Two ex Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, CIA contractors, were also killed in action.

They were part of a six men team who went on an unauthorised mission to rescue the Americans at the US diplomatic compound. It was known that Ambassador Stevens was trapped there.

They were told to stand down.

These men had served their country in numerous tours of duty. They had wives, children and families waiting for them. However, their strong sense of duty, honour and integrity wouldn’t allow them to sit back and wait.

While people died…

This is a story that has been waiting to be told.

Some people say that there was a big cover up about Benghazi.

There are still many questions about what actually happened there. Why wasn’t a rescue operation initiated immediately to evacuate all US personnel?

The Difference of A Few Hours

Benghazi continues to haunt Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State. She denied making the decisions about Benghazi. Really?

“What difference at this point does it make?” she asked.

The difference is that these four men may still be alive. That’s what.

We don’t leave our people behind. Ever. Especially an Ambassador.


Live Long & Prosper. Peace.
