"13 Hours": Could a Hollywood blockbuster about Benghazi derail Hillary Clinton's campaign?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

13 Hours is a new movie by big name action movie director Michael Bay, about the Benghazi consulate seize, the massacre of the American ambassador and the handful of soldiers who died trying to hold off the terrorists.

I can't quite believe Hollywood "greenlit" a movie about this controversial subject.

The White House and Hillary Clinton's State Department tried to play down this disaster, and the U.S. left mocks conservatives who keep questioning what really happened.

Yet it's obvious those Americans in Libya were knowingly left to die: US Special Forces were close by but the White House told them to stand down.

The terror attack occurred on the anniversary of 9/11 but Obama and his gang insisted it had been inspired by an obscure anti-Islam film on YouTube. They even had the filmmaker arrested.

As seen with Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, there's an appetite in "middle America" for patriotic, pro-military films.

Could 13 Hours be a box office hit, too? And could it impact the 2016 US election?

What “truth” are you talking about?

Jimmy Da Silva go back to watching that lying hack Micheal Moore then. Sorry if the truth hurts pathetic children who cannot handle it

The movie will absolutely come out, but it’s not going to focus on Obama or Hillary. It’s not a political movie. It’s a true life story done up as an action movie. Like Bay’s Pearl Harbor.

I would be surprised if this movie gets the light of day. Remember ABC’s the “Path to 911”. You cannot get or find this movie anywhere. The Clintons made sure it would never be seen again. Hilary is extremely popular. I know that is hard to believe. What matters is the moderate or independent voter, and they simply love the Clintons and actually think very well of Obama. I know its hard to believe.

" I wonder how many muslims are going to protest this movie like they did the American Sniper movie." Interesting question. I bought the American Sniper DVD simply because I wanted to see what all the controversy was about. I found it gritty and realistic backed up by what my contacts in the military were able to add or define. Same for the DVD, The Interview. Witty and entertaining. That’s really why we watch movies…entertainment. Benghazi is such a stain though, it would not be unreasonable for some to question how this could even happen, based on real events as it were. Last night I saw Valkyrie, the Tom Cruise flick about the assasination attempt on Hitler during WWII. Also based on real events, which were widely questioned for years after the war.

I’d like to see the movie. Is it starting soon? I don’t know much about Benghazi but would like to know more about it. I wonder how many muslims are going to protest this movie like they did the American Sniper movie. They seem to not give a shit that they are in North America and not in the middle east where all their people are killing thousands of non muslims and are threatening North Americans and democracy.

I love that people think an action movie from hack director Michael Bay is going to make this huge political impact.

I guarantee you that Obama and Hillary will barely be mentioned in the movie if at all. This movie wasn’t made to expose anything politically – it was made to be a popcorn military action movie.

I bought the book “13 Hours”, and believe me, this book is a real page turner that you will not want to put down. The author focuses in on the true heroism of the hired ex-special forces men, hired to keep security for the U.S. foreign service workers. The book does NOT focus in on the U.S. State Department’s (read: Hillary’s) cover up. But what the books teaches the reader is that this was a flat-out military-terrorist attack from the outset, and had nothing whatsoever to do with any “spontaneous demonstration”, i.e., what the Obama people lied about. So the movie might follow the book, and just focus on the ex-special forces people. The movie might not highlight the blatant lies by Obama and his appointees. — David Murrell in Fredericton.

I’ll be seeing the movie.

What are the chances of my disgust with Obama and Clinton increasing after this film? Obama, the most powerful man in the world, has the tenacity to give personal condolences to the victims families. These deaths that he is responsible for.
America’s tolerance of what Obama’s presidential reign has caused is mindboggling. America is not suppose to leave any americans behind. America is not suppose to negotiate with terrorists. Obama heralds his Iran nuclear deal while Iran still has four American hostages. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To the families of the Victims of the Benghazi murders,
Please accept a new round of deep condolences. I am sure the truth of this movie will hurt even more.

I will be taking my whole family. Kilary is disgusting and she needs to go right to jail not the White House. Take Obummer with her.

“Terry Milewski ripped the young Trudeau a new one in his taped radio interview once the election was called asking pointed and tough questions to the would be ruler.” Interesting. Terry’s days at CBC may be numbered however. Hope he has enough in his pension account to retire when the knives come out for not being a Liberal water carrier!

13 hours will rattle the back rooms of power. On occasion however main stream media does surprise. The CBC does have to get credit where credit is due- Terry Milewski ripped the young Trudeau a new one in his taped radio interview once the election was called asking pointed and tough questions to the would be ruler. Mr. Trudeau came as across as unprepared for tough questions from the CBC and being caught off guard was confused and dazed and largely incoherent. I believe the public debates will be hugely entertaining and the end of his run.

Speaking about Michael Moore:

The Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday unveiled its 2015 lineup, which will include the latest project from political filmmaker Michael Moore.

“Where to Invade Next,” Moore’s first new film in six years, has been kept tightly under wraps. In a Periscope video posted on Twitter, Moore said, “It’s a film of epic nature.”

“(There’s) this constant need it seems to always have an enemy — where’s the next enemy so we can keep this whole military industrial complex alive, and keep the companies that make a lot of money from this in business?” Moore said of the inspiration for the film, which was filmed across three continents. “I’ve always been a little bothered by that, so that’s where the comedy comes from.”

“The issue of the United States at infinite war is something that has concerned me for quite some time, and provides the necessary satire for this film,” he went on.

The festival’s website calls “Where to Invade Next” Moore’s “most provocative and hilarious film yet.”

“Moore tells the Pentagon to ‘stand down’ — he will do the invading for America from now on,” the TIFF description states.

“Where to Invade Next” is produced by Dog Eat Dog Films and IMG. The Toronto International Film Festival runs Sept. 10-20.

It’s not official, but let’s hope this movie gives some righteous recognition to the brave souls who died that night – and shines a light on the cockroaches who let them die at the hands of a swarm of Islamist barbarians in order to promote their own political ambitions and Obama’s re-election.
commented 2015-08-03 11:30:20 -0400
John Kerry is Obama’s court jester, and nothing more. He is just the “white suit” that enables Obama to continually deceive the American public. Obama is evil, and it obvious to those of us who are watching him level North America for his Muslim Brotherhood Boys, of which he is one!
commented 2015-08-03 11:20:33 -0400
I’m not really a movie goer, but I think I’ll go to this one for a few reasons. One,to see Michael Bay’s interpretation of the events and compare them to accords I’ve heard from some military info-sec. And two, to piss off Jimmy boy ;p

What happened in Benghazi was a true and disgusting example of how little governments care for their people when they are abroad – you are expendable.

I was in that city not long before this happened – it was a dangerous place and no ’slamic was to be trusted – the hatred was palpable – that embassy should have been closed long before the attack. And all others as well.

Blame the Euros for creating this mess – should have left Gaddafi in power – people in that part of the world only understand strength and power.

Any negotiations between ’slamics and the west always run up against Taqqyia and the final results can never be trusted.

And hillary and barry are liars – they need to be taken out back and have the cat put to their backs. Still better treatment the folks in that embassy got.

Thanks for that Ezra, I’ll be watching for the video/CD.
But. I’ll tell you, I’m really looking forward to next Thursday’s Debate, to see Trump go after Hillary.
That should be entertaining. Rand Paul seems to have lost a bit of enthusiasm.
commented 2015-08-02 23:06:54 -0400
I hope it includes the fact that Hillary closed the curtains and went to sleep while Obama dreamt about his tee off time
commented 2015-08-02 22:43:32 -0400
It is a pleasant change of pace to see a movie released just before an American federal election that does not attack the Republican candidates or party. Hopefully Michael Moore has been hit by a bus or choked on an entire roasted pig and was unable to crank out one of his usual ‘works of art’.
commented 2015-08-02 21:01:11 -0400
I will definitely see this!
commented 2015-08-02 19:44:15 -0400
Sure, I’ll go see it…. Maybe lefties will pull a kim jong un and threaten to blow up any theater that shows it.

Come on Jimmy say it….I know you really want to…..OK I will say it for you……..WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?….:-)
commented 2015-08-02 18:00:39 -0400
Absolutely! I intend to add this film to my DVD collection when it is available. My heart still weeps for the families of those killed and the disgraceful coverup by the Obama administration.

The Benghazi murders were white washed by the clowns in the White house. They must not get away with it.

I will definitely get this movie, on disk, I just won’t go see it in a movie theater. These days I don’t care much for being in crowded gun-free-zones, unarmed…I miss the Big Screen. F***ing terrorists! It’s also a two and a half hour drive each way to the closest movie theater.
Let’s hope the magic of Hollywood’s independent producers can get these criminals and traitors turfed, if not impeached and incarcerated, with no Presidential Pardons for these goons!
